  2. Evolving the Land Information System into a cloud computing service

    SBC: CREW Services LLC            Topic: 01c

    High-resolution and accurate terrestrial moisture, temperature and carbon conditions are increasingly demanded for precision energy, agriculture, water, and disaster management. However, the required information must be integrated and inferred from huge volumes of satellite, in-situ, and morel information that is produced by many different agencies and organizations. To address these issues, the ...

  4. Advanced Light Extraction Material for OLED Lighting

    SBC: Pixelligent Technologies, LLC            Topic: 13c

    One of the major hurdles to the commercialization of OLED lighting technology is its low light extraction efficiency when compared to its inorganic LEDs. Currently only 20 30% of the light produced by the OLED can be extracted. In order to be considered as a commercially viable option, OLED lighting efficacy has to improve dramatically. The mismatch between the refractive indices among the activ ...

  5. Monitoring and Control of Chemical Composition of InGaN Layers During MOCVD

    SBC: Accustrata, Inc.            Topic: 11d

    Metal-Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) epitaxial processes are used to deposit the GaN, InGaN, AlGaN and other wide band-gap semiconductor thin films making up the buffer, quantum well, and cap layers of the next generation high- brightness LEDs (HB-LEDs) for Solid State Lighting (SSL). Non-uniformity of the central wavelength over the wafers, run-to-run a ...

  6. Late Award- Nanocomposite Coatings for Low-Cost Motor Windings in Electric Vehicles

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: 06g

    Electric vehicles, including hybrids in the nearer term, are the principal transportation technology by which the United States can become independent of foreign oil, can become energy independent overall, and can effect control over greenhouse emissions. For this to become reality, electric vehicle costs need to come down and performance needs to improve. For electric vehicle motors, the goals ...

  7. Direct Digital Secondary Electron Signal Acquisition Probe for Scanning Electron Microscope.

    SBC: SCIENCETOMORROW LLC            Topic: 08a

    ScienceTomorrow in collaboration with Dr. David C Joy, at the University of Tennessee Research is proposed to fabricate direct digital Quantitative Secondary Electron Detectors (QSED) for scanning electron microscopes (SEMs). If successful, commercial versions of the QSED would transform the SEM/STEM into a quantitative, metrological tool with enhanced capabilities that, in turn, would broaden re ...

  8. Next Generation Semiconductor-Based Radiation Detectors Using Cadmium Magnesium Telluride


    At present, CdZnTe is considered the material of choice for efficient, room temperature gamma-radiation detection systems used for the detection and identification of radionuclides. Despite the advances in CdZnTe materials technology during the last decade, the major impediments in the progress of - ray detection technology are the low yield of device quality materials and detectors, and the limit ...

  9. Nanocrystal Additives for Advanced Lubricants

    SBC: Pixelligent Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The innovations in engine and drivetrain lubricants are mainly driven by ever more stringent regulations, which demand better fuel economy, lower carbon emission, and less pollution. Many technologies are being developed for the next generations of vehicles to achieve these goals. Even if these technologies can be adopted, there still is a significant need for a “drop-in” lubricant solution fo ...

  10. Direct Inversion Wind Power Systems with Control Isolated WBG Thyristors

    SBC: Apiq Semiconductor LLC            Topic: 10b

    The current installation rate of wind turbine generators is on track to meet DOE published goals of 20% wind source of electricity by 2030. As the most economical sites become populated, future installations will rely more heavily on low wind speed on-shore site locations and high wind speed off-shore or deep off-shore site locations. As higher power density evolves from 2.5 MW to 6-10 MW per turb ...
