  1. Development of HOM Couplers for the LHC Superconducting Crab Cavities

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 29c

    As part of the planned luminosity upgrade for the Large Hadron Collider at CERN the HiLumi project), compact crab cavities are under development. These cavities will rotate the hadron bunches at the interaction point to produce more effective collisions. To get the high gradients needed to meet the needs of the LHC main ring, superconducting RF has been chosen for these cavities. In collaboration ...

  2. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: 9020168R

    methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...

    SBC: SFP WORKS, LLC            Topic: 02b

    The Department of Energy (DOE) has pursued multiple strategies for making vehicles lighter and more fuel efficient. Past efforts have focused on either developing technologies to replace heavy steel components or using high-strength steels to reduce the amount of steel needed for the same load-bearing capacity. However, these techniques have proved problematic because the former requires expensive ...

  4. Tailoring Cementitious Materials Towards Value-Added Use of Large CO2 Volumes

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 13c

    The massive quantities of concrete used worldwide (estimated at 30 billion tons/yr), and the susceptibility of concrete to carbonation provide opportunities for chemical binding of significant quantities of carbon dioxide. The resulting carbonates can enhance the material properties of concrete by supplementing the binding effects of cement hydrates. Carbonation of concrete without tailoring its c ...

  5. High Ion-Accessible Surface Area CNT-Ultracapacitors for Groundwater Desalination


    Freshwater is a vital resource for human survival as well as a key component of a wide range of industrial and agricultural needs. However, only 0.65% of the worlds water resources are available as freshwater, and the demand on the worlds water reserves continues to increase, with the demand beginning to outpace the supply in many areas. A water-energy nexus is being reached that requires low-cost ...

  6. TiPAD- Titanium Puck and Densification Technologies for Affordable Mass Production of Automotive and Aerospace Components

    SBC: Temper Inc            Topic: 07b

    The titanium puck and densification (PAD) program addresses the problem of mass producing lightweight, high temperature engine components for automotive applications. The solution is to create a contaminant-free, self-skinned puck from inexpensive powdered titanium and rapidly densify it into a solid near-net shape component that is over 99.9% porosity free using mass production techniques. The Ph ...

    SBC: H3D            Topic: 19c

    The goal of this work is to enable the Polaris technology platform to meet the needs of the nuclear materials accounting and control community. The current product, Polaris-H, can offer room- temperature high-resolution spectroscopy (1% FWHM at 662 keV) and omni-directional Compton imaging in a package that weighs less than 10 lbs with a 5 hour battery life. This capability makes the Polaris platf ...

  8. Developing Aggregated Datasets to Standardize the Collateral Valuation Process Utilizing an Economic Pricing Model.

    SBC: Energy Sense Finance, LLC            Topic: 06b

    Due to the difficulty in developing credible opinions of value for solar assets, there is a disconnect between traditional mortgage lending which uses established appraisal methodologies and current solar lending efforts which are limited in their ability to utilize those same tried and true appraisal methodologies. This disconnect restricts the amount of capital available for the solar market eve ...

  9. Temperature-Emissivity-Separation TES) with Combined Fluid Flow Hyperspectral Radiation Simulations

    SBC: Thermoanalytics, Inc.            Topic: 01c

    An important tool in the regulation and monitoring of nuclear proliferation is remote sensing involving the analysis of thermal hyperspectral images. The hyperspectral radiance of a suspected target can be decomposed separated) into components related to the targets spectral emissions, reflections of its surroundings, and atmospheric effects using Temperature- Emissivity-Separation analysis. ...

  10. Extracting Signature Features from Seismo-Acoustic Data for Automated Algorithm Development Title on narrative: Correlating Signature Features with Processes of Interest Using Collected Seismo-Acoustic Data Sets)

    SBC: QUANTUM TECHNOLOGY SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: 01d

    Persistently monitoring of process facilities by recording seismo-acoustic S-A) data over the long- term naturally results in very large quantities of data. After converting the data into more useable forms, skilled analysts must spend time systematically perusing all data for signals of interest, requiring a large investment of labor hours. Furthermore, manual analysis also makes it difficult to ...
