  6. High Force Spring Clamp System-A system to substitute spring clamps for bolts when connecting Superconducting RF Cavities in Order to Greatly Reduce Particulate Generation in a Clean Room Environment

    SBC: Hyperboloid L.L.C.            Topic: 30a

    This proposal for an SBIR project is to design and develop a simple system to assemble and seal the vacuum joints of SRF Cavities. The System substitutes highly sprung,“C” shaped spring clamps for bolts and nuts for applying sealing force on the metallic gaskets of cavity flanges. The system minimizes particle generation during assembly in the clean room by avoiding the rubbing/shedding contac ...

  7. Integrated Catalytic Membrane System for Modular Manufacturing Of On-Purpose Propylene at Shale Gas Sites

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 22a

    Shale gas is reshaping petrochemicals. A big change is the generation of “on purpose” propylene (OPP) plants. These OPP plants in most cases are based on propane dehydration (PDH). The reason for OPP plants is the change of mixtures being fed to crackers produces less propylene. In PDH plants, propane are converted to propylene but not quantitatively (e.g. 85% yield) so there is a need to impr ...

  8. High-Accuracy Angle Generator for Angular Calibration

    SBC: Raytum Photonics LLC            Topic: 12a

    Characterization and metrology (measurement) of super polished x-ray mirrors are extremely critical for the next generation x-ray free electron laser light sources. Currently, DOE light source facilities such as Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) in the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) solely rely on foreign resources to do the characterization and measurement based on the technology deve ...

  9. A Graphene Enhanced SiC- SiC Ceramic Composite Bonding Solution for Generation IV

    SBC: MC Technologies LLC            Topic: 20b

    Ceramic matrix SiC-SiC composites are currently the leading candidate for Generation IV nuclear reactor fuel cladding and other structural components, due to their excellent thermal and chemical stability under extreme conditions. However, robustly joining SiC structures when exposed to such harsh operating conditions still presents a major roadblock. A novel bonding joint compound leveraging grap ...

  10. Highly Transparent Aerogel with Refractive Index < 1.01 for High Energy Particle Detection

    SBC: Scintilex, LLC            Topic: 31d

    Cherenkov radiation, caused by fast charged particles in a transparent medium, is widely used for charged particle identification. To date, gaseous, liquid, and solid radiators have been used as sources of Cherenkov radiation. Aerogels with low refractive index and high light transmittance, are highly desirable for Cherenkov detectors. Development and testing of aerogels with a refractive index as ...
