  • Efficient Hydrogen generation for renewable energy storage and transmission

    Efficient Hydrogen generation for renewable energy storage and transmission Within an ongoing Research and Development project new materials and designs have been developed to electrolyse steam at 500 – 600 ºC. The elevated temperature makes the conversion process more efficient by simpli...

  • Combined Tidal Stream/Reversible Hydrogen System for Balanced Renewable Generation

    By coupling the generators with a reversible fuel cell to store the spare energy as hydrogen gas, to be used later when needed, the reversible fuel cell should have good efficiency and reliability, as there are no pumps etc to use power or break down. It is also a simple,

  • Thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) compounds

    We have developed a series of deep blue TADF emitters for OLEDS. The emitters contain both carbazole donors and oxadiazole acceptors to effectively form excitons by a charge trapping mechanism.

  • New luminescent materials for lighting

    The best performing OLED devices are currently based on iridium and platinum emitters. Our new materials, based on luminescent ditopic Pd(0) complexes are the most emissive palladium complexes reported to date and with easily tuneable emmission energies provide a an ideal new family of OLEDs.

  • Supercell diffractive optics for thin film solar cells

    Light absorption in thin films can be strongly enhanced when guided modes supported by the thin films are excited. We present a novel design for diffraction gratings combined with a supercell which shifts energy from low to higher diffraction orders boosting solar cell efficiency.

  • Novel wavelength division multiplexing for on-chip optical interlinks and active optical cables

    Our architecture consists of a single multi-wavelength laser and highly wavelength selective modulators and photodetectors, which eliminates the need for complex multiplexing circuitry. The devices are x100 smaller than those used in other architectures providing space and power saving benefits.

    Expires: Created:
  • Frequency modulated photonic crystal lasers

    Our new SiP+ laser employs a revolutionary method that sees the laser wavelength automatically locked to an ultra-low capacitance PhC resonator that provides direct modulation. This allows transceivers to operate in the 40-1000Gbps range in a simplified and cost-effective manner with an efficient po...

  • Combined light communication and energy harvesting from solar panel receivers

    A technology allowing solar panels to harvest light energy while also acting as the receiver elements of light-based communication links or networks. These self-powered nodes allow networks of communicating devices to be assembled within the Internet of Things, Sensor Network applications, and in po...

  • Optical Illuminator

    The invention addresses the important issue of uniformity of illumination in street lighting. It is a novel, non-imaging optic which can be combined with LEDs to produce illumination uniformity and footprints of various and defined diameters and shapes. This cannot be achieved by conventional opti...

    Expires: Created:
  • Smart Building Management System

    A novel building energy management system has been developed for managing energy usage; heating, cooling, lighting etc. The system is based on a wireless sensor architecture and advanced artificial intelligence network. The system is able to optimise environmental controls based on remote, real-tim...
