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. Rugged, Long-Life Flow Monitoring for Enhanced Geothermal Systems

    SBC: OZARK INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, INC.            Topic: 12a

    Access to the earth’s subsurface requires technologies that can operate at extremely high temperatures and pressures. Enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) require drilling deep and hot wells; while making better use of each well through techniques such as fracking and zonal isolation. Establishing a well requires monitoring electronics that can produce temperature, pressure and flow profiles in the ...

  2. Utilization of waste CO2 to make renewable chemicals and fuels

    SBC: Opus 12 Incorporated            Topic: 09a

    Utilization of waste carbon dioxide from industrial sources could (1) provide an additional income stream for CO2 emitting industries and (2) provide a distributed and domestic source of carbon-based compounds for use as chemicals and fuels. An efficient, cost-effective, and modular reactor for electrochemical reduction of CO2 (ECO2R) to carbon-neutral or –negative compounds is needed to make th ...

  3. High Energy-Density and Long Life-Time Lithium-Sulfur Batteries

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 14a

    Conventional lithium-ion batteries demonstrate great potential for applications in electrical vehicles, but they face some major challenges such as low energy density and high cost. It is worthwhile to pursue alternative strategies to address the barriers of cost and energy density. We propose to develop advanced rechargeable lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries that have much higher theoretical energy ...

  4. Advanced Metallic-Silicon Carbide Composite Claddings for Improved Damage Tolerance

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: 29b

    The recent events at the Fukushima nuclear power plant highlight the need for enhanced accident tolerance. Of particular concern is the overheating of standard zirconium alloy cladding in a loss of coolant accident (LOCA). One of the leading candidates for future claddings is a silicon carbide (SiC) composite. However, it is clear that due to the inherent brittle nature of ceramics and the intrins ...

  5. Passive Acoustic Metamaterial Proppants for Advanced Fracture Diagnostics

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    Ineffective fracture design and practices in unconventional oil and natural gas wells present environmental risks and reduce the production efficiency of hydraulic fracturing, largely due to the inability to measure propped fracture geometry and behavior using current proppants and available tools. In this project, a unique proppant detection technology based on acoustic metamaterials is being dev ...

  6. Surface Modification of Cellulose Nanomaterial for use in Hydrophobic Matrix Materials

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 08a

    Cellulose nanofibrils represent a natural, sustainable source of nanofibers that can be used as reinforcing additives. Unfortunately, the hydrophilic surface properties of the cellulose nanofibrils make it difficult for them to be incorporated into hydrophobic polymer matrices of common manufacturing plastics to form fiber reinforced composites. TDA is developing technology that can be used to mod ...

  7. Advanced Simulations of Helicon Antennae and Sources

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 20b

    A recent experiment at the DIII-D tokamak has pioneered an innovative and potentially critical actuator for burning plasmas: helicon wave current drive. Steady-state profile maintenance in future burning plasma experiments will require efficient and economically viable sources of off-axis current drive. Promising indications that helicon current drive can fill this need led to the establishment of ...

  8. NEMoSys: A Platform for Autonomous Mesh Refinement and Solution Verification

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: 29d

    Significant amounts of time and resources are spent generating and maintaining meshes for modeling and simulation by engineers and scientists in industry, government, and academia. Beyond mesh generation, one major problem complex multiphysics software, such as those used in nuclear energy software, currently faces is the complex transfer of quantities between meshes during high-performance simula ...

  9. Commercialization of an Ultra-Thin, Bendable, High Efficacy OLED Light Engine

    SBC: OLEDWorks LLC            Topic: 10b

    OLED lighting panels have been available commercially for several years, with relatively slow adoption into commercial and consumer fixtures in the US. This project addresses both channels through the commercialization of an ultra-thin, bendable, high-efficacy OLED light engine in which a panel and driver are engineered together in one low-cost, easy-to-use package. The most significant benefit of ...

  10. A Compact, High Intensity Laser Source for Inverse Compton Scattering

    SBC: Voss Scientific, LLC            Topic: 20a

    A new diagnostic is currently being developed by Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) which will be able to provide direct measurements for the energy and density of “runaway” electrons in tokamak fusion reactors with unprecedented resolution. The multi-MeV, runaways pose a serious risk to tokamak reactors; capable of inflicting catastrophic damage to the armor and vessel walls. A proper diag ...
