Microscale Thermochemical Reactor for Production of DME
Technology Description Researchers at OSU have developed a microscale reactor for the efficient gas phase conversion of CO2 and methane to dimethyl ether (DME). The device architecture utilizes millimeter to sub-millimeter characteristic lengths and novel pillar features to achieve rapid diffusion and heat conduction, improving yield and thermal ef...

Atomically Smooth Nanoporous Alumina Thin Films
Technology Description This technology is a novel method for producing near-atomically smooth, porous alumina thin films by spin coating, in ambient conditions, using aqueous precursors. By utilizing this method, the refractive index of the alumina thin film is tunable from 1.56 to 1.26 by the introduction of a nonionic surfactant in the aqueous pr...
