  1. 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 ...

  2. Ionomer Dispersion Impact On Advanced Fuel Cell and Electrolyzer Performance and Durability

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 09b

    The non-aqueous ionomer dispersion technology has demonstrated great potential to significantly improve the lifetime of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells and electrolyzers. However, further improvements and scale-ups are needed to make this technology commercially viable. The overall objective of this project is to further develop and commercialize non-aqueous ionomer dispersion technology ...

  3. Photonic Fabrics for Optical Tagging

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: 01a

    The US continues to need improvements in capability to deal with the imminent threat of theft of nuclear weapons from a foreign storage facility by a terrorist cell with insider assistance. At the heart of this challenge is the need to develop alternative signature exploitation technologies, taggants, that can be easily observed using sensors capable of detection over large areas and at high resol ...

  4. Strong, round cross-sectioned high current density 2212 wire

    SBC: Solid Material Solutions, LLC            Topic: 26a

    First commercial High Temperature Superconductors (HTS) are all tape shaped (widths > 10 times thickness), because achieving useful current densities required them to be processed into tape form, even though this also makes it more problematic to use them in some important coil types, for example in ramped and ac field modes; compact, high uniformity solenoid coils; and in large coils where low in ...

  5. Novel Pre-lithiation Technology for High Energy Density Electric Vehicle Batteries

    SBC: CAMX Power LLC            Topic: 14a

    Successful commercialization and market adoption of electric drive vehicles (EVs) requires development of fast-charge capable Li-ion storage technologies that can deliver >350Wh/kg, well above what can be achieved with current battery materials. Implementation of next generation cathode and anode materials is needed to further increase specific energy of Li-ion cells. However, without pre-lithiati ...

  6. High Gain MCP ALD Films

    SBC: INCOM, INC.            Topic: 28a

    This project will improve the performance of a key element of particle and light- sensitive detectors. They are used in diverse applications such as high energy physics experiments, medical diagnostic machines and space science missions. This work will improve the manufacturability and sensitivity of devices known as “microchannel plates”, which are sensitive to particles and UV light. Specifi ...

  7. Wave Powered Desalination System

    SBC: RESOLUTE MARINE ENERGY, INC.            Topic: 16a

    Over 1 billion people suffer from the effects of water scarcity and a great majority of those affected live near a coastline in developing countries, on islands, and in remote communities. To satisfy the potable water needs of a rapidly growing world population, experts agree that seawater desalination on a large scale is required. However, while seawater desalination can solve many global water s ...

  8. Innovative Anchoring System for Floating Offshore Wind

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: 15a

    The cost of anchoring offshore floating wind turbines is an obstacle to reducing the cost of energy from offshore floating wind projects and presents an opportunity for savings. Deep water at sites on the West Coast further drives up these costs. Traditional anchoring systems use large heavy weights, casings, or high drag embedment forces to achieve high-pullout forces required for moorings. High ...

  9. Microfluidic Liquid-Liquid Extraction Chip with Integrated Spectroscopic Sensors

    SBC: Spectra Solutions, Inc.            Topic: 29h

    Nuclear power is the most environmentally benign way to produce electricity on a large scale. The successful use of nuclear power, however, is dependent upon adequate and safe processing and disposal of spent nuclear fuels. An important feature of nuclear energy is that spent fuels can be reprocessed to recover fissile and fertile materials and then used as fresh fuel for nuclear power plants. In ...

  10. Novel Process for Realization of High-QE Bialkali Photocathodes

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 01b

    Nuclear detection and spectroscopy is used to detect and characterize global nuclear security threats and prevent spread of materials, technology, and expertise related to weapons of mass destruction. High performance scintillation detectors are the backbone of such tools. Recent advances in scintillators have demonstrated superior spectroscopic qualities, rivaling those of the semiconductor detec ...
