  1. Advanced Design of Quasi-Optical Launchers for Fusion Plasma Heating

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    60176 Current high power gyrotron tubes, used for heating fusion plasmas, produce power in high order TE modes, which are converted to a Gaussian like mode through use of an internal mode converter and launcher. However, these converter systems typically achieve only 85-90% efficiency for conversion of cavity output power to a usable Gaussian mode, leading to significant efficiency degra ...

  2. Development of a Three-Dimensional, Finite Element Charged Particle Code with Adaptive Meshing

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    60459 The current generation of charged particle codes are unable to model practical three dimensional problems, such as those in high energy physics research, because of the large number of nodes required in the analysis. Without this design capability, it is not possible to develop many new, innovative devices that could dramatically advance the state-of-the-art in charged particle electro ...

  3. Ceramic Membrane Process for Upgrading Vacuum Residual Oil

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    60028 The world supply of light crudes and those having only minor concentrations of sulfur and contaminant metals is quickly decreasing, and the refining of heavier crudes produces ¿bottom of the barrel¿ residual oils. These oils are unsuitable for conventional processing techniques such as catalytic cracking and therefore require an alternative process for upgrading. This project will de ...

  4. Novel Membrane Reactor for Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    60817 In the past few decades, Fischer-Tropsch technology has emerged in the United States as a leading technology for natural gas processing. However, because roughly 60 percent of proven natural gas reserves in the world are categorized as remote or stranded gas, there is need for Fischer-Tropsch technology that can economically access remote natural gas reserves. This project will d ...

  5. Vacuum Pump Power Supply with Controller Integrated Circuit

    SBC: Champion Research            Topic: N/A

    60768 Present technology vacuum pump power supplies do not provide the features needed for the Next Linear Collider (NLC). Most are located some distance from the pumps themselves, requiring high voltage distribution cables that can break down electrically due to radiation induced damage and cause fires. Those power supplies that do mount on pumps do not have serial control or adequately pr ...

  6. Development of a Sustained Ocean Current-Driven Electric Power Generating System

    SBC: DEHLSEN ASSOCIATES, LLC            Topic: N/A

    60119 Swiftly flowing ocean currents represent a significant untapped renewable energy resource for the United States. However, ocean current energy systems have not been economically feasible due to: (1) the difficulty of maintaining system stability while concurrently being able to quickly relocate the system to maximize power generation efficiency as current speeds change at varying d ...

  7. Conversion of Wet Biomass to Hydrogen by Unmixed Reforming

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Wet biomass is a potentially valuable energy resource but it cannot be shipped economically. If wet biomass could be converted to hydrogen, the hydrogen could be used in fuel cells to provide electricity and space heating to farms and other rural facilities. However, the only presently available technology for this conversion, steam reforming, is not economical for small installations. This pro ...

  8. Ultra Low Cost, Long Life, driver TWTA's for Future Accelerator Injection Systems

    SBC: ELCON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60224 A family of traveling wave tubes (TWT), capable of outliving a 20-year accelerator, are being mated to power supplies to produce drive power for klystrons for the Next Linear Collider, at about one-tenth the cost of available commercial amplifiers. This project will develop S, X, and C-band TWTs with full specification performance. Low current, long-life cathodes will be evaluated fo ...

  9. Multivariate State Estimation Technique (MSET) Modeling for Assured Measurement Integrity

    SBC: EXPERT MICROSYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    60387 Assuring the safe, reliable, and efficient operation of a nuclear power plant requires that accurate, online measurement information be available to operators. In this project, an innovative process modeling technique will be used to detect sensor and equipment failures with higher accuracy and faster response time than previously available methods, thereby improving efficiency, reduc ...

  10. 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 ...
