  1. A Miniaturized, Lower Cost Static Diffusion Chamber for Cloud Condensation Nuclei Measurements

    SBC: Handix Scientific LLC            Topic: 25c

    The impacts of aerosol on cloud properties remains a major obstacle to better understanding of Earth’s changing energy budget and quantifying their impacts is a DOE objective and of broader benefit to the public. Cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) have a potentially major impact on cloud droplet number and size, and thereby affect cloud radiative properties, cloud lifetime, and precipitation. Impro ...

  2. Large-Aperture 6 T Dipole for Ion Storage Ring

    SBC: Accelerator Technology Corporation            Topic: 30g

    ATC requests Phase 1 SBIR funding to develop a 2-layer NbTi Cable-in-Conduit (CIC) conductor suitable for a large-aperture 6 T dipole. ATC has successfully developed a single-layer 13 kA NbTi CIC cable, and our collaborators at Texas A&M University (TAMU) have successfully used it to make a 3 T dipole suitable for the arcs of a 100 GeV Ion Ring that has until now been the baseline design for JLEIC ...

  3. Low-cost and Efficient Cooling of on-Detector Electronics Using Conformal Thermoelectric Modules

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: 29d

    Thermoelectric coolers (TECs) are solid-state devices with no moving parts and working fluids to provide reliable cooling power compared to traditional cooling systems such as vacuum compressors. However, their relatively high cost, small form factor and low efficiency have relegated them to niche applications such as small scaled portable coolers and yet to justify the large volume cooling compet ...

  4. Highly Selective Anion Exchange Membranes for Non-aqueous Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 19a

    There is a need for long duration energy storage at wind farms and solar photovoltaic facilities and redox flow cell batteries could potentially solve this problem. Non-aqueous redox flow batteries are superior to the more common aqueous flow batteries because they can avoid the problems caused by the breakdown of water at high voltage. However, most non-aqueous flow batteries are based on transit ...

  5. Thermal Interface Materials for Cooling High-Power Electronics

    SBC: Skyhaven Systems, LLC            Topic: 29d

    The Department of Energy is soliciting advancements in cooling high power density electronics such as RF devices used in the PIP-II MEBT beam deflector. GaN FETs in particular have a five times lower capacitance and five times faster switching speed than traditional MOSFETs, and thus are being integrated into particle beam choppers and beam deflectors at Fermilab. The thermal management needs of t ...

  6. Polymer Derived Ceramic Materials and Processes for Joining of Nuclear-Grade SiC-SiC Composites

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 20b

    To achieve energy security and clean energy objectives, the United States must develop and deploy clean, affordable, domestic energy sources as quickly as possible. Nuclear power will continue to be a key component of a portfolio of technologies that meets our energy goals. Key R&D objectives that address challenges to expanding the use of nuclear power includes developing technologies that can im ...

  7. TTDAQ: A Continuous Flow, Timing and Trigger DAQ System

    SBC: Telluric Labs LLC            Topic: 28b

    The nuclear physics data acquisition systems are challenged by the increasing demand for flexibility, accuracy, volume of data and processing speed, massive scalability, upgradability, and lower acquisition operations and maintenance costs. General precision timing synchronization for all Detector and DAQ components provides novel and original solutions to these problems especially if it can be ac ...

  8. Composite Membrane for Production of Carbon Based Fuels

    SBC: Skyhaven Systems, LLC            Topic: 19b

    Skyhaven Systems, LLC proposes to develop a new proton conducting membrane for use with carbon-based fuel photoelectrochemical (PEC) generation systems. A cost-effective alternative to current membrane materials that reduces the permeability of various by-products for improved efficiency and safety is sought. Skyhaven proposes to address these requirements by developing a composite membrane based ...

  9. Computational Tool for Modeling and Design of Rugged GaAs- based Polarized Electron Sources

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 30d

    High-current, high-brightness, spin-polarized electron beams are required for next generation electron-ion colliders (EIC). Proposed cathode designs are based on negative electron affinity (NEA) GaAs. A major limitation of these cathodes is their operational lifetime due to their susceptibility to damages in electron guns. Recent experiments done in Cornell University have demonstrated that a NEA ...

  10. Oxygen Selective Metal Organic Framework Adsorbents for High Efficiency Air Separation

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 23b

    While cryogenic ASU is the technology of choice to supply oxygen to large plants, they are very expensive and includes complex hardware that prevent to cost-effective scale down and use in small installations. At small scale, pressure swing adsorption (PSA) is widely used. PSA is based on the selective reversible adsorption of nitrogen (but not oxygen) onto molecular sieve sorbents. The convention ...
