Novel Magnesium Boride Materials for Hydrogen Storage
Hydrogen storage is one of the great challenges limiting the commercialization of polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cell technology for automobile and unmanned vehicles. Full commercialization is dependent upon the development of compact and cost competitive hydrogen storage technologies with longer drive range and capability of meeting pract...

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...

'Alawa: A Unique Mechanistic Model for Battery Diagnosis and Prognosis
The 'alawa toolbox is devoted to battery degradation diagnosis and prognosis. This battery model is constructed from electrode half cell data and enables to forecast battery degradation impact on electrode behavior. The 'alawa approach is very different from conventional models that follow electrochemical, electrical, or typical empirical framework...

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...
