  1. High-Throughput Sequencing of Bacterial Artificial Chromosomes and Genomic DNA

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

    60647 The shotgun DNA sequencing method is in wide use for the acquisition of draft data, but it is not followed by equally productive finishing technology. High throughput technology is needed to transform the art of finishing genome projects into a streamlined production operation. This project will develop advanced DNA sequencing reagents and protocols that are 100 to 1,000 times more e ...

  2. The Closed-Loop, Amplifier-Regulated Driver, a High-Accuracy, Low-Cost Modulator for Heavy Ion Fusion Accelerators

    SBC: FIRST POINT SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60247 An inexpensive, highly regulated modulator will be required for the successful development of a heavy ion inertial fusion system. This project will demonstrate a closed-loop, amplifier-regulated driver as an induction accelerator modulator at parameters of interest to the heavy ion fusion program. Phase I demonstrated the efficacy of the closed-loop amplifier regulated driver, det ...

  3. Advanced Computtation Environment for Incompressible Flows with Free Surface, MHD and Turbulence Effects in Complex Geometries

    SBC: HYPERCOMP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60419 This project will develop a three dimensional, adaptive, unstructured grid treatment of free surface magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow of conducting liquids, as envisioned in future fusion systems. In particular, computational fluid dynamic (CFD) tools, capable of predicting the flow behavior of conducting liquids in complex geometry with free surfaces in the presence of an intense heat ...

  4. Intelligent Unmanned Monitoring of Remediated Sites

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

    61066 Hazardous waste characterization, remediation, and monitoring are key missions for DOE. Conventional approaches involve cumbersome sample collection and laboratory analysis. This is time intensive and very costly, in part because of the need for experts. Crucial long-term, continuous monitoring of sites to insure that wastes do not migrate is not currently feasible. This project will ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
