  1. High Rate Ammonia Synthesis by Intermediate Temperature Solid-State Alkaline Electrolyzer (ITSAE)

    SBC: Storagenergy Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    Ammonia is not only one of the most produced chemicals worldwide for fertilizer, but also a real carbon-neutral liquid fuel (CNLF), which is important for renewable energy storage and transportation. The well-known traditional Haber-Bosch (HB) process annually generates more than 120 million metric tons of ammonia for fertilizer, with about ~1.0% of the world’s annual energy consumpti ...

  3. Development of Solid-state Optical Cooler Materials to Replace Conventional Cryocoolers Usedfor Cooling SWIR and LWIR Infrared Detectors and Focal-plane-arrays

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: CBD171001

    We propose an all-fiber approach to heat removal from devices such as IR and LWIR detectors and sensors. In our approach, the cooling fibersegment, the pump fiber laser, and the optical fiber used for photon waste removal are all integrated into a single fiber configuration. NPPhotonics' high efficiency fiber lasers are used to pump high purity doped glass fibers, which provide the cooling action ...

  4. Radiation-Hard DC-DC Converter

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: 28h

    The upgrade of the physics experiments for the High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) at CERN is currently driving the development of new and more efficient powering schemes to cope with the increase of power demanded by the new high-density front-end electronics boards. Due to the high radiation levels of up to hundreds of Mrad at the HL-LHC, commercial DC-DC converters cannot be used in these powering sc ...

  5. High Resolving Power, Broadband Spectroscopy for Nuclear Materials Control

    SBC: Catalina Scientific Instruments, LLC            Topic: 30c

    The monitoring of spent nuclear fuel is not only critical to the operational safety of power plants, but also for nuclear materials control and accountability. Furthermore, up to 30% of energy may be recovered from reprocessed spent nuclear fuel, reducing high level radioactive waste. While radiation sensors may provide measurements of radioactivity, they often lack material selectivity to fully c ...

  6. Continuously Variable Displacement Engine Concept Validation

    SBC: Engine Systems Innovation, Inc.            Topic: 14d

    The gasoline engine is the prevalent engine in use today for automobiles and light trucks. In spite of the growth of various hybrids, clean diesel, and electric vehicles, it is projected to be in 71% of the vehicles produced globally in 2022. The gasoline engine has very poor efficiency at partial load typical of its usage in automobiles. Automobile engines can typically produce 200 or even 300 ho ...

  8. AOTF Based Spectro-Polarimetric Imaging System for Stand-off Chemical Detection

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: CBD13104

    Our goal in this SBIR project is to develop a lightweight, low-power, inexpensive hyperspectral spectro-polarimetric imaging sensor for wide area standoff detection of chemical agents. The imaging system will employ an acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF) that operates in the LWIR wavelength range. The sensor will have polarimetric imaging capabilities which, adds a valuable signature feature to im ...

  9. Development of Low Cost Infrared Focal Plane Arrays For Passive Chemical Detection Using Colloidal Quantum Dots

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: CBD13105

    We propose to develop low cost extended range Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Focal Plane Arrays (FPAs) using Colloidal Quantum Dots (CQDs) technology. We have successfully produced a SWIR FPA camera with a resolution of 640 x 512 pixels and a sensitivity from 0.4 mm to 1.7 mm at room temperature. Our first initiative will be to extend the operational wavelength range to 2.5 mm, and then 3.0 mm. We hav ...

  10. Open-Path Spatial Ring Down Spectrometer for Chemical Vapor Detection

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD171004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop an open-path spatial ringdown spectrometer (OP-SRS) for the detection and quantification of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). This approach enables sensitive and selective detection of the chemicals of interest over a broad dynamic range down to the 10 minute negligible military exposure guideline (MEG) level. Thi ...
