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. Linear Media Handling System for Superconductor Cable Fabrication

    SBC: Infinity Physics, LLC            Topic: 22c

    Superconductors offer the promise of tremendous energy savings and innovative devices due to increased energy and power density compared to existing limitations of conventional conductors. To date the expense of manufacturing and operating superconductors have limited their use in little more than first generation superconductor wound cables and magnets in nuclear magnetic resonance devices and sc ...

  2. Efficient 2-Micron Laser Driver for Laser Acceleration

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: 28a

    Laser plasma accelerators LPA) enabled by the Tm laser driver to be developed by this project offer much reduced size and cost compared to conventional accelerators of the same energy. This would drastically cut the cost of high- energy particle research on collider-based facilities and advanced light sources. Planned conventional accelerators e.g., for the proposed International Linear Collider) ...

  3. High Temperature Operable, Harsh Environment Tolerant Flow Sensors For Nuclear Reactor Applications

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 32k

    Advancements in sensors and instrumentation are needed to enhance economic competitiveness and improve/optimize the performance of existing and future nuclear power plants and nuclear power systems. A commonly noted sensor need for nuclear power systems is flow sensing in the various heat transfer mediums and to monitor/measure medium velocities and characterize mixing/cooling. The ability to depl ...

  4. Laser technologies for ultrasensitive groundwater dating using long-lived isotopes.

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 33d

    Our approach is to use DUV/VUV laser light to create the metastable Krypton used for dating ground water. The current arc method used leads to contamination of the electrodes, and therefore a lengthy cleaning process before another sample can be analyzed. In this work we propose to use single or multi-photon excitation through DUV/VUV laser systems which eliminated the need for arc discharge, and ...

  5. Integrable optics design principles for beam halo suppression in accelerator rings at the intensity frontier

    SBC: RadiaSoft LLC            Topic: 30a

    Future accelerator applications for discovery science and industrial applications will require more intense beams than ever before. To get to this level while still safely transporting the beam requires new concepts in lattice design. One solution is the idea of using lattice designs with very strong nonlinearities, but still with bounded motion, to prevent the unstable collective dynamics that pl ...

  6. Development of Software Framework for X-Ray Optics Simulation and Modeling

    SBC: RadiaSoft LLC            Topic: 04d

    The accelerator light source community has developed a library of well-validated numerical tools for studying X-ray generation from spontaneous emission. Many of these use approximate techniques, which may neglect key physics. It is therefore necessary to develop a complete framework for start-to-end modeling with a user-friendly interface. RadiaSoft LLC, in collaboration with Brookhaven National ...

  7. Thermal-Mechanical Stress in Semiconductor Devices

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 14a

    As semiconductors heat up, thermal expansion induces mechanical stresses and these stresses can either cause failure, or a change in the performance due to changes in electron transport. Understanding these e ects is challenging due to the coupled physics nature of the problem. General statement of how this problem is being addressed This problem is being addressed by solving for each of the separ ...

  8. Tunable Narrow-Band High Harmonic Beamline Optimized for Ultrafast Soft X-Ray Photoemission and Imaging

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    Coherent diffraction imaging (CDI) for short-wavelength imaging has proven revolutionary, allowing for the first time imaging with high numerical aperture and simultaneous phase- and amplitude-contrast. This development has created high commercial interest from the semiconductor and bio-medical industry as well as nano-science. Coherent extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and soft X-ray light sources are th ...

  9. Visualizing staggered fields and analyzing electromagnetic data with PerceptEM

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 41e

    In order for Moores law (exponential growth of compute capability) to continue to hold, the bandwidths of interconnects will need to be increased by 10x or moreto well beyond 100Gbs. This represents a formidable challenge to Integrated Circuit (IC) manufacturers because higher frequency will exacerbate already strained power dissipation of traditional copper interconnects. As a result, server and ...

  10. Development of On-Site Conical Spiral Welders for Large Wind Turbine Towers

    SBC: Keystone Tower Systems, Inc.            Topic: 07a

    Larger, taller wind turbines could significantly reduce the cost of wind energy and enable much broader deployment, but traditional tower designs cannot cost-effectively scale up due to the size constraints associated with road and rail transportation. Wind turbine towers face a critical bottleneck in the form of the 14-foot diameter limit imposed by over-road transport. With current designs, to ...
