Project Detail

Cooling efficiency is of the upmost importance in several crucial technological applications, e.g. fuel cells and battery cooling, hybrid airplanes, drones and satellite thermal management. They have a value of several billions dollars around the world, with a critical contribution to global CO2 production. A promising approach to cope with the always higher heat fluxes requested is represented by phase changing systems which exploit the large latent heat associated with phase change to remove the heat from the hot surface. A robust and effective strategy is to deploy boiling. The basic underlying idea is simple: form vapour bubbles in a liquid in contact with the hot surface and evacuate them through a condenser. Its implementation, however, faces a number of challenges and requires solution to several fundamental problems. In any practical application the boiler efficiency depends on parameters, such as the frequency of bubble nucleation, their size, and the release rate from the hot surface. However, how to precisely control them is still not clear. BOIL-MODE-ON aims at addressing the underlying mechanism of bubble inception and departure during boiling, defining possible new routes and solutions both on the modelling and the practical implementation side. Dr. Magaletti will apply a cutting-edge methodology he developed in the context of cavitation phenomena, based on a mesoscale numerical modelling of the liquid-vapour system embedding thermal fluctuations. It will shed light on the effects of surface wettability and dissolved gas, which are two of the most complex and not yet understood topics in this field. A specific campaign of experiments will complement and support the analysis. The recognised experience of Prof. Marengo, who will supervise this project, on the experimental techniques for boiling guarantees the highest level of synergy and knowledge transfer with the applicant, further developing his research skill-set and enhancing his career prospective.

The vision is to build molecule-based magnetic coordination cages and their related 3D frameworks possessing permanent cavities capable of hosting magnetic, redox- and photo-active guests for the construction of controllable multifunctional materials with potential application in information storage, quantum computation and molecular spintronics. The specific objectives are: (1) To build coordination cages and molecule-based framework materials possessing permanent cavities with both diamagnetic and paramagnetic metal centres. (2) To employ theoretical modelling to predict the appropriate host-guest combinations. (3) To employ solution-based techniques, particularly NMR spectroscopy, to examine the host-guest chemistry of the diamagnetic cages and frameworks, in tandem with theory to inform what paramagnetic host-guest capsules and frameworks should be targeted. (4) To spectroscopically investigate the solution host-guest behaviour of paramagnetic cages. (5) To construct empty magnetic coordination capsules and molecule-based materials, to elucidate their solid-state structures via single crystal X-ray crystallography, and to investigate their magnetic behavior with a battery of techniques. (6) To examine the magnetic behaviour of cages and framework materials containing redox-active/radical linker ligands in the host framework. (7) To examine the magnetic behaviour of cages and frameworks encapsulating redox/photo-active/magnetic guests. (8) To examine the magnetic properties of cages and frameworks encapsulating guests that can accept numerous electrons and to monitor the effects that a variable number of electric charges placed on the guest has on the static and dynamic magnetic properties of the host. (9) To explore the controlled switching (on/off) of the spin-spin interactions between host and guest via the charge state of the guest. (10) To computationally model all magnetic and spectroscopic data, and to elucidate magneto-structural correlations.

Multifunctional Hierarchically-Structured Systems for Energy Storage Devices
Company Name IMPERIAL COLLEGE OF SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY AND MEDICINE
Funded By 38
Country United Kingdom , Western Europe
Project Value 21 Million
Project Detail

The widespread use of portable devices, as well as the electrification of transport, require a new generation of energy storage devices that deliver higher specific performance than Li-ion batteries. By designing multifunctional materials that combine structural and electrochemical energy storage, an improvement in gravimetric and volumetric efficiency can be achieved. The research aim of this project is to develop Energy Storage Devices based on multifunctional hierarchically-structured systems. The success of the project will be driven by the combination of two strong and complementary areas of expertise: At Imperial and IMDEA, the fellow will work for 24 months in groups with an extensive experience of carbon and inorganic nanomaterials synthesis, modification, characterisation, and application, particularly on hierarchical systems. On the other hand, she will bring her own experience in developing and characterising electrodes and electrolytes for a wide range of batteries as well as supercapacitors. The interdisciplinary intersection of new materials chemistry, with electrochemical device engineering, and structural composite mechanisms, will provide a unique opportunity for rapid progress in both science and technology. The structural energy storage devices will be developed from technology readiness level 1 and to 4, in order to accelerate direct impact on industrial applications, for example in the automotive and electronics sectors. During the two-year project, the fellow and supervisor will disseminate their results to Industry, Academia and General Public through patents and articles in podcasts, newspapers and scientific journals. From the start, an individual career development plan for the fellow will be developed with the supervisor and will be reviewed regularly during the fellowship. Prof. Shaffer’s talents for both research and teaching will inspire the fellow to launch ambitious research and educational projects early in her academic career.

