  1. c: Low Cost, Robust, Rechargeable Oxygen Cathode for Metal-Air Systems

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    Metal-air chemistry has the highest theoretical energy density due to the use of an inexhaustible supply of low-cost O2 discharging 4 electrons per molecule as a cathode. For example, lithium-air yields 13 kWh/kg versus the anemic 0.42 kWh/kg for lithium-ion[6], highlighting the tremendous advantage in energy density of metal-air over existing technology, and important for reducing the overall cos ...

  3. 22: Advanced Technologies and Materials for Fusion Energy Systems

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    An attractive fusion energy source will require the development of superconducting magnets and materials as well as technologies that can withstand the high levels of surface heat flux and neutron wall loads expected for the in-vessel components of future fusion energy systems. These technologies and materials will need to be substantially advanced relative to today's capabilities in order to achi ...

  4. a: Plasma Facing Components

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    The plasma facing components (PFCs) in energy producing fusion devices will experience 5-15 MW/m2 surface heat flux under normal operation (steadystate)and off-normal energy deposition up to 1 MJ/m2 within 0.1 to 1.0 ms. Refractory solid surfaces represent one type of PFC option. These PFCs are envisioned to have a refractory metal heat sink, cooled by helium gas, and a plasma facing surface, cons ...

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    Blanket systems including an integrated first wall facing the plasma are complex, multi-function, multi-material components that capture neutrons emitted from the burning plasma to both produce tritium via nuclear reactions with lithium, and extract the energy for efficient power conversion. Associated with the blanket are coolant and tritium processing systems, all of which have scientific and te ...
