This project will determine the relative value of two different kinds of module construction for encapsulating photovoltaic cells: one of double-glass construction and the other known as glass/backsheet, where the backsheet is instead a multilayer polymer laminate.
Developing modular, portable, reliable methane reformers to convert natural gas syngas at wellheads, with the potential for subsequent conversion to (for example) higher- value hydrocarbons or hydrogen for carbon-free electricity.
This project seeks to improve the understanding of high-deposition LHW processing of Grade 2 CP-Ti and the variables that affect structure/chemistry/properties; and determine the effects of processing conditions and build/volume thickness on the strength, ductility and fracture toughness of LHW-processed Grade 2 CP-Ti for different thickness and orientations.
This work will investigate the microstructure-property relationships in 5XXX Aluminum Alloy(s) samples from the decommissioned HMCS Iroquois and HMCS Athabaskan to evaluate the effects of more than 40 years of service-related exposures to environmental/thermal excursions on the current microstructure and current mechanical properties of pedigree material.
Aims to clarify and establish processing requirements for 2-D metal oxides to access these materials down to the smallest level—mono- and nano-layers—and control their lateral size, crystallographic structure and electrical properties.
Seeks to understand the impact of operating conditions and stages of performance loss on specific microstructural changes in solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) cathodes based on lanthanum strontium manganite (LSM).
