Open Circuit Voltage Photodetector
TS-065426 — Photodetectors are devices that detect light and convert it into an electrical signal. They operate based on the photoelectric effect, in which photons (light particles) strike the semiconductor material, creating electron-hole pairs that lead to the flow of electrical current that can be measured.
Existing photodetectors are susceptible to various noise sources, such as thermal and electronic. The noise can degrade the signal-to-noise ratio and affect the accuracy of measurements, particularly in low-light conditions. This technology is an open-circuit voltage photodetector (OCVP) that…

Containment System for Heating and Off-Gassing
TS-065424 — Due to environmental concerns and the decreasing supply of fossil fuels, there is substantial demand for nuclear-based energy production. Nuclear energy now provides about 10% of the world's electricity from about 440 power reactors and is the second largest source of low-carbon power. In addition, over 50 smaller countries utilize nuclear energy in about 220 research-size reactors. These reactors are used to produce medical and industrial isotopes and several other purposes.
It is essential to meet the safeguard requirements in liquid-fueled molten salt reactors, fuel salt transportation, and fuel cycle processes and to develop effective methods for measuring and monitoring the mass of molten fuel salt or coolant salt. However, due to the complex and dynamic nature o…

Fluid Active Flow Control Enabled Variable Turbine Vane
TS-065423 — Turbine aircraft engines (jet engines) are a type of propulsion system commonly used in aviation. These engines operate on jet propulsion, where air is drawn into the engine, mixed with fuel, ignited, and then expelled at high speed to generate thrust. Jet engines are used in commercial and military aircraft, as well as helicopters.
While turbine aircraft engines offer higher efficiency and performance than their counterparts, there is still a need to improve efficiency and reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gases. It’s estimated that jet engines account for over 2.5% of all CO2 emissions, and there are substantial …

Halbach Cladding Magnets for Friction Reduction in Magnetic Gears
TS-065418 — Traditional mechanical gears rely on physical teeth engagement to transfer motion and torque while magnetic gears use the repulsive or attractive forces between magnets to achieve the same goal. Magnetic gears have several advantages: low noise and vibration, reduced maintenance, and inherent overload protection. Magnetic gears are used in applications that require variable speed control and precise torque transmission, such as robotics, aircraft, and automation.
Although magnetic gears provide several advantages to their traditional mechanical counterparts, they suffer from torque transmission inefficiency due to end-effect loss, which occurs when the magnetic flux leaks axially into the surrounding air and fails to couple between the rotors. As industri…
