The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. COUNTERCURRENT OPEN GRADIENT MAGNETIC SEPARATION OF PYRITE FROM COAL

    SBC: Advanced Energy Dynamics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH PROJECT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY OF A MAGNETIC SEPARATOR FOR OPERATION ON PULVERIZED COAL. A THEORETICAL COMPARISON OF THE SEPARATOR WITH WORK PUBLISHED ON OPEN GRADIENT MAGNETIC SEPARATION BY THE OAK RIDGE NATIONAL LABORATORY INDICATES THAT THE SEPARATOR WILL HAVE HIGH LEVELS OF ASH CLEANING. THIS IS BECAUSE OF ITS COUNTERCURRENT PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION ...

  2. AN OPTICAL IMPULSE GENERATOR

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED FOR AN INEXPENSIVE, COMPACT, LOW MAINTENANCE SUB-PICOSECOND OPTICAL PULSE SOURCE TO DRIVE AN OPTICALLY SAMPLED AND TRIGGERED OSCILLOSCOPE. ADEQUATE LASER SOURCES PRESENTLY OCCUPY TEN SQUARE FEET AND REQUIRE REGULAR MAINTENANCE, 20 KW OF ELECTRICITY, AND COOLING WATER; AND THEY COMPRISE THE MAIN COST ITEM IN THE PICOSECOND OSCILLOSCOPE. THE NEW PULSED LASER UNDER DEVELOPMENT IN THIS ...

  4. A REAL-TIME IMAGING SYSTEM FOR ENHANCING DNA HYBRIDIZATION TECHNOLOGIES

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ONE OF THE MOST ACTIVE AND CHALLENGING FIELDS IN MOLECULAR BIOLOGY TODAY IS THE GENETIC STUDY OF EUKARYOTIC SYSTEMS. THE PRELIMINARY, BUT OFTEN RATE LIMITING, STEPS IN THIS AREA ARE THE DNA TRANSFER/HYBRIDIZATION TECHNOLOGIES ASSOCIATED WITH GENE MAPPING, AND THE SCREENING OF DNA LIBRARIES FOR GENE ISOLATION. THESE PROCEDURES USE RADIOLABELED HYBRIDIZATION TECHNIQUES AND AUTORADIOGRAPHY TO ACHIEVE ...

  5. A MICROWAVE ION SOURCE FOR REMOTE LEAK DETECTION AND VACUUM ANALYSIS INSTRUMENTATION FOR FUSION

    SBC: Applied Science And Technology            Topic: N/A

    PRESENTLY AVAILABLE MASS SPECTROMETER-BASED VACUUM INSTRUMENTS ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR USE IN ANTICIPATED FUSION FACILITIES, WHERE TRITIUM WILL BE USED. THE ION SOURCE IS THE PRIMARY LIMITATION. THIS R&D PROGRAM WILL LEAD TO DEVELOPMENT OF A MINIATURE ECR (ELECTRON CYCLOTRON RESONANT)MICROWAVE ION SOURCE FOR APPLICATION IN LEAK DETECTORS AND VACUUM INSTRUMENTATION. THE ECR ION SOURCE CAN BE DEVELOPED ...

  6. DIAMOND COATINGS AND WINDOWS FOR MILLIMETER MICROWAVE TUBES

    SBC: Applied Science And Technology            Topic: N/A

    THE UNIQUE PROPERTIES OF DIAMOND MAKE IT ATTRACTIVE AS A MATERIAL FOR USE IN HIGH FREQUENCY, HIGH POWER, MILLIMETER MICROWAVE TUBES AND TRANSMISSION LINES. RECENT ADVANCES IN GYROTRONS AND FREE ELECTRON LASERS (FELS) AS POWER SOURCES, AND EXCELLENT PHYSICS RESULTS FROM THE T-10 TOKAMAK IN THE U.S.S.R. AND BIG-D AT GA TECHNOLOGIES IN THE U.S., HAVE HAD A MAJOR IMPACT ON THE FUSION PROGRAM. AN EXPER ...

  7. RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF MULTISEGMENT CERAMIC RING CRYOGENIC SEALS

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE MAJOR LIMITING RELIABILITY COMPONENT OF CRYOGENIC SYSTEMS HAS ALWAYS BEEN SEALS. BESIDES CONTRIBUTING TO GAS CONTAMINATION AND DEBRIS PARTICLE ACCUMULATION, SEALS HAVE FAILED PHYSICALLY. AS A RESULT, SEALS HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MAJORITY OF CRYOGENIC LIQUEFACTION AND REFRIGERATION SYSTEM FAILURES. A POTENTIALLY VIABLE SOLUTION IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MULTISEGMENT CERAMIC RING CRYOGENIC ...

  8. PLASTIC FILM-SUPPORTED DNA SEQUENCING GELS

    SBC: Betagen Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE RESEARCH PLAN IS TO DEVELOP A PROCESS OF PREPARING THIN POLYACRYLAMIDE GELS FOR DNA SEQUENCING, SUBSTITUTING PLASTIC FILM FOR GLASS PLATES AS THE SUPPORTINGMATERIAL. A PROCESS TO MAKE PLASTIC FILM-SUPPORTED GELS WITH SATISFACTORY ELECTROPHORETIC PROPERTIES WILL ALLOW PREPARATION OF READY-TO-USE GELS AND FORM THE BASIS OF A USEFUL MANUFACTURING PROCESS. COMMERCIAL AVAILABILITY ...
