Innovation Alerts and Spotlights:

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.

Negative Photochromic Material with Tunable Properties
A simple way to create material chemistry that can switch from colored to colorless under defined illumination and can be returned to a colored state using a heat. The material chemistry can be adjusted to control its behavior in response to light or heat resulting in a highly customizable material.

Integrated Photonic Devices for ultrahigh-speed, space-division multiplexing optical coherence tomography
Label-free and non-destructive imaging technologies with micron-scale resolutions and hundreds of frames per second imaging speed are greatly desirable for biomedical applications.

Solid-State Ultracapacitor for Improved Energy Storage
NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center has developed a solid-state ultracapacitor using a novel nanocomposite, dielectric material. The materials design is based on the internal barrier layer capacitance (IBLC) concept, and it uses novel dielectric and metallic conductive ink formulations.
