Novel isotope sensor for spatially-resolved analysis of nutrient exchange in the rhizosphere Topic: 22.a. Technologies for Characterizing the Rhizosphere: Plant-Microbe-Mineral InteractionsSBC: 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 ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy
Novel Ionomer and Polymer-Electrolyte Membrane Development for Solar-Energy-Driven Carbon Dioxide ConversionSBC: TWELVE BENEFIT CORPORATION Topic: 19b
Solar fuels production is necessary for the future of the global economy New highly conductive and stable polymer-electrolytes with low light absorption are required for efficient and cost- effective solar fuels generation Opus 12 will work with Prof Chulsung Bae at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) to further develop the existing polymer-electrolyte chemistry to meet the demands of this chal ...STTR Phase I 2020 Department of Energy
Neutron optical device to measure mesoscopic space and time correlations and eliminate quasi-elastic scattering from SANSSBC: 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 I 2017 Department of Energy
SBC: Solexant Corp. Topic: 10c
A solution is needed for the inexpensive generation of electricity from solar irradiation, which will be cost competitive with fossil fuel technologies without the need for government subsidies. This project will fabricate and characterize inorganic nanoparticle-based solar cells that: (1) can be manufactured with low cost processing techniques; and (2) will offer greater absorption across the s ...STTR Phase I 2007 Department of Energy
SBC: NamesforLife, LLC Topic: 48d
Within the Genomes-to-Life Roadmap, there is a lack of standardized semantics to accurately describe data objects and persistently express knowledge change over time. As research methods and biological concepts evolve, certainty about the correct interpretation of prior data and published results decreases, because both become overloaded with synonymous and polysemous terms.

SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: 18c
Although thermal and cold neutron scattering is widely used and is critical for success in many areas of materials science and engineering, relatively low neutron fluxes severely limit applications of not only laboratory neutrons generators, but also large national neutron facilities State-of-the-art thermal and cold neutron sources are large expensive national facilities, which serve diverse comm ...STTR Phase I 2020 Department of Energy
Materials Degradation Analysis and Development to Enable Ultra Low Cost, Web-Processed White P-OLED for SSLSBC: Add-vision, Inc. Topic: 12b
In previous research, a specialty solid-state lighting (SSL) device had been developed. A doped Polymer Light-Emitting Diode (POLED) device structure is used, which enables devices to be printed with low capital equipment and operating costs. Although the devices are efficient, thin, flexible, and robust, additional performance improvements would broaden the range of applications to interior bui ...STTR Phase I 2007 Department of Energy
SBC: CATALYTIC AND REDOX SOLUTIONS LLC Topic: 22a
Over 468 billion cubic feet of natural gas was flared in the United State in 2018. This emitted nearly 25 million tons of CO2 while wasting an important domestic energy resource. This “stranded” natural gas, co-produced by shale oil wells, was flared because it is not cost-effective to transport due to low energy density. Although it would be highly desirable to convert this currently flared n ...STTR Phase II 2020 Department of Energy
SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC. Topic: 16a
In spite of the promise of terahertz frequency range, the maturity of terahertz technologies, such as sources or detectors, remains relatively weak In particular, ultrafast optoelectronic switches are a key component to both sources and detectors, but current versions of them require too much power to be commercially viable, particularly for applications involving detector arrays The overall objec ...STTR Phase I 2020 Department of Energy
Low-Cost Hybrid Plasmonic and Photonic "Campanile" Near-Field Probes by Nanoimprint LithographySBC: 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 ...STTR Phase II 2018 Department of Energy
