  1. High-Speed ADC for Nuclear Physics Experiments

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: 29b

    Several nuclear physics experiments require accurate timing measurements and transient digitization at high sampling rates, exceeding 1 gigasamples per second (GSPS). To date, only few transient digitizer chips have been developed for this purpose and they are based on storing the analog samples onto long buffers from which they are digitized with low-rate analog-to-digital converters (ADC). These ...

  2. Low cost, High speed Multi-probe Monitoring System for Subsurface Gases

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 24b

    Determination of soil gas concentrations and isotopologue ratios are a critical tool in plant, microbial and ecosystem ecology, hydrology, biogeochemistry studies, and interrogation of environmental remediation. In addition, the most abundant elements utilized and exchanged by plants, microbes and ecosystems are carbon (C), hydrogen (H), oxygen (O) and nitrogen (N), all of which respond to redox c ...

  4. Conversion of Coal Wastes and Municipal Solids Mixtures by Pyrolytic Torrefaction and Entrained Flow Gasification

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 19b

    For the foreseeable future, the Nation’s energy demand will continue to come largely from indigenous fossil energy resources and hydrocarbon fuels. Specifically waste coal plus other opportunity fuels need to be utilized as a feedstock to eliminate a waste stream and optimized to maximize energy yield and cleanly minimize pollutant emissions. Modular equipment is needed for installation in coal ...

  5. CO2 to Chemicals: A Hybrid Process for Bioproduct Synthesis From CO2

    SBC: Dioxide Materials DBA Dioxide Recycle            Topic: 16b

    The chemical industry is seeking new domestic feedstocks that are independent of imported oil. Waste CO2 is an abundant and low-cost domestic source of carbon for making chemicals but there is a need for new technologies to cost-effectively capture and convert CO2 into useful materials. The objective of this project will be to develop an economically viable process that converts waste CO2 from sou ...

  6. Integrated Sorbent-based Lithium, Power, and Water Recovery from Geothermal Brines

    SBC: STRATOFIRE LC            Topic: 17a

    Geothermal brines used in power generation can be a potential source of critical elements, such as lithium. However, current technological approaches cannot achieve high selectivity of target elements available in trace concentrations from a complex geothermal brine matrix with high concentration of non-desirable mineral content. StratoFire and Southern Research propose to develop and optimize an ...

  7. Ultrafast Optics with Large Damage Threshold

    SBC: Lenzner Research LLC            Topic: 28e

    The goal is to develop design software for optical coatings that includes accurate simulations of the physics behind laser-induced damage of these coatings. Special emphasis is on coatings for femtosecond-class lasers exhibiting high peak power as well as high average power. The proposed project is a combination of modeling, design, fabrication and test of novel mirrors for ultrashort laser pulses ...

  8. Novel Treatment of Produced Waters from Shale Gas with Zero Liquid Discharge by Geothermal Heat

    SBC: SAVENGY TECHNOLOGIES., LLC            Topic: 17a

    Vast amounts of impaired waters are produced in gas and oil wells. Energy-efficient desalination systems are needed to treat these waters to produce fresh water and concentrated brines. Mineral recovery systems can also yield valuable critical materials as byproducts. Savengy Technologies and University of Central Florida (UCF) will develop and commercialize an energy efficient system to treat sha ...

  9. Next-Generation TechNology for the Extremely Efficient Storage, Distribution, and Processing of Nuclear Physics Data

    SBC: Accelogic, LLC            Topic: 27a

    Millions of dollars are spent every year in generating the tons of data that are necessary for addressing nuclear physics grand challenge problems at DOE facilities. Due to inherent technical and financial limitations at the “last- mile” of the data delivery pipeline, only a small fraction of these expensive Peta bytes of data is available for immediate access by end-users at any given time. T ...
