Atmospheric Aerosol Sampling Systems

Atmospheric Aerosol Sampling Systems

Creare is developing a low-power atmospheric aerosol sampling system that employs electrostatic precipitation for the Department of Energy (DOE). One application of this system of particular interest to the DOE is for sampling radionuclides. Collecting radionuclide aerosols from the atmosphere and measuring the isotopic composition is a well-accepted method for detecting, locating, and identifying uranium- […]

Making Batteries Safer

Making Batteries Safer

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are excellent electrical energy storage devices for commercial and military platforms, but as demonstrated in some small consumer electronics, they can suffer catastrophic loss. One can imagine the damage potential in larger systems. To realize the benefits of these batteries in applications like electric and hybrid electric vehicles, directed energy weapons, and […]