A new approach to design wireless receivers
Company Name UNIVERSITEIT TWENTE
Funded By 38
Country Netherlands The , Western Europe
Project Value 2 Million
Project Detail

While most analog functions have been taken over by their digital counterparts, radio receivers today are complex analog electronic circuits. They include amplifier circuits to provide amplification of the weak antenna signals. Ideally the amplifiers provide linear gain, but unfortunately the amplifiers exploiting transistors are inherently nonlinear, causing fundamental problems if large unwanted signals are received simultaneously with weak desired signals. This is why a radio receiver is a complex combination of many analog circuits: filters, mixers and amplifiers are placed between the antenna and the analog-to-digital converter (ADC), making receivers bulky, expensive and consume a lot of energy. The breakthrough concept of this program is to completely refrain from active linear amplifiers and thus have no active linear gain in a receiver. This way we avoid the fundamental problems in amplifiers and we minimize the analog hardware between the antenna and ADC, thus drastically simplifying the radio architecture. This program aims at connecting the ADC to the antenna, with just a separation by a so-called “N-path filter”. As pioneered amongst others by myself, N-path filters are simple structures without amplification and have recently become popular for wireless applications after being “forgotten” for many decades. Research work will focus on: 1) an N-path filter antenna interface, with extreme selectivity; 2) an ultra-low-noise ADC being able to convert the unamplified antenna signal; 3) a digital reflector to reflect unwanted signals arriving at the antenna; 4) precise timing circuits with far-beyond state-of-the-art timing accuracy to clock the N-path filter. I will focus on two different application areas: high-end receivers for high data rates in a crowded spectrum and ultra-low power receivers for (battery-less) sensor networks. My goal is to design fully integrated receivers on a chip, without the bulky and expensive external components needed today.

China Distributed Renewable Energy Scale-Up Project
Company Name Implementing Agency: National Energy Administration (NEA)
Funded By 106
Country China , Eastern Asia
Project Value 76 Million
Project Detail

Project Development Objective (PDO) 15. The PDO is to promote the scale-up of distributed renewable energy and GHG emission reduction in China through policy interventions and pilots. 16. The PDO indicators are as follows: • PDO Indicator 1: Incremental installed capacity of DRE enabled by the project. Baseline: Nil. End target: 10 GW.9 • PDO Indicator 2: Incremental avoided GHG emissions enabled by the project. Baseline: Nil. End target: 7 million metric tons carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent. 10 • PDO Indicator 3: New policies for DRE developed with project support. Baseline: Nil. End target: Seven. • PDO Indicator 4: New plans or targets for DRE at provincial or national level developed with project support. Baseline: Nil. End target: Four. • PDO Indicator 5: Innovative, scalable new use-cases 11 for DRE developed and piloted under the project. Baseline: Nil. Target: Six. • PDO Indicator 6: Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of market perceptions toward DRE in sample areas. Baseline: No M&E system in place. Year 1 target: Initial M&E system in place and sample baseline metrics established. Mid-term target: M&E system in place and trial measurement of key indicators in sample areas. End target: M&E system refined with complete measurement of key indicators in sample areas and improved values relative to baseline. 17. The PDO indicators are consistent with GEF guidelines. Target values are informed by national-level modelling by the Government (Energy Research Institute/ERI and China National Renewable Energy Center/CNREC 2018) which specifically measures distributed PV. Equivalent values for other types of distributed energy resources are not available but will be estimated as part of the project’s M&E system. For this project, the DRE excludes hydropower. B. Project Components 18. The project comprises GEF grant funding of US$7,278,600 from 2019 to 2023 for policy support, pilot support, and capacity building and project management. 12 Although it is a stand-alone project, it is jointly designed, and will be implemented in parallel, with the Bank-supported R&B project to support DRE development in China. The project has a dual focus on national and subnational activities. While it will support the NEA on policy and regulations for DRE at the national level, activities in all areas of China will be considered–subject to selection criteria (described in Annex 3) and with particular attention to local government commitment for DRE. Government agencies in several provinces (Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Guangdong, Henan, and Shanxi) have expressed interest and proposed potential activities during preparation. 19. Component 1: Policy Support (GEF US$2.0m, counterpart funding US$2.0m). This component will involve carrying out selected studies to inform and develop policies and regulations at national or provincial level to scaling up DRE. This may include: (a) grid access to allow direct contracting between the DRE generators and end users; (b) pricing schemes to account for the economic value of DRE to different actors at given times and locations; (c) standards and certification schemes such as for safety, security, technical parameters, and building-integrated solar PV; (d) urban planning that incorporates DREs at city and township levels; (e) information and communication mechanisms, including technology platforms, access, privacy, and cybersecurity risk management; (f) battery storage, particularly that used for DRE, related policy, regulation, and standards, especially on safety, environmental management, and reuse and disposal to support and leverage the investments in DRE and battery storage under the R&B project.
