SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC Topic: 29aq
Ecological and biogeochemical processes occurring along coastal interfaces are poorly understood on a mechanistic level and critically underrepresented in current models, impeding our ability to make informed resource management decisions. Stable isotope ratio measurements, e.g., 13C/12C, can provide detail about pathways and sources by adding specificity and attribution information that concentra ...STTR Phase I 2021 Department of Energy
Development of Ligand-Associated Solid-Liquid Extraction Media System for Separation of High Purity Individual Rare Earth Elements from Coal-based ResourcesSBC: GLYCOSURF, INC. Topic: 24a
Commercial sources of rare earth elements include bastnaesite (La, Ce)FCO3, monazite, (Ce, La, Y, Th)PO4, and xenotime, YPO4. However, the processing of these materials to extract and recover the rare earth elements is challenging and very process intensive. However, there are numerous domestic sources of rare earth elements, from waste materials such as coal fly ash, which could be extracted bene ...STTR Phase I 2021 Department of Energy
SBC: QUANTUM VENTURA INC Topic: 03a
Cybersecurity in HPC environments operates at much larger scales than traditional IT domains and the traditional Machine learning networks are not fast enough to handle large volumes of computations. Neural networks combined with Edge-based hardware-resident next-generation technologies such as neuromorphic processors can monitor and even predict events in high throughput environments and hence pr ...STTR Phase I 2021 Department of Energy
A Novel Low-Cost, Miniaturized Hydrogen Sensor with High Robustness and Reliability for Continuous Hydrogen MonitoringSBC: 4D MAKER, LLC Topic: 27b
Hydrogen has been widely used in many applications from aerospace and chemicals to fuel cells and satellite power supply. Although hydrogen is not toxic, it has a very broad flammability range (4%-74% concentration in air and 4%-94% in oxygen), leading to explosion in the presence of heat source. Thus, hydrogen monitoring is of paramount importance during the processes of hydrogen production, tran ...STTR Phase I 2021 Department of Energy
SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC Topic: 06a
Quantum networks will be tasked with entangling physically separated quantum nodes and facilitating secure communication between distant parties. This necessitates the development of devices that can support high data rate transparent optical quantum networks that coexist with classical networks on a shared optical fiber transmission system. Freedom Photonics will develop a Quantum All-Optical Tra ...STTR Phase I 2021 Department of Energy
Novel isotope sensor for spatially-resolved analysis of nutrient exchange in the rhizosphere Topic: 22.a. Technologies for Characterizing the Rhizosphere: Plant-Microbe-Mineral InteractionsSBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC Topic: 22a
Ensuring adequate agricultural productivity in the face of an increasing human population is a major concern with implications for both production of bioenergy products (Jones and Hinsinger, 2008) and global food security. Increasing agricultural productivity requires a stronger understanding of soil biogeochemical processes that impact plant nutrient availability. We propose development of an inn ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
SBC: ERIK PAGE & ASSOCIATES, INC. Topic: 06b
Society at large and DOE in particular have an interest in the continued development and refinement of a smart grid infrastructure that more efficiently and reliably matches electrical resources to demands. While technological advances in recent years have improved the smart grid, these advances have been limited by a lack of granularity of data (e.g. environmental conditions at multiple locations ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
SBC: NIELSON SCIENTIFIC LLC Topic: 37f
Metal mesh filters are used to control the transmission of infrared through terahertz radiation in a variety of systems including sensors, cameras, and high-performance telescopes. Currently, high-performance metal mesh infrared filters are fabricated using photolithography but this is a costly and time consuming process and it is limited to filter diameters of 300 mm or less (the largest size tha ...STTR Phase I 2021 Department of Energy
SBC: INNOSENSE CORPORATION Topic: 29a
The Department of Energy Office of Fusion Energy Sciences is seeking the development of wrap-able radiation-resistant electrical insulators for superconducting magnet coils used in fusion energy reactor systems. These insulators must: (1) exhibit low gas generation under irradiation, (2) have higher pot life, and (3) exhibit attributes of insulation systems with high bond and higher strength and f ...STTR Phase I 2021 Department of Energy
SBC: NIELSON SCIENTIFIC LLC Topic: 11b
Silicon wafers are the single largest cost component within solar photovoltaic modules. To maintain the cost reduction targets outlined in industrial roadmaps, wafer costs need to be significantly reduced. Reducing the cost of wafers requires reducing the kerf-loss and wafer thickness while increasing throughput in tools for processing silicon ingots into wafers. The proposed technology augments t ...STTR Phase I 2020 Department of Energy
