  1. A High-Resolution Transverse Diagnostic Based on Fiber Optics

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 01b

    Next generation light sources and advanced accelerator facilities create ultrashort electron bunches with complex transverse distributions. They demand high-resolution beam profile information that is currently limited to approximately 50microns. Structures on the microscale are not resolvable, thus limiting the efficacy of diagnostics. A novel transverse diagnostic based on fiber optics will be ...

  2. An Inexpensive High Brightness Photoinjector using Solid Freeform Fabrication (SFF)

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 38e

    Development of very high duty cycle, high gradient photoinjectors is critical for the next generation of accelerator systems, such as X-ray free-electron lasers (FELs), inverse Compton scattering (ICS) sources, energy recovery linear accelerators (ERLs), injectors for linear colliders, as well as variety of industrial systems for homeland security applications. A key issue for high average power, ...

  3. Compact, Electronic Blood Irradiator

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 59a

    Blood irradiators are commonly used around the world to treat blood to prevent Transfusion-associated Graft-Versus-Host-Disease, a possible side effect to transfusions. Most blood irradiators currently use Cs-137, which is a highly dangerous radioactive substance. The National Research Council has identified as a priority the replacement of such high-activity sources with alternative technologie ...

  4. NDE of Gas Turbine Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 07b

    Thermal barrier coatings are increasingly being used in advanced power plant and industrial gas turbines to protect metal components from the hot gas stream. Their use improves the durability of turbine parts and increases efficiency of operation. However, premature failure remains a critical concern. It is very important to have a non-destructive evaluation technique for quality control and to ...

  5. Spectrally-Assisted Tracking of Moving Vehicles

    SBC: Space Computer Corporation            Topic: 58e

    Long-term continuous moving-target surveillance from airborne electro-optical sensors provides critical information for tactical awareness situations. Tracking civilian vehicles in urban environments is a challenging problem for existing systems, which generally rely on high-resolution video imagery to identify targets by their spatial characteristics. It is difficult for current spatial-based t ...

  6. Concentrator PV Receiver Based on Crystalline Si Cells

    SBC: Svv Technology Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 23c

    The emerging concentration photovoltaic (CPV) technology has a broadly recognized potential in reducing the cost of electric power generation from sunlight and is seen as a key component of the national Solar America Initiative (SAI). However, the low- and mid-concentration CPV has suffered from inherent limitations of traditional optics and a lack of suitable receiver technology since its incept ...

  7. Recovery Act- Hybrid Slat-Array PV System with Thermal Co-Generation

    SBC: Svv Technology Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 08a

    The emerging concentration photovoltaic (CPV) technology has a broadly recognized potential in reducing the cost of electric power generation from sunlight and is seen as a key component of the national Solar America Initiative (SAI). A well established solar thermal technology provides some of the highest possible conversion of sunlight into useful heat. While CPV has suffered from inherent limit ...

  8. Fiber Optic High Temperature Seismic Sensor

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: 21b

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is seeking development of seismic sensors, under its Geothermal Technologies Program, to support the subsurface monitoring of geothermal reservoirs during reservoir stimulation and operation. It is anticipated that these sensors will respond within the frequency range from sub-Hz to multi-kHz, be compatible with packaging for downhole deployment, including the ...

  9. Recovery Act- High-Temperature Material Microstructure Nondestructive Evaluation Compton Imaging Tomography System

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: 04b

    The DOE is seeking new nondestructive evaluation methods to assess the microstructures of materials used in high-temperature applications. These materials could include metallic alloys, carbon-carbon (C/C) composites, and silicon carbide-silicon carbide composites.To solve this problem, Physical Optics Corporation proposes to develop a new one-sided High-Temperature Material Microstructure Nondest ...

  10. Electronics for Large Superconducting Tunnel Junction Detector Arrays for Synchrotron Soft X-ray Research

    SBC: XIA LLC            Topic: 06c

    While the DOE has spent billions of dollars over the past two decades building, staffing and equipping four national synchrotron radiation facilities to support advanced research in all fields by supplying intense brilliant x-ray beams covering a wide range of energies, x-ray detector capabilities have not kept pace with developments in x-ray sources and beam line facilities. Thus, while x-ray fl ...
