Scaleup of a Combined Spray Pyrolysis and Fluidized-bed Reactor Method for the Production of High Performing Layered Nickel- rich Cathode Materials as a Continuous ProcessSBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC. Topic: 14a
To increase the utilization of electric vehicles, the US Department of Energy is seeking to reduce the cost of electric vehicle batteries to less than $125/kWh by 2022. To achieve this goal, the costs of cathode materials, which account for approximately 30% of the cost of vehicle batteries, must be reduced significantly. To address the challenge of lowering the costs of advanced lithium battery c ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of Energy
Novel Carbon Fiber Synthesis Process Based on Joule HeatingSBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: 11c
Current methods for manufacturing carbon fiber rely on high temperature ovens for the stabilization/oxidation and carbonization steps, which tend to be slow and energy intensive. As such, carbon fiber composites are expensive then steel, which limits their use in costsensitive, highvolume industrial applications such as automobiles, oil and gas, and infrastructure. To reduce energy consumption and ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of Energy
A Comprehensive Web Infrastructure for Standardizing, Storing, and Launching Density Functional Calculations of Materials and Chemical CompoundsSBC: Citrine Informatics, Inc. Topic: 9a
Density functional theory is used by many researchers funded by the Department of Energy as a method for predicting the behavior of chemicals and materials used in energy applications. However, results of these calculations are often not standardized and, even when they are, expert-level understand of the methods is needed in order to properly perform a simulation. The energy research community a ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of Energy
Robust Molecular Predictive Methods for Novel Polymer Discovery and ApplicationsSBC: Sheeta Global Tech Corp. Topic: 08b
This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program aims at development and demonstration of an integrated theoretically/experimentally combinatorial method for the accurate prediction of rheological behaviors of special polymer solutions. In-depth understandings of dynamic responses of the polymer solutions under external shear are essential for development of the “smart” polymer-based add ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of Energy
CORC; Cable Based High Field Hybrid Magnets for Future CollidersSBC: ADVANCED CONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: 26b
"The next generation of very high field accelerator magnets (20 T or more) are expected to be made with high-temperature superconductors (HTS) along with conventional low-temperature superconductors (LTS) to reduce cost. The operation and protection of these magnets becomes very challenging particularly if the HTS coils are made with the tapes and operate at a much lower current than the LTS coils ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of Energy
Development of a superconducting RF flipperSBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: 08a
A recent report by the Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee entitled “Challenges at the Frontiers of Matter and Energy” pointed to the need to better understand hierarchical and heterogeneous materials, often at the mesoscopic scale. Such structures can be studied by x-ray and neutron scattering techniques, but they do not generally yield narrow signals in momentum or energy space. The nat ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of Energy
Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane WindowsSBC: NANOSD, INC. Topic: DEFOA0001429
NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of EnergyARPA-E
