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 DIAMOND MICROSTRIP DETECTOR

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    SOLID-STATE IONIZATION DETECTORS INCREASINGLY FIND USE IN MEDICAL, NUCLEAR, AND HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS AND IN MAGNETIC FUSION RESEARCH. UNFORTUNATELY, SILICON-BASED DETECTORS ARE HIGHLY SUSCEPTIBLE TO RADIATION DAMAGE, CAN OPERATE ONLYIN A NARROW TEMPERATURE REGIME, AND HAVE UNDESIRABLE SIGNAL-TO-NOISE RATIOS EVEN AT ROOM TEMPERATURE. A NEW CLASS OF RADIATION-RESISTANT, HIGH TEMPERATURE DETECTORS BAS ...

  2. SYNCHROTRON MONOCHROMATOR CRYSTAL GROWTH

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    SYNCHROTRON RADIATION FACILITIES ARE BEING USED INCREASINGLYFOR ADVANCED MATERIALS RESEARCH. THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THIS RESEARCH IS NOW COMPROMISED BY A SHORTAGE OF SUITABLE CRYSTALS TO MAKE DEVICES FOR LONG WAVELENGTH SPECTROSCOPY INTHE SOFT X-RAY REGION OF 6 TO 30 ANGSTROM. THE CRYSTAL, YTTRIUM BORIDE (YB66), HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AS A POTENTIAL MONOCHROMATOR FOR DISPERSING SYNCHROTRON RADIATION. K ...

  4. "MILD GASIFICATION IN TRANSPORT REACTORS"

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE HAS BEEN RECENT INTEREST IN THE SMALL SCALE PRODUCTIONOF LIQUIDS FROM COAL BY MILD GASIFICATION WHICH CAN BE INTEGRATED INTO THE CURRENT ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE. WHILE MOST WORK ON MILD GASIFICATION IS ADDRESSING DENSE PHASE REACTORS OR LARGE PARTICLES, SEVERAL LABORATORIES REPORT THAT FLASH PYROLYSIS USING SMALL PARTICLES IN DISPERSED-PHASE REACTORS PRODUCES A HIGHER YIELD (SOMETIMES TWO TO T ...

  5. FT-IR INSTRUMENTATION FOR SOLAR CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL PROCESSES

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. EPA ESTIMATES THAT 290 MILLION TONS OF HAZARDOUS WASTE ARE PRODUCED ANNUALLY IN THE U.S. THE MOST PROMISING METHOD FOR THE PERMANENT DISPOSAL OF ORGANIC WASTES IS HIGH-TEMPERATURE INCINERATION. WHILE SOLAR INCINERATION OFFERS SIGNIFICANT PROMISE AS A WASTE DISPOSAL TECHNOLOGY, THERE IS A STRONG NEED FOR ON-LINE AND IN-SITU DIAGNOSTICS DURING THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PROCESS AND FOR EVENTUAL ...

  6. IN-SITU FOURIER TRANSFORM-INFRARED DIAGNOSTIC TECHNIQUES FORCOAL LIQUEFACTION PROCESSES

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FOR THE CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT OF COAL LIQUEFACTION PROCESSES, ON-LINE DIAGNOSTIC TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED THAT ALLOW ONE TO "SEE" INSIDE THE VARIOUS PROCESS STAGES AND MONITOR PARAMETERS SUCH AS CATALYST ACTIVITY, UPGRADING OF LIQUIDS, DEPLETION OF SOLVENT, HETEROATOM REMOVAL, ETC. THIS PROJECT IS BASED ON TWO INNOVATIONS. THE FIRST IS THE APPLICATION OF FOURIER TRANSFORM-INFRARED (FT-IR) DIAGNOSTICS ...

  7. A PORTABLE, PULSED MHD POWER SUPPLY FOR GEOPHYSICAL MAPPING

    SBC: Coal Tech Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO APPLY TO GEOPHYSICAL MAPPING A NOVEL POWER SOURCE CONSISTING OF A MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMIC (MHD) GENERATOR DRIVEN BY A CHEMICALLY HEATED, NONEQUILIBRIUM GAS PLASMA. THIS APPLICATION REQUIRES 1 TO 3 MWE POWER PULSES OF 10- TO 30-SEC DURATION REPEATED SEVERAL TIMES PER HOUR. A COMBUSTOR DIRECTLY HEATSTHE MHD WORKING GAS TO CONDITIONS AT WHICH VERY HIGH POWER DENSITIES ...

  8. A MORE ECONOMICAL LOW LOSS NB3SN FOR PULSED FIELD APPLICATIONS, MADE BY A MODIFIED "INTERNAL TIN" PROCESS.

    SBC: Intermagnetics General Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE AIM OF THE PROPOSED WORK IS TO MODIFY THE "INTERNAL TIN"PROCESS TO PROVIDE AN ECONOMICAL, HIGH JC, NB3SN MATERIAL WITH LOW LOSSES IN PULSED FIELD APPLICATIONS. IT WILL BE MANUFACTURED IN THE UNITED STATES TO COMPETE WITH THE OVERSEAS SUPPLIERS OF BRONZE PROCESSED MATERIAL WHICH HAS A HIGHER COST AND LOWER PERFORMANCE CAPABILITY. IGC/ASI HAS BEEN DEVELOPING THE INTERNAL TIN PROCESS FOR THEMANUF ...

  9. CHANGES IN NB3SN CONDUCTORS MADE BY THE "INTERNAL TIN" METHOD, TO IMPROVE MAGNET PERFORMANCE.

    SBC: Intermagnetics General Corp            Topic: N/A

    AS RESULT OF A DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM CARRIED OUT OVER A PERIOD OF MANY YEARS, IGC/ASI HAS BEEN ABLE TO PRODUCE "INTERNAL TIN" MATERIAL IN LONG PIECE LENGTHS WITH FILAMENTSOF A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT COMPOSITIONS. HOWEVER, A LACK OF CONFIDENCE IN THE ABILITY OF NB3SN TO PERFORM RELIABLY IN A RANGE OF DIFFERENT MAGNET DESIGNS EXISTS IN THE MINDS OF MANY MAGNET BUILDERS, MAKING IT VERY DIFFICULT TO COMME ...

  10. IMPROVEMENT OF THE PROPERTIES OF TERNARY NIOBIUM-TITANIUM- TANTALUM ALLOYS

    SBC: Intermagnetics General Corp            Topic: N/A

    THIS WORK IS DESIGNED TO CARRY OUT A COMPREHENSIVE INVESTIGATION OF MULTIFILAMENTARY MATERIALS CONTAINING NIOBIUM-TITANIUM-TANTALUM (NBTITA) ALLOYS TO DETERMINE THE ADVANTAGES THAT THESE MATERIALS OFFER OVER THOSE CONTAINING NBTI BINARY ALLOYS IN 1.8 K AND 4.2 K OPERATION. THE PHASE I WORK CONCENTRATES ON THE NB-44 WT.% TA ALLOY BECAUSE OF ITS AVAILABILITY; THE ALLOY'S PROPERTIES ARE BEING COMPARE ...
