An electrochemical battery is provided with an aluminum anode current collector and an antimony (Sb)-based electrochemically active material overlying the aluminum current collector. The Sb-based electrochemically active material may be pure antimony, Sb with other metal elements, or Sb with non-metal elements. For example, the Sb-based electrochemically active material may be one of the following: Sb binary or ternary alloys of sodium, silicon, tin, germanium, bismuth, selenium, tellurium, thallium, aluminum, gold, cadmium, mercury, cesium, gallium, titanium, lead, carbon, and combinations thereof. The aluminum current collector may additionally include a material such as magnesium, iron, nickel, titanium, and combinations thereof. In one aspect, the anode further composed of a coating interposed between the aluminum current collector and the Sb-based electrochemically active material. This coating may be a non-corrodible metal or a carbonaceous material. The cathode is may be composed of a number of different active materials including sodium-based Prussian Blue analogues.

A system for determining a high resolution output image that includes receiving a low resolution image and determining an intermediate high resolution image. The system detects semantic features based upon the input image and selects corresponding semantic components from a database based upon the detected semantic features. The first intermediate high resolution image is modified based upon information from the corresponding semantic components to determine the high resolution output image.

A user equipment (UE) may comprise a detector which is configured to detect a first sidelink synchronization signal. The UE may comprise a receiver which is configured to receive a physical sidelink channel. The physical sidelink channel may carry information specifying whether or not a source of the first sidelink synchronization signal is in-coverage. The first sidelink synchronization signal may be generated by using at least a first identity.
