  3. Metal Supported Ceramic Separators for Nonaqueous Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: Storagenergy Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 19a

    Redox flow batteries RFBs) are energy storage devices that use solvated redox-active species to interconvert chemical and electrical energy. RFBs have particular advantages, because of the spatial decoupling of redox-active materials RAMs) from the electrodes allowing for independent energy and power scaling. As a critical component in RFB, the separator with highly selective Li+ ion conductivity ...

  4. Large-Area Visible and UV Metal-Oxide Avalanche Photodiodes for Cherenkov Detectors

    SBC: Qrona Technologies LLC            Topic: 34a

    For many decades photomultiplier tubes PMTs) have been the main technology for sensitive and low noise detection of photons in many high energy physics experiments. However, compared to solid-state photodetectors, PMTs are bulky, fragile, and need to be shielded from high magnetic fields and high pressures, which severely limit their application for future DOE projects. Hence, there is a need for ...
