  • SmarTap Water resources management

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    SmarTap has been developing a new technology for the next generation of thermostatic electronic faucets. This technology enables the user to monitor and control the water consumption in his property in real time. Shower systems based on this technology offer a unique shower experience combined with safety features and water and energy monitoring and saving capabilities. The systems supply water at the desired temperature and flow without wasting it: the shower will discharge water only at the desired temperature and flow.

  • Energy efficiency and saving systems

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Power Electronics Systems (PES) is a leading global provider of energy efficiency solutions. Leveraging decades of power electronics Research and Development voltage control expertise and environmental concern we deliver products for a range of lighting and electric motor applications as well as new products for the domestic and small business market to be integrated with smart grid developments for improving grid performance optimizing peak demand and increase overall network reliability and efficiency.

  • Piezoelectric Voltage Transformer For Low Voltage Transistors

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Technology Description: Power consumption is increasingly critical for modern electronics. In the past transistor voltage reduced with shrinking size but in recent years the voltage scaling has stopped. At the end of the transistor roadmap the operating voltage is projected to be reaching just 0.4 V. To reduce the voltage below this floor value the transistor needs to be reinvented.

  • Bio-Based Block Copolymers Derived From Lignin and Plant Oils

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    The University of Delaware seeks to commercialize through patent licensing and associated collaborative R&D novel bio-based block copolymers made from renewable resources for use as thermoplastic elastomers pressure sensitive adhesives and other devices that require phase-separated nanostructures such as those with applications in lithography electronic materials photovoltaics and templates for data storage. The new diblock and triblock materials are comprised entirely of bio-based materials primarily Lignin and Fatty Acids.

  • Industrial waste treatment

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Industrial wastewater containing high concentration of organic materials are very difficult and expensive to treat especially if the wastewater contains salts as well. Elcon developed a very efficient and cost effective ambient pressure thermal oxidation of the waste streams that allows total destruction of organic matter and re-use of the treated water. All that is achieved at lower costs than biological or incineration alternatives.

  • Water Resources Management

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Miltel is a leader in Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) and Advanced Management Infrastructure (AMI Miltel has extended the application of its proprietary Data Acquisition and Transport (DAT) technology to overcome the communications challenges faced by municipalities and utilities. Today Miltel uses DAT technology in its leak detection solutions fire-hydrant locking and management solutions and others. The Red Cap System is a wireless fixed network system for the monitoring and management of municipal fire hydrants.

  • Industry Friendly Solution Synthesis and Processing Earth Abundant Cu2ZnSn(SSe)4 Solar Cells

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Kesterite copper zinc tin chalcogenide Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) is a promising candidate material for large-scale low-cost solar energy enterprises. CZTS has optical and electronic properties comparable with CIGS material systems and is not burdened by the scarcity and cost issues associated with other semiconducting solar materials. UCLA researchers have developed a process to fabricate CZTS thin films using industry friendly solvents thereby minimizing use of the highly reactive and hazardous hydrazine solvents that are employed in current production lines.

  • Biosensor and methods of fabricating the same

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Copper is an exceptional material to use in electronic devices due to its low resistivity and low cost. One drawback that limits the use of copper in electronics is the high temperatures required to attach the copper to the host material. These temperatures range from 200°C to over 400°C. Most processes require 15 minutes to 3 hours in an oven to attach the copper. Higher temperatures can shorten the time requirement but many substrates (e.g. plastic flexible electronics) are not able to withstand the intense heat requirements.

  • Self-Healing Electrode for Lithium Ion Battery

    Type: 
    Product

    Stanford researchers have demonstrated for the first time a self healing electrode which can dramatically enhance the cycle lifetime of lithium ion batteries by applying Si microparticles with a thin layer of self-healing conductive composite. Cracks and damages in the electrode over the large volume changes of Si materials during lithiation and dilithiation were found to be able to self-heal automatically and thus greatly enhance the cycling stability.

  • Stable cycling of lithium sulfide cathodes through strong affinity with multifunctional binders

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Background: Rechargeable lithium sulfur batteries have attracted great interest in recent years because of their high theoretical specific energy which is several times that of current lithium-ion batteries. Compared to sulfur fully-lithiated Li2S represents a more attractive cathode material because it enables pairing with safer lithium metal-free anodes.
