  1. Programmable, Reconfigurable Silicon Photodiode Array Module

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 34c

    Many planned nextgeneration experiments in high energy physics, astroparticle physics, and nuclear physics need a plethora of photon detectors with singlephoton sensitivity, large dynamic range, and accessibility throughout experiment lifetime. These requirements constrain the sensor: low sensitivity against temperature and bias fluctuations; very compact; very robust; cheap; insensitive to magn ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. TAU Commander: An Intuitive Interface for the TAU Performance Analysis System

    SBC: ParaTools INC            Topic: 02b

    The Department of Energy and other federal agencies have made significant investments in software performance engineering tools, which can be complex and difficult to use. Novice users first encountering a tools complexity and vast array of features are intimidated and easily frustrated. There is also a lack of advanced problem identification capabilities so users rely heavily on their o ...

  4. Digital Silicon Photomultiplier Readout Circuit

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 42b

    The need for ever more sensitive, compact, rugged, and inexpensive optical sensors is particularly acute in the fields of homeland security, biological sciences, nuclear medicine, and nuclear and highenergy physics. The ability to detect the spatial location and time of arrival of single photons with increased accuracy represents the ultimate goal in optical detection for many of these application ...

  5. Low SWAP LIDAR Instrument for Arctic Ice Sheet Mass Balance Monitoring

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 17a

    The Arctic sea ice cover plays a major role in governing the exchange of energy between the ocean and atmosphere in the Polar Regions. As such, observations of ice extent and thickness, including temporal growth and melt cycles, improves our understanding of the ongoing global climate changes, and enhances our ability to predict future changes. Despite continual improvements in global climate mode ...

  6. Fuels from Biomass Using Unique Micro/Nano Systems

    SBC: Dune Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 26b

    The U.S has established a goal to replace 30% of our current petroleum consumption with renewable fuels by 2030. Current technology cannot meet this goal due to (1) limitations in potential feedstock supplies (corn-based ethanol), (2) prohibitive costs, and (3) immature or non-existent technologies. Therefore, new cost-effective technologies that can convert cellulosic biomass are required. This p ...

  7. Xylose Utilization During Simultaneous Saccharification and Fermentation Enabled by a Parallel Microreactor with Immobilized Enzyme

    SBC: Trillium Fiber Fuels, Inc.            Topic: 10b

    One prominent challenge for the biochemical production of cellulosic ethanol is the utilization of xylose, which can increase ethanol yield 20-40% for typical feedstocks. Efforts toward genetic engineering of conventional yeast to utilize xylose have suffered from metabolic redox imbalance. This project will develop a technology for utilizing an industrial enzyme, glucose isomerase (GI), for the c ...

  8. High Resolution, 15-micron thin, Pixellated, Back-illuminated SOI CMOS Vertex Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 34

    Planned high energy physics (HEP) experiments require improvements in detector technology characterized by improved parameters for granularity, readout speed, radiation hardness and sensor thickness. Of the available detector technologies, Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) pixilated imagers offer several advantages, but CMOS detectors, due to readout and fixed pattern noise, have not ...

  9. Large Area, High Dynamic Range, Sold State Photomultiplier Array for Cherenkov Calorimetry

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 34

    Existing solid state detectors, such as charge coupled device (CCD) and complimentary metal oxide silicon (CMOS) imagers do not have adequate ultraviolet (UV) sensitivity for Cherenkov radiation detection. Therefore, a new type of UV-optimized, high-gain, low-noise, solid state avalanche photodiode (APD) is needed for low-level light detection of Cherenkov radiation. In recent years, silicon, CMO ...

  10. NOVEL HIGH-FLUX ANTIFOULING MEMBRANE COATINGS

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MEMBRANE FOULING, THE LONG-TERM IRREVERSIBLE DECLINE IN PERMEATE FLUX, GREATLY LIMITS THE APPLICATION OF ENERGY-EFFICIENT MEMBRANES TO INDUSTRIAL PROCESSING NEEDS. THE ECONOMICS OF MANY CURRENT MEMBRANE PROCESSES WOULD BE IMPROVED AND THE INTRODUCTION OF NEW MEMBRANE APPLICATIONS WOULD BE ACCELERATED IF EXISTING MEMBRANES COULD BE MODIFIEDTO EXHIBIT (1) HIGHER PERMEATE FLUXES WITHOUT ATTENDANT LOS ...
