  1. A Microfluidic Ice Nucleating Particle Counter for Continuous Measurements from Small Aerial Platforms

    SBC: Handix Scientific LLC            Topic: 23a

    Quantifying atmospheric aerosol, clouds and precipitation processes are critical needs for understanding and interpreting Earth’s changing energy budget, is a DOE objective, and is of broader benefit to the public. Specifically, the formation of ice in the atmosphere depends on the nature and abundance of ice nucleating particles, and has major implications for precipitation and cloud interactio ...

  2. Energy Dense Batteries Based on Highly Conductive Solid Electrolyte and Cathode Materials

    SBC: Soild Power, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    Higher energy, safer and lower cost rechargeable batteries leading to higher performing and increased market adoption of a wide array of products such as electric vehicles among several others. Current lithium-ion batteries have a specific energy of approximately 200 Wh/kg while it is desired to develop rechargeable batteries with specific energy in excess of 400 Wh/kg. Further, it i ...

  3. A Highly Miniaturized Cloud and Aerosol Instrument Package for Small UAV's

    SBC: Stratton Park Engineering Co., Inc.            Topic: 19a

    The 2013 report from the International Panel on Climate Change states that the spatial extent of Arctic sea ice has decreased in every season, and in every successive decade since 1979. Arctic summer sea ice retreat is unprecedented (9.4 to 13.6% per decade). Numerical simulations predict a nearly ice-free summertime Arctic after the middle of the 21st century. It is now well established that ...

  4. Development of a Profiling Microwave Radiometer for Offshore Wind Farms, Further Characterization of Marine Atmospheric Boundary Layer

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: 16a

    The life expectancy of offshore wind turbines is at least 20 years, during which they must operate optimally with respect to power production, minimization of mechanical stresses, plant wake distribution, and more, in a range of atmospheric conditions.These conditions are currently observed using meteorological masts, which provide inadequate observations, thus resulting in suboptimal turbine desi ...

  5. Low-cost, Time-resolved Chemical Characterization of Atmospheric Aerosols

    SBC: Aerosol Devices Inc.            Topic: 23b

    The composition of atmospheric particulate matter (“aerosols”) strongly influences health and environmental impacts, but there exist few time-resolved, long-term records of particle-phase chemical composition due to lack of appropriate monitoring tools. Needed is an instrument that is robust, easy-to-operate, with automated calibrations and data reduction, to provide operationally-inexpensive ...

  6. Stable, Low-Loss Joints for HTS Fusion Magnets

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: 22c

    The feasibility of fusion as a practical energy source needs to be improved significantly by removing some of the restrictions that low-temperature superconductors put on the fusion magnet systems.One method to simplify the magnet system is by using high-temperature superconductors (HTS) that allow for a higher magnet performance and much larger temperature margins.Successful application of HTS in ...

  7. High Temperature Operable, Harsh Environment Tolerant Flow Sensors for Nuclear Reactor Applications

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 32k

    A commonly noted sensor need for nuclear power systems is flow sensing in the various heat transfer mediums and to monitor medium velocities and characterize mixing and/or cooling.This is particularly needed for small modular reactors (SMR) and molten salt reactors (MSR).Such sensors must be able to tolerate high temperatures, high pressures, highly corrosive liquids, and radiation (neutron and ga ...

  8. Front End for Advanced Laser Driver for ICF Driver

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: 22a

    Aqwest LLC proposes to further develop a "Front End" laser for an advanced inertial fusion energy (IFE) laser driver, integrate it with final amplifier (FA) modules developed by Aqwest for the Department of Energy (DOE), and conduct a parametric test evaluation.The development and commercialization of IFE is impeded by the lack of efficient and economical laser driver.IFE offers to tap almost unli ...

  9. PCF Based High Reliability Arbitrary Pulse Pattern Laser Amplifier

    SBC: OPTICAL ENGINES, INC            Topic: 25d

    A very diverse set of applications from lasers for accelerator applications to defense, to industrial to scientific and biomedical applications need to achieve pulsed laser beams that have both high energy per pulse and high average power.In current lasers systems only one or the other is achievable.As with networking equipment, the search is on for a “Software Defined Laser”, where a nearly a ...

  10. Integrated Membrane Reactor for Enhancing Thermal & Chemical Reactors

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 06c

    With development of shale gas fracking, large amounts of methane and ethane have now become available at low cost. With this low cost ethane it is desirable to convert low cost ethane to high value ethylene. Oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) for low cost conversion of ethane to ethylene is a potentially attractive route. ODH is an exothermic process for converting ethane to ethylene. By contrast pro ...
