  1. Dynamic Quantum Frequency Conversion for Quantum Networks

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: 06a

    Functions like data format conversion and signal routing are ubiquitous in traditional communication networks, but need modification to be suitable for use in future quantum-enabled networks. In particular, quantum signals do not allow for electronic processing and certain metrics like insertion loss and noise are much more critical for quantum signals than traditional optical signals. We will inv ...

  2. Copper Nano-TSVs for 3D Integrated Sensors

    SBC: Nhanced Semiconductors, Inc.            Topic: 29d

    3D circuit integration improves performance, reduces cost, and enables new applications by intimate heterogeneous integration of best of class semiconductor devices. A necessary element for 3D assembly is Through Silicon Vias (TSVs), which provide vertical electrical connections in the stacked device. NHanced currently employs tungsten to fill its nanoscale TSVs (0.4 to 1.2µm diameter). Tungsten ...

  3. Additively Manufactured Z-Channel Detectors for Heavy Ion Accelerator Diagnostics

    SBC: ROBOT NOSE CORPORATION            Topic: 30f

    Argonne National Laboratory has pioneered a new method for additively manufacturing MCPs and functionalizing their channels with atomic layer deposition. We will help extend their technology to particle detection at Nuclear Physics facilities for beam tuning, and test a prototype detector at the ATLAS facility. The following figure summarizes the 5x faster pulse response of our proposed detector: ...

  4. Development Of A Beam Halo Monitor

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 09b

    Advanced beam diagnostics are essential for reliable operation of high-performance accelerators and the intense beams produced by them. Non-invasive diagnostics can be used continuously with intense beams, while invasive techniques interfere with the beams and distort the beam profiles. In addition, traditional solid-based beam monitoring instrumentation produces unacceptable levels of radiation o ...

  5. Metal-Organic Frameworks for the Separation of O2 from Air

    SBC: NuMat Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 23b

    Under this Phase I SBIR DOE grant, NuMat will validate and evaluate the feasibility of air separation technology originally developed at Sandia National Laboratories. This promising technology employs oxygen selective metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). Given their oxygen selectivity, this technology will enable more energy efficient air separation, higher oxygen recovery rates, with a smaller overal ...

  8. Generation of Reduced Order Chemical Kinetics Mechanisms for Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Power Cycles Based on Fast-Running CFD Models.

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: 22d

    Detailed chemical kinetic mechanisms can include hundreds of species and thousands of reactions. Because each reaction occurs at a finite rate, the chemistry in a combustor is affected by the flow field. Due to the large number of species, detailed spatial effects are frequently ignored during key portions of mechanism reduction studies. The effect of this simplification is unclear in the producti ...

  9. A Cloud-based System for Complex Real-time Data Integration, Analysis, and Learning (CoRDIAL)

    SBC: Akadio, Inc.            Topic: 01b

    Rapid increase in observational data, brought about by the development and availability of Internet-of-Thing devices and measurement technological advancements, is posing a Big Data challenge for many domains of science and engineering, both research and commercial. These types of Big Data, however, are fundamentally different from the Big Data that exist in the business intelligence community alt ...
