DOE-funded research projects win 46 R&D 100 Awards for 2009

hey are round, rather than flat like conventional wires, which lowers heat loss and eliminates energy loss, making longer transmission lengths possible. Superconducting wires can carry five times more power than copper cables and are capable of long-distance power transmission, interconnecting entire continents and providing local energy storage.

  • Thermomagnetic Processing Technology - enhances materials performance with 85 percent higher stretch capability strength, enabling lighter weight designs. The technology uses superconducting magnets to cut down on energy use in the typical heat treat processing. High magnetic fields processing reduces residual stress (post-heat treating stress) and eliminates material phases, thus eliminating specialized thermal processing steps. This technology could revolutionize the U.S. heat-treating industry with reduced energy and processing costs. (Jointly with Eaton Corp., American Magnetics, Inc. and AJAX-TOCCO Magnethermic Corp.)

    • The Perpetua Power Puck - harvests energy from its surrounding environment with the capability for replacing outright conventional chemical batteries. The Power Puck is a renewable energy source that has no moving parts, which makes it more efficient and cost-effective than other technologies. The technology can save time and money in situations where information needs to be collected and power sources need to be maintained at remote sites, such as monitoring the structural integrity of dams, bridges and pipelines. The technology has been licensed to Perpetua Power Source Technologies, in Corvallis, OR. (Jointly with Perpetua)

    • Ultrasensitive ESI-MS Source & Interface - integrates four technologies to provide greater sensitivity and precise measurements from mass spectrometry
