Transient Li-ion batteries based on polymeric constituents are presented, exhibiting a twofold increase in the potential and approximately three orders of magnitude faster transiency rate compared to other transient systems reported in the literature. The battery takes advantage of a close variation of the active materials used in conventional Li-ion batteries and can achieve and maintain a potential of >2.5 V. All materials are deposited form polymer-based emulsions and the transiency is achieved through a hybrid approach of redispersion of insoluble, and dissolution of soluble components in approximately 30 min. The presented proof of concept has paramount potentials in military and hardware security applications.

Ultra-fast charge exchange spectroscopy for turbulent ion temperature fluctuation measurements on the DIII-D tokamak (invited)
Uzun Kaymak, İlker Ümit; McKee, G. R. (2012-10-01)
A novel two-channel, high throughput, high efficiency spectrometer system has been developed to measure impurity ion temperature and toroidal velocity fluctuations associated with long-wavelength turbulence and other plasma instabilities. The spectrometer observes the emission of the n = 8-7 hydrogenic transition of C+5 ions (lambda(air) = 529.06 nm) resulting from charge exchange reactions between deuterium heating beams and intrinsic carbon. Novel features include a large, prism-coupled high-dispersion, v...
Energy Conversion Efficiency of Single-Phase Transformerless PV Inverters
Özkan, Ziya; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2013-11-30)
In grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) applications, power semiconductor energy conversion efficiency of PV inverters is one of the major figures of merits to evaluate and compare these systems as the payback ratio of the overall system is tightly related to the energy conversion efficiency and as semiconductor losses comprise the majority of energy losses. In order to wisely choose the PV inverter topology and associated semiconductors, analytic evaluation of semiconductor losses of topologies is required. Fu...
Hierarchical multi-component nanofiber separators for lithium polysulfide capture in lithium-sulfur batteries: an experimental and molecular modeling study

Sulfur (S) has been considered as a promising cathode candidate for lithium batteries due to its high theoretical specific capacity and energy density. However, the low active material utilization, severe capacity fading, and short lifespan of the resultant lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries have greatly hindered their practicality. In this work, a multi-functional polyacrylonitrile/silica nanofiber membrane with an integral ultralight and thin multi-walled carbon nanotube sheet is presented and it provides a ...
Thermally stimulated currents in layered Ga4SeS3 semiconductor
Aytekin, S; Yuksek, NS; Goktepe, M; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Aydinli, A (Wiley, 2004-10-01)
Thermally stimulated current (TSC) measurements are carried out on nominally undoped Ga4SeS3 layered semiconductor samples with the cur-rent flowing along the c-axis in the temperature range of 10 to 150 K. The results are analyzed according to various methods, such as curve fitting, initial rise and Chen's methods, which seem to be in good agreement with each other. Experimental evidence is found for the presence of three trapping centers in Ga4SeS3 with activation energies of 70, 210 and 357 meV. The calc...
Equivalent Circuit Models for Split-ring Resonator Arrays
Yasar-Orten, P.; Ekmekci, E.; Sayan, Gönül (2010-07-08)
In this study, a square-shaped single-ring SRR unit cell is modeled by using a suitable two-port resonant circuit representation that accounts for the conductor loss and dielectric loss effects as well. Capacitive and inductive coupling effects between adjacent SRR unit cells are also described by the two-port equivalent circuit approach. Finally, the resonance frequency of an infinitely long SRR array is estimated using its equivalent circuit model and compared to the value of the resonance frequency obtai...
