  1. A Novel Low Cost, High Efficiency, Algal Biomass Harvest and Dewatering Technology for Biodiesel Production

    SBC: ACENT LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: N/A

    Governments and industry have recently placed significant emphasis on finding affordable renewable fuels to supplement and/or replace fossil fuel use. Biodiesel produced from microalgae has been identified as a highly attractive option for affordable renewable fuel. This project will develop a low cost, high-efficiency algal biomass harvest and dewatering process. In Phase I, a small scale syst ...

  2. Improved Superconducting Accelerator System for Next Generation Light Sources

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Modern synchrotron light sources have come to rely upon superconducting radio frequency (SRF) acceleration to achieve high luminosity. To date, the workhorse in this area has been the SRF system developed by Cornell in the mid-1990¿s for the CESR-B machine. However, as the quest for higher performance continues, this system is being stretched beyond its design limits. Required increases in inp ...

  3. High Power Fundamental Power Coupler for Next Generation Light Sources

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Future third generation light sources, such as the NSLS-II synchrotron light source proposed for Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), push the operating current and subsequent beam power to levels beyond the capabilities of single CESR-B/KEKB cavities. The proposed light source requires 500mA and 1000kW of radiated beam power that must be provided through the power couplers/windows. The develop ...

  4. Development of Alternative Reduced-Cost Helium Vessels for ILC Cavities

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The International Linear Collider (ILC) represents the next great undertaking for the worldwide high energy physics community. In addition to technical challenges posed by the project, the political realities demand a reduction in the cost of the components of this massive facility. The helium vessels that enclose each of the 16,000 superconducting cavities have been identified as a cost driver ...

  5. Collective Protection for Military Working Dogs

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD08103

    Shelter enclosures for military working dogs in the event of a CB attack is a technology gap identified by the Joint Requirements Office. Important parameters to consider in the design of protective enclosures include low weight and size to minimize transport requirements; rapid setup; and accommodation of canine physiological and psychological comfort needs while providing protection against CB ...

  6. Optically Pumped High Power Solid State Switch

    SBC: APPLIED PULSED POWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Advanced high-power solid state switches are desired to improve energy efficiency, increase lifetime, and decrease operating costs of RF accelerators. This project will develop compact, low cost, optically pumped silicon switches that can achieve (1) current risetimes less than 50 ns while operating at up to 10 kA peak current, (2) di/dt > 100 kA/µs, and (3) a capability of blocking >5 kV. The ...

  7. INEXPENSIVE PATHWAYS FOR THE SYNTHESIS OF BORONOPHENYLALANINE AND NEW BORON CONTAINING AGENTS

    SBC: BORON BIOLOGICALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY (BNCT) HAS A CLEAR THEORETICALADVANTAGE OVER OTHER TECHNIQUES AS A METHOD OF DELIVERING CELL-KILLING RADIATION TO CANCEROUS TUMORS. COMPOUNDS CONTAINING THE ELEMENT BORON, SUCH AS BORONOPHENYLALANINE (BPA), CAN ALSO SELECTIVELY LOCALIZE IN SKIN CANCERS SUCH ASMALIGNANT MELANOMA. UPON IRRADIATION BY A THERMAL OR EPITHERMAL NEUTRON BEAM, THE COMPOUND PRODUCES LOCALIZED ...
