  1. MULTIPHOTON PROCESSES PROMOTED BY CONCENTRATED SOLAR ENERGY

    SBC: M.L. ENERGIA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ADVANCED SOLAR COLLECTOR TECHNOLOGY CAN PROVIDE LIGHT INTENSITIES SEVERAL THOUSAND TIMES THAT OF INCOMING SUNLIGHT. ACHIEVEMENT OF SUCH INTENSITIES SUGGESTS A NOVEL OPPORTUNITY: PROMOTION OF MULTIPHOTON CHEMICAL PROCESSES BY SOLAR SOURCES. AT VERY HIGH LIGHT INTENSITIES, MORE THANONE QUANTUM OF RADIATION CAN BE ABSORBED BY A SINGLE MOLECULE. THE RESULTANT MULTIPHOTON ABSORPTION CAN LEAD TO NEW PHO ...

  2. PHOTOCHEMICAL UPGRADING OF NATURAL GAS

    SBC: M.L. ENERGIA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AVAILABLE IN ABUNDANCE IN THE UNITED STATES AND THROUGHTOUT THE WORLD, NATURAL GAS REPRESENTS AN ENORMOUS ENERGY RESERVE. HOWEVER, DIRECT USE OF NATURAL GAS AS FUEL IS CONSTRAINED BY NUMEROUS DIFICULTITES: LOW COMBUSTION EFFICIENCY, UNRELIABLE IGNITION (MISFIRING), AND TRANSPORTATION. A DESIRABLE ALTERNATIVE TO DIRECT USE OF NATURAL GAS IS TO UPGRADE IT TO HIGHER VALUE, TRANSPORTABLE HYDROCARBONS ...

  3. TECHNIQUES FOR THE PULSED ENERGY DEPOSITION OF PARTICLE-FREE, ULTRA-SMOOTH HIGH CRITICAL TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS

    SBC: Neocera , LLC            Topic: N/A

    APPLICATIONS OF THE NEW HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS IN ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS REQUIRE THE DEVELOPMENT OF WELL-CONTROLLED TECHNIQUES FOR FABRICATING THIN FILMS OF THEMATERIALS. CONSIDERABLE SUCCESS HAS BEEN OBTAINED WITH PULSED EXCIMER LASER DEPOSITION. THIS METHOD HAS DEMONSTRATED EXCELLENT CONTROL OVER CHEMICAL COMPOSITION AND PHASE. HOWEVER, THE FILMS OFTEN CONTAIN UNWANTED PARTICULATE MATER ...

  4. ENHANCEMENT OF OIL AND GAS RECOVERY USING NOVEL BIOPOLYMERS

    SBC: Princeton Polymers Lab Inc            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED FOR NOVEL WATER-SOLUBLE BIOPOLYMERS THAT TOLERATE LONG-TERM EXPOSURE TO TEMPERATURES EXCEEDING 90 DEGREES CENTIGRADE FOR USE IN ENHANCED OIL RECOVERY. THESE CONDITIONS ARE ENCOUNTERED IN DEEP WELLS. THE BIOPOLYMERS EXHIBIT A COMBINATION OF OTHER USEFUL PROPERTIES, I.E., VISCOSITY RETENTION AT HIGH TEMPERATURES, GOOD SOLUBILITY IN HARD BRINES, LOW ABSORPTIVITY IN ROCK FORMATIONS, AN ...

  5. AN EFFICIENT LAGRANGIAN METHOD FOR THE COMPUTATION OF THREE-DIMENSIONAL REACTIVE FLOWS ON CONCURRENT COMPUTERS

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF THE PHASE I AND PHASE II EFFORTS OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A FAST O(NLOGN) OR O(N) COMPUTATIONAL METHOD FOR THE TREATMENT OF A THREE-DIMENSIONAL, UNSTEADY, REACTIVE FLOW ON A CONCURRENT COMPUTER. IN THE PHASE I FEASIBILITY STUDY, A ROBUST O(N(4/3)) THREE-DIMENSIONAL VORTEX PARTICLE METHOD IS BEING DEVELOPED. THIS METHOD, BASED ON THE PROPER TREATMENT OF THE NEAR- AND FAR-F ...

  6. SELECTIVE OXIDATION OF METHANE TO METHANOL

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A LARGE FRACTION OF THE WORLD'S TOTAL SUPPLY OF NATURAL GAS IS LOCATED IN REGIONS SO INACCESSIBLE THAT IT IS NOT ECONOMIC TO PIPELINE OR LIQUEFY THE GAS AND SHIP IT TO MARKET. THIS STATIC NATURAL GAS PROBLEM IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT TO THE UNITED STATES-BOTH BECAUSE THE UNITED STATES HAS IMPORTANT STATIC GAS RESERVES IN ALASKA AND ELSEWHERE, AND BECAUSE THIS COUNTRY IS AN ENERGY-IMPORTING NATION. ...

  7. SELECTIVE REDUCTION OF NITROGEN OXIDES BY GAS PHASE CHEMISTRY

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    IN THE "THERMAL DENOX" PROCESS, AMMONIA IS INJECTED INTO HOT FLUE GAS INSIDE A BOILER OR FURNACE, AND A GAS PHASE HOMOGENEOUS REACTION OCCURS, WHICH REDUCES THE NITROGEN OXIDES (NOX) TO MOLECULAR NITROGEN AND WATER. THE PROCESS IS THUS EXTREMELY SIMPLE, HIGHLY RELIABLE, AND FAR LESS EXPENSIVE THAN SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTION. IN LABORATORY EXPERIMENTS, THERMAL DENOX IS CAPABLE OF >90% NOX REDUCT ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF A SELECTIVE SENSOR FOR ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS IN GROUNDWATER USING A MOLECULAR IMPRINTING TECHNIQUE

    SBC: INRAD            Topic: N/A

    THE WIDESPREAD PRESENCE OF CHLORINATED AND NONCHLORINATED ORGANICS IN GROUNDWATER AT MANY GOVERNMENT INSTALLATIONS POSES A SERIOUS ENVIRONMENTAL AND HEALTH PROBLEM, WITH PARTICULAR ATTENTION BEING DRAWN TO TRICHLORETHYLENE (TCE) AS A COMMON CARCINOGENIC CONTAMINANT. MONITORING OF THE TCE CONTAMINANT LEVEL IN GROUNDWATER TYPICALLY REQUIRES THE COLLECTION OF SAMPLES AT THE SITE, TRANSPORTATION OF TH ...

  9. A GENERIC CHEMICAL PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY FOR THE PRODUCTION OF NANOSTRUCTURED COMPOSITE MATERIALS

    SBC: Nanodyne Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SPRAY CONVERSION PROCESSING (SCP) IS A NEW CHEMICAL PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY CAPABLE OF PRODUCING BULK QUANTITIES OF NANOSTRUCTURED COMPOSITE POWDERS, STARTING FROM WATER SOLUBLE PRECURSORS. THE TECHNOLOGY HAS CONSIDERABLE VERSATILITY, BUT IS UNABLE TO DEAL WITH REACTIVE ELEMENTS SUCH AS ALUMINUM (A1), SILICON (SI), TITANIUM (TI), VANADIUM (V), NIOBIUM (NB), AND TANTALUM (TA), WHICH FORM THERMODYNAMI ...
