  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 ...

  2. Centimeter-sized Photon-Sensing Integrated Circuit (PSIC) Detector and Receiver for Lidars at 475nm Wavelength

    SBC: Wavefront Vision Inc            Topic: N191008

    Lidar operates as a pair of synchronized photon emitter and receiver, where the receiver detects the emitted photons reflected from the target. The photon emission is temporally modulated into pulses, and the receiver detects the temporal modulation in the reflected photons and derives target range information, similar to the radar. The most common temporal modulation in lidars is by laser pulses ...
