  1. Lighting with No Watt Left Behind

    SBC: NEMOMETRICS CORP.            Topic: 17c

    Lighting a very large fraction of the electrical energy consumed in industrial and commercial facilities. Much of this energy is wasted because rooms and areas are unoccupied or underoccupied or are occupied for only a fraction of the day. Lighting management systems to date are expensive, complex, require multiple sensors, can involve elaborate networking and can rely on movement of occupants r ...

  2. Fiber Optic High Temperature Seismic Sensor

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: 21b

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is seeking development of seismic sensors, under its Geothermal Technologies Program, to support the subsurface monitoring of geothermal reservoirs during reservoir stimulation and operation. It is anticipated that these sensors will respond within the frequency range from sub-Hz to multi-kHz, be compatible with packaging for downhole deployment, including the ...

  3. Recovery Act- High-Temperature Material Microstructure Nondestructive Evaluation Compton Imaging Tomography System

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: 04b

    The DOE is seeking new nondestructive evaluation methods to assess the microstructures of materials used in high-temperature applications. These materials could include metallic alloys, carbon-carbon (C/C) composites, and silicon carbide-silicon carbide composites.To solve this problem, Physical Optics Corporation proposes to develop a new one-sided High-Temperature Material Microstructure Nondest ...

  4. Development of a Fieldable Soil Carbon Monitor

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 43a

    Proper management of soils and vegetation can increase their uptake of CO2 and therefore allow them to become more effective

  5. Networked Sensors for Sequestration MVA

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 25c

    Geologic carbon sequestration (GCS) is advancing as a preferred means of mitigating CO2 emissions from fossil-fueled plants. To verify that GCS performs its intended function of reducing greenhouse gases, monitoring sequestered CO2 is essential. Novel cost-effective tools are needed for reliable longterm measurement to detect, locate, and quantify sources of any escaping CO2 or of surrogate leak ...

  6. Highly Compact CO2 Sensor for Balloon Deployment

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 43b

    Assessment of CO2 exchange between the atmosphere and the biosphere remains one of the largest uncertainties in predicting carbon sequestration by vegetative uptake on a global basis. Distinguishing between photosynthetic uptake and respiratory emission of CO2 is difficult, due to the small differences between two large parameters, but crucial for determining net ecosystem exchange for CO2 betwee ...

  7. Implantation, Activation, Characterization and Prevention/Mitigation of Internal Short Circuits in Lithium-Ion Cells

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 15a

    For lithium-ion battery-based HEVs and PHEVs to become commercially viable, occurrences of rare but violent spontaneous field failures of lithium-ion cells must be prevented. We are developing a methodology to reliably and reproducibly implant and activate internal short circuits of the type believed to be responsible for field failure incidents in lithium-ion cells. This methodology is being us ...

  8. A Software Toolbox for Systematic Evaluation of Seismometer-Digitizer System Responses

    SBC: Weston Geophysical Corp.            Topic: 61b

    Measurement of the absolute amplitudes of a seismic signal requires accurate knowledge of the seismometer-digitizer response. In some cases, particularly for historic data or data from denied regions, the response may be unknown or incorrectly known. Under the DOE SBIR/STTR FY 2009 Phase I program (Grant DE-FG02-09ER85548) Weston Geophysical Corp., in partnership with Dr. Robert Herrmann (St. Lou ...

  9. Electronics for Large Superconducting Tunnel Junction Detector Arrays for Synchrotron Soft X-ray Research

    SBC: XIA LLC            Topic: 06c

    While the DOE has spent billions of dollars over the past two decades building, staffing and equipping four national synchrotron radiation facilities to support advanced research in all fields by supplying intense brilliant x-ray beams covering a wide range of energies, x-ray detector capabilities have not kept pace with developments in x-ray sources and beam line facilities. Thus, while x-ray fl ...

  10. Unitized Design for Home Refueling Appliance for Hydrogen Generation to 5000 psi

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 22b

    U.S. automakers have invested significant resources in the research and development of hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles. However, to enable their widespread use, an additional major investment will be required to construct an infrastructure for hydrogen production and delivery to fueling stations. In order to facilitate this transition, the DOE has recommended that high-pressure hydrogen generation fo ...
