Elias K Stefanakos, D Yogi Goswami, Shekhar Bhansali: Rectenna solar energy harvester. University of South Florida, Robert Varkonyi, Smith & Hopen P A, February 14, 2012: US08115683 (19 worldwide citation)

A rectenna is a combination of an antenna and a rectifier (diode). Because of limitations in nanotechnology fabrication, it has not been possible to develop rectennas that can operate in the visible frequency range. Current work has gone to producing rectennas that operate in the far infrared (therm ...

A process and device to capture of CO2 at its originating source, such as a power plant, is disclosed. Absorbent material is recharged by desorbing CO2, so that it may be sequestered or used in another application. Continual recharging results in loss of absorbent surface area, due to pore plugging ...

Manoj Kumar Ram, Chand K Jotshi, Elias K Stefanakos, Dharendra Yogi Goswami: Method of encapsulating a phase change material with a metal oxide. University of South Florida, Robert J Varkonyi, Smith & Hopen P A, November 15, 2016: US09493695 (1 worldwide citation)

Storage systems based on latent heat storage have high-energy storage density, which reduces the footprint of the system and the cost. However, phase change materials (PCMs), such as NaNO3, NaCl, KNO3, have very low thermal conductivities. To enhave the storage of PCMs, macroencapsulation of PCMs wa ...
