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. Commercializing the Effective K-3 Assessment to Instruction (A2i) Intervention to Reduce Cost and to Scale Access to the Benefit of More Students

    SBC: LEARNING OVATIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: Students who fail to achieve proficient levels of literacy are at increased risk for grade retention, referral to special education, and dropping out of high school. The kindergarten through 3rd grade years are particularly important for students to gain a strong foundation in reading as those who continue to struggle with reading are significantly less likely to achieve reading proficien ...

  3. Surface metrology for x-ray mirrors using deflectometry

    SBC: ARIZONA OPTICAL SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 04c

    The performance and productivity of DOE synchrotron systems is hindered due to focusing limitations from imperfections in the mirror surfaces. The ability to manufacture higher quality mirrors is directly limited by the accuracy and efficiency of the systems used to measure them. Currently available measurement methods do not provide the manufacturing feedback or quality control to allow efficien ...

  4. High-Performance Proton Exchange Membranes for Electrolysis Cells

    SBC: AMSEN TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 13a

    Improvements in performance of the components are needed for polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolyzers, which is one of the key technologies for DOEs hydrogen production plan. In particular, high- performance ion-exchange membranes are needed that can withstand significantly higher mechanical loads due to high-pressure operation, while having significantly reduce hydrogen permeability and i ...

  5. Novel manned/unmanned aircraft conversion for Arctic research

    SBC: L3 Latitude, LLC            Topic: 17g

    There is a clear requirement for gathering greater quantity and quality of atmospheric data in the Arctic regions. The harsh nature of the environment combined with remote location creates the need for technological solutions. Current efforts have successfully used small unmanned aerial systems (UAS); however, a large cost in both time and money is incurred when miniaturizing sensors to fit with ...

  6. 100 W Mode-locked Green Laser for GaAs Photoemission Guns

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: 38e

    To address the DOE need for a high-power laser source used for synchronous photoinjection of GaAs photoemission guns, AdValue Photonics proposes to develop a radio-frequency (RF) synchronized 100W green fiber laser source with a repetition rate near 1GHz. Although GHz-rate mode-locked solid-state/fiber lasers in the near infrared have been previously demonstrated, which could be used as ...

  7. Low-Cost, High Efficiency Integration of Solid-State Lighting and Building Controls Using a Packet Energy Transfer (PET) Power Distribution System

    SBC: VoltServer            Topic: 03a

    Solid state lighting has not yet taken off in commercial buildings due to its high relative installed cost. On a normalized basis, solid state lighting replacement lamps are on the order of two times more expensive than equivalent compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and five times more expensive than an equivalent downlight fixture. An additional barrier relates to the performance and cost of the dr ...

  8. Filament-Based Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy for the Standoff Detection of Radiological Materials

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: 49a

    An improved method is needed for the detection of radiological materials for nuclear nonproliferation and safety. Current techniques using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), while robust, are limited in range due to pulse energy and diffraction. Furthermore, atmospheric broadening of the spectral lines reduces the sensitivity of the detection scheme, such as optical emission spectroscopy ...

  9. HV Storage Capacitors for High Current Pulse Power Applications

    SBC: Sigma Technologies International Inc            Topic: 34f

    Solid-state power electronic circuits that incorporate switching devices such as IGBTs, IGCTs and MOSFETs can now operate at voltages as high as 3KV to 6.0+KV with peak currents of 0.5-6.0+KA. Modulators built with various topologies require high voltage, energy storage capacitors, that can operate at the same voltage and current as the switching devices. Presently such capacitors a ...

  10. High Voltage Capacitors for DC-Link Applications

    SBC: Sigma Technologies International Inc            Topic: 01b

    A high energy density capacitor with superior life and reliability will be developed that is a key component of power semiconductor inverter circuits, used in automotive hybrid and electric vehicles, rail transit, wind power generators, photovoltaics, and transportable energy storage systems for grid applications.
