Universidad de Alicante posted this:New metal-free electrocatalysts for fuel cellsThe Carbon Materials and Environment Research Group of the University of Alicante has developed a new method for obtaining carbon materials with excellent properties such as electrocatalysts in fuel cells or metal-air batteries. The process is based on the thermal treatment of polyaniline (or its derivatives) at high temperature and allows to obtain metal-free carbon materials with a high performance, in a very simple, fast way and in a single stage. These novel materials are characterized by their excellent catalytic activity and selectivity in the oxygen reduction reaction in alkaline medium, they are very stable and resistant to methanol and carbon monoxide poisoning, and above all, they stand out for their low manufacturing cost, which makes them promising candidates to replace the current commercial platinum-based catalysts. We are looking for companies interested in acquiring this technology for commercial exploitation.
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Low cost and reusable, non-invasive wireless chemical sensor for biological fluidsLow cost and reusable, non-invasive wireless chemical sensor for biological fluids Researchers from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) have developed a novel wearable sensor technology, which is suitable to detect and monitor in a non-invasively-way metabolites and biomarkers such as glucose, lactate and/or alcohol. The sensor is based on an electrochromicelectrochemical and wireless optical sensing basis, and is suitable to be used on biological fluids (included human or food one). Its mass-production capability by using conventional screen-printing process enables their easy and low-cost integration in multiple form factors. Industrial partners interested on mass production of electrochemical sensors for smart patches, food packaging and textiles (clothes and shoes) applications are being sought to exploit the technology through a license or collaboration agreement.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Production of porous solids with embedded gases to be used as solid-gas nanocomposite materialsCSIC has developed a method for the production of nanoporous solids that contain gas inside their pores. The method is based on magnetron sputtering, but gas consumption is lower in comparison with conventional sputtering methods carried out in dynamic regime. Experimentally, layers of controlled thickness of these nanocomposite materials have been successfully obtained. Gas consumption during the production of these solids was only 0.5% of gas consumption in conventional magnetron sputtering in dynamic regime. Industrial partners from electronic or defence sectors or laboratory materials and chemicals products providers are being sought to collaborate through a patent license agreement.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Fabrication of tips for scanning probe microscopy with enhanced resolutionCSIC has developed tips for scanning probe microscopy (SPM) where an isolated nanoparticle is placed at the apex of the tip. The method allows to tailor the shape, size and composition of the nanoparticle improving the measuring capabilities of the tips. These novel tips are suitable for techniques that combine imaging, such as SPM and spectroscopy like tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS). Industrial partners manufacturers of laboratory equipment are being sought to collaborate through a patent license agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Power Switch for high radiation EnvironmentsCSIC through the Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona - Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica, has developed a novel JFET (Junction Field-Effect Transistor) which is very suitable to be used in high-radiation-level environments such as Space, high-flying aircraft, particles accelerator or radio-medical equipment. Due to its particular configuration, the device presents very high radiation hardness. Industrial partners from the electronic industry focused on radiation detection are being sought to collaborate through a patent license agreement.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Efficient sensing techniques for smart city applicationsThe city of the 21st century demands a set of digital services that provide citizens with improved access to resources such as transport, education, health care, energy, safety, and the environment. Giving intelligence to these services means having an extensive network of sensors and the management of information supported by the Internet of things (IoT). Wireless sensor networks present two major challenges: efficient communication and energy autonomy. Event-based sensing techniques help to optimize both by analyzing the information registered in the sensor and making it available to the network only when necessary. In the GEINTRA group, we have experience in event-based sensing techniques and their application to the field of Smart Cities.

Cracow University of Technology posted this:Comprehensive method to assess the technical condition of the pressure equipment of installation operated in the chemical and petrochemical industryA comprehensive method to assess the technical condition of the pressure equipment of installation operated in the chemical and petrochemical industry, with the use of acoustic emission signal analysis, structure stress field and the degradation st The algorithm for the assessment of the technical condition of pressure equipment of chemical and petrochemical installations, subjected to the long-term operation, allows to determine the damage degree of the material and allows to predict the further development of degradation processes in a function of time. The proposed approach to the problem of safe operation of devices is fundamentally different from the solutions which are currently used in industrial practice. Currently, the supervision of these objects is based mainly on standard non-destructive testing methods. The main limitation of used methods is the lack of the possibility of both examining the object in its entire volume and testing the device in working conditions. Developed algorithm allows to effectively solve current problems in the diagnosis of chemical installations related to the assessment of their technical condition and determination of the conditions for further operation in real time. The algorithm is particularly recommended for monitoring devices in which adverse damages occur due to the long-term operation.
