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. Scalable Polymerized Metal-Organic Frameworks with CO2-philic Rubbery Polymers for Membrane CO2/N2 Separation

    SBC: Helios-NRG, LLC            Topic: 18d

    As fossil fuels continue to serve as a major energy source, CO2 capture for utilization or sequestration is the only option to mitigate the CO2 emissions to the environment. However, the separation of CO2 from flue gas is an extremely costly proposition with existing technologies. Advanced membrane technology may address this challenge, if new membranes with CO2 permeance of 4,500 gpu and CO2/N2 s ...

  3. Development of Intelligent Systems for Atomically Precise Membranes, Macromolecular Catalysts and Therapeutics

    SBC: ThirdLaw LLC            Topic: 06a

    The discovery of advanced materials and molecules is difficult and largely an experimental endeavor. Computers are used to simulate materials and molecules but rarely to design them. We aim to demonstrate that novel materials and molecules can be computationally “evolved” using Genetic Programming, and we will develop: (1) Atomically precise membranes that would separate molecules at a fractio ...

  5. Controllable 3D Manufacturing System

    SBC: POLARONYX, INC.            Topic: 30g

    Additive manufacturing (AM), esp. laser AM, becomes a powerful tool to replace conventional methods such as casting and hot spray, due to its cost effectiveness and capability of making complex structure and composition. However, there is lack of efficient ways to do pre-, in-, and post process detection of defects, cracks, surface roughness, and alloy composition, to make nuclear quality parts. S ...

  6. Novel Process for Realization of High-QE Bialkali Photocathodes

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 01b

    Nuclear detection and spectroscopy is used to detect and characterize global nuclear security threats and prevent spread of materials, technology, and expertise related to weapons of mass destruction. High performance scintillation detectors are the backbone of such tools. Recent advances in scintillators have demonstrated superior spectroscopic qualities, rivaling those of the semiconductor detec ...

  7. Commercial ALD Process for Elimination of Memory Effects in Xe Beta Cells

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 02a

    There is a need to improve the monitoring techniques for radioactive xenon (Xe) in the atmosphere, so that clandestine nuclear test explosions can be confirmed. The equipment used for the detection of radioactive Xe gas incorporates plastic scintillators, which unfortunately trap the Xe gas during operation. The result is a residual Xe activity in the detector that affects subsequent measurements, ...

  8. Large Parts Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: 18b

    Modern fossil fuel energy production requires large scale machines with big size componentry. Such processes require using high temperatures and thus, chemically stable materials resistant against creep, wear, and high temperature oxidation. Manufacturing large size parts from high temperature alloys runs in many challenges related to chemical homogeneity/ phase composition stability and microstru ...

  9. High Value Carbon Products from Domestic Coal

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: 18c

    Outside of fuel and heat value of domestic coal there are very limited applications to manufacture carbon products including the byproduct coal tar pitch (CTP) which is a high value feedstock to produce high value carbon products whose value exceeds the fuel and heat values of the coal. There is no current domestic producer of CTP in spite of its value to produce battery anodes, graphite fibers, c ...

  10. Multiple Beam Power Grid Tubes for High Frequency and High Power Operation

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

    There are no compact, high-power, high-efficiency RF sources in the 300 – 650 MHz frequency range for ion and proton accelerators and colliders. Inductive output tubes are unable to provide the power levels required, and klystrons are extremely large and expensive in this frequency range. Calabazas Creek Research Inc. is proposing to develop multiple beam, gridded tubes to produce high power RF ...
