  1. 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 facilitate the generation of 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 simultaneously at the cathode by the reduction of protons or carbon dioxide, respectively. Ion exchange membranes a ...

  2. High Light Output, High Yield Plastic Scintillator Fibers

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 31d

    Plastic scintillators are relatively easy to manufacture and cheaper compared to their inorganic counterparts. The main drawbacks of plastic scintillators are low light output and low resolution which limits their applications. To develop a new, higher performance family of plastic scintillators and fibers, it is essential to use advances in polymer science and a fundamental understanding of molec ...

  4. Improved Ionomers and Membranes for Fuel Cells

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 10a

    Polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells are one of the most promising energy conversion technologies for renewable clean energy applications. The development of alternatives to current commercial perfluorosulfonic acid based membranes, that lower cost and increase performance, would increase penetration of fuel cell technology into the mass market. This work will focus on the synthesis and develop ...

  6. Optical Line Filter and Spectrometer based Upon Two-Photon Absorption for Doppler LIDAR at 1.053 um

    SBC: ESPYLUX LLC            Topic: S1

    A receiver system for use in LIDAR consisting of an optical filter and optical spectrometer based upon two-photon absorption is proposed.  The filter and spectrometer both use dispersion from excited state transitions of atomic rubidium  to create a birefringent medium. The birefringent medium of the optical filter rotates the polarization of light so that it is transmitted through cross ...

  8. Nanomembrane Interactive Forward Osmosis (FO) Polymers for Desalination and Remediation

    SBC: Covalent LLC            Topic: 15a

    With the expanding use of desalination and wastewater remediation to meet the nation’s fundamental water requirements, the critical economic and environmental needs for reducing energy requirements and enhancing operational functionality can be addressed by a supported one-atomic-layer-thick membrane that incorporates the chemical structures to avoid fouling and scaling. The development of novel ...

  9. High Yield, Atomically Precise Chemical Activation

    SBC: Covalent LLC            Topic: 07a

    Nature is the master manufacturer. We propose to mimic the way the ribosome builds biomolecules in order to make complex molecular building blocks that will, in their first use as a product, function as very complex pores in our water purification and desalination nanomembrane system. These pores will be focused on removing extremely challenging contaminants and toxins. With the expanding use of d ...
