  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Commercial ALD Process for Elimination of Memory Effects in Xe Beta Cells

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 02a

    There is a need to improve the monitoring techniques for radioactive xenon (Xe) in the atmosphere, so that clandestine nuclear test explosions can be confirmed. The equipment used for the detection of radioactive Xe gas incorporates plastic scintillators, which unfortunately trap the Xe gas during operation. The result is a residual Xe activity in the detector that affects subsequent measurements, ...

  5. Metallic Superconducting Bolometers for Rare Particle Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 28e

    One of the major objectives in high energy particle physics and a top priority for the Department of Energy is the elucidation of the nature of dark matter, a discovery which would truly be transformative. In many cases, the ability to advance the research further is limited by the capabilities of the available detectors. Fortunately, recent advances in cryogenic bolometers have significantly impr ...

  6. Augmented Reality Field Support System for Mitigating Workforce Shortages

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 05a

    Electric Grid maintenance and repair requires highly skilled labor to complete necessary critical tasks. Currently, much of the experienced- workforce is rapidly approaching retirement and there is the possibility of diminished appropriate skill level as well as the potential for lost institutional knowledge. In addition, technology is rapidly changing and the grid becoming more complex, making it ...

  7. Hyperfast Silicon Detector Modules for Particle Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 28c

    Advancement in detector technology is continuously ongoing as the needs of high-energy experimental facilities evolve. For example, upgrades are needed at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) as the luminosity is increased. Without advancing fast detector technology many future high energy physics experiments will be limited by the timing capabilities of current particle detector technology. One of the ...

  8. Energy-Saving Process for Extraction of Vanadium

    SBC: Boston Electrometallurgical Corporation            Topic: 06c

    Vanadium is a critical contributor to many different clean energy applications. It is directly used in the most common titanium alloy, Ti-6Al-4V. However, over 80% of the vanadium produced is used in steel production as ferrovanadium master alloy. Vanadium is an essential component to the high-strength low alloy (HSLA) steels and many advanced high strength steels (AHSS) that are being employed fo ...

  9. Gradient Index Nanostructures for Enhanced Scintillation Light Extraction

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

    Scintillators coupled to photomultiplier tubes or silicon photomultipliers are the most common detectors for X- ray/gamma ray detection, and recent years have seen the development of many excellent scintillator materials, used for the detection, measurement and imaging of ionizing radiation. However, due to the high refractive indices of these scintillators, techniques currently used for coupling ...

  10. Economically Scalable High Performance High Voltage Li-ion Cathode

    SBC: CAMX Power LLC            Topic: 13a

    Broad commercialization and adoption of electric drive vehicles (EVs) that meet the market requirements for driving range requires development of electrochemical storage technologies that can deliver high energy density while providing requisite power, cycle life and calendar life at a low cost. Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are the current technology of choice for both consumer electronics and e ...
