  1. Oxygen Isotope and Carbon Dioxide Analyzer for Measurements of Respiratory Quotients and Mechanisms in Soil and Dissolved Gases

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: 24b

    DOE manages one of the largest groundwater and soil remediation efforts in the world and is responsible for the remediation of 6.5 trillion liters of contaminated ground water and 40 million cubic meters of contaminated soil generated at over 7000 discrete sites. These efforts often involve bioremediation, in which substances are injected into the subsurface to enhance microbial decomposition, and ...

  3. Radiation Hard Pixel Tracking Sensor for High Luminosity Colliders

    SBC: Sensor Creations, Inc.            Topic: 29c

    In this project we are proposing to develop a radiation hard monolithic active pixel sensor (MAPS) for MIPS tracking in high luminosity Nuclear Physics particle detectors. The performance is estimated to nearly match that of state of the art hybrid sensors. The device will be able to support very high hit rates of 750 MHz/cm2. These devices are suited to cover very large areas very close to the ve ...

  4. Low Temperature Thermionic Electron Source With Narrow Energy Spread

    SBC: Spark Thermionics, Inc.            Topic: 15c

    A major challenge in the field of electron microscopy is to reach energy resolution as low as 1 meV, which would improve the performance of currently used technologies and facilitate the development of novel techniques. The main roadblock limiting these developments are the currently available electron sources, which can only achieve resolution of 10 meV, an achievement that is already linked to m ...

  6. Development of Efficient Catalytic HBr Oxidation to Enable a Commercially Feasible Butane to Butenes Conversion Process

    SBC: Reaction 35, LLC            Topic: 22a

    The boom in shale gas development has caused US ethylene producers to shift to ethane feedstock, which has dramatically reduced the amount of higher hydrocarbon co-products, such as C3 and C4 olefins, that are themselves important feedstocks for derivative chemicals. In order to maintain productivity, chemical producers are interested in new technologies that can make these petrochemicals cost-eff ...

  8. Real-time Autonomous Gas Analyzer for Soils

    SBC: Intellisense Systems, Inc.            Topic: 24b

    Terrestrial ecosystems as an important source and sink for critical atmospheric gases, nutrients, and water play a vital role in the larger ecosystem. Gaining insights into these systems requires computational studies involving coupled reactions between complex subsurface systems. However, the predictive value of these studies is currently limited by the availability and accuracy of relevant data. ...

  10. Rapid Imaging of CO2 Storage Using Deep Learning with 4D Electromagnetic Data

    SBC: Groundmetrics, Inc.            Topic: 21c

    Subsurface carbon capture and storage has the potential to substantially reduce net carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and provide potentially important benefits for the environment, US energy security and economic growth. Assuring safe operation of carbon storage facilities requires effective methods for monitoring complex CO2 reservoirs over decades to detect fluid leakage. While state‐of‐the‐ ...
