Geothermal CO2 Air Conditioner

Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) | Published March 4, 2015  -  Deadline March 25, 2015

DESCRIPTION: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Net Zero Energy Residential Test Facility (NZERTF) serves as a test bed and developmental tool for existing and new technologies that seek to make U.S. homes provide as much energy to the electric utility grid as they consume on an annual basis. A major part of energy consumption in the NZERTF is related to the air-conditioning and heating function performed by an air-to-air heat pump charged with a hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerant, R410A. The NZERTF is equipped with ground-source heat exchangers. The use of a geothermal (water-to-air) heat pump instead of an air-to-air heat pump is expected to result in a reduction of energy used for space conditioning. Considering international negotiations on the phase-down of refrigerants with a high global warming potential (GWP), such as R410A (GWP of 2100), it is of interest to explore the performance of a water-to-air system based on the low GWP refrigerant CO2 (GWP of 1). The goal of this procurement is to obtain a prototype CO2 water-to-air air-conditioner that could be installed and used in the NZERTF for validating the performance and technical merits of using such a system in residential homes. The system shall be designed and provided by the contractor in accordance with the attached Statement of Work (SOW). This solicitation is a Request for Quotation (RFQ). The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 2005-78 The associated North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code for this procurement is 541330 Engineering Services with a small business size standard of $15.0 Million. This acquisition is 100% set aside for small businesses under the applicable small business size standard. NIST anticipates the award of a single, firm-fixed price purchase order. All offerors shall provide a firm-fixed price quotation in accordance with the Instructions to Offerors for the following line items: Line Item 0001: Contractor provision and Government acceptance of Deliverable #1 as detailed in the Statement of Work.

The Office of Acquisition and Agreements Management (OAAM), of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), on behalf of the NIST Laboratories, intends to negotiate on a sole source basis with JEOL USA Inc., under the authority of 41 USC 3304 (a)(1), for a JEOL Transmission Electron Detector and installation services. The Materials and Science and Engineering Division (MSED) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is responsible for promoting U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness in the development and use of materials by advancing measurement science, standards and technology. To fulfill its mission, the MSED utilizes a JEOL Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope to investigate materials in its research programs such as advanced on-chip interconnects, semiconductor nanowires, thin film-based energy storage, and other nano-structured materials. The MSED requires a transmission electron detector (TED) to be equipped and fully integrated with the aforementioned JEOL FESEM. The purpose of the TED is to investigate a variety of materials fabricated into electron transparent thin sections. The TED must be fully compatible with the optical, mechanical, electrical and vacuum systems of the JEOL FESEM. The TED must also be completely integrated with the JEOL FESEM's operational modes and be controllable by JEOL software. The current JEOL software is not capable of controlling non-JEOL equipment. JEOL does not have any authorized distributors or resellers capable of providing and installing the required TED. The North American Classification System (NAICS) code for this acquisition is 334516 - Analytical Laboratory Instrument Manufacturing. The small business size standard is 500 employees. No solicitation package will be issued.

Used, refurbished, prototype, or remanufactured will not be considered for award). BACKGROUND: The Nanoelectronics Group advances measurement science on future electronic and optoelectronic semiconductor devices based on novel or emerging electronic materials, as well as novel and emerging electronic materials for future energy devices such as solar cells and Batteries. The group is looking to purchase a vacuum deposition system which can be integrated with an existing M-Braun Glove Box Train and used to deposit thin films (average film thicknesses of 1 nm to 500 nm) of metals, insulators, and organic materials. Using a conventional, stand-alone, vacuum thin film deposition tool for metal, organic, and inorganic thin film depositions is problematic because many materials of interest are unstable after venting the deposition chamber and exposing the thin films to room air. In addition, the power requirements (thermal budget) to deposit metals like gold, aluminum, or titanium differ significantly from those needed to deposit other materials of interest. Thus, specialized low temperature deposition (point) sources are required for the latter and proper thermal and physical isolation is necessary to prevent cross-contamination of the materials. To successfully perform high quality multi-material thin film depositions a specialized high vacuum thin film deposition system is required with a clean dry pumping system capable of achieving a system base pressure of 5X10-7 Torr or better; having multiple independently controlled deposition sources which are specifically designed for depositing the materials of interest, i.e. inorganic or organic. The base system should have three (3) thermal sources configured for metal deposition by thermal evaporation from filaments or boats, and four (4) low temperature effusion-like cell (point source) for low temperature deposition. The system must mate with an existing MBraun glove box via an existing standardized vacuum flange to allow sample transfer (linear), manipulation (rotation), and pump down prior to exposure to the deposition chamber and subsequent precisely controlled thin film deposition (average thickness and rate). Drawings or photographs of the existing glove box system and flange will be provided upon request. Such a system would permit diverse materials to be deposited sequentially or simultaneously as thin films to allow the fabrication of custom test structures for specialized measurements. This acquisition is for a Thin Film Vacuum Deposition System
