  1. Unstructured Mesh Technologies for Massively Parallel Simulation and Data Analysis of Magnetically Confined Plasmas

    SBC: SIMMETRIX INC.            Topic: 23c

    The simulation of magnetically confined plasmas requires consideration of multiple overlapping scales. Continuum models address reactor scale behaviors, while particle methods capture fine scale behavior. The complex combination of physics and reactor geometry results in simulations involving massive calculations and data sets, which can only be executed on parallel computers. Thus, there is a cri ...

  2. Commercialization of an Ultra-Thin, Bendable, High Efficacy OLED Light Engine

    SBC: OLEDWorks LLC            Topic: 10b

    OLED lighting panels have been available commercially for several years, with relatively slow adoption into commercial and consumer fixtures in the US. This project addresses both channels through the commercialization of an ultra-thin, bendable, high-efficacy OLED light engine in which a panel and driver are engineered together in one low-cost, easy-to-use package. The most significant benefit of ...

  3. Development of the Ultra-Low Loss Superconducting Resonators Integrated with Detectors for Frequency-Domain Multiplexing Readout of Future Cosmic Microwave Background Experiments

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: 28f

    Superconducting transition edge sensors are a key technology for measuring the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation leftover from the early universe. To reach the large number of sensors (~400,000-500,000) needed for next generation experiments, solutions must be found to reduce time, weight, size, and cost of the sensor arrays. This project addresses these issues by both integrating the sensors ...

  5. Supporting Multi-Physics Workflowsfor Advanced Nuclear Reactor Simulation

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 29d

    The US Department of Energy’s Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation (NEAMS) Toolkithas accelerated both the solutions to existing problems and deployment of new designsfor current and advanced reactors. The task of coupling these tools into integrated workflows has now become a significant impediment to timely, cost-effective modeling and simulation for ad- vanced nuclear system design ...

  6. Integrated, Interoperable Software Environment for Fusion Simulation and Data Analysis Tools

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 20c

    The promise of fusion energy is enormous - an energy system whose fuel is obtained fromsimple ingredients, and which yields zero carbon emissions to the atmosphere. However, realizing this vision requires undertaking one of the most challenging programs of scientific research and development that has ever been undertaken. Predictive simulation plays a crucial role in fusion energy research. Such s ...

  7. Picosecond Timing Measurement IC for Particle Physics Experiments

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: 27j

    Several high energy physics experiments require accurate timing measurements and transient digitization at high sampling rates, equaling or exceeding 5 gigasamples per second (GSPS). To date, only a few transient digitizer chips have been developed for this purpose and they are based on storing the analog samples onto long buffers from which they are digitized with low-rate analog-to-digital conve ...

  8. Novel Algae Technology for CO2 Utilization

    SBC: Helios-NRG, LLC            Topic: 18c

    There is an urgent need to significantly reduce CO2 emissions from coal burning power plants. Current CO2 capture technologies are too expensive and not economically viable. A new technology that can capture ~90% of the CO2 and significantly reduce the cost of capture is required for commercial viability. Statement of How this Problem is Being Addressed:This project is aimed at the development of ...

  9. Wide dynamic range x-ray Mixed-Mode Pixel Array Detector

    SBC: Sydor Instruments, LLC            Topic: 09a

    Synchrotron light sources and X-ray free electron lasers are now generating shorter pulses with more intense light than ever before possible. The capabilities of these new sources grant unprecedented access into the workings of the natural world. X-ray detectors, as they currently stand, cannot accommodate the large dynamic range of collected x-rays in modern scattering experiments. This capabilit ...

  10. Keck-PAD Fast-Framing Hybrid X-ray Pixel Array Detector

    SBC: Sydor Instruments, LLC            Topic: 04a

    The capabilities of modern x-ray light sources have opened up new areas of research in the study of in-situ fast irreversible processes. Irreversible processes or “single shot” experiments are challenging since they require detectors that can obtain a succession of x-ray images within the time frame of the process in question. This requires high sensitivity, wide dynamic range x-ray detection ...
