  1. Rugged High-Resolution Xenon Gamma-Ray Spectrometer

    SBC: Constellation Technology            Topic: N/A

    70794 Monitoring the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons requires the detection of penetrating radiation emitted by nuclear materials (NM). Gaseous ionization chambers, based on collecting the charge produced by the ionizing radiation inside the detecting medium, are widely used to detect this radiation. To eliminate the dependence of pulse-height distribution at points of interaction, ...

  2. Durable Fiber-Optic Temperature Sensor for Coal Gasifiers

    SBC: Micromaterials, Inc            Topic: N/A

    70128 The efficient operation of coal gasifiers, a leading alternate energy technology, requires continuous temperature monitoring at several strategic locations within the reactor. However, the extreme temperature, pressure, and corrosiveness of the gasifier atmosphere makes this a difficult task, and existing temperature sensors are grossly inadequate for this application. This project ...

  3. High Gain, Fast Scan, Broad Spectrum, Parallel Beam Wavelength Dispersive X-Ray Spectrometer for SEM

    SBC: PARALLAX RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    70158 Many materials science investigations require the use of an x-ray spectrometer with Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) that has high resolution, high sensitivity for low energy x-rays, and high count rate ability. The instrument also must be able to scan quickly for fast identification of thin film layers, particulate identification, and semiconductor defect analysis. Such a spectrome ...

  4. Comparsion of Marine Microalgae Culture Systems for Fuels Production and Carbon Sequestration

    SBC: Seaag, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    70302 Microalgae technologies that not only would produce renewable fuels but also would mitigate greenhouse gases are being developed in the U.S. and abroad. A central R&D issue is the design of the culture systems, which can be of two general types: open ponds and closed photobioreactors. A direct experimental comparison of their attributes is required in order to continue the development ...

  5. High Current Density (Jc), Low AC Loss, Low Cost Internal-Tin Superconductors

    SBC: Supergenics I, Llc            Topic: N/A

    70027 Although internal tin Nb3Sn has been shown to have current densities close to the objectives of magnet designers for future particle accelerators, the AC losses and costs are too high. This project will combine the best features of the internal tin and modified jelly roll (MJR) processes to reduce the losses and costs. To lower the losses, multiple barrier restacks containing a ...

  6. A Method to Increase Current Density in a Mono Element Internal Tin Processed Superconductor Utilizing Zirconium Oxide to Refine Grain Size

    SBC: Supergenics I, Llc            Topic: N/A

    65026 Magnets for the next generation of high energy physics accelerators require improved superconductor performance to enable magnetic fields up to 15T. The superconductors must also be cost effective so that the magnets, and hence the accelerators, will be economically viable. This project will develop a process for improving the current carrying capacity of the superconducting filaments ...

  8. Concentric Tilted Double-Helix Dipole Magnets

    SBC: Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    70211 The high magnetic fields required for future accelerator magnets can only be achieved with Nb3Sn or other A15 or HTS type conductors, which are brittle and sensitive to mechanical strain. The traditional ¿cosine-theta¿ dipole configuration for these magnet designs has intrinsic drawbacks that make it difficult and expensive to employ such conductors. These drawbacks include: ...

  9. Superconducting Quadrupole Arrays for Multiple Beam Transport

    SBC: Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    70326 Beam transport in inertial fusion induction accelerators requires reliable, compact, and low cost superconducting quadrupole arrays. These multiple beam transport systems are interleaved with induction cores for acceleration, which poses unique requirements on the magnet-interconnect regions, the array cryostat, and the beam vacuum system. This project will design, build, and test a ...

  10. Radiation Effects Modeling for High Yield, Reliable Integrated Circuits

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Defense Special Weapons Agency (DSWA) has identified a need to improve the radiation hardness of advanced integrated circuit technologies. To be practical, this must be achieved in a cost effective way. This proposal by AET, Inc. directly addresses these concerns. Specifi-cally, this proposal provides a means to achieve significant advance in radiation hardness of large scale integrated cir ...
