Device for Harvesting Vibration Energy to Power Remote Sensors or Feed the Power Grid
TS-049909 — A control method based upon properties of linear systems to manipulate the vibrational amplitudes and frequencies of structural systems by exploiting piecewise-linear (PWL) nonlinearities. .tb_button {padding:1px;cursor:pointer;border-right: 1px solid #8b8b8b;border-left: 1px solid #FFF;border-bottom: 1px solid #fff;}.tb_button.hover {borer:2px outset #def; background-color: #f8f8f8 !important;}.ws_toolbar {z-index:100000} .ws_toolbar .ws_tb_btn {cursor:pointer;border:1px solid #555;padding:3px} .tb_highlight{background-color:yellow} .tb_hide {visibility:hidden} .ws_toolbar img {padding:2px;margin:0px}
Energy harvesting from system vibrations is considered a promising green energy source with the capacity to both self-power small-scale devices and fulfill the need of large-scale electricity generation. A recent report by BCC research found that the markets for Vibration, Displacement, and Mechan…

Alcohol Production from Carbon Dioxide
TS-014972 — An electrochemical process on a metal electrode catalyst is used to produce alcohols such as ethanol, ethylene, propanol, acetic acid, ethane, and formic acid from the direct conversion of carbon dioxide
In the United States, there is an increasing interest in ethanol as an alternative fuel source to decrease the dependence on fossil fuels. In 2012, the National Corn Growers Association reported that 27.3% of the corn harvested in the U.S. was used for the production of ethanol. This has sparked a…
