Alfred University Key Developments
Alfred University, General Electric Company Sign contract for Battery Research
Apr 27 12
Alfred University (AU) and General Electric Company have signed a contract to develop a new generation of sodium metal halide batteries. The batteries are targeted at heavy-duty transportation and stationary power quality applications like hybrid locomotives and back-up power for telecommunication sites. This collaborative research effort will significantly enhance battery reliability, cycle life and performance. The batteries will be developed by a consortium including AU and led by GE Global Research (GEGR).
Alfred University to Develop Novel Technology Under Contract with Group4 Labs, Inc
Mar 19 12
Alfred University (AU) has been contracted to develop sacrificial substrates to support Gallium-nitride-on-Diamond technology to improve efficiencies in the lighting industry and advance the sensing and communication industries. Group4 Labs Inc. has contracted with Alfred University (AU) researchers to develop a sacrificial substrate for diamond coatings. S.K. Sundaram and Scott Misture, who are Inamori Professors of materials science in the Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering at AU, will oversee the project. Misture and Sundaram are to develop a substrate material for Group4 Lab's novel technology which that combines diamond and semiconductors to extract heat rapidly, efficiently, passively, and cost-effectively. The micron-sized diamond coating is first applied to a sacrificial substrate, according to Sundaram. When the sacrificial substrate is removed, the diamond coating will then serve as the substrate for further processing of the semiconductor coating. Once completed, this technology will be used in such applications as solid state lighting, sensing, and communication industries. Misture and Sundaram believe that cordierite glass-ceramics are most suitable as a diamond coating substrate because the two materials are well matched with regard to thermal expansion as well as chemical and thermal stability under the processing conditions of interest to Group4Labs Inc. The 'sacrificial' substrate must also be inexpensive because it is disposed of during processing. Previously, diamonds had been deposited on substrates with different thermal expansion coefficients, which resulted in 'mis-match failure and thermal cracking'. The main challenge is matching the thermal expansion coefficients of the substrate and the coating.
