A High Flux Solar Thermal Receiver
Technology Description The microchannel based solar receiver (MSR) uses a modular arrangement of microchannels in its design that enable the working fluid to be heated in a concentrating solar receiver. The MSR is made of nickel super alloy and designed with the microchannels operating in parallel, which allows a large amount of flux to be removed ...

Atomically Smooth Nanoporous Alumina Thin Films
Technology Description This technology is a novel method for producing near-atomically smooth, porous alumina thin films by spin coating, in ambient conditions, using aqueous precursors. By utilizing this method, the refractive index of the alumina thin film is tunable from 1.56 to 1.26 by the introduction of a nonionic surfactant in the aqueous pr...
