  • Patent number: 9627641
    Abstract: The device for charge carrier modulation is a current-controlled component, which has semiconductor layers arranged on top of each other. The organic semiconductor layers arranged on top of each other are an electron transport layer, which is arranged between a first and a second hole transport layer, and/or a hole transport layer, which is arranged between a first and a second electron transport layer. The respective central layer is the modulation layer having a contact for a modulation voltage. By applying a modulation voltage, a modulation current flow is generated over the modulation layer. The modulation current flow influences the component current flow which flows from the first into the second hole or electron transport layer via the respective modulation layer.

  • Patent number: 9624590
    Abstract: A method recovers an electropositive metal from a metal carbonate. In the method, hydrogen and halogen are combusted to form hydrogen halide. The solid metal carbonate is converted into metal chloride by a gaseous hydrogen halide. In an electrolysis, the metal chloride is decomposed into metal and halogen. The halogen produced in the electrolysis is led out of the electrolysis for combusting. Preferably, the hydrogen halide is produced by combusting the hydrogen and the halogen and the metal carbonate is converted into metal chloride in a fluidized bed reactor. Preferably, lithium is used as the metal.
