The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. A Magneto-Hydrodynamic System for Generating High-Pressure Impluses in Spallation Targets

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 02c

    The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) produces neutrons that allow researchers to study key material properties. Neutrons are produced by the interaction of a very short (1 µsec), highly intense (1 MW at 60 Hz) pulse of protons with a flowing bath of mercury called the target. The process deposits a large amount of thermal energy in the mercury. Because mer ...

  2. Ex-situ Polarized 3He Neutron Spin Filter and Analyzer System

    SBC: XEMED, LLC            Topic: 01a

    In the preparation of neutron beams, used at DOE facilities for materials research, polarized 3He offers over three orders of magnitude difference between the ortho and para spin states in its absorption cross section for epithermal neutrons. Cells of polarized 3He are favored in many experiments for their compact size, effectiveness over a broad range of neutron energies, and ability to convenie ...

  3. Ex-Situ Polarized 3He Electron Beam Target

    SBC: XEMED, LLC            Topic: 37d

    Nuclear physics experiments conducted at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility utilize targets consisting of nuclear polarized 3He. These experiments utilize the high energy electron beam for months at a time to answer fundamental questions of how matter is composed of quarks. Over the next decade, the energy capability of the beam is scheduled to be upgraded from 6 GeV to 12 GeV. ...

  4. Enhancing Homologous Recombination in Plants Through the Use of Custom Endonucleases

    SBC: Advanced Genome Technologies, Llc            Topic: 48

    Homologous recombination (HR) permits the precise insertion, deletion, or substitution of genetic material in the genome of an organism. HR offers numerous opportunities for modifying plant genomes to enhance our understanding of plant gene function and regulation, especially with respect to enhancing the production of biofuels. Although HR normally occurs at very low frequencies, approximately ...
