  • Publication number: 20070029972
    Abstract: A storage voltage of a battery pack is controlled with control electronics. The storage voltage of a battery pack is sensed, and a discharge mechanism is triggered if the storage voltage is within a predetermined range of voltage, to thereby adjust the storage voltage of the battery pack to below the predetermined range of voltage, or if the storage voltage is at or above a predetermined voltage, to thereby adjust the storage voltage of the battery pack to below the predetermined voltage. Control electronics sense a storage voltage of a battery pack and trigger a discharge mechanism if the storage voltage is within a predetermined range of voltage, to thereby adjust the storage voltage of the battery pack to below the predetermined range of voltage, or if the storage voltage is at or above a predetermined voltage, to thereby adjust the storage voltage of the battery pack to below the predetermined voltage. The control electronics are coupled to an electronic device and a battery pack.

  • Patent number: 6042805
    Abstract: A new method for synthesising an essentially V.sub.2 O.sub.5 -free vanadium oxide having a mean vanadium oxidation state of at least +4 but lower than +5 from NH.sub.4 VO.sub.3 is disclosed. By this method NH.sub.4 VO.sub.3 is heated to a reaction temperature sufficient for thermal decomposition of NH.sub.4 VO.sub.3, and at said reaction temperature, the pressure is kept on at least 0.5 MPa. The method enables production of single-phase V.sub.6 O.sub.13, single-phase VO.sub.2 as well as any mixture thereof in a remarkably simple manner, as it primarily involves careful control of temperature and pressure conditions. The synthesis method of the invention can thus be easily scaled up to any industrial requirement.

  • Patent number: 5958573
    Abstract: An electroluminescent device is disclosed which has an electron conductor fabricated from a stable low electron affinity substance in combination with an emitting species and a hole conductor. The hole conductor and the electron conductor transport to opposed sides of the emitting species holes and electrons respectively that cause the emitting species to undergo a quantum change of state and generate light. In one embodiment the electron conductor is comprised of a plurality of structured particles, each in electrical communication with each other, where the plurality of structured particles are small enough so as their properties deviate from the bulk properties of the substance from which the structured particles are fabricated. In this embodiment the plurality of structured particles are also crystalline in nature. The plurality of structured particles are also in contact with an emitting species and act as an electron conductor.
