  1. The Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects on Nano-technology Microelectronics

    SBC: Defense Electronics Corporation            Topic: DTRA121002

    Defense Electronics Corporation (DEC) proposes an innovative radiation hardened by design (RHBD) and reliability improvement solution for silicon, III-V compounds (e.g. SiGe, SiC, GaN, InP, GaAs,), carbon nanotubes (CNT), and graphene. The method is based on analyzing chip-partitioned quiescent current signatures associated with failure modes common to these process technologies. Furthermore, the ...

  2. Holistic Operations Planning System (HOPS)

    SBC: Accelerated Data Works, Inc.            Topic: 01d

    The open-source network management software ecosystem is currently a collection of loosely-related projects with poor support for long term planning and high-level network information. Network planners have few free tools to help them balance the many variables in potential network expansions (including cost, performance, and energy usage), and few free tools to communicate these plans with manag ...

  3. Extreme-Speed Eigensolver Suite

    SBC: Accelogic, LLC            Topic: 40a

    One of the most important numerical problems in science and engineering is that of finding the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of large-scale matrices. Methods for the solution of these problems, usually called eigensolvers, are fundamental to many industrial and scientific applications ranging from computational chemistry problems to structural design, to other modeling- and simulation- intense disc ...

  4. Air Riding Seal Technology for Advanced Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: Florida Turbine Technologies Inc.            Topic: 18b

    To meet future power generation needs, Florida Turbine Technologies, Inc. (FTT) proposes the development of an innovative design approach to provide a highly durable contactless air riding rotating-to-static seal. Rotating-to-static seals are critical components of all gas turbine engines. The seals can significantly affect the efficiency, operability, and durability of a gas turbine engine. As su ...

  5. Complete Characterization of Ultrafast X-Ray Pulses

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 12d

    We are improving critical technologies needed for the development of laser-driven, table-top ultrafast x-ray sources suitable for ultrafast characterization of transient structures of energized molecules undergoing dissociation, isomerization, or intramolecular energy redistribution. In this SBIR project, Mesa Photonics will develop an X-ray ultrafast laser pulse measurement instrument for complet ...

  6. Chemical remote sensor for proliferation

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 50d

    Mesa Photonics plans development of a remote sensor to be used to detect clandestine nuclear material processing. We have identified a volatile chemical that is indicative of key steps in uranium isotope enrichment, and can be detected readily at low concentrations using optical methods. Small plumes that are about 1 m across and containing as little as 20 parts per million (ppm), or less, of th ...

  7. Intelligent Trace Analysis for Automatic Extraction of Analog Seismographic Data

    SBC: RETRIEVER TECHNOLOGY            Topic: 06c

    Seismic detection systems are one of the primary means used to monitor subsurface nuclear explosions. Consequently, the study of previous seismic events provides a critical underpinning for ongoing nonproliferation efforts. In this proposal, Retriever Technology will continue its efforts to develop accurate and automated software to extract digital X-Y trace information from historical analog sei ...

  8. Novel Polishing Process to Fabricate Ultra Low Thickness Variation Diamond Substrates for Next Generation Beam Tracking Detectors

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: 45b

    Diamond crystals with small total thickness variation (TTV) and local thickness variation (LTV) values are needed for position sensitive fast particle detectors for particle tracking/timing, and detecting direct/indirect beams. The fabrication of ultra-flat, low surface defectivity diamond detectors represents a major technological challenge. Although current commercial technology can produce 100m ...

  9. Micro-Fluidic Spectrometer for Measuring Groundwater Contamination

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 08a

    DOEs efforts to monitor legacy sites for groundwater contamination would benefit from turn-key systems that can measure metal contaminant concentrations in situ. Southwest Sciences proposes to develop a micro-fluidic sensor for measuring heavy metals in groundwater by measuring their uv-visible spectra. High sensitivity will be obtained using cavity enhanced spectroscopy. A novel cavity enhanced o ...

  10. Superconducting Tunnel Junction Detectors for High-Resolution X-Ray Spectroscopy

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 17c

    X-ray absorption spectroscopy is a widely used experimental technique for studying the composition and chemistry of materials and is one of the driving forces behind the explosive growth of synchrotron light sources and their increase in brightness by many orders of magnitude. However, advances in detector technology have not kept pace with advances in synchrotron brightness, leading to limitation ...
