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. Development of Corrosion Resistant Prestressed Concrete Strands Utilizing Liquie Plasma Technology

    SBC: CAP Technologies LLC            Topic: 141FH6

    This proposal is to prove the feasibility of a new and novel zinc-based alloyed coating on both the manufactured Grade 270 0.5 and 0.6 low-relaxation strands and for the individual wires used to make the 7-wire strand for prestressed concrete used in bridge construction. The application of the coating will use CAP Technologies LLC [CAP] proprietary and patented foam plasma technology also kn ...

  2. The eSparkBeat: A Pulse on the Modern Classroom

    SBC: ESPARK LEARNING            Topic: N/A

    eSpark is a website that provides teachers curated playlists of tablet-based apps, videos, and assessments tailored to students’ individualized learning needs. In this project, the research team is developing a prototype of eSparkBeat, a dynamic dashboard to provide teachers useful content and resources tailored to particular classroom foci to improve instruction. The intended users of eSpark wi ...

  3. High-Power Vertical-Junction Field-Effect Transistors Fabricated on Low-Dislocation-Density GaN by Epitaxial Lift-Off [Phase IIS]

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: 1

    In this program, we will develop a breakthrough technology that will enable wafer-scale epitaxial lift-off (ELO) of GaN power device heterostructures from low-dislocation-density bulk GaN substrates. This technology will be used to provide a low-cost vertical junction field effect transistors (VJFETs) with high breakdown voltage (greater than 1,200 V) and high current capability (greater than 100 ...

  4. Diamond membrane-based X-ray optics: Fresnel zone plates, beam stops, and grids

    SBC: Advanced Diamond TechNologies, Inc.            Topic: 04a

    The continuous push towards higher photon energies and higher imaging resolution has brought current state- of-theart X-ray focusing zone plates to a limit of 20 nm resolution at & lt;10 keV photon energies. Zone plates for focusing with same or better resolution at energies up to 25 keV are necessary for imaging and elemental analyses of multi-element samples, such as nano-composites, biologi ...

  5. Real-time, continuous and quantitative detection of bioavailable radionuclides and heavy metals in contaminated water at DOE sites

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 20b

    Quantitative, real-time detection of hazardous metal ions on-site is an important goal and remains a significant challenge while monitoring sources such as potable, ground, surface and industrial waters. Quantitative analysis of trace elements is predominantly done by sending the samples to a laboratory for testing by sophisticated analytical techniques, such as Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectrom ...

  6. Design and fabrication of a 30T superconducting soleNoid using hyperbaric processed Bi2212 round wire

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 33b

    High field magnets are needed for frontier accelerator facilities and have many applications beyond high-energy physics. Of particular interest are 30-40T class (LTS/HTS hybrid) solenoids required for the final beam cooling stages of a muon collider facility. The successful design of such magnets using Bi2212 conductor depends critically on the conductor processing, stress management in the coil, ...

  7. Radiation-hard Miniature Parallel Optical Links for Next Generation High-Energy Physics Experiments

    SBC: VEGA WAVE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 35d

    Future particle physics experiments at the high-energy frontier, such as LHC, HL-LHC, ILC, CLIC or Multi-TeV Muon Collider, will all require silicon detectors capable of reconstructing charged particle trajectories with high accuracy in the presence of significant high occupancy. These experiments will impose stringent demands on the data links to transfer the data from the silicon detector to t ...

  8. Singlet-oxygen Plasma Afterglow Reaction Chamber for Disinfection and Sterilization

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: 18a

    The capability of discharge-produced reactive oxygen species, in particular O2(a1), to effectively inactivate biological species has been empirically well-established. Disinfection and sterilization processes for instruments, surfaces, and wounds are essential in disease prevention to ensure destruction of microorganisms that can contaminate materials. Such microorganisms include spore-forming and ...

  9. Developing Affordable Creep-resistant Aluminum Alloys for Car Brake Rotors

    SBC: NANOAL LLC            Topic: 07b

    Currently, cast-iron is nearly exclusively used for car brake rotors. Replacing cast-iron by a high- temperature, creep-resistant aluminum alloy could translate into about 80 lbs (36 kg) in weight reduction for a typical car, thus improving its gasoline mileage and reducing its greenhouse gas emissions. Current commercial, castable, age-hardening aluminum alloys cannot withstand temperatures above ...

  10. Lithium Ion Battery Electrode Binders with Enhanced Ion Transport and Thermal Properties

    SBC: Navitas Systems, Llc            Topic: 07a

    Polymer binders play a key role in the cycle life and abuse tolerance of lithium ion batteries. Binder formulations are highly constrained by electrochemical stability and compatibility with established electrode manufacturing infrastructure and hygiene. This SBIR project develops a new aqueous binder system based on a polymer that supports high lithium ion transport rate and is highly compatible ...
