  1. AM of Layered Structures

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: 13a

    Materials for modern nuclear reactors should meet multiple requirements- They have to be strong enough to reliably provide temperature oxidation, and be compatible with other nuclear reactor materials- Only the steels and alloys listed in Section III Division 5 of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code are permitted for usage in nuclear reactors, but they may not be resistive enough against chem ...

  4. RADIATION HARD HIGH SPEED CAMERA SYSTEM FOR ACCELERATOR BEAM DIAGNOSTICS

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: 24h

    Alphacore intends to submit a proposal for a Sequential Phase IIA grant in January 2018. Thus far in Phase II Alphacore has developed an initial prototype of a radiation-hardened 10,000-pixel camera with custom- designed 10,000-frames-per-second (10kpfs) capable image sensor IC, camera control PCB with FPGA and interface to a PC, and an enclosure allowing different lens options. Most of Alphacore' ...

  5. Multi-Channel Readout IC for Nuclear Physics Experiments

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: 24b

    Readout integrated circuits (ROICs) for Nuclear Physics science experiments are very expensive and generally have performance flaws that make it difficult to collect all the data that researchers seek from the detectors that they use in their facilities. General statement of how this problem or situation is being addressed. Alphacore is developing multi-channel ROICs that have high performance, ad ...

  6. Large Parts Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: 18b

    Modern fossil fuel energy production requires large scale machines with big size componentry. Such processes require using high temperatures and thus, chemically stable materials resistant against creep, wear, and high temperature oxidation. Manufacturing large size parts from high temperature alloys runs in many challenges related to chemical homogeneity/ phase composition stability and microstru ...

  7. High Value Carbon Products from Domestic Coal

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: 18c

    Outside of fuel and heat value of domestic coal there are very limited applications to manufacture carbon products including the byproduct coal tar pitch (CTP) which is a high value feedstock to produce high value carbon products whose value exceeds the fuel and heat values of the coal. There is no current domestic producer of CTP in spite of its value to produce battery anodes, graphite fibers, c ...

  8. Gamma-Heated In-Core Thermoacoustic Sensor

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: 30a

    We will develop an acoustically-telemetered, frequency-multiplexed, gamma-heated thermoacoustic sensors that can simultaneously monitor local gamma flux and coolant temperature at multiple locations in the core of an operating commercial nuclear reactor. These sensors will require no external power source and will telemeter temperature encoded as the frequency of the sound radiated by the sensor a ...

  9. High-Speed Radiation-Hard Optical Transceivers for Particle Detectors

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: 27d

    While commercial, advanced optical transceivers can transmit data rates beyond 100Gb/s, they will not function in the high radiation environment present at the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC). These data transmission technologies are also too massive to be placed inside the HL-LHC detectors, where added mass degrades the measurements being made. The top custom-designed radiation-har ...

  10. Development of a Wind Turbine Blade Surface Coating to Reduce Damage due to Lightning

    SBC: AQUANIS, INC.            Topic: 14b

    Lightning strikes and near-strikes on wind turbine blades cost wind farm operators millions of dollars every year, representing one of their largest O&M risks and expenses, as well as a primary cause of turbine downtime (resulting in lost power production). These negative effects increase the levelized cost of wind energy. With the incidence of lightning strikes increasing as turbines get larger, ...
