Over 100 papers selected from presentations and reviewed by peers discuss such topics as synthesizing and characterizing a novel liquid crystalline polymer bearing azobenzene, an infrared imaging system based on liquid-crystal thermo-optic effects, the microwave-assisted synthesis and mesomorphic properties of novel unsymmetric imidazolium as ionic liquid crystals, the electroluminescence of naturally oxidized polypyrrole, and improving the open circuit voltage of amorphous silicon solar cells by treating the p layer with hydrogen plasma.
The system's simulation engine downloads data from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) Solar Advisor Model database defining key parameters - open circuit voltage (Voc), short circuit current (Isc) and maximum power point voltage (Vmpp) at 25o C and 1000 W/m2 irradiance - so that the I-V curve can be calculated according to a standard solar cell model for virtually any fill factor or solar material.
PolyFuel also noted that water crossover (EOD) is unchanged from the 62-micron membrane and remains less than one-half of competing fluorocarbon membranes, while methanol crossover at open circuit voltage (OCV) now stands at approximately 57 mA/cm squared -- slightly higher than previous levels, but still "significantly" below that of fluorocarbon membranes.
A maximum open circuit voltage of 80 VDC delivers better starting performance for all welding processes.
