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. Rugged, Long-Life Flow Monitoring for Enhanced Geothermal Systems

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: 12a

    Access to the earth’s subsurface requires technologies that can operate at extremely high temperatures and pressures. Enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) require drilling deep and hot wells; while making better use of each well through techniques such as fracking and zonal isolation. Establishing a well requires monitoring electronics that can produce temperature, pressure and flow profiles in the ...

  2. Refinement and Optimization of a Novel Synthesis Method to Semi-Continuously Extrude Pure, Ultra-Long Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) for Application as RAD Hard, Light-weight Electrical Conductors and Signal Transmission Lines

    SBC: Nanomatronix, LLC            Topic: 27d

    Bandwidth demands are increasing for a wide variety of data communications systems and applications. Not only are these demands increasing to accommodate residential, commercial, space and defense data communication needs, but they are also increasing for the scientific community at various test centers and research institutions around the world. According to Topic 27d, “High Energy Physics (HEP ...

  3. Advanced Data Logging Electronics for High Pressure and Temperature Subsurface Environments

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: 16a

    Access to the earth’s subsurface requires technologies that can operate at extremely high temperatures and pressures. Well data loggers and boring equipment require electronics that are embedded in the instrument and can operate in-situ. To date, off-the-shelf silicon devices have been modified and made to work at elevated temperatures through enhanced packaging and thermal management. However, ...

  4. Large Area, Scalable UV Detectors Based on Silicon Carbide

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: 12a

    State-of-the-art solid-state deep-ultraviolet photon detection devices (for light wavelengths less than 300 nanometers) are based on wide bandgap semiconductors, such as vertical SiC Geiger-Mode Avalanche Photodiodes (GM-APDs). Manufacturing vertical SiC GM-APDs requires a specialized process stack that precludes monolithic integration of readout electronics; this severely limits detector size and ...

  5. Rugged, Long-Life Flow Monitoring for Enhanced Geothermal Systems

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: 28a

    Access to the earth’s subsurface requires technologies that can operate at extremely high temperatures and pressures. Only half of drilled geothermal wells lead to a productive site. Enhanced geothermal wells require technologies, proven in natural gas and oil production, that can increase output and yield of productive wells. Techniques such as fracking and zonal isolation require monitoring el ...

  6. High Power Density GaN-Based Power Converters for Grid-Tied Energy Storage

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: 10b

    Power generation and transmission limits manifest themselves in the inability to respond to dynamic peak power demand. Load leveling can effectively support dynamic demand changes by having additional standby power generating capabilities. This is achieved by either 1) having a generation and distribution infrastructure that matches the peak demand and it is operated under its full capacity spinni ...

  8. A 300C Power Module Using Wide Bandgap Devices, Advanced Materials/Processes, and High Temperature Integrated Circuits for Geothermal Applications

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: 15a

    Geothermal energy is a cost effective, reliable, environment-friendly, and sustainable energy source that has been utilized for space heating since Roman times but is now in recent years has become more attractive for its use in electricity generation. In order to harvest this energy, components must be subjected to extreme environments driven by high temperatures and pressures between the crust a ...

  9. Reliability of Commercially Available and State-of-the-Art SiC MOSFETs Under Gate Stress and Body Diode Stress

    SBC: Arkansas Power Electronics International, Inc.            Topic: 11a

    An ideal transistor from a circuit designers standpoint consists of an ultra-low on-resistance, majority carrier switching, low gate current drive, and normally-off design. These features are inherent in the silicon carbide (SiC) power MOSFET, with the small footnote that the device, although having surpassed many hurdles along the way, is still plagued by a few key issues that limit commercial ad ...
