  1. SBIR Phase II: Functionally Graded Cemented Tungsten Carbide-- Process and Properties

    SBC: HEAVYSTONE LABORATORY LLC            Topic: PhaseII

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop an innovative process which can transform conventional cemented tungsten carbide (WC-Co), the most widely used industrial tool material, into functionally graded cemented tungsten carbide (FG WC-Co). Compared to the homogeneous structure of conventional WC-Co, FG WC-Co has a harder surface and tougher core due to a gra ...

  2. SBIR Phase II: Materials for Renewable Energy Systems

    SBC: Oscilla Power, Inc.            Topic: PhaseII

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will demonstrate a prototype wave energy harvester using advanced materials developed in the Phase I effort. We have developed a patented concept for wave energy harvesting using low-cost magnetostrictive alloys. This technology shows promise as a means for delivering utility-scale electric power to the grid at a price that is competi ...

  3. SBIR Phase II: Commutational Ramp Load Disk Drive Actuator

    SBC: BLW            Topic: PhaseII

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will design, build, test, and validate a fully operational prototype disk drive incorporating a commutational ramp load actuator (CRLA). The CRLA is a unique and transformative actuator for disk drives that provides significant improvements over existing actuator technology by increasing performance and reducing cost. The research obj ...

  5. THIN NA-BETA-ALUMINA ELECTROLYTES BY ELECTROCHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (EVD) FOR SODIUM-SULFUR BATTERIES

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NA-BETA-ALUMINA IS THE SOLID ELECTROLYTE MEMBRANE USED IN SODIUM-SULFUR BATTERIES WITH APPLICATIONS IN LOAD LEVELING, ELECTRIC AUTOMOBILES, AND SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS. THE STATE-OF-THE-ART ELECTROLYTES ARE FABRICATED BY GREEN-FORMING FOLLOWED BY SINTERING AT ~1540 DEGREES CENTIGRADE. ENCAPSULATION IN PLATINUM CONTAINERS OR MAGNESIA CRUCIBLES IS NECESSARY TO PREVENT LOSS OF SODA. TYPICAL THICKNES ...

  6. SBIR Phase II: Fluorescent Polymeric Nanoparticles

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop a new generation of fluorescence amplifying reagents based on poly (phenylene ethynylene (PPE)) nanoparticles. Because of the role of the amplifying polymer in the enhanced sensitivity of these compounds, these compounds are called Amplimer reagents. The project will develop and launch two types of Amplimer reagents: mic ...
