  2. 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 ...

  4. Improved Membranes for Solar Fuels Generators

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 19b

    Solar fuels generators harness solar energy as the power source to generate either hydrogen or carbon-based fuels. In both cases, water is electrochemically oxidized to produce oxygen, protons and electrons at the anode. Hydrogen or carbon-based fuels are produced at the cathode by the reduction of protons or carbon dioxide, respectively. Ion exchange membranes are a critical component of the syst ...
