  1. Hydrogen Recovery and Carbon Dioxide Separation In Steam Methane Reformers

    SBC: Membrane Technology And Research, Inc. (mtr)            Topic: 45d

    75004B If hydrogen is to be used as an environmentally-friendly fuel, hydrogen production costs must be lowered and carbon dioxide, a by-product of hydrogen production, must be separated for sequestration. This project will develop a membrane process to recover hydrogen and separate carbon dioxide from steam-methane-reformer pressure-swing-absorption plants. The process should increase hydrogen ...

  2. High-Performance Secure Database Access Technologies for HEP Grids

    SBC: Piocon Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 39b

    79364B U.S. high energy physicists demand efficient performance of grid computing applications in Large Hadron Collider physics research, where remote participation is vital to their success. To extract rare signals of new physics, grid computing applications require access to large amounts of data in relational databases. However, the database access technologies available for grid computing ...

  3. An X-band, Traveling Wave, Deflection Mode Cavity for Ultra-Fast Beam Manipulation and Diagnosis

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 36b

    79629B Cutting-edge applications in high energy electron beam-based physics, such as linear colliders, x-ray free-electron lasers, inverse compton scattering sources, and plasma wakefield accelerators, require beams with sub-picosecond pulses. These beams must be precisely diagnosed to be used for such advanced applications. While methods for the production of such beams are well-developed, the ...

  4. Improved Nb For Superconducting RF Cavities

    SBC: Shear Form Inc            Topic: 45a

    79394B Superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavities, such as those fabricated at Jefferson Laboratory and used in charged particle linear accelerators, are formed by deep drawing. In this process, a non-uniform or poorly textured microstructure in the starting sheet can cause poor deformation behavior and surface roughness in the formed part. Poor deep drawing behavior is manifested by excess ...

  5. Field Emission Thermoelectric Coolers

    SBC: UHV TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 26c

    79089B It is estimated that almost 20% of the energy consumed in an average building is used by cooling systems such as air conditioning, refrigerator and freezer. Thus, cooling costs almost $50 billion in electricity bills to American home owners and industry. Any improvement in the efficiency of these cooling systems (heat pumps) will not only reduce energy consumption but also pay dividends ...

  6. Reliable High Performance Carbon Nanotube and LaB6 Nanowire Field Emission Cathodes for STEM

    SBC: XINTEK, INC.            Topic: 23b

    79658B The reliable fabrication of high performance point electron sources is required for scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) systems with brightness greater than 109 Amp/cm2/steradian at an extraction voltage of 100 kV. Conventional point sources require a high vacuum for stable operation, and tip failure occurs by vacuum arcing and unstable emission due to atom migration. This p ...

  7. A Phase I Program to the Low Temperature Performance of Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    79758B Safety concerns over the susceptibility of large Li-ion cells to thermal runaway during overcharge are one of the problems preventing the commercialization of these cells. This problem will be addressed by developing new materials that will be substituted for the cell component believed to be involved in the runaway process. In particular, electrolyte systems that form less a resistive i ...
