  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Low CapEx Clean NH3 Synthesis for Seasonal Energy Storage and Hydrogen Fuel

    SBC: STARFIRE ENERGY INC            Topic: 12c

    Solar electricity price has dropped dramatically, making it the cheapest electricity to add to the grid in many locations. Its variable nature is now becoming a challenge to integrate into the electricity grid. Affordable, scalable, long-term energy storage is required to enable continued low-cost solar electricity deployment. Solar electricity can be used to make fuel, which provides long term en ...

  7. Improved Ceramic Pebbles for Fusion Blankets Topic:23 Subtopic:b

    SBC: Skyhaven Systems, LLC            Topic: 23b

    Skyhaven Systems, LLC proposes to develop a method to improve the overall heat transfer within ceramic pebble beds used in nuclear fusion breeder blankets. The Phase I effort will be used to develop processes for forming non-spherical shaped ceramic pebbles and demonstrating enhanced heat transfer within a packed bed structure. The materials produced in Phase I will be characterized for size, shap ...

  8. Natural Gas Conversion to Acetic Acid

    SBC: Skyhaven Systems, LLC            Topic: 22a

    With the discovery of vast quantities of natural gas available in the U.S. comes the opportunity to convert this gas, traditionally used directly as fuel, into more value added products. Ideally on-site conversion to higher value C2 liquids would alleviate gas transportation issues and maximize the utilization of otherwise waste gas. The proposed Phase I SBIR will demonstrate an advanced catalytic ...

  9. Thin Film Hydrogen Sensor Development, Testing and Integration into Low Cost Wireless Sensing Systems

    SBC: ELEMENT ONE, INC.            Topic: 10c

    There is a growing impetus to increase the use of hydrogen in both advanced power generation and transportation systems. A major technical challenge to solve is improving the safety and effectiveness of systems using hydrogen, and to reduce costly down time due to system shut-downs when hydrogen leaks are detected. There are many tragic examples in industry of undetected hazardous gas discharges l ...

  10. Thulium-Based Ceramic Amplifier for Laser Acceleration

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: 28c

    Laser plasma accelerators (LPA) enabled by the Tm laser driver to be developed by this project offer much reduced size and cost compared to conventional accelerators of the same energy. This would drastically cut the cost of high- energy particle research on collider-based facilities and advanced light sources. Planned conventional accelerators (e.g., for the proposed International Linear Collider ...
