  1. User Location-Specific Data for Smarter Smart Grids

    SBC: ERIK PAGE & ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 06b

    Society at large and DOE in particular have an interest in the continued development and refinement of a smart grid infrastructure that more efficiently and reliably matches electrical resources to demands. While technological advances in recent years have improved the smart grid, these advances have been limited by a lack of granularity of data (e.g. environmental conditions at multiple locations ...

  2. Novel isotope sensor for spatially-resolved analysis of nutrient exchange in the rhizosphere Topic: 22.a. Technologies for Characterizing the Rhizosphere: Plant-Microbe-Mineral Interactions

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Ensuring adequate agricultural productivity in the face of an increasing human population is a major concern with implications for both production of bioenergy products (Jones and Hinsinger, 2008) and global food security. Increasing agricultural productivity requires a stronger understanding of soil biogeochemical processes that impact plant nutrient availability. We propose development of an inn ...

  3. Single-shot Picosecond Temporal Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 24a

    Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is one of the primary tools for biological and materials characterization; however, there is an overarching need to push TEM temporal resolution into a ps-range to study physical processes on their fundamental spatial and temporal scales. With state-of-the-art TEM, however, it is not possible to capture a single image with a temporal resolution better than 10 ...

  4. 26(a): High Duty Cycle Inverse Free Electron Laser

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 26a

    Laser based advanced accelerators can achieve very high accelerating gradients, but their duty cycle is limited by the laser power availability and media recovery time. Inverse Free Electron Laser (IFEL) is a vacuum farfield laser accelerator scheme which does not rely on a medium (plasma) or a structure (metal or electric) and therefore is potentially capable of accelerating charged particles ver ...

  5. Single-shot Picosecond Temporal Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 07a

    Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is one of the primary tools for biological and materials characterization and has many important research applications. There is an overarching need to improve the temporal resolution of TEMs. State-­‐of-­‐the-­‐art single shot TEM only achieve 10 nanoseconds temporal resolution. Technical Approach UCLA and RadiaBeam Tec ...

  6. Nano-Patterned Cathode Surfaces for High Efficiency Photoinjectors

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 05a

    Metal photoinjector cathode development has shown recent promise with nano-patterning technology. However, in order to be competitive with semi-conductor cathodes, a further enhancement in efficiency is needed. TECHNICAL APPROACH Specific nano-patterning of sub-wavelength features to produce antennae provides coupling of incoming laser light with the surface of the metal cathode. Bowtie nano-anten ...

  7. Low-Cost Hybrid Plasmonic and Photonic "Campanile" Near-Field Probes by Nanoimprint Lithography

    SBC: 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 ...

  8. Method for Separation of Coal Conversion Products from Sorbents/Oxygen Carriers

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 20e

    This Phase II Small Business Innovation Research project targets the development of a technology for segregating fuelbased contaminants (char and ash) from oxygen carrier material in the context of chemical looping combustion application. In chemical looping, the wellmixed solids that flow from the fuel reactor consisting of char, ash, and oxygen carrier particles cannot be completely separated in ...

  9. Algal Bioflocculation for SolidLiquid Separation

    SBC: Microbio Engineering, Inc            Topic: 12c

    A key requirement for microalgae biofuels production is a very low cost harvesting technology. Commercially available solidliquid separation technologies applicable to microalgae, such as chemical coagulation, membrane separations and centrifugation, are too costly for biofuels production or other lowcost microalgae processes, such as wastewater treatment. A low cost harvesting process is bio floc ...

  10. Demonstration of the technological capability for production of neutron-focusing nickel mirrors

    SBC: ELECTROFORMED NICKEL, INC.            Topic: 15a

    Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. These methods require large installations at national laboratories, such as Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and other facilities constructed or planned in the US and around the world. These facilities serve a large and diverse community ...
