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. Oxygen Separation with Dual Phase Nano-Composite Membrane

    SBC: Global Research and Development Inc.            Topic: 14a

    This Phase IIA proposal is in response to the DOE topic 14a request for breakthrough membrane technology that reduces the energy required to separate gases. In this work we are addressing O2 separation. There is a need for lower capital cost, and lower energy consumption in producing high purity oxygen for steel production, chemical processing, medical oxygen, and burning coal for higher efficienc ...

  2. Processing Mixed Salts and CO2 Utilization

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 15e

    There are abundant, valuable mineral resources available in mixed sea salts, bitterns, and brines. These mineral resources are generally not being exploited because the separating products from these salt mixtures is challenging and cost prohibitive. In some cases, these mixed salt systems are not considered as waste because they have simply been stockpiled and are awaiting a practical processing ...

  3. Development of a High Throughput Algal Dewatering System Using Magnetic Particles

    SBC: Manta Biofuel, LLC            Topic: 12c

    Algal biofuels hold the promise of directly replacing fossil fuels through domestic production of renewable gasoline, diesel fuel and jet fuel. Before algae can be converted to fuel it must be harvested and concentrated 400-fold, however, no commercial technology can perform this step cheaply enough to allow economic production of fuel from algae. The lack of a low cost algal harvesting technology ...

  4. Low-cost, low-defect, 2" GaN epi-ready substrates processed with E-Grinding

    SBC: SIXPOINT MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 11a

    Gallium nitride substrates are the key material for achieving high-end, energy-efficient semiconductor devices such as light emitting diodes (LEDs), laser diodes, power transistors and RF transistors. Significant effort has been exerted to develop cost-effective near-equilibrium ammonothermal (NEAT) growth of bulk GaN crystals; however, due to extreme hardness and chemical stability, a low-cost wa ...

  5. Ultracold Electron Bunch Generation via Plasma Photocathode Emission and Acceleration in a Beam-Driven Dielectric Waveguide

    SBC: RadiaBeam Systems, LLC            Topic: 23b

    Ultrafast electron microscopy using relativistic electron beams requires very short beams of exquisite quality for maximum contrast at submicron scales with fast time resolution. State-of the-art microscopy systems are based on radiofrequency photocathode technology where the accelerating gradient, and thus the beam quality, is limited by breakdown of the copper walls. RadiaBeam Technologies plans ...

  6. Novel Coating Technologies for Neutrino Focusing Horns

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 23c

    This technology addresses the need for a cost effective, simple and environmentally benign process to replace the current electroless nickel coating on Neutrino Focusing Horns, which are made of aluminum. One big challenge for depositing a coating on aluminum is that a special pretreatment is required owing to aluminum’s highly reactive nature. Even though the electroless nickel coating has been ...

  7. High-temperature superconducting cables for compact fusion reactors

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: 19c

    The feasibility of fusion as a practical energy source needs to be improved significantly by removing some of the restrictions that low-temperature superconductors put on the fusion magnet systems. One method to simplify the magnet system is by using high-temperature superconductors that allow for more compact magnet systems with higher performance and much larger temperature margins. The compact, ...

  8. High Purity 6-inch+ Diameter Single Crystal Germanium Wafers for Dark Matter CCD Photon Detectors

    SBC: PHDS COMPANY            Topic: 28e

    The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of High Energy Physics Research supports user facilities studying dark energy. The facilities include ground-based telescopes that would benefit from the availability of semiconductor focal planes with sensitivity ranging into the infrared. Greater infrared sensitivity will provide observation of red-shift data on the largest possible number of astronomical ob ...

  9. High Efficiency Klystrons for Accelerator Applications

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 24d

    Klystrons are the most commonly used RF sources for high energy accelerators. Their efficiency significantly impacts the acquisition and operating cost of accelerator systems. Higher efficiency RF sources are required to reduce the cost for future accelerators and colliders. Calabazas Creek Research Inc., in collaboration with SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, is developing a method for optimi ...

  10. Long-range Millimeter Wave Passive Tags

    SBC: DIRAC Solutions, Inc.            Topic: 01a

    This SBIR develops novel long-range passive Electromagnetic (EM) tags based on high-frequency microwaves, down to the millimeter wave regime. EM waves can go through fabrics, plastics, wood, and other occlusions for addressing covert target tracking. These higher frequency bands have many of the best features of the radio and the optical wavelengths, such as the ability to create focused beams to ...
