Thermochromic (TC) materials can switch solar absorptance (α) based on temperature stimuli. When coatings with TC properties are applied on building envelope surfaces, the amount of solar heat gains can be controlled to reduce the heating and cooling demand of buildings. To date, limited research has been conducted in investigating optimal TC...

Infrared absorption spectroscopy is a powerful analytical tool that enables the identification of molecular species. The sensitivity of this technique, that is strongly limited by the small absorption cross-section of molecular vibration, can be greatly improved by resonant interaction with nano-antennas via the surface-enhanced infrared...

Vanadium dioxide displays thermochromic properties based on its structural phase transition from monoclinic VO2 (M) to rutile VO2 (R) and vice versa, and the accompanying reversible metal-insulator transition. We developed a single layer coating comprising VO2 (M) and SiO2. We applied the coating from an alcoholic solution comprising vanadium(IV...

In this article, we present the results of aging tests of silicon photovoltaic modules with a copper-containing electrode deposited in one-step screen printing method. For front metallization, a mixture of commercial silver paste with copper filler was used, where copper constituted 30% of total paste volume. The filler is based on copper...

The energy market is facing a major transition, in which natural gas and renewable gasses will play an important role. However, changing gas sources and compositions will force the gas transporters, gas engine manufacturers, and gas grid operators to monitor the gas quality in a more intensive way. This leads to the need for lower cost, smaller,...

Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) is an energy source that is becoming more important in energy transition, as the world is facing lower the CO2 emissions and backup sources for wind and solar energy are needed. LNG is becoming a major player not only as fuel for power plants, but also in transport and mobility. However, the composition of LNG varies...

Plastics (bulk, coatings, and glues), like many other commodities, including metal, wood, glass, and ceramics, are of essential importance to the wellbeing of today’s society. This will not be any different in the decades to come. We expect plastics to remain important due to their unique properties and the possibilities for mass production...

Halide perovskites have been gaining considerable attention recently for use in light-emitting applications, due to their bandgap tunability, color purity and low cost fabrication methods. However, current fabrication techniques limit the processing to small-area devices. Here, we show that a facile N 2 gas-quenching technique can be used to...

The optical losses associated with sub-micron absorbers in CIGS solar cells can be reduced by light management techniques. 3-D optical modelling was used to optimize light in-coupling and internal rear reflectance in a 750-nm thick CIGS reference solar cell. At the front side, an effective medium approximation (EMA) approach for describing...

New biobased polyurethane (PU) coatings with high lignin content were developed and characterized in this work. These materials were based on a ?,?-diisocyanate monomer (1,4-bis(4-isocyanato-2-methoxyphenoxy)butane, VA-NCO) obtained from lignin-derived vanillic acid and its further cross-linking reaction with three different nonchemically...

Magnetron sputtering is widely used for deposition of silicon oxynitride (SiOxNy) coatings on glass in large-area applications. Since repeated deposition simulates the factory-scale in-line processing, amorphous aluminum-doped SiOxNy layers with thickness of about 250 nm were deposited by reactive pulsed DC sputtering in a multi-pass process...

Environmental analysis should be performed early in the Research and Development (R&D) phases of new technologies to timely determine potential impact and, thereby, include prevention and minimization of unfavorable ecological impact into the innovation process. Here, we demonstrate the application of anticipatory Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) on...

Damage caused by incidents with transport tanks with compressed liquified gas is amongst the most extreme that can be encountered with transport vessels. This is particularly the case with the Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion (BLEVE), which may occur if such a tank is exposed to fire for a prolonged period. Therefore, the local Dutch LPG...

Potential-induced degradation in n-type modules is typically associated with a surface polarization effect. This paper shows that modifications at the cell level can minimize the potential-induced degradation of modules caused by a polarization effect. As is demonstrated on n-PERT cells, the potentialinduced degradation can be reduced...

In addition to the desired aesthetical properties, a coating is applied to protect against weathering. A coating prevents moisture accumulation in wood by reducing the water uptake into the wood by its barrier function. The studies in the coating permeability has gained interest with the shift towards waterborne coatings, which make coatings...

Nerve agents are among the most toxic substances known to man. Recent events in Syria, Malaysia, and the UK illustrate that the threat of these substances is real and actual. The timely detection and identification of nerve agents is of great importance to facilitate timely decontamination or medical countermeasures. In this work, an effective...

The hydroplasticization of coatings of acrylic copolymers with different amounts of methacrylic acid (MAA) was investigated to clarify the role of carboxylic acid functionalities on the change in polymer mobility due to water uptake. The coating T g as a function of water uptake was studied using dynamic mechanical analysis. The T g 's decreased...
