Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 27a
Budget: 07/31/17 - 07/30/19

Accelerator magnets that are currently being used in high-energy physics experiments are limited to a maximum magnetic field of less than 20 T because superconductivity in the low- temperature superconductors from which the magnets are constructed breaks down at higher fields. The next generation of accelerator magnets needs to be made from high...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 26b
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

The feasibility of fusion as a practical energy source needs to be improved significantly by removing some of the restrictions that low-temperature superconductors put on the fusion magnet systems. One method to simplify the magnet system is by using high-temperature superconductors that allow for more compact magnet systems with higher performa...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 19c
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

Pulsed fiber lasers are widely used in machining and material processing applications. Having control of the pulse width, pulse energy, and repetition rate allows flexibility in processing operations. This technology can be adapted for use in DoE facilities for applications such as high reliability, variable pulse-pattern, high-repetition-rate, ...

Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 22c
Budget: 08/01/16 - 07/31/18

The feasibility of fusion as a practical energy source needs to be improved significantly by removing some of the restrictions that low temperature superconductors put on the fusion magnet systems. One method to simplify the magnet system is by using high temperature superconductors (HTS) that allow for a higher magnet performance and much large...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-026
Budget: 07/29/16 - 01/25/17

Future power systems on Navy ships require electrical power in the order of 20-80 MW, which currently cant be provided by conventional copper or aluminum power cables. Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC (ACT) has been developing high-temperature superconducting Conductor on Round Core (CORC) power transmission cables, rated at 10 kA per phase, ...

Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

Accelerator magnets that are currently being used in high-­‐energy physics experiments are limited to a maximum magnetic field of less than 20 T because superconductivity in the low-­‐ temperature superconductors from which the magnets are constructed breaks down at higher fields. The next generation of accelerator magnets needs to be made from ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Florida State University - Center f

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T011
Budget: 06/08/16 - 12/05/16
PI: Van Der

Future power systems on board Navy ships require electrical power in the order of 20 to 80 MW, which currently cant be provided by conventional copper or aluminum power cables. Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC (ACT) has been developing high-temperature superconducting Conductor on Round Core (CORC) power transmission cables, rated at 10 kA pe...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Florida State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N15A-T016
Budget: 07/06/15 - 05/06/16
PI: Van Der

The Navy is interested in developing hybrid superconducting power transmission cables that would carry at least 5 kA of current and have a current density of at least 35 MA/m2. The cable should be able to carry 30 % of the rated current even when the superconducting cable fails. We propose to develop a hybrid superconducting cable, based on CORC...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-049
Budget: 02/07/14 - 02/07/16
PI: Van Der

The Navy has expressed interest in shipboard high-temperature superconducting (HTS) cable systems for power transmission and degaussing purposes. The practical application of such cable systems require flexible superconducting cables and cable connectors that allow for a quick and reliable installation into, or removal from, its pre-installed cr...
