  1. High Temperature Resistant Zirconia Coating for In-space Propulsion

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: X202

    To enhance NASA systems, Spire proposes a novel technique for growing a graded nanocrystalline ZrON/ZrO2 protective coating with superior heat tolerance on relevant in-space substrates. The proposed coating technology will adhere to and protect engine components such as injectors, combustion chambers, nozzles, and nozzle extenders. Conventional high temperature coatings applied by chemical vapor ...

  2. Develop Hydrophilic Conductive Coating Technology with High Oxidation Resistance for Non-Flow-Through PEM Fuel Cells and Electrolyzers

    SBC: Electrochem, Inc.            Topic: X801

    ElectroChem proposes to develop oxidation resistant, electrically conductive, hydrophilic coatings in PEM fuel cells and in PEM electrolyzers. The use of hydrophilic coatings can improve the transport of the water within the cells resulting in higher electrochemical performance. However, the successful development of oxidation resistant hydrophilic coatings will be the key requirement due to the ...

  3. Develop High Efficiency Liquid-Feed PEM Electrolyzer Based on Integrated Flow Field (IFF) Structure

    SBC: Electrochem, Inc.            Topic: X801

    Polymer electrolyte membrane water electrolysis units are currently designed to require active water flow and phase separation, or are based on a passive vapor transport mechanism that inherently limits performance due to mass-transport limitations. ElectroChem has developed and successfully demonstrated a passive water transport Integrated Flow Field concept (its IFF Structure) that controls the ...

  4. High Efficiency Quantum Well Waveguide Solar Cells

    SBC: Magnolia Solar Inc.            Topic: X804

    The long-term objective of this program is to develop flexible, lightweight, single-junction solar cells using quantum structured designs that can achieve ultra-high efficiencies (approaching 45%) while avoiding the current matching issues that plague high-efficiency multi-junction devices. Ultra-low dark currents and record-high open circuit voltages have recently been achieved with a novel III- ...

  5. Dry Epitaxial Lift-Off for High Efficiency Solar Cells

    SBC: OPTICOMP NETWORKS, INC.            Topic: X804

    A new method of transferring epitaxially grown active films onto an inexpensive polymeric flexible carrier. Specifically, for making thin lightweight high efficiency (> 30%) IMM3J solar cells while reusing the GaAs or Ge base wafer. This will reduce the costs of fabricating high efficiency PV cells by 30% and will raise specific power to > 200W/kg. The method uses a thin strained layer under ...

  9. Antibiofouling for Ocean Instruments and Floats Using Microchlorine Generation

    SBC: SEALITE ENGINEERING INC            Topic: S108

    Long term ocean measurements are severely impacted by algae growth. In this proposed work algae will be inhibited by localized, intermitent microgeneration of chlorine from seawater at sub-PPM levels. This technology will minimize operational labor requirements by eliminating ship time now required for cleaning of these sensors, as well as preventing the release of caustic chlorine to the environ ...
