  1. Computational Tool for Modeling and Design of Rugged GaAs- based Polarized Electron Sources

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 30d

    High-current, high-brightness, spin-polarized electron beams are required for next generation electron-ion colliders (EIC). Proposed cathode designs are based on negative electron affinity (NEA) GaAs. A major limitation of these cathodes is their operational lifetime due to their susceptibility to damages in electron guns. Recent experiments done in Cornell University have demonstrated that a NEA ...

  2. Oxygen Selective Metal Organic Framework Adsorbents for High Efficiency Air Separation

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 23b

    While cryogenic ASU is the technology of choice to supply oxygen to large plants, they are very expensive and includes complex hardware that prevent to cost-effective scale down and use in small installations. At small scale, pressure swing adsorption (PSA) is widely used. PSA is based on the selective reversible adsorption of nitrogen (but not oxygen) onto molecular sieve sorbents. The convention ...

  3. Atom-Network Telecom Exchange

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: 06a

    Wavelength conversion is a critical enabling subsystem for quantum networks. The proposed quantum wavelength convertor is a device for converting single-photons from wavelengths compatible with atom-based quantum networking systems to wavelengths for low-attenuation transmission in optical fiber. In conventional networks, these devices impart flexibility between optical channels and maximize the c ...

  4. A Robust, Ground-Based Microwave Radiometer for Atmospheric Water vapor and Liquid Water Measurement

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: 25b

    A lack of localized, current, and accurate information on temperature, water vapor, and liquid water from the lowest level of the atmosphere, i.e. the atmospheric boundary layer, is one of the most pressing problems of current meteorology and atmospheric science. This omission limits our understanding of the initiation of cloud droplets, ice crystals, and precipitation. More data on water vapor, t ...

  5. Advanced Magnetic Air Separation Technology

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: 22b

    Coal is a plentiful natural resource in the U.S. but has been underused due to pollution resulting from conventional combustion. Gasification, as opposed to conventional combustion, is the most thermally efficient and cleanest way to convert the energy content of coal into electricity, hydrogen, clean fuels, and value-added chemicals. Gasification plants can run more efficiently and be configured ...

  6. A Browser Based Toolkit for Improved Particle Accelerator Controls

    SBC: RadiaSoft LLC            Topic: 30f

    Modern particle accelerator facilities generate large amounts of data and face increasing demands on their operational performance. These datasets can be difficult to visualize and contain complex relationships that are challenging to understand. Additionally, as the demand on accelerator operations increases so does the need for automated tuning algorithms and control to maximize uptime with redu ...

  7. High-Accuracy Angle Generator For Angular Calibrations To Support Optical Metrology Laboratories and Light Source Facilities.

    SBC: VERMONT PHOTONICS TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: 12a

    Improving our current ability to measure the shape of x-ray focusing mirrors is necessary to advance our knowledge of the atomic structure of many types of materials, especially for the latest diffraction-limited light sources within the DOE. X-ray studies at DOE national laboratories of the atomic structure of new materials, biological molecules, etc. are limited by the quality of the x-ray spot ...

  8. High-Temperature Flow Sensor for Molten Salt Reactors

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 20e

    MSR developers have identified a need for instruments that can monitor conditions of molten salt in test beds during the research and development stage, as well as for long-term application in both the primary (fuel) and secondary (coolant/heat transfer fluid) loops. Specifically, it has been noted that representative materials experiments require flowing salt, so instruments to measure salt flow ...

  9. Compositionally Gradient Garnet/PVDF-HFP Hybrid Membranes for Li-Metal Batteries

    SBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 19a

    Development of Li-ion conducting membranes capable of supporting Li-metal anode to enable high- performance Li-metal batteries (LiMB) is a priority for the Department of Energy (DOE). State-of- the-art membranes used for Li-ion batteries (LiB) are not suitable for LiMB and have a number of disadvantages including poor cycling performance, low Li-ion conductivity, and electrochemical stability with ...

  10. Low-cost, Time-resolved Chemical Characterization of Atmospheric Aerosols

    SBC: Aerosol Devices Inc.            Topic: 23b

    The composition of atmospheric particulate matter (“aerosols”) strongly influences health and environmental impacts, but there exist few time-resolved, long-term records of particle-phase chemical composition due to lack of appropriate monitoring tools. Needed is an instrument that is robust, easy-to-operate, with automated calibrations and data reduction, to provide operationally-inexpensive ...
