Coating that lowers the maintenance cost of gear boxes in wind turbines and automotive applications via enhanced reliability from micro/macro-pittingIntellectual Property Available to License
A method for making a pitting resistant carbon coating that includes a hydrogenated diamond-like coating (“H-DLC”). The H-DLC is relatively soft and elastic. Unlike hard and/or inelastic coatings in the prior art, the present coatings do not exhibit a loss of adhesion (delamination). A bonding layer may be deposited on a metallic substrate and the deposited H-DLC on the bonding layer.
This invention is a new method of fabricating concave/convex optics in which a singlestructure crystal wafer will undergo curvature due to forces created by vacuum rather than the standard compressive techniques.Intellectual Property Available to License
This method attempts to reduce the amount of residual stress and aberration that occurs by eliminating the forceful bending of such standard devices. This invention solves a difficult problem faced by those wishing to create a crystal surface, with even modest curvature, without causing non-uniform residual surface stresses.
This invention relates to a method for determining corrosion behavior in metals and more specifically, the invention provides an experimental method and model based on electrode-kinetics theory that can be used for predicting corrosion rates and lifecycleIntellectual Property Available to License
The corrosion behaviors of materials must be addressed to develop both durable and degradable alloys for use in various applications and predict their long-term performance in service conditions.
This invention comprises an electrochemical test method that imposes the chemical and redox conditions and allows the material surface representing the long-term performance of durable or degradable materials to develop in various applications.
Efficient and low cost subcooled boiling cooling system designed for applications in hybrid electric vehicles and high-density power electronicsIntellectual Property Available to License
The invention provides a single radiator cooling system for use in hybrid electric vehicles, the system comprising a surface in thermal communication with electronics, and subcooled boiling fluid contacting the surface. The invention also provides a single radiator method for simultaneously cooling electronics and an internal combustion engine in a hybrid electric vehicle, the method comprising separating a coolant fluid into a first portion and a second portion; directing the first portion to the electronics and the second portion to the internal combustion engine for a time sufficient to maintain the temperature of the electronics at or below 175° C.; combining the first and second portion to reestablish the coolant fluid; and treating the reestablished coolant fluid to the single radiator for a time sufficient to decrease the temperature of the reestablished coolant fluid to the temperature it had before separation.
Applications in separating H2 from various gas mixtures with high permeation fluxIntellectual Property Available to License
A process for forming a palladium or palladium alloy membrane on a ceramic surface by forming a pre-colloid mixture comprising a powder palladium source, carrier fluid, dispersant and a pore former and a binder. Ultrasonically agitating the precolloid mixture and applying to a substrate with an ultrasonic nozzle and heat curing the coating form a palladium-based membrane.
