The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. From data to models and analytics: An integrated scientific computing platform to accelerate environmental research

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 01c

    Advances in sensor-based field observations, multi-scale models, and computational technologies in the Environmental Systems Science (ESS) provide new opportunities for applied research and development in academia and industry- These same advances are producing heterogeneous and disparate data of growing size, and increasingly varying types and formats- As a result, analysis now requires multiple ...

  2. Next-Generation Analysis and Visualization Platform for Manufacturing and Engineering Workflows

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 03b

    The Department Of Energy (DOE) Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program has spearheaded the development of HPC tools for analysis and visualization- In their current state, they remain principally underutilized by industry because they are complicated and fail to support, naturally, advanced manufacturing and engineering HPC workflows and must be hardened and made more accessible to i ...

  3. Radiation-tolerant, high-density GaInP SPAD arrays

    SBC: Lightspin Technologies Inc            Topic: 30a

    High efficiency photon detection is a critical component of many nuclear physics detectors- These photon detectors need to exhibit high sensitivity (detect single photons) with wide dynamic range (>1E5 dynamic range), and low noise (< 100 kcps/mm2 at end of life)- Recently, silicon single photon avalanche diode (SPAD) arrays also known as silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) have been developed to pro ...

  4. Monolithic integration of high-efficiency UV photocathodes on large-area microchannel plates for high spatial and temporal resolution particle detection

    SBC: LIGHTWAVE PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 30a

    Reliable, high-sensitivity and high-resolution photon detectors, which can alleviate major limitations imposed by photomultiplier tubes (PMTs), for future high energy physics (HEP) and nuclear physics (NP) experiments, are of great interest to DOE- Other fields that could greatly benefit from these detectors include Cherenkov telescopes in astrophysics, positron emission tomography (PET) in medica ...

  5. New Class of Encapsulants for Blue LEDs

    SBC: Lumisyn LLC            Topic: 14a

    One of the main roadblocks to higher efficiencies, longer lifetimes, and improved brightness for LED light sources is the usage of current silicone-based encapsulant materials which have low thermal conductivities and refractive indices- The former property results in larger than desired temperatures for the encapsulant layer, leading to loss of phosphor efficiency and reduced LED module lifetimes ...

  6. Dissimilar Metal Bonding of Corrosion-Resistant Cladding to Structural Materials in Next Generation Nuclear Reactors


    As the United States aging fleet of nuclear reactors approach the end other their lifetimes, a new generation of nuclear reactors (Generation IV) are being developed to ensure national energy security without emissions or pollutants as a byproduct- However, there are many technological hurdles associated with the extreme corrosive environments required by many of the reactor designs- This presents ...

    SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of Energy


    For the foreseeable future, the Nation’s energy demand will continue to come largely from indigenous fossil energy resources and hydrocarbon fuels- Specifically waste coal plus other opportunity fuels need to be utilized as a feedstock to eliminate a waste stream and optimized to maximize energy yield and cleanly minimize pollutant emissions- Modular equipment is needed for installation in coal ...

  10. Improving DXRT Efficiency for Coal Beneficiation with Advanced Air Jets

    SBC: Mineral Separation Technologies Inc.            Topic: 20d

    Traditional heavy-media methods of coal beneficiation are expensive and have inherent environmental liabilities- X-ray separation of coal is a promising new technology that cuts the cost from mine to market with no environmental liabilities- The efficiency of x-ray separation of coal should be improved by employing air valves with faster response times, but no data exists to quantify that improvem ...
