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.

  6. Boron Nitride Nanotube Vibration Damping for SRF Structures

    SBC: BNNT, LLC            Topic: 29c

    Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) structures used for particle accelerators typically operate between 4 – 2 K, i-e- cryogenic temperatures, and are sensitive to microphonics that create length oscillations in the accelerating structures- To keep the SRF cavities on resonance under the influence of distortions in the SRF cavities caused by microphonics, RF power above what is required for acc ...

  10. New Fluorinated Ionomers for Enhanced Oxygen Transport in Fuel Cell Cathodes

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 17a

    Cathodes in proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) that run on hydrogen are coated with a thin layer of conductive ionomer- The ionomer facilitates proton conduction to the costly platinum group metal (PGM) catalyst in the cathode, where oxygen reduction and reaction to form water occurs- Higher catalyst efficiency and lower catalyst loadings are desirable for industry PEMFC cost reductions- ...
