SBC: AEROSOL DEVICES INC Topic: 23b
Currently the chemical composition of atmospheric particulate matter is measured either by off-line analyses of time-integrated filter samples, or by in-situ instruments requiring near-constant operator oversight. These measurement approaches result in sparse or limited data coverage. Despite the critical role of composition on the health and environmental impacts of particulate matter, there exis ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
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
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: 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: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc. Topic: 25
There is a continuing need for high power circulators to protect the next generation of high power RF sources from waveguide reflections that can destroy the device. Currently, the power level of circulators is limited by the materials, specifically ferrites that provide the required non-reciprocal operation. New approaches are required that use materials capable of very high power operation. Stat ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of Energy
SBC: RADIATION MONITORING DEVICES, INC. Topic: 25c
The power output of the high power lasers used in physics research is limited by the materials available for making the gain media in the laser. Future increases in power will require new and better materials. Operation at high power creates great thermal stresses that can lead to effects such as birefringence, thermal lensing or even physical fracture damage to the host itself. Effective cooling ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
SBC: RADIABEAM SYSTEMS, LLC Topic: 25
Currently, the most promising types of radiotherapy is proton or carbon therapy, as they have demonstrated significant improvements in clinical efficiency and reduced toxicity profiles. Unfortunately, the high cost of treatments using both proton and carbon beams is the limiting factor preventing hadron therapy from becoming the standard of care for a wider range of cancers. Designing a linear acc ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of Energy
SBC: GINER INC Topic: 12c
Despite incremental improvements in the technology, polyfluorosulfonic acid (PFSA) membranes are still not an ideal fuel cell membrane material and their drawbacks (e.g., high cost and low mechanical strength at high temperature) require development of alternative polymer electrolyte membranes (PEMs) for successful adoption of fuel cells as reliable and inexpensive energy conversion devices. The g ...STTR Phase I 2016 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
SBC: RADIATION MONITORING DEVICES, INC. Topic: 03a
The development of radiation detection materials would benefit with greater access to computational models that relate physical traits seen in manufacture with complex energy transitions occurring in the material that control operating performance. However, the HPC requirements behind these models remain beyond the reach of most businesses involved in this small yet vital field impacting National ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
