Copper-based photovoltaic nanocrystals for thin-film solar cells
BackgroundImproving efficiency while reducing cost is of paramount importance when it comes to solar cell research. Thin-film solar cells, at the cutting edge of solar cell technology, represent an exciting realm of photovoltaics which promises to do just this. Typically, thin-film solar cells are comprised of a combination of copper, indium, galli...
Formaldehyde-Free Phenolic Bio-Resins
BackgroundPhenol formaldehyde (PF) resins are synthetic polymers which have a market value of $10 billion globally per year. They are used in a wide variety of products, including coatings, adhesives, laminates, and engineered plastics, which comprise many household and industrial goods such as plywood, countertops, brake pads, and bearings. PF res...
Stimuli-responsive polyglyoxylates as biodegradable polymers
Market for Biodegradable PolymersMost synthetic polymers are produced from petrochemicals and are not biodegradable. Conventional polymers such as polypropylene and polyethylene persist in the environment for many years, even after their disposal. The potential of biodegradable polymers to overcome such limitations has long been recognized. Under p...
Super-Hydrophobic and Super-Oleophobic Barrier Coating for Electronic Devices
Background:The electronics industry aims to deliver flexible, lightweight and inexpensive electronic products to consumers. The absence of effective barrier technologies meeting the water permeability demands is the single largest technical hurdle preventing the widespread commercialization of products such as organic solar cells (OPV), disposable ...
Synthesis of Thin Film Vanadium Oxide (VO2)
Introduction:This project involves refining a synthesis of thin films of solid state Vanadium Oxide (VO2) using sol-gel methods. By precisely controlling the processing conditions, (baking temperature, ambient gas in the oven, baking time, solvent etc.), VO2 films can be synthesized that are highly resistant to oxidation. Current published methods ...
Less Lethal Ammunitions for Peace Keeping
Background:Extensive research has been conducted in Canada and abroad on crowd control methods that are effective and that provide the greatest degree of safety possible for both the public and the police.For crowd control and peacekeeping missions there is both a need and pressure for less lethal ammunition. While there are alternative forms of le...
Polymer Nanocomposites via a One-Step Synthesis Method
Our inventors have created some unique polymer nanocomposites which can be formed in one step! Specifically, they have synthesized polyethylene matrices containing silica or titania particles, using supercritical CO2 and acetic acid as the condensation agent. This novel method provides the advantages of combining the nanocomposite synthesis and dry...
Cell Culture Supplements for Generating Mature, Functional, Stabilized Blood Vessels In Vitro
Background: The difficulty in generating complex functional blood vessels in vitro has been an important limitation to the adoption and application of complex cell based models for functional screening and drug discovery. While the formation of endothelial tubes is well known within the academic literature, the ability to generate integrated vessel...
