  1. Low Cost and Highly Selective Composite Membrane for Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: 20a

    Redox flow batteries (RFB) hold great promise for large scale electrochemical energy storage that will be required for intermittent renewable energy sources like solar or wind. A critical component of the RFB is the membrane which separates anode and cathode compartments. Currently, this is primarily Nafion, but Nafion is not only too expensive, but also lacks in selectivity, permitting leakage be ...

  2. Components for Heating and Fueling of Fusion Plasmas

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 67b

    Next generation fusion facilities will require many megawatts of RF power from dozens of gyrotrons. Conventional DC power systems, built from WWII era components, have provided the typical approach to powering high-power RF vacuum devices for the last 50 years. Typically, they suffer from reliability and availability problems, and are often only 50 70% efficient. Scaling these conventional RF pow ...

  3. Solid State Pulsed Power System for a Stripline Kicker

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 14h

    The DOE is looking for a solid-state pulser suitable for driving a 50 , 2 meter long stripline TEM deflector with 10-15 kV, 10 nanosecond flattop pulses at 100 kHz PRF, with 10-3stability (repeatability), and sub-100-picosecond jitter. This is a critical requirement for particle accelerator labs which need to deflect relativistic charged particle packets emerging from the accelerator at 1 MHz rate ...

  4. Development of a Fiberless Transflectance Noninvasive Glucose Monitor

    SBC: GROVE INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diabetes is a public health problem of epidemic proportions. It adversely affects morbidity, mortality, and overall healthcare costs. It is well known that frequent self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) and good glycemic control can improve both cost and outcome. SMBG is not adequately embraced because current technology is painful, requires blood, and can be ...

  5. Marx Modulator Optimization for Advanced Accelerators

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 65d

    The next generation of particle accelerators will require large numbers of RF cavities, producing field gradients undreamt of a dozen years ago. The next frontier is high energy, short pulse modulators, continuing the technical thrust begun under recent colliders and numerous X-Band accelerator designs. Modulators to drive the klystrons for these new accelerators must meet aggressive requirements ...

  6. Validation of Human Vaginal Tissue Assay for Endocrine Disruptors

    SBC: Mattek Corporation            Topic: NIEHS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Environmental or occupational exposure to a broad variety of chemical agents can alter normal endocrine function. The effects of these endocrine disruptors (ED) can have serious health implications including deleterious effects to reproductive capacity, fetal development, the immune system, and carcinogenesis. Current animal tests are expensive, use a large n ...

  7. High Quantum Effiency, Fast Detectors for the Readout of Scintillators for Gamma-Ray Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB062007

    Gamma-ray spectrometers consisting of inorganic scintillators coupled to optical detectors such as photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) are an important element of the systems that are used to monitor and prevent the spread of special nuclear materials. Two very important requirements for the scintillation detectors used as gamma-ray spectrometers in homeland security monitoring include high sensitivity ...

  8. Novel Glycosylated Delta Opioid Receptor Agonists for Chronic Inflammatory Pain


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Traditionally, Mu opioid receptor (MOR) agonists have not been given as first line treatments for neuropathic pain due to their significant adverse side effects. Biousian Biosystems Inc, (BBI) is developing novel glycosylated peptide-based delta opioid receptor (DOR) targeted drugs for the treatment of chronic pain. Preclinical profiles for DOR agonists indicat ...

  9. Robust High Average Power Modulator

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 14f

    Some DOE modulators have been under development for a decade, but do not yet meet the specifications for voltage, droop, or pulse width. A fundamental design limitation is that the inverters switch the full current 30 times during each pulse, requiring large and expensive switching transistors. A new architecture was invented, consisting of an SCR-controlled power supply, a solid-state modulator ...

  10. Efficient manufacture of extreme surface area Microchannel plate devices functionalized by atomic layer deposition thin films

    SBC: Arradiance LLC            Topic: 61a

    The work proposed in this SBIR proposal is is synergistic with the, DOE funded, basic R & amp;D effort of a consortium of national laboratories, universities, and industry, led by Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago for the development of new, large area, photodetector devices. This project proposes to address the commercialization gap that exists between the proofofprinciple ...
