An apparatus and method for carbonizing or activating carbon nanofibers, or both carbonizing and activating carbon nanofibers, using separate heating of nanofibers and process gases for increased sample temperature response to reduce production costs and improve process control. In one embodiment, the system includes a reactor tube into which a selected atmosphere can be introduced and which is closed at the ends by flanges. Samples are placed inside the tube on or in a susceptor, which is he…

An objective of the invention is to design and develop an effective method to collect and store heat in a solar collector for delayed release. An embodiment of the invention is directed to an evacuated tube collector, where PCM is placed directly inside the void space of the collector tube, next to the heat pipe. The heat pipe is located with phase change material (PCM) in such a way that its thermal connection with the heat pipe can be switched “ON” to start heat transfer from PCM or “OFF” t…

The present invention provides a method for making a highly efficient and inexpensive solar selective coating. Coating consists of various carbon nanotube sheets composite layers, each performing a specific function by incorporating functional materials and components with proper structure. Joule heating of the described solar selective coating allows for efficient functionality even when solar energy is not available.

A tandem organic light emitting diode (OLED) device comprised of multiple stacked single OLEDs electrically connected in parallel via transparent interlayer is recited herein. Transparent interlayers are coated by charge injection layers in order to enhance the charge injection efficiency and decrease the operation voltage. Transparent nanomaterials, such as carbon nanotube sheets (or graphene, graphene ribbons and similar conductive transparent nano-carbon forms) are used as Interlayers or o…

Solar water heaters are a well-established renewable energy technology that has been widely adopted outside of the United States. Here we propose to significantly improve the evacuated solar tube collectors (ETC) by utilizing the dry-drawable carbon nanotube (CNT) sheets for solar energy absorption and CNT multifunctional nanocomposites with functional layers of heat accumulators and heat transporters. The benefits of the proposed carbon nanotube based solar water heaters is the property of…

The claimed invention uses activated carbon fibers that incorporate porous carbon with a suitable pore size to maximize capacitance. The porous carbon material is prepared using a template, followed by incorporation into a matrix polymer and electrospinning of the mixture. Subsequent thermal treatments retain the fiber form, and a composite carbon fiber incorporating templated porous carbon is attained. The resulting electrode is binder free and 100% electrochemically active. Energy densities…
