Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 25a
Budget: 02/21/17 - 11/20/17

The procurement of material for Beam Pipe HOM loads has been a long standing problem for three major reasons: 1) the manufacturers tend to be large companies with many customers without a material specifically designed for room temperature or super conducting accelerator beam pipes, 2) as a result, the processes for manufacturing their lossy cer...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 24b
Budget: 04/11/16 - 04/10/18

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab) uses low efficiency klystrons in the CEBAF machine. In the older portion they operate at 30% efficiency with a tube mean time between failure (MTBF) of five to six years. A highly efficient source (>55-60%) must provide a high degree of backwards compatibility, both in size and voltage requir...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 05d
Budget: 06/08/15 - 03/07/16

Battery-powered compact, portable sources of gamma rays with energies between 1 MeV and 6 MeV and with variable duty cycles are needed for a variety of applications, from homeland security to a broad range of industrial and medical applications. Radioactive sources, although compact, are not tunable and are hazardous even when not being used. ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 30d
Budget: 04/06/15 - 04/05/17

The development of high-performance H- ion sources is an effective method for improving the next generation of high power proton accelerators. The SNS at ORNL needs improved H- source performance to meet upgraded SNS requirements. The PIP-II Proton driver at Fermilab needs a CW H Ion Source to satisfy demanding performance specificatio...

Phase 1 STTR

Topic: 24b
Budget: 02/17/15 - 11/16/15

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab) uses low efficiency klystrons in the CEBAF machine. In the older portion they operate at 30% efficiency with a tube mean time between failure (MTBF) of five to six years. A highly efficient replacement source (>55-60%) must provide a high degree of backwards compatibility, both in size a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 33B-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

High field magnets are needed for frontier accelerator facilities and have many applications beyond high-energy physics. Of particular interest are 30-40T class (LTS/HTS hybrid) solenoids required for the final beam cooling stages of a muon collider facility. The successful design of such magnets using Bi2212 conductor depends critically on the ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: ORNL

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 30D-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The development of H- ion sources with highest performance is essential for the success of the next generation of high power proton accelerators. Project X at Fermilab needs a CW H- Ion Source that satisfies demanding performance specifications: 10 mA CW beam current with normalized transverse rms emittance 0.2 mm-mr, fast chopping capability,...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 41B-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLAB) currently uses low efficiency klystrons, with a system of 340 klystrons approaching an MTBF of 170,000 hours. But over the lifetime of the project 60% of the tubes have been replaced, giving an MTBF for a single tube of about five to six years. 45% of the klystrons were replaced over the th...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 10D-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

S-Band vacuum loads at the SLAC linac are encountering operational problems now that they have to operate under the stringent requirements of the LCLS: 50 MW peak power, 6 kW average power, and extremely tight phase stability for the linac. Failure mechanisms have been studied which suggest an RF surface breakdown of the 200 m Kanthal layer. W...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 66 B-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

The Helical Cooling Channel (HCC), a novel technique for six-dimensional (6D) ionization cooling of muon beams, has shown considerable promise based on analytic and simulation studies. However, the implementation of this revolutionary method of muon cooling requires new techniques for the integration of high-power RF cavities into the ...
