  1. Real-Time Adaptive Control Scheme for Superior Plasma Confinement

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    61063 The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) seeks intelligent automated tuning software to improve control and functionality of plasma fusion reactors. Currently installed tokamak control systems typically fail to make use of the full potential of available equipment. These systems often require significant operator intervention to tune control action between discharges. This project will de ...

  2. Non-Linear Optical Devices for High Performance Networking, Computing and Telecommunication Routing and Modulating

    SBC: IONIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    61030 As highly dense, optical-based metropolitan telecommunication networks grow, along with the concurrent need for high-speed data packet switching, lower cost, higher speed, reliable, routing/modulating devices must be found. Reliable, stable optical routing devices will bring the high speed optical network backbone closer to the end user and increase total network speed dramatically. Thi ...

  3. Carbon Isotope Ratiometer

    SBC: Los Gatos Research            Topic: N/A

    60985 Carbon isotope ratio variations in carbon dioxide have been shown to be useful in mapping the flux of biologic versus terrestrial carbon sources. However, most current methods for making this determination rely upon field samples returned to laboratories for analysis, making contamination a serious problem. This project will develop new fieldable instrumentation that can make these d ...

  4. Isobutane Isomerization Membrane Reactor


    60352 The largely unharnessed energy of tidal and ocean currents such as the Gulf Stream is enormous. The absence of an efficient, low cost, environmentally friendly apparatus for power extraction from free water currents has been the major barrier to exploitation of this renewable energy source. This project will develop a new design concept for the effective conversion of ocean curren ...

  5. Hydrogen Recovery Process Using New Membrane Materials


    60245 Increasingly, U.S. refineries are short of hydrogen. While, untapped sources exist, including off-gas and fuel gas streams generated on-site, hydrogen recovery has been problematic. Membranes have been used for this application but membrane failure caused by plasticization and condensation of heavy hydrocarbons has led to a shutdown of a number of plants. In this project a new cl ...

  6. Fast, Low-Noise Readout Chip for Avalanche Photodiode Arrays for Use in Positron-Emission Tomography Imaging

    SBC: NOVA R&D, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60513 Breast cancer is one of the major public health concerns today in the United States. However, the detection of breast cancer through mammographic screening is complicated by various anatomic factors that can hide or simulate tumors, leading to reduced sensitivity and specificity of mammography. Consequently, the rate of false negatives is 5%-6%, which results in loss of lives. The ac ...

  7. Micromachined Silicon, Large Area X-Ray Detector


    60589 The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is seeking new approaches that can advance measurements in nuclear physics. Innovative, large area, highly sensitive radiation detectors, with improved spatial and temporal resolution, would significantly improve upon the experimental technique used by national laboratories and universities in experiments with accelerators and other sources of high e ...

  8. Enhanced Wireless Cellular Packet Transmission Security via Spatial Diversity


    60237 Wireless communications sometimes require not only secure two-way communications but also mutual and continuous authentication of the identity and position of mobile units and cellular network control stations. This is particularly important for treaty verification, for the transport of munitions, fissile material and currency, and for vehicle control and tracking within both governmen ...

  10. Gigabit Data Acquisition Platform for High Energy Physics

    SBC: Tempest Microsystems            Topic: N/A

    60970 Future High Energy Physics experiments, such as the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment at the European Center for Nuclear Physics, will generate data at the rate of tens of Terabytes per second. This project addresses the need for specialized networking components in the data acquisition system. A scalable, gigabit-speed data acquisition platform (GDAP) will be linked to the most recen ...
