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. Fuels from Biomass Using Unique Micro/Nano Systems

    SBC: Dune Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 26b

    The U.S has established a goal to replace 30% of our current petroleum consumption with renewable fuels by 2030. Current technology cannot meet this goal due to (1) limitations in potential feedstock supplies (corn-based ethanol), (2) prohibitive costs, and (3) immature or non-existent technologies. Therefore, new cost-effective technologies that can convert cellulosic biomass are required. This p ...

  2. Xylose Utilization During Simultaneous Saccharification and Fermentation Enabled by a Parallel Microreactor with Immobilized Enzyme

    SBC: Trillium Fiber Fuels, Inc.            Topic: 10b

    One prominent challenge for the biochemical production of cellulosic ethanol is the utilization of xylose, which can increase ethanol yield 20-40% for typical feedstocks. Efforts toward genetic engineering of conventional yeast to utilize xylose have suffered from metabolic redox imbalance. This project will develop a technology for utilizing an industrial enzyme, glucose isomerase (GI), for the c ...

  3. High Resolution, 15-micron thin, Pixellated, Back-illuminated SOI CMOS Vertex Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 34

    Planned high energy physics (HEP) experiments require improvements in detector technology characterized by improved parameters for granularity, readout speed, radiation hardness and sensor thickness. Of the available detector technologies, Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) pixilated imagers offer several advantages, but CMOS detectors, due to readout and fixed pattern noise, have not ...

  4. Large Area, High Dynamic Range, Sold State Photomultiplier Array for Cherenkov Calorimetry

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 34

    Existing solid state detectors, such as charge coupled device (CCD) and complimentary metal oxide silicon (CMOS) imagers do not have adequate ultraviolet (UV) sensitivity for Cherenkov radiation detection. Therefore, a new type of UV-optimized, high-gain, low-noise, solid state avalanche photodiode (APD) is needed for low-level light detection of Cherenkov radiation. In recent years, silicon, CMO ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. High Resolution, 15-micron thin, Pixellated, Back-illuminated SOI CMOS Vertex Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 34

    The physics of future Linear Colliders demand the best possible vertex detector performance in terms of high-granularity, high-precision, high-efficiency, and triggerless operation. Monolithic silicon-on-insulator (SOI) complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) pixilated detectors offer a nearly ideal solution to these requirements. SOI circuitry is isolated from the charge generation regio ...

  7. High Count Rate, Pixelated APDs for Direct X-Ray Detection

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 25

    Synchrotron radiation (SR) has become a widespread tool across a broad spectrum of forefront science. However, with advances in the brightness of synchrotron radiation sources, a wide gap has developed between the ability of these sources to deliver high photon fluxes and the ability of detectors to measure the resulting photon, electron, or ion signals. In a number of cases, expensive beamlines ...

  9. Time-Resolved, X-Ray Photon Detector Array

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 14

    As synchrotron radiation has become a ubiquitous tool across a broad area of forefront science, the DOE supports collaborative research centers for synchrotron radiation science. With advances in the brightness of synchrotron radiation sources, a wide gap has developed between the ability of these sources to deliver high photon fluxes and the ability of detectors to measure the resulting photon, ...

  10. Large Area, High Dynamic Range, Sold State Photomultiplier Array for Cherenkov Calorimetry

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 34

    The Avalanche Microchannel Photo Diode (AMPD) can be used in detectors for high energy physics research. The AMPD is a multipixel array of micro pixels, joined together on a common silicon substrate and working on a common load. The pixels are decoupled in order to minimize interpixel crosstalk and work as independent high gain photon microcounters. These devices are capable of good pixel-to-pi ...
