  1. Radiation Hardened Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: EPIR, INC.            Topic: 30f

    Next generation rare isotope beam facilities require new and improved techniques, instrumentation and strategies to deal with the anticipated high radiation environment in the production, stripping and transport of ion beams. Radiation tolerant infrared video cameras using sensors with 5 µm and longer cut-off wavelength are needed for beam delivery and remote handling operations because they prov ...

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


    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 ...

  3. Adding Streaming Capabilities to HDF5

    SBC: Akadio, Inc.            Topic: 01d

    Many applications involved in real-time data collection need to monitor their data while it is being collected. This need occurs in a large and growing number of applications that use common scientific hierarchical data formats for data management, such as aircraft flight testing, autonomous vehicles, particle accelerators, and many more. There are two shortcomings to these formats that make it di ...

  4. General Techniques for Increasing Packing Density of Metal-Organic Frameworks for Enhanced Volumetric Storage of Hydrogen

    SBC: NuMat Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 17c

    Current hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) on the market rely on high-pressure hydrogen, 700 bar, storage systems to store and deliver hydrogen for use in the fuel cell. Bringing hydrogen to high pressures and storing hydrogen at high-pressure requires sophisticated compressors and specialized carbon wrapped tanks, respectively. This high-pressure constraint makes FCEVs vehicles challeng ...

  5. Rocstar Multiphysics Modernization, Enhancement and Cloud Interface Development

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: 03b

    The lack of availability and usability, combined with the cost of development, ownership, and operation of high performance compute-ready simulation capabilities, are significant barriers to utilization of modeling and simulation for American industries. Most open-source, free technologies are difficult to use and/or are not validated to the extent needed for industrial applications. Many relative ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Extreme Temperature Sample Environment for Materials Research using Neutron Scattering

    SBC: Materials Development, Inc.            Topic: 12b

    This project addresses the need to access and control extreme temperature sample environments that are used in many research applications at neutron beamline facilities. Successful Phase I feasibility showed the route to development and integration of controlled and extreme sample environments and new measurement techniques that are an important aspect of beamline operations and user support. In c ...

  9. Conversion of CO2 to Alkyl Carbonates using Ethylene Oxide as Feedstock

    SBC: E3TECSERVICE, LLC            Topic: 15c

    The challenges associated with CO2 capture, transport and storage have been well documented. Therefore, all possible options must be pursued for abatement of global CO2 emissions including CO2-based products. A new generation of CO2-capture technologies being developed with federally funded projects could show market-driven adoption if CO2 were used to manufacture competitively value-added product ...
