KU researchers have invented a high-pressure reactor equipped with an internal ultrasonic mixer that is useful for preparing nanomaterials and for conducting reactions with ozone and other reactive gases. The apparatus facilitates the use of supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) as a solvent, allowing the advantages of the solvent properties of the supercritical fluid and the agitation achievable using ultrasonic energy.
This is a novel seedless floating growth technique for synthesis of a variety of hybrid nanostructures on graphene, primarily for electronic and optoelectronic applications.
A multifunctional photovoltaic-battery (PVB) which represents a new-concept integrated PVB device as a novel power source for photoelectron conversion and energy storage within one single device.
KU researchers have developed a novel apparatus and associated method for the in situ formation of multi-layer thin film structures using atomic layer deposition (ALD) and ultra-high vacuum (UHV) physical/chemical vapor deposition.
