Purification of Gas with Liquid Ionic Compounds
Background: Researchers at Notre Dame pioneered the use of ionic liquids for use in gas separation. And this work continues today, with an eye towards applications in natural gas purification, effluent treatment, pre-combustion separations, supported liquid membranes, and gas drying. Technology: Nitrogen containing heterocyclic cations have ...

Rapid charge solid state Li-ion batteries
Who doesn’t want rapid-charging, safe lithium batteries? They are used in power tools, medical devices, aerospace, bicycles and cars, to name only a few applications. But, charging is normally better when done slowly. Now, researchers at the University of Notre Dame have conceived of a rapid-charging solid state lithium ion battery that would...

Functional Filtration Membranes Derived from Self-assembled Multiblock Polymers
Technology: Membrane separation technologies are used heavily in a number of chemical industries; however, current commercial membranes do not allow for highly selective, high-throughput processing. This invention outlines a method to improve the design of these chemical separations devices in order to create more selective membranes for the hi...

Wind Turbine Performance Improvement, Unsteady Load and Acoustic Level Attenuation Using On-Blade Single Dielectric Barrier Discharge (SDBD) Plasma Actuators
The University of Notre Dame Center for Flow Physics and Control (FlowPAC) has pioneered the development of plasma actuators for aerodynamic control. Patented technology for the application of plasma-enhanced flow control of wind turbines will translate into increased capacity, normalized output, decreased structure weight, and decreased cost. A pr...

Truck Tractor and Trailer Aerodynamic Drag Reduction using Single Dielectric Barrier Discharge (SDBD) Plasma Actuators
Background: The drag produced by class 8 trucks requires two-thirds of the engine’s output to maintain a highway speed. To put in another way, a large portion of the power consumed by these types of vehicles is spent in overcoming aerodynamic drag. The reduction of this drag force would benefit vehicle characteristics, such as fuel efficien...
