Framework substituted clathrates for lithium-ion battery anodes (Alternate title: Alloys of clathrate allotropes for rechargeable batteries)

Framework substituted clathrates for lithium-ion battery anodes (Alternate title: Alloys of clathrate allotropes for rechargeable batteries)

The lithium battery industry is undergoing rapid expansion, now representing the largest segment of the portable battery industry and dominating the computer, cell phone, and camera power source industry. Beyond consumer electronics, LIBs are also growing in popularity for military, electric vehicle, and aerospace applications. Lithium-ion batterie ...

Modular Battery Controller

Modular Battery Controller

Technology Description:Innovators at NASA’s Glenn Research Center have developed a masterless, distributed, digital-charge control for multiple battery cells in a series to significantly improve fault tolerance. Existing digital charge control systems for batteries are susceptible to single-fault failure. Glenn’s innovation overcomes this problem b ...

Advanced Aircraft Wing Tip Design

Advanced Aircraft Wing Tip Design

Wake turbulence produces inward vortex at the wing tip of a flying aircraft. It creates turbulence and poses safety concern for trailing aircraft, while at the same time increases drag force. The existing winglet technology is able to reduce wake vortex formation but not completely eliminate it. This novel technology is based on the proven concept ...

Coiled-Tube Heat Exchanger for Metal Hydride Hydrogen Storage

Coiled-Tube Heat Exchanger for Metal Hydride Hydrogen Storage

There is great interest in developing hydrogen power devices, especially hydrogen powered automobiles. One prerequisite for this application is that there is enough hydrogen to give comparable driving ranges as conventionally fueled automobiles. However, hydrogen poses the problem of very low density. To overcome this obstacle, solid-state hydrogen ...

Cyber-Physical Bike: A Step Towards Safer Green Transportation

Cyber-Physical Bike: A Step Towards Safer Green Transportation

Rutgers researchers have designed a cyber-physical bicycle (the CyberBike), which will highly enhance cyclist safety and is likely to encourage safer bicycle use as a form of green transportation. The CyberBike integrates multimodal sensing (camera, audio, accelerometer, and positioning sensors) and state-of-the-art computer vision and audi ...

Six-Bar Rear Bicycle Suspension

Six-Bar Rear Bicycle Suspension

Current bicycle rear suspension designs cannot ensure that the axle of the rear wheel follows a circle around the bottom bracket that holds the pedal wheel axle. This means that pedal forces cause the suspension to deflect, which wastes rider energy.

Micro-Channel Heat Exchanger for Metal Hydride Hydrogen Storage

Micro-Channel Heat Exchanger for Metal Hydride Hydrogen Storage

Background:There is great interest in developing hydrogen power devices, especially hydrogen powered automobiles. One prerequisite for this application is that there is enough hydrogen to give comparable driving ranges as conventionally fueled automobiles. However, hydrogen poses the problem of very low density. To overcome this obstacle, solid-sta ...

Docking and securement system for wheeled mobility devices

Docking and securement system for wheeled mobility devices

The present invention relates to docking or securement devices, systems and methods for securing wheeled mobility devices used by person with physical disabilities in both public and private transport vehicles. The securing mechanism is adapted to dock with the device interface upon rearward motion of the wheeled mobility device relative to the do ...

Novel Thermoset Siloxane-Urethane Fouling Release Coatings

Novel Thermoset Siloxane-Urethane Fouling Release Coatings

The adherence of organisms to surfaces exposed to aquatic environments (fouling) is a major economic concern, particularly in the maritime shipping industry. Fouling on ships can increase fuel consumption by up to 40%. Coatings that prevent fouling currently exist but are an environmental concern due to their release of toxic levels of tin and copp ...

Novel Capacitor for Rechargeable Batteries with Longer Lifetimes

Novel Capacitor for Rechargeable Batteries with Longer Lifetimes

Background:The lithium ion battery is currently the state of the art battery used in industry for its medium-length lifetime and constant charge capacity throughout its lifetime. This type of battery, however, is costly to produce and does not have a long enough lifetime to support some devices in high-current applications for as long as is desira ...
