Energy Harvesting Technology
This invention involves a new energy harvesting technology that uses a simple, position-dependent passive switch to harvest the peak electric potential energy generated in the electrostatic induction process as a droplet of liquid moves over different materials. This new technology is perfectly suited to scavenge low-level, otherwise wasted, ambien...

Apparatus & Method for Estimating the State of Health of a Battery via updating the OCV and SOC relationship
The problem: Within a few months from purchase, the fuel gauge in battery-powered devices, from cell phones to EVs, starts to become inaccurate. This is usually noticeable towards the end of discharge where the battery level may suddenly drop from 30% to 5%. This is not a battery problem but a monitoring problem and while this is an annoyance for c...

Hybrid Solid-State/Electrochemical Photoelectrode for Hydrogen Production
Fossil fuels provide about 85% of the world’s energy but scientists have been trying to find alternative energy sources for decades because of the attendant environmental problems and the increasing costs of exploration and production associated with fossil fuels. Adding to these problems, the US Department of Energy projects that the world&r...
