11586 – The University of Central Florida invention comprises methods and structures for new optical components that may embed the following: (1) anti‐reflection (AR) materials during an additive manufacturing process, (2) monitoring elements for thermal control, or (3) optical components to enhance functionality and performance.
33957 – New detection system can scan gas mixtures from a distance and provide quantifiable data about specific chemicals in the mixture. Researchers from UCF and the United States Navy have invented an optical detection system designed to identify and quantify the chemicals in a gas mixture from a distance and in real time. The new system can provide a 3D mapping/readout of the mixture’s... Read More
33718 – New low-cost manufacturing process produces high-performing intermediate band solar cells. UCF researchers have invented a novel additive manufacturing system and methods for thin film fabrication specifically useful in fabricating higher performance solar photovoltaic (PV) cells at a fraction of the cost of traditional PV cell manufacturing methods. Today’s commercial solar cells are... Read More
