The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Fate and Fortune: A Story-Based Algebra Simulator of High Seas Trade

    SBC: MidSchool Math, LLC            Topic: edIES17R0005

    With this Phase I funding, the project team will develop and test a prototype of Fate and Fortune, a simulated learning environment aligned for grade 8 algebra. The prototype will include story-based adventure set in the era of the spice trade of the 1600s. In the multi-player game, the class of students must apply algebraic equations to advance and learn academic content. At the end of Phase I, i ...

  2. Layer-by-layer Deposition of Ultra-thin Hybrid/ microporous Membrane for CO2 Separation

    SBC: Angstrom Thin FIlm Technologies LLC            Topic: 15a

    CO2 separation and capture is a global topic that is closely related to energy and environment. Separation via membrane techniques is energy-efficient compared to other separation techniques. Among various membranes, porous membranes usually have good performance in gas flux but poor performance in selectivity. The flux of a porous membrane is dependent on the membrane thickness; the selectivity o ...

  3. Non-Invasive Spin Polarization Monitoring

    SBC: Electrodynamic            Topic: 25e

    High quality spin polarization is an expectation for many users of Nuclear physics facilities. Accelerator operators and designers currently do not have real time, non-invasive polarization monitors, and no direct way to automate polarization quality optimization. The Thomas Jefferson National Laboratory (JLAB), Cornell’s Laboratory of Elementary-Particle Physics (LEPP) and, Electrodynamic, have ...

  4. Novel Process for Low-cost Large-area GaN Templates on Metal Foils

    SBC: IBEAM MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 15b

    Wide band gap devices are considered a key future electronics technology in a number of applications especially for high-power electronics. These devices are based on high-quality epitaxial films of wide band gap materials such as GaN deposited on single-crystal wafers. The single-crystal substrates are limiting because of the wafer size, expense, mechanical properties and availability. Providing ...

  5. Portable, low power soil gas analyzer

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 19a

    There is a need for soil gas analyzers to characterize subsurface biogeochemical processes by measuring simultaneously multiple gases that are signatures for specific processes. Instruments should be significantly more portable and require less power than what is currently available. The analyzers need to be suitable for field work and laboratory studies. Rugged, compact, low power, and reasonably ...

  6. Optical imaging system for in situ characterization of mixed phase clouds

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 20a

    Clouds play leading role in the Earth's global energy and solar radiation balance. Improving cloud models requires information on the cloud microphysical properties, such as particle size distribution and concentration, cloud composition (droplets, ice particles) and also information on ice crystal shapes (habits). New lightweight and low power instruments for characterization of mixed-phase cloud ...

  7. Development of Durable Active Supports for Low Platinum Group Metal Catalysts

    SBC: Pajarito Powder, LLC            Topic: 15c

    Fuel cells are a transformative technology with the potential to revolutionize power generation for both the transportation and power generation industries. A primary issue currently preventing the adoption of fuel cells is that current platinum based catalysts require high amounts of expensive platinum in order to meet designed performance requirements. In this project, Pajarito Powder in collab ...

  8. Atomic Force Microscope Active Optical Probe for Single-Molecule Imaging and Time-Resolved Optical Spectroscopy

    SBC: ACTOPROBE LLC            Topic: 08b

    Though technical advances in Atomic Force Microscopy have enabled scientists to analyze complex information at the molecular scale, current technology acquires information about mechanical, not chemical/optical properties. This project will develop an innovative class of atomic force microscopy probes that will enable scientists to acquire nanoscale information about mechanical/optical/chemical pr ...

  9. Practical isotopic analyzer for subsurface gases

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 18a

    Mesa Photonics, the University of Texas, and Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory plan to develop a new scientific instrument that can aid understanding of soils and groundwater that are important to agriculture, hydrology, and earth systems

  10. Optical Vortices through Laser Beam Engineering for Remote Sensing Applications

    SBC: OPTICSLAH, LLC            Topic: 01d

    Because it can be used in situ without the need for any sample preparation, optical emission spectroscopy techniques are favored as a spectroscopic tool to remotely detect and interrogate nuclear materials. While they have been successful in the lab, field tests results are lacking because high laser intensity is needed at standoff distances. Furthermore, the return signal from optical interrogati ...
