« Big Blue Bus receives nearly $900K to purchase 58 new Cummins-Westport Near-Zero NOx engines | Main | ICCT: 2025 target average of 70 g/km CO2 for new cars in EU feasible and economical; more so with electric drive » Graphene 3D Lab Inc. and Stony Brook University have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to collaborate with the University’s divisions of Center for Integrated Electrical Energy Systems (CIEES) and Center for Advanced Technology in Sensors (Sensor CAT) to develop technology for a light-weight lithium-ion battery pack with the intended use for aerial drones and mobile robots. Graphene 3D will supply advanced carbon nano-composites materials to CIEES needed to manufacture and test lithium-ion electrical batteries. The company will also have access to the CIEES facilities to perform structural and chemical analysis for quality assurance measurements. There is a strong need for a light, safe and long lasting battery, especially for such emerging technologies as unmanned aerial vehicles and mobile robots. Using graphene in the formulation for the electrode compound of the lithium-ion battery, greatly enhances the battery performance. We anticipate that the demand for our graphene materials will substantially increase in the energy storage market. Working together with research groups in the University and utilizing their state-of-the-art research facilities allows the Company to complete R&D in a very cost effective manner as well as shorten the product development time. The MOU will be in effect for an initial term of one year, corresponding to the specified conditions, with the possibility of an extension if mutually agreed upon by both parties. Graphene 3D Lab develops, manufactures and markets proprietary composites and coatings based on graphene and other advanced materials. These diverse materials have a wide spectrum of commercial, research and military applications. The company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Graphene Laboratories Inc., currently offers more than 100 graphene and related products to a client list comprising more than 11,000 customers worldwide, including nearly every Fortune 500 tech company and major research university. Some notable clients are: NASA, Ford Motor Co., GE, Apple, Xerox, Samsung, Harvard University, IBM and Stanford University. Graphene 3D also holds a new proprietary technology encompassing the preparation and separation of atomic layers of graphene. This represents a new, energy efficient process to manufacture, sort and classify graphene nanoparticles resulting in the potential for large scale production of high grade graphene at lower costs than exist in today’s marketplace.

Hysteresis observed in the resistive semiconductorto- metal phase transition in VO2 causes problems in bolometric readout, and thus is an obstacle in utilizing this strong phase transition in bolometric sensor applications. It is possible to avoid the unwanted hysteresis when operating in limited temperature ranges within the hysteresis loop of VO2. Nonhysteretic branches (NHBs) traced in such limited temperature intervals turned out to have much higher temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) than VO2 at room temperature: while TCR at 25 ?C in VO2 is close to 3%, peak TCR values in NHB-s reach 6% in VO2 films on Si/SiOi2 substrates and 21% in films on crystalline sapphire substrates. At the same time, the nanoscopic-scale mixture of semiconducting and metallic phases in VO2 within its hysteresis loop provides forpartially shunted low resistivity, thus creating an unprecedented combination of record high semiconducting TCR and metal-like low resistance. This combination may benefit the uncooled ocal plane array microbolometer IR visualization technology.

A low maintenance and efficient powering system is being developed for applications in residential wireless AC line metering. A split core current transformer is used as the energy harvester. The collected energy is used to provide constant voltage output. The excess of the energy is stored in a backup battery or super capacitor hybrid. The smart charging approach is utilized to optimize charging/discharging rate in order to optimally utilize available power and maintain constant output voltage. The powering system is intended to operate with the power line average current 10..100 ARMS and provide constant output voltage 3.3V and current up to 100 mA. The system is intended for use with wireless sensors in AC power monitoring applications. Current transformer coupling with the power line facilitates simple 'snap-on' installation of the sensors without interruption of power to customers. © 2014 IEEE.
