  1. Large-Aperture 6 T Dipole for Ion Storage Ring

    SBC: Accelerator Technology Corporation            Topic: 30g

    ATC requests Phase 1 SBIR funding to develop a 2-layer NbTi Cable-in-Conduit (CIC) conductor suitable for a large-aperture 6 T dipole. ATC has successfully developed a single-layer 13 kA NbTi CIC cable, and our collaborators at Texas A&M University (TAMU) have successfully used it to make a 3 T dipole suitable for the arcs of a 100 GeV Ion Ring that has until now been the baseline design for JLEIC ...

  2. Low-cost and Efficient Cooling of on-Detector Electronics Using Conformal Thermoelectric Modules

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: 29d

    Thermoelectric coolers (TECs) are solid-state devices with no moving parts and working fluids to provide reliable cooling power compared to traditional cooling systems such as vacuum compressors. However, their relatively high cost, small form factor and low efficiency have relegated them to niche applications such as small scaled portable coolers and yet to justify the large volume cooling compet ...

  3. Diode lasers and Small Nanoparticulate Matrices Combine to Elevate Sensitivity of MILDI-MSI

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: 24a

    Imaging of molecular components of plant tissue (roots, leaves, seeds etc.) by microfocused laser desorption is maturing into a useful tool for describing plant molecular biology. Due to pioneering work in DOE laboratories and elsewhere the detection sensitivity of laser desorbed molecules is increased by the addition microscale sized colloidal metals (e.g. Sliver) or graphite to aid as a “matri ...

  4. EdgeSense: Smart Sensors and FPGA based Heterogeneous Edge Computing Unit

    SBC: CIRRUS360 LLC            Topic: 06b

    Data influx from sources at the edge of the network is exploding e.g. from sensors to collect weather data, satellite imagery, seismic sensors, LIDAR data for autonomous vehicles. Whereas traditionally over the last decade compute and storage has become increasingly centralized in the cloud. This dichotomy prevents low-­‐latency decisions and actions triggered by the data as well as incurs high ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Predictive Analytics For Optimal Well Bore Placement

    SBC: ENZIN LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY            Topic: 21b

    Today, the US Land Unconventional Resource market increasingly deploys advanced geosteering methods with the primary objective of maximizing length of wellbore lateral section in target zone to optimize production. Real time geosteering work flows are best driven by relatively expensive near-bit measurements but instead are generally supported with less effective, low cost MWD solutions that are i ...

  7. Scanning Tunneling Microscope based Hydrogen Depassivation Lithography Automation Via Artificial Intelligence

    SBC: Zyvex Labs LLC            Topic: 16a

    Atomically Precise Manufacturing will bring enormous energy savings through improved efficiency in power generation and use, via light weighting, reduced friction and wear, and a host of other improvements in materials and active mechanisms. Atomically Precise Manufacturing will bring considerable benefit to our technology, economy, and standard of living. However, significant technological develo ...

  8. Enhance Full-Waveform Inversion with Machine Learned Low-Frequency Signals

    SBC: Advanced Geophysical Technology, Inc.            Topic: 21b

    Novel discoveries are going to prove essential for attaining a significant percentage of oil output rather than solely depending on existing fields to keep up with the energy demanding of the United States. As one of the critical sectors of Exploration and Production, seismic surveys are used to produce detailed images of local geology to determine the location and size of possible oil and gas res ...

  9. Permanent Magnet (PM) Induction Heater for Paraffin Abatement

    SBC: AUSTIN GEOTECH SERVICES INC            Topic: 20b

    There are an estimated 1.7 million oil and gas wells in the United States, 771,000 of these are considered marginal producers. Combined they make up 11.3% of the US oil production and 8.3% of the US gas production. In that last 10 years, over 131,000 of these oil wells and 48,000 gas wells have been plugged and abandoned. Most of these wells suffer from paraffin plugging problems. The only way to ...

  10. High-Speed Platform for Highly Parallel STM lithography and Hierarchical Assembly

    SBC: Zyvex Labs LLC            Topic: 17e

    Nanotechnology has failed to live up to its promise of exploiting the emerging properties at the nanoscale because of the lack of manufacturing precision thus denying society many energy saving materials and applications. There is therefore a strong need to realize the promise of complex nanosystems by developing atomically precise manufacturing (APM). This project targets a key component of an At ...
