  1. Transformation of carbon emissions to high-value products through a two-step electrochemical platform

    SBC: LECTROLYST LLC            Topic: G

    Carbon dioxide utilization can help reduce carbon emissions, but gaps remain in the value chain from initial capture to high-value products. Lectrolyst LLC will develop an electrochemical platform centered on selective two-step conversion of CO2 to acetic acid and ethylene, to fill this need. Preliminary life cycle assessment and techno-economic analyses indicate ~200 million metric tons of CO2 em ...

  5. Advanced RIIC Technology to Increase Density and Efficiency of IRLED Arrays (ART-IDEA)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: AF171015

    We propose to study how extraction efficiency can be improved by reducing IRLED pixel pitch. Our approach is to scale the size of RIIC pixel and IRLED device from 24-microns down to 12-microns and to lower the IRLED drive voltage from 10 Volts to 5 Volts.

  6. A Novel, High Precision, X-ray 3D Scanner for Non-Line-of-Sight Point Cloud Generation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF161013

    ABSTRACT: Casting parts with intricate internal surfaces are routinely used in many gun systems. It is important to inspect those casting parts to ensure the inner structures comply with the original design during the first article testing and production lot certification. Currently, inspections of inner surfaces are often done with borescopes, which is time consuming, labor intensive, and costly. ...

  7. A Novel, Low Cost and Handheld Metal Sorting Sensor for Chemical Cleaning and Stripping Process

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF161009

    ABSTRACT: After a certain amount of service time, many aircraft components need to be cleaned and the coatings on those parts need to be stripped. Prior to the chemical cleaning and stripping processes, those parts are routinely examined by inspectors to locate the part numbers and find their matches on a list. Such a visual inspection process is not only time consuming, but also prone to human er ...
