Participant List



The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Nuclear Physics (NP) organized a three day information exchange meeting between representatives of Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) companies with active or recently completed Phase II grants supported by NP, scientists and engineers from the NP community, and NP Federal Program Managers.  Program Managers from other DOE Offices and Federal Agencies also attended.  The meeting included presentations from the SBIR/STTR companies on their research as well as presentations from invited speakers from the DOE SBIR/STTR Office.

The goals and purpose of the meeting were:

  • To provide a platform for small businesses to present the status of NP-supported Phase II grant work to the NP community and Federal Program Managers.
  • To offer an opportunity to exchange information regarding the companies' capabilities and the technical needs of the NP programs.
  • To strengthen the ties of the SBIR/STTR businesses with the community and enhance the possibilities for commercialization.

The meeting will cover all five Technical Topics in the current NP SBIR/STTR program listed below:
Nuclear Physics Software and Data Management
Nuclear Physics Electronics Design and Fabrication
Nuclear Physics Accelerator Technology
Nuclear Physics Instrumentation, Detection Systems and Techniques
Nuclear Physics Isotope Science and Technology

Participation is on a volunteer basis and will not affect future SBIR application evaluations.  Proprietary aspects of SBIR/STTR work are an important part of SBIR effort and SBIR/STTR speakers are expected to take the necessary precautions during the public sessions.

The meeting was held on August 15-17, 2023, via virtual capabilities.  Technical questions can be directed to Dr. Michelle Shinn (
