A High Applied Field Magnetizing Holder for the TEM
Scientists can use electron microscopes to see the internal structure of materials, and to probe the inter-relationships between the structure, processing and properties of materials. This project will result in hardware that allows researchers to explore how magnetic materials respond internally to the application of high magnetic fields, and can be expected to lead to new insights and the creation of improved functional magnetic devices.

An Integrated Environmental Holder for the TEM
Exposure of materials to reactive environments can allow exploration of material synthesis from vapor or an improved understanding of the structure and electronic behavior during catalyzed reactions. This project will yield hardware that will allow scientists to more completely characterize such materials in a transmission electron microscope in the presence of gas or liquid at temperature.

Wet Sample Holder for Synchrotron-Based X-ray Microscopy
This project will develop a sample holder that will permit the study of wet samples in the dry vacuum environment of a synchrotron beamline. The new sample holder will increase efficiency of synchrotron-based microscopy experiments saving time while enabling more sensitive measurements of materials like: landfill soils, experimental concrete mixtures that lessen environmental impact, and living cells.

Advanced Ceramic Materials for High Temperature Nuclear Applications
In order to achieve the President-elect's anticipated energy policy, which may involve the elimination of greenhouse gas-producing power sources by 2040, nuclear power and in particular Generation IV (Gen IV) nuclear power is expected to play an important role. The current goal of the Gen IV Nuclear Energy Systems Initiative is to address the fundamental research and development, including advanced materials needs, of this industry to enable a rich and viable future for the United States' nuclear industry. This project will demonstrate the feasibility a scalable and cost effective process for production of advanced ceramics, which will enable intimate control of the composite.

Dissemination of Climate Model Output to the Public and Commercial Sector
The National Weather Service (NWS) provides weather forecasts (extended for several days into the future) and an entire industry has grown based on taking NWS forecasts, and repackaging, interpolating, and providing other processing services for their customers. This project will will take the latest state of the art climatological model forecasts, and perform a similar value-added processing, and deliver them to the general public in their preferred format.

Graphical User Interface for Simplified Neutron Transport Calculations
With the nuclear threats facing this country, it is essential that analysts have the ability to perform simplified neutron transport calculations. A growing need exists in this country for users that do not have expert knowledge for the specific transport codes being used to have access to the power of a monte carlo analysis to obtain accurate results. This project will create a simple neutron transport calculation tool that can provide fast and accurate source-shield-detector calculations.
