Method to enhance light extraction efficiency in tunnel-injected III-Nitrate ultraviolet LEDs
TS-037365 — A novel method to enhance the transverse-electric and transverse-magnetic polarized light via relfective surfaces on top of a tunnel junction based LED structure.
III-Nitride ultraviolet light emitting diodes (UV LEDs) have a variety of promising applications, including sterilization and water purification. Currently, UV LEDs use an absorbing p-GaN top layer for hole injection, which reduces light extraction efficiency to lower than 20%. UV light emissions …

U+RSW - A Break-Through Process for Dissimilar Metal Joining in Automotive Industries
TS-036907 — A welding technique that joins two dissimilar metals.
Resistance spot welding (RSW) is critical to automobile manufacturing, with 3,000 to 5,000 spot welds per vehicle. As consumers seek vehicles with better fuel economy, automobile manufacturers have replaced parts built from heavy metals, such as advanced high-strength steel (AHSS), with lighter al…

Method and Device to Monitor & Control Efficiency of the Friction Welding Process
TS-015293 — A device that can be readily attached to inertia or direct drive friction welding equipment to determine energy efficiency in-situ during welding, providing real-time feedback for improving control.
Friction welding is a category of solid-state welding processes that uses frictional heat generation at the weld interface to plasticize the work pieces and produce a metallurgical bond. The welding parameters used in large-scale industrial production are typically determined via trial and error. …

Novel Method for Welding of High-Strength Aluminum Alloys
TS-014735 — A cost-effective method that drastically increases high-strength aluminum alloys' resistance to environmental degradation.
Manufacturers seek low-density, high-strength metals that can withstand environmental stress. High-strength aluminum alloys (AAs) are increasingly used for light-weighting in automotive and aerospace structure applications, but welds with such alloys are susceptible to environmental degradation, w…
