The group seeks companies in communications, computer and electronic sector to reach licensing agreements, collaboration and commercial agreements with technical assistance.
Universitat de València posted this:Micromechanical dry exfoliation deviceThe main advantages provided by the invention are: Versatility: the method is applicable to any layered material and on any type of substrate. Simplicity: the method consists in a dry exfoliation without adhesive materials. Quality and reproducibility: the exfoliation is clean (no trace of adhesive), reproducible and it does not produce defects in the substrate. Efficiency: it is possible to deposit a high density of atomically thin layers of the material. Control: it is possible to control the pressure exerted, allowing for a fine-tuning of the deposition conditions depending on the nature of the layered material manipulated.
Universitat de València posted this:Nanocomposites for electrochemical supercapacitorsThe new materials have the following advantages over existing materials in supercapacitor’s sector: Supercapacitive properties: they have specific capacitance values much higher than those obtained by commercial nanostructured carbon electrodes. Low cost: obtained by a chemical process of a single stage, with a single precursor, at low temperature, and highly available, non-polluting and low cost materials. Good cyclability: testing in cyclability is promising in terms of electrochemical and mechanical stability. In parallel to its advantages as supercapacitors, the nanocomposites show the advantages associated with the following additional properties: Giant magnetoresistance, GMR: this property is observed at room temperature, and high magnetic fields are not needed. Source of carbon nanoforms: based on the nanocomposite, can be obtained a mixture of carbon nanoforms consisting of nano-onions and multi-walled nanotubes.
UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Wastewater treatment by electrocoagulation (EC)The Department of Physical Chemistry (Applied Electrochemical Group LEQA) at the University of Alicante has a high experience and know-how to develop and carry out the removal of pollutants in wastewaters by electrocoagulation (EC). A pilot plant fully equipped with the necessary infrastructure and with ability to treat 100L/h of wastes is available in order to develop the pre-industrial phase and scaling-up of these processes. This technology could be of interest to several industries: chemical, tannery, textile, etc. Innovative aspects of the tecnology: - The EC cell is controlled electrically and have no moving parts, thus requires less maintenance - The EC process avoids uses of chemicals and so there is no problem of neutralizing excess chemicals. - EC produces effluent with less total dissolved solids (TDS) content as compared with chemical treatments.
UNIVERSIDAD DE ALICANTE posted this:Low cost system for measuring vibrations through camerasAmong the current methods for measuring vibrations, accelerometers are traditionally preferred. Nevertheless, these methods are contact devices, which may be difficult to use when the specimens not accessible due to the object itself or the surrounding conditions (inaccessibility, damage risk, etc.). Alternatively to the accelerometers, Doppler vibrometers are often used as non-contact devices. Although they provide very accurate result, they result expensive and non-cost effective for many applications. Additionally, both of them only provide a single point measurement while our method permits, not only monitoring the process but, with the vibration map, obtaining the vibration frequencies of all vibrating objects in the scene at a glance.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:New set of software tools for the strategic planning of 2nd and 3rd generation mobile networks and its extension to networks of 4th generation LTEThe principal potential of these tools lies in the use of very advanced algorithms of planning of mobile networks that allow to optimized the network from the point of view of the investment that has to be done by the operator. The current commercial models are usually based on small programmes done in Excell that evidently does not have the optimum potential of these heuristic developed in languages of high-level programming. These tools provide the necessary information to the cost model LRIC Bottom Up defined by the European Commission. Operators and governments of different countries already have used the tools that are described in this document.

Universitat de Girona posted this:ViTAM, Videoconferencing multiplatform solutionsThe main innovation aspects in ViTAM are the following: - Simple and usable user interfaces. User interfaces are asymmetrical, differing from the patient and the professional. While the patient’s interface is extremely simplified, the professional’s side keeps a slightly higher complexity to keep control of the videoconferencing. This approach facilitates at most the use of technology by non-experts. - Specially designed for medical and social consultations. It implements two innovative operation modes not available in the market: the online consultation with waiting room and the videoconferencing call centre (coming soon). - Multiplatform and Multidevice. It is multiplatform (Windows, Mac, Android, iOS) and multidevice (PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone). - Easy integration. It can be easily integrated in or with other applications, as well as connect with external services (e.g. electronic health record, calendar). - Customisation. It can be customised not only in terms of graphical user interface but also in the workflow so as to implement new personalised videoconferencing scenarios. - Single and multiple videoconferencing. It offers 1 to 1 videoconferencing and multivideoconferencing in a single and unified interface. - Privacy. It ensures privacy protection by providing communications and data protection and enables its deployment on certified medical data management servers. - Sensors. It can be implemented as a background application running on the device, which can receive incoming connection requests, which can be useful when linked to sensors data alarms (e.g. blood pressure).

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:New technology for applying attitude optimal control to aircrafts and satellitesThe developed technology for being applied to aircrafts and satellites in order to perform attitude optimal control is cost-effective and robust against changes in the environment or in physic structure of the platform. One of the pillars of the new technology is the lack of mathematical models for the performance of control and, instead, it uses the experience gained through interaction with the environment and the platform. As a consequence of the internal behaviour of the technology, the new system is not sensitive to sampling period used.
