  1. Scaled up Fabrication and Precision Metrology of the Corrugated Cylindrical Waveguides

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 08a

    Particle accelerators are used for a variety of applications, from understanding the building blocks of our universe to improving the materials we use every day. Unfortunately, generating high energy particle beams is very costly and new methods of beam acceleration are needed. Wakefield accelerators represent one potential path for low-cost accelerators, but many questions surrounding how to prac ...

  2. An RF Beam Sweeper for Purifying In-Flight Produced Rare Isotope Beams

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 30e

    The Argonne Tandem Linac Accelerator System (ATLAS) is the only national user facility for low-energy stable heavy ion beams. Beams of radioactive nuclei produced by the in-flight method provide access to more than 100 short-lived isotopes. After traversing the production target, the primary beam is energy degraded and acquires a long low-intensity energy tail from the multiple- scattering process ...

  3. Direct Fabrication of Complex Radial Collimators

    SBC: POLARONYX, INC.            Topic: 17a

    Additive manufacturing (AM), esp. laser AM, becomes a powerful tool to replace conventional methods such as casting and hot spray, due to its cost effectiveness and capability of making complex structure and composition. However, direct fabrication of high temperature thin walls and multi-material radial collimators (such as Boron and Al) is still a challenging field, mainly due to limited underst ...

  4. HTS Solenoid for Neutron Scattering

    SBC: Particle Beam Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    US neutron scattering facilities are currently limited to 16 T, which is insufficient to study the structure and dynamics of ultra-high magnetic field states of quantum matter and materials processed in high magnetic fields. To remedy this, proposals have been requested for very high field magnets suitable for neutron-scattering applications. Particle Beam Lasers, Inc. (PBL) and the Superconductin ...

  5. Efficient Fragment Separator for High Energy Secondary Radioactive Beams

    SBC: RadiaBeam Systems, LLC            Topic: 30e

    Radioactive beams have a major impact on studies of nuclear structure and nuclear physics far from stability. The production of such isotopes is an important component of broad scientific programs at next generation facilities such as the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). To maximize the science reach, the secondary fragments must be filtered from the radioactive beams. Currently, a three-st ...

  6. Development of Additive Manufacturing for Neutron Scattering Collimators

    SBC: RadiaBeam Systems, LLC            Topic: 17a

    Additive manufacturing (AM) technology (aka “3D printing”), through its unique layer-by-layer, freeform fabrication capability, has the potential to revolutionize the way neutron collimators are designed and built, enabling enhanced performance at lower cost. However, there is a need to develop and optimize feedstock materials, along with AM processing parameters, incorporating neutron absorbi ...

  7. Novel Polymer-electrolyte Membrane Development for Carbon Dioxide Conversion to Solar Fuel

    SBC: Opus 12 Incorporated            Topic: 19b

    Sustainable fuels and chemicals production is necessary for the future of the global economy. Opus 12 has developed an electrochemical process to convert CO2 into solar chemicals and fuels. Key to our process is a new polymer-electrolyte membrane design that enables CO2 electroreduction in existing a polymer-electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolyzer hardware. PEM electrolyzers are ideal for coupling ...

  8. Continuous Monitoring of Natural Gas Infrastructure for Increased Community Resilience using Voltammetric Sensors

    SBC: FULLMOON SENSORS, INC.            Topic: None

    Fullmoon has the first chip-level sensors capable of identifying and quantifying molecules in the air. At the core of our technology are printed voltammetric sensors, which are operated using cyclic voltammetry, an electrochemical technique that probes for the redox potential, a unique signature of molecules. We have demonstrated this sensing principle for the detection of carbon monoxide and meth ...

  9. Compact Raman Fiber Optic Probe with Inline Spectral Filtering

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: None

    In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop a compact Raman fiber optic probe with inline spectral filtering that improves fiber-coupled Raman measurements by filtering out Raman scattering from the excitation fiber and elastically scattered laser light from the collection fibers. The technology will enable compact fiber probes for Raman studies i ...
