  1. Innovative concept for detection and identification of biological toxins

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: CBD14101

    We aim to create a low-cost, high-sensitivity hand-held plasmonic biosensor capable of sensing biotoxins. We will do this by using newly developed biodesign technology to create a new class of proteins which have an orders-of-magnitude increase in SPR signal-to-noise. These will be incorporated into a novel SPR device in which the transmission of light is affected by the binding of a particular t ...

  3. SpectroCCD X-ray Camera for energy dispersive spectrometers

    SBC: Sydor Instruments, LLC            Topic: 03d

    Worldwide there are a number of synchrotron beamlines dedicated to resonant soft x-ray inelastic scattering. There are also new beamlines currently being designed to take advantage of improved third generation synchrotron radiation sources and this powerful experimental technique for probing electronic structure. These beamlines utilize energy dispersive spectrometers and share a common need for a ...

  5. High Temperature Duplex Coating

    SBC: MOHAWK INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 14c

    The goal of this SBIR research is to demonstrate the feasibility of using Korolon TBC in hot gas path components of gas turbines through mechanical and thermal characterization of the coating and feasibility study of a novel micromachining technology for drilling the cooling holes. Korolon is a novel coating that has a similar thermal conductivity as the currently used zirconia and is more erosio ...

  6. Amplifiers to Replace 1497 MHz Klystrons at Thomas Jefferson Laboratories

    SBC: COMMUNICATION POWER CORPORATION            Topic: 38b

    At present, there is a significant need for high power (5-20kW) solid state RF amplifiers (HPSSA), operating at frequencies between 50MHz to 1500MHz. Higher performance, higher efficiency, more reliable and cost effective alternatives to IOTs and klystrons is best achieved with solid state amplifiers (SSAs); where advantages of the modular HPSSA architecture over traditional IOTs and klystrons wil ...

  7. An additive manufacturing technology for the fabrication and characterization of nuclear reactor fuel

    SBC: FREE FORM FIBERS L.L.C.            Topic: 19b

    The Department of Energy (DOE) has been tasked by the US administration to give priority to developing enhanced fuels and cladding for Light Water Reactors to improve safety in the event of accidents in the reactor or spent fuel pools. Within this context, the DOE is calling for advanced technologies for the fabrication and characterization of nuclear fuel. Specifically, the DOE is inviting (1) ne ...

  8. Prevention, Repair and Mitigation of CO2 Storage Leaks Using SPI Gels

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: 13a

    It is proposed that SPI gels be used to provide a multi-layered protective barrier for active and plugged carbon sequestration injection wells to ensure long term CO2 storage. SPI gels are patent pending, liquid silicate based gel systems that are near water viscosity until they set-up into strong, flexible gels. The gelation initiation trigger can be from an internal chemical, for a time/ temper ...

  9. Web-Based Computational Model Builder for Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 19d

    According to the World Nuclear Association, the U.S. is the largest producer of nuclear power worldwide. In fact, the U.S. provides over 30 percent of the worlds nuclear generation of electricity. Although few new reactors have been built in the past 30 years, the association anticipates that four to six reactors may be built by 2020. The first of the reactors will be built in response to 16 lice ...

  10. OLED lighting panel with directional output and high efficiency

    SBC: OLEDWorks LLC            Topic: 03a

    Organic light emitting diode (OLED) is an efficient lighting technology that provides a full spectrum lambertian light from a very thin panel. This low glare lambertian property is a desired feature when creating natural light experiences. However, there are applications where the lighting designer wants to capture the look and feel of the thin panels and pleasing light, but with added requirement ...
