Rensselaer inventors created a nanocomposite fiber that promotes quick coagulation during hemorrhage resulting in reduced mobility and improved survival. The nanofiber composite is comprised of halloysite nanoclay, a natural occurring aluminosilicate nanoclay that exhibits a hollow tubular scroll structure. Hemostatic products on the market are effective in the short-term but…
Alkaline exchange membranes (AEMs), also called anion exchange membranes, allow transportation of anions (ex: OH-, Cl-, Br-, etc.) from the cathode to the anode in electrochemical reaction. AEMs are the most critical component of AEM fuel cells, water electrolysis, and certain batteries, sensors, and actuators. Many AEM materials tend to degrade easily under high alkaline.…
Existing batteries suffer from performance deficiencies, for example, they have limited power density and may drain rapidly when used for certain applications. By employing sulfur in their cathodes, LiS batteries can realize substantially greater energy densities than existing energy storage devices. Sulfur by itself is not a suitable electrode material due to its poor…
This technology relates to adaptive optical devices, and particularly to liquid lenses. Such optical devices avoid the increased weight and fabrication complexity associated with moving solid lenses. This technology utilizes a lens magnification control for adjusting magnification of the liquid lens by increasing a volume of protruding liquid residing in a chamber.
This technology relates to anion exchange membranes with enhanced stability to high pH environments including poly(arylene sulfone) or poly(arylene ketone) with anion exchange groups. Membranes according to this technology are simple to produce and have good mechanical properties, improved alkaline stability, as well as good anionic conductivity. This technology is…
This technology relates to active flow control using an active roughness actuator. The active roughness actuator includes a surface having an aperture; a compliant layer covering the aperture; a chamber containing a fluid and a piezoelectric surface mechanically coupled to the chamber. The chamber is in fluid communication with the compliant layer via the at least one…
Rensselaer researchers have developed a thermodynamically stable dispersion technology resulting in thick, transparent, high refractive index silicone nanocomposites that increase the light efficiency of LEDs and improve the emitted light color quality. The nanocomposites could also be processed as transparent bulk material with high filler loading, which is essential for…
This technology relates to synthesizing nanoparticles with multiple polymer assemblies attached. In one example, a first anchoring compound is attached to a nanoparticle, and a first group of monomers are polymerized on the first anchoring compound to form a first polymeric chain covalently bonded to the nanoparticle via the first anchoring compound. In another example, a…
This technology relates to a photopolymerizable class of vinyl ether oligomers which can find application in the areas of coatings, adhesives, printing inks, photoresists and high impact composites. The versatile photopolymerization capability makes these oligomers an excellent strategic candidate for shrinkage control coatings in place of acrylates. These oligomers include…
This technology relates to a high thermal conductivity thermal interface material that allows for the formation of an interconnected, spanning, high thermal conductivity network within the matrix of a polymeric material using nano particles. This material can yield two orders of magnitude higher thermal conductivities than the non-network counterpart, as well as factorial…
