Low-Cost Hybrid Plasmonic and Photonic "Campanile" Near-Field Probes by Nanoimprint LithographySBC: Abeam Technologies Inc. Topic: 07a
Near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) is a powerful and unique approach to characterize the chemical, physical and potentially biochemical properties of materials with the nanometer scale resolution in real-time. A key element for NSOM systems that combine optical spectroscopy with scanning probe microscopy, is the actual probe itself. While many commercial vendors offer off-the-shelf meta ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of Energy
SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: 08a
A recent report by the Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee entitled “Challenges at the Frontiers of Matter and Energy” pointed to the need to better understand hierarchical and heterogeneous materials, often at the mesoscopic scale. Such structures can be studied by x-ray and neutron scattering techniques, but they do not generally yield narrow signals in momentum or energy space. The nat ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of Energy
SBC: ELECTROFORMED NICKEL INC Topic: 15a
Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. These methods require large installations at national laboratories, such as Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and other facilities constructed or planned in the US and around the world. These facilities serve a large and diverse community ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of Energy
SBC: RADIABEAM TECHNOLOGIES, LLC Topic: 24a
Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is one of the primary tools for biological and materials characterization; however, there is an overarching need to push TEM temporal resolution into a ps-range to study physical processes on their fundamental spatial and temporal scales. With state-of-the-art TEM, however, it is not possible to capture a single image with a temporal resolution better than 10 ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of Energy
Fidelity Enhancement of Nuclear Power Plant Simulators Utilizing High Fidelity Simulation PredictionsSBC: WESTERN SERVICES CORPORATION Topic: 30c
Accurate simulation of nuclear power plant behavior is necessary for both engineering and training applications. An engineering grade simulator, used for design, safety analysis and operations, is characterized by high fidelity, computational power, lack of real-time capability, and user non-interactive environment. By contrast, a training grade simulator, used for operator training and education, ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
Low-cost and Flexible Transparent Electrodes Based on Ag–ZTOF (Zn–Sn–O–F) Amorphous Composites Through Ink-jet PrintingSBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC. Topic: 09b
Sn-doped In2O3 (ITO) is the industry standard and most widely used transparent conducting electrode (TCE) because of its good electrical and optical properties. However, ITO has a number of disadvantages: ITO is not a suitable TCE for next-generation, high-efficiency, flexible OLEDs, because of its inappropriate work function, difficulty in creating desired patterns, low stability, delaminantion d ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
SBC: CRYOMAGNETICS INC Topic: 26b
Hig e and advanced materials are continually demanding higher magnetic fields. Efforts to generate fields in excess of 25 Tesla have been a principal driver of high temperature superconductor research. Although HTS materials were discovered decades ago and have always shown significant potential for high field use, until recently magnets using the technology have remained elusive. Great progress h ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC Topic: 29d
Modern quantum information systems employ optical photons for long distance communication, operating at ambient temperature, between microwave cavities, which house microwave photons used in quantum computing and microwave detection. These optical photons, carried by fiber-optic or free-space links, offer a low-cost, uncooled alternative to bulky, expensive microwave coaxial cables, which are loss ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
SBC: GLOBAL ALGAE INNOVATIONS, INC. Topic: 08c
Renewable algae fuels are the source of energy for the future. It was demonstrated that algae fuels can be produced and they were successfully used in demonstration airplane flights and cars. The cost of algae oil is still high and cannot compete with fossil fuels. High algae growth and ability to accumulate oil fast are the key factors that will make algae based biofuels affordable. Diatoms are t ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
SBC: GLOBAL ALGAE INNOVATIONS, INC. Topic: 08c
For economically viable large-scale production of microalgae based food and biofuel to become a reality, significant improvements in algal productivity need to be achieved. With current regulatory guidelines, large scale outdoor cultivation of microalgae for these products restricts the use of transgenic algal strains, which in the laboratory, have thus far been the primary strategy taken to effec ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
