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
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
Domestic Halloysite-Derived Silicon as a Low-Cost High-Performance Anode Material for Li-Ion BatteriesSBC: APPLIED MINERALS INC Topic: 17a
To meet performance and cost targets for electric vehicles, substantial improvement is still required in lithium-ion batteries. A low-cost, high-capacity silicon anode will greatly aid in this effort, but current methods for generating functional nano-silicon for anodes use expensive metallurgical, templating, gaseous, or other top-down engineering processes. This project proposes to use the natur ...STTR Phase I 2021 Department of Energy
SBC: 3D ARRAY TECHNOLOGY LLC Topic: 17d
The monitoring of gaseous exhaust (e,g., NOx, NH3) and particulate matters (PMs) has been critical in the automotive diesel engine combustion emission control, for which various catalytic converters need be operated efficiently and environment-friendly, including diesel oxidation catalysts (DOC), diesel particulate filters (DPF), and selective catalytic reduction (SCR). For instance, in the DPF, t ...STTR Phase I 2021 Department of Energy
SBC: SIGNATURE RESEARCH, INC. Topic: NGA20C001
The team of Signature Research, Inc. and Michigan Technological University will develop and demonstrate methods and metrics to evaluate the performance of machine learning-based computer vision algorithms with low numbers of samples of labeled EO imagery. We will use the existing xView panchromatic dataset to demonstrate a proof-of-concept set of tools. If successful, in Phase II, we will extend t ...STTR Phase I 2021 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
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
High Temperature Electron Beam Additive Manufacturing of Tungsten Plasma Facing Components with Integrated Porous ArmorSBC: RADIABEAM TECHNOLOGIES, LLC Topic: 28a
Controlled thermonuclear fusion promises to radically transform our society, providing nearly limitless renewal energy. Cost-competitive fusion requires plasma facing components (PFC) which can sustain extreme photon and energetic particle fluxes over a lifetime of years, as these components will dictate the maintenance and overhaul periods of future reactors. Robust, scalable PFCs manufacturing m ...STTR Phase I 2021 Department of Energy
SBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP Topic: 29a
Fiber optic-based sensing devices and systems allow for electromagnetic interference-immune interrogation of temperature and strain distribution within the cryomodule coil winding pack of superconducting magnets. A specific use of fiber sensors is for rapid and redundant quench detection. Novel fiber-optic sensors may also be used for precision measurement of distributed and local temperature and/ ...STTR Phase I 2021 Department of Energy
SBC: WBGlobalSemi, Inc. Topic: 19b
DOE seeks development of optimized wind-compatible power converters for industry collaboration with potential cost savings, increased power performance, grid support and to move the grid connection power module from the wind turbine nacelle. Our project approach is to develop a much lower cost, smaller weight, smaller size solid state power converter (PFC PDK), utilizing commercial silicon carbide ...STTR Phase I 2021 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
