  2. High Temperature (750 to 800 C) Silicon Carbide Receiver Assembly for High Efficiency Gen3 Molten Salt Concentrating Solar Power

    SBC: Ceramic Tubular Products            Topic: 12f

    In 2011, the US Department of Energy (DOE) launched the SunShot Initiative with the goal of making solar electricity cost-competitive with conventional power generation by 2020. Since 2011, research funded by the DOE has resulted in substantial progress toward meeting the aggressive SunShot performance and cost targets, but significant technical hurdles remain. In particular, the Gen3 CSP Roadmap ...

  4. Highly Transparent Aerogel with Refractive Index < 1.01 for High Energy Particle Detection

    SBC: Scintilex, LLC            Topic: 31d

    Cherenkov radiation, caused by fast charged particles in a transparent medium, is widely used for charged particle identification. To date, gaseous, liquid, and solid radiators have been used as sources of Cherenkov radiation. Aerogels with low refractive index and high light transmittance, are highly desirable for Cherenkov detectors. Development and testing of aerogels with a refractive index as ...

  5. Scalable Framework for Integrating Multi-Omics Data for Biosystem Analysis

    SBC: Omics Data Automation, Inc.            Topic: 01a

    Understanding the genomic basis of economically important plants for growth time, crop yield, responses to drought and disease resistance is of critical importance to sustaining and improving food supplies for humans and livestock, as well as insuring sufficient raw material availability for industries that depend on plant materials, such as biofuel manufacture. Current computational methods for a ...

  6. Advanced Computation Methods towards High-Resolution Fiber Optic Distributed Acoustic Sensing

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 21a

    Commercial-scale geothermal reservoirs are thousands of feet below the Earth’s surface, so scientists rely on indirect measurements to reconstruct 3D subsurface reservoir maps from seismic vibrations, electromagnetic waves, or gravity measurements. Geothermal operators typically use electromagnetic or gravity surveys, but seismic surveys are preferable because they enable higher-resolution 3D su ...

  7. Plasma-Catalysis of CO2 and CH4 to Produce High Value Chemicals

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 20d

    The goal of this work is to develop a new technology that can produce acetic acid in a single-step and do so at reduced temperature and ambient pressure. Current techniques to synthesize acetic acid require methanol and carbon dioxide, both of which are largely made from syngas produced from dry reforming of methane. However, high temperatures are needed to produce the syngas (of which a component ...

  8. Novel Treatment of Produced Waters from Shale Gas with Zero Liquid Discharge by Geothermal Heat

    SBC: SAVENGY TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 17a

    Vast amounts of impaired waters are produced in gas and oil wells. Energy-efficient desalination systems are needed to treat these waters to produce fresh water and concentrated brines. Mineral recovery systems can also yield valuable critical materials as byproducts. Savengy Technologies and University of Central Florida (UCF) will develop and commercialize an energy efficient system to treat sha ...

  10. A Cold Cycle 3He/4He Dilution Refirgerator for milliKelvin cooling with an Intermediate Heat Sink at 1.4 Kelvin

    SBC: ADVANCED RESEARCH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 32c

    As the size of quantum information systems (QIS) increases with technology development, the required cooling power at temperatures below 100mK will increase beyond that which currently available with commercially available milliKelvin cooler technologies. Additionally, as the size of QIS increases the number of electrical signal leads that require heat sinking in the 1K-temperature range will also ...
