  1. ENHANCEEnabling Hybrid Anodes with Nano-Carbon Electrodes

    SBC: Cellec Technologies Inc            Topic: AF19AT014

    The objective of this research program is to develop an ultra-lightweight carbon nanotube-lithium metal (CNT-Li) hybrid anode to enable high energy density lithium ion cells. These CNT-Li anodes will be paired with carbon nanotube enhanced high areal loading (mAh/cm2) cathodes to achieve cell-level energy densities that exceed 400 Wh/kg at the cell-level and have the potential to exceed 500 Wh/kg. ...

  3. Design of Flexible Materials for Aerodynamic Structures

    SBC: Hall, Claudia Maldonado            Topic: AF19BT001

    The PI has worked on a design concept for a wind turbine blade with adaptive twist transformation. The design improves wind capture and reduces loading on the system drivetrain turbine by adapting the twist distribution in relation to wind speed. Structural adaptability is enabled by actuating a series of compliant segments that are mounted on a relatively rigid spar. The segments are assumed to h ...

  8. Enabling point of care molecular diagnostics by developing an adaptive PCR instrument and on demand kit reagents

    SBC: BIOVENTURES, INC            Topic: 172

    Because of its high sensitivity polymerase chain reaction PCR is the gold standard for the diagnosis of many infectious diseases but generally only implemented in well equipped laboratories One of the major roadblocks for expanding PCR to point of care markets is the lack of simple robust single tube PCR designs which preserve its laboratory based high sensitivity and specificity In this F ...
