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: 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
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: QUANTUM VENTURA INC Topic: 39g
The DOE’s Light Water Reactor Sustainability (LWRS) program has funded 2 software packages, LOGOS and SR2ML. One of the key goals of LWRS is to manage the aging of systems, structures, and components (SSCs) so nuclear power plants can continue to operate safely and cost-effectively. The Safety, Risk, Reliability Model Library (SR2ML) is a software package that contains a set of reliability model ...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: 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: FuelCell Energy, Inc. Topic: 19c
Wind and solar electricity are gaining traction in the marketplace, but the electricity available from these sources is out of synch with demand Protonic ceramic electrochemical cells (PCECs) operating at intermediate temperatures (400 - 650°C) have enormous potential for electricity storage and delivery by reversible operation between electrolysis and fuel cell modes and therefore stand to addre ...STTR Phase I 2020 Department of Energy
SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: 18c
Although thermal and cold neutron scattering is widely used and is critical for success in many areas of materials science and engineering, relatively low neutron fluxes severely limit applications of not only laboratory neutrons generators, but also large national neutron facilities State-of-the-art thermal and cold neutron sources are large expensive national facilities, which serve diverse comm ...STTR Phase I 2020 Department of Energy
Spectral Near-Infrared and Thermal Infrared Imaging for Advanced Estimation of Thermal and Geochemical Soil-Plant-Water PropertiesSBC: BAYSPEC, INC. Topic: 26a
The spatiotemporal quantification of coupled hydro-biogeochemical processes between soil, plant, and atmosphere requires advances in remote sensing technologies and in understanding the link between the measured signals (ie spectral traits) and the hydro-biochemical properties While current UAV-based remote sensing technologies provide spectral reflectance in the visible- short wave infrared (VSWI ...STTR Phase I 2020 Department of Energy
