Safer Energetic Materials
Researchers at Idaho National Laboratory have developed energetic materials that are capable of delivering powerful explosive energy, yet demonstrate unprecedented improvements for safer storage, handling, transportation and operation. INL investigators are also working to increase the safety of ignition devices to ensure energetics detonate only when required.
Ghost Train Generator
Fermilab has developed a simple, inexpensive, effective device to reduce collision incidents related to vehicles stuck on railroad grade crossings. The device simulates continuity of locomotives or other rolling stock from rail to rail, closing the existing DC track circuit and mimicking the presence of a train.
Boron Based Special Materials
Boron is the basis of two patented technologies developed by Jefferson Lab. One is a boron based nanotube material capable of maintaining its unique properties in extreme environments and another is a construction material that uses the neutron shielding capability of boron for applications in nuclear power and radiation therapy.
PEM Fuel Cell Bundle (multi-lab IP bundle - LabBridge IP Bundling Program)
29 nine proton exchange membrane fuel cells technologies from five different National Labs are available to form bundles to collectively increase their value proposition for the potential licensees or collaborators. Technologies fall into 4 categories, (i) fuel cell electrocatalysts, (ii) membrane electrode assembly, (iii) fuel processor, and (iv) bipolar plates.
