  1. Recovery Act- Compact Polymeric Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Porogen Corporation            Topic: 10a

    Most heat exchangers utilized in process industries are made from metals. These heat exchangers are bulky, heavy, subject to corrosion and microbiological fouling which leads to reduction in performance and increase in cost. The plastic heat exchangers can alleviate some of these problems. However, commercial plastic heat exchangers are less efficient and have a limited operating temperature range ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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, ...

  4. 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 ...

  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. Structured Emission Thermometry Sensor for Burner Control

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 16a

    Industrial processes such as glass production burn huge quantities of natural gas. Burner settings are often set with large error margins to avoid producing pollution. They are also frequently set

  7. Recovery Act- Real-time Remote Detection of HR-VOC Content in Flares

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 05b

    The large quantities of natural gas produced in the oil refining process pose a serious explosion hazard, and are disposed of by open air burning, commonly referred to as flaring. Incomplete combustion of the natural gas results in the release of hazardous organic compounds, which pose serious risks to the environment and to public health. Real-time monitoring and control of flare combustion effic ...

  8. A Modified Internal Tin Tube Nb3Sn Conductor for Higher Non-Copper Critical Current Density

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: 36a

    Future magnets for High Energy Physics (HEP) require superconductors with improved high critical current carrying capacity at high magnetic fields, decreased effective filament sizes and lower cost. An improved method of fabricating such superconductors is being investigated using the Internal Tin Tube (ITT) Process that will improve the critical current density achievable. In Phase I, Sn-Ta all ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
