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. High Power IR/UV Laser for Accelerator Systems

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: 03d

    Electron accelerators allow researchers to advance energy and luminosity frontiers and expand our knowledge of nuclear physics and basic materials science. To achieve the best performance, specialized lasers are used to produce electrons for these accelerators. The lasers not only must be precise and reliable but also much more powerful than those that are currently available. This project will de ...

  2. Instrumentation for Quantifiable Experimental Mechanics at the Deep Nanoscale

    SBC: Hummingbird Precision Machine Co.            Topic: 01b

    With the development of new nanostructured materials, there is an increasing need to quantify their basic properties. The small size scales of the materials complicate the adaptation of existing experimental approaches and require new instruments to perform basic measurements. This project will incorporate a fully-functional scanned-probe system into a sample holder for transmission electron micro ...

  3. A Continuous Flow Liquid Cell for the TEM and STEM Microscopes

    SBC: Hummingbird Precision Machine Co.            Topic: 01b

    The addition of continuous fluid flow through a set of electron transparent windows in a transmission electron microscope (TEM) or scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) will provide the ability to image reactions that occur at the nanoscale. In particular, liquid STEM presents a unique in situ electron microscopy tool to investigate energy conversion at the interface between solid and l ...

  4. Power Generation from an Integrated Biofuel Reformer and Solid Oxide Fuel Cell

    SBC: INNOVATEK, INC.            Topic: 22c

    Alternative energy sources must be sought to meet the energy demands of our growing economy and to improve energy security while reducing environmental impacts. The conversion of bio-oil from non-food-based biomass to hydrogen for fuel cells would allow significant increases in the use of renewable feedstocks for energy production. This project will develop a non-food biomass-based power plant, in ...

  5. High Performance Lossy Dielectric HOM Absorbers for SRF Cavities

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 27

    Recently developed high thermal conductivity aluminum nitride (AlN) based lossy dielectrics can replace the toxic beryllia (BeO) based lossy dielectrics as high order mode (HOM) absorbers in superconductor radio frequency (SRF) cavities in linear accelerators and in microwave tubes. AlN-based lossy dielectrics must be joined metallic copper members in these applications. However, lack of suitable ...

  6. High Thermal Conductivity Aluminum Nitride-Based HOM Absorbers

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 36a

    A family of aluminum-nitride/silicon-carbide (AlN/SiC) composite lossy dielectrics are being developed to replace the toxic beryllia/silicon-carbide (BeO/SiC) composite lossy dielectrics as high order mode (HOM) absorbers in superconductor radio frequency (SRF) cavities in linear accelerators and in microwave tubes. Even though the dielectric properties of AlN/SiC composites match those of BeO/SiC ...

  7. Supersonic Gas Jet Nozzle for Laser Wakefield Acceleration

    SBC: S T I Optronics Inc            Topic: 49a

    Supersonic gas jet nozzles, used to generate the plasma part of a laser wakefield acceleration (LWFA) system, would enable the development of high-gradient advanced electron accelerators. However, the nozzle requires sharp boundaries between the jet stream and the surrounding vacuum. Such sharp boundaries are possible if the gas flows supersonically. The throat dimensions of the supersonic gas jet ...

  8. Hollow Plasma Channels for Positron Plasma Wakefield Acceleration

    SBC: S T I Optronics Inc            Topic: 49a

    Plasma wakefield acceleration (PWFA) is a promising new acceleration technique that can accelerate charged particles to very high energies using plasma waves (wakefields) generated by a relativistic electron bunch. By using a concept called a plasma afterburner, PWFA has the potential of doubling the energy of the electrons from a linear accelerator. However, for a collider, the plasma afterburner ...

  9. Jet-Assisted Turbodrill

    SBC: Tempress Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 21a

    Although geothermal energy represents a renewable resource for electric power generation, the development of this resource has been hampered by the high cost of drilling wells. The cost of drilling geothermal wells is high largely because of slow drilling rates in the hard rock associated with this resource. Research has shown that high-pressure, jet-assisted drill bits operating at very high rota ...

  10. Low-Cost Small Diameter NMR Technologies for In-Situ Subsurface Characterization and Monitoring

    SBC: Vista Clara Inc.            Topic: 49

    This project will address the problem of characterizing and monitoring subsurface hydro-geological and groundwater transport processes within 200m of the earth¿s surface, including both the saturated and unsaturated (Vadose) zones. The project will develop low-cost, small-diameter NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) instrumentation and software for direct subsurface measurement of groundwater and ...
