In this method, a lower alcohol is oxidized directly (i.e. without reformation) to CO.sub.2 +H.sub.2 O at the anode of a fuel cell, and a reducible gas (e.g. air or O.sub.2) is reduced at the cathode. High, reasonably constant current densities at low over-voltages can be obtained. The electrolyte i ...

Michael E Read, John F Davis III, Michael M Micci: Microwave-driven plasma spraying apparatus and method for spraying. Physical Sciences, Testa Hurwitz & Thibeault, October 26, 1999: US05973289 (66 worldwide citation)

A microwave-driven plasma spraying apparatus can be utilized for uniform high-powered spraying. The plasma sprayer is constructed without a dielectric discharge tube, so very high microwave powers can be utilized. Moreover, the plasma sprayer is relatively free of contamination caused by deposits of ...
