  • Patent number: 10672000
    Abstract: Computer bypass systems and methods using a customer portal of a core account computer system to bypass a core account provider computer system are disclosed. One method comprises receiving at a loan computer system a loan request from an electronic client device and obtaining core account access information comprising a core account provider identifier and core account authentication credentials of the client for a customer portal of the core account computer system. The loan computer system can use the core account authentication credentials to access the core account customer portal and obtain a core account balance and a maximum allowable loan limit. The loan computer system can provide machine readable instructions to render a graphical user interface indicating the maximum allowable loan limit and can receive a requested loan amount, which is used to transfer funds from the core fund to create a loan fund.

  • Publication number: 20200099043
    Abstract: This invention relates to particulate electroactive materials consisting of a plurality of composite particles, wherein the composite particles comprise a plurality of silicon nanoparticles dispersed within a conductive carbon matrix. The particulate material comprises 40 to 65 wt % silicon, at least 6 wt % and less than 20% oxygen, and has a weight ratio of the total amount of oxygen and nitrogen to silicon in the range of from 0.1 to 0.45 and a weight ratio of carbon to silicon in the range of from 0.1 to 1. The particulate electroactive materials are useful as an active component of an anode in a metal ion battery.

  • Patent number: 10570852
    Abstract: An exhaust section of a gas turbine engine includes an exhaust plug defining a plurality of exhaust plug apertures circumferentially spaced from each other. Also included is an exhaust nozzle radially offset from the exhaust plug defining an exhaust pathway between the exhaust plug and the exhaust nozzle. Further included is an exhaust plug liner having a non-uniform outer surface axially aligned with the exhaust plug apertures. The exhaust plug liner is rotatable relative to the exhaust plug between a first position and a second position to selectively change a cross-sectional area of the exhaust pathway during thrust reversal operation to reduce an amount of reverse thrust necessary.

  • Patent number: 10508335
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to a process for preparing particulate materials having high electrochemical capacities that are suitable for use as anode active materials in rechargeable metal-ion batteries. In one aspect, the disclosure provides a process for preparing a particulate material comprising a plurality of composite particles. The process includes providing particulate porous carbon frameworks comprising micropores and/or mesopores, wherein the porous carbon frameworks have a D50 particle diameter of at least 50 ?m; depositing an electroactive material selected from silicon and alloys thereof into the micropores and/or mesopores of the porous carbon frameworks using a chemical vapor infiltration process in a fluidized bed reactor, to provide intermediate particles; and comminuting the intermediate particles to provide said composite particles.

  • Publication number: 20190221690
    Abstract: A perovskite-based solar cell comprising a transparent electrode disposed on a buffer layer that protects the perovskite from damage during the deposition of the electrode is disclosed. The buffer material is deposited using either low-temperature atomic-layer deposition, chemical-vapor deposition, or pulsed chemical-vapor deposition. In some embodiments, the perovskite material is operative as an absorption layer in a multi-cell solar-cell structure. In some embodiments, the perovskite material is operative as an absorption layer in a single junction solar cell structure.

  • Publication number: 20140060519
    Abstract: A method of generating steam for use in an industrial process is disclosed. The industrial process may for example be power generation or desalination. The method comprises: (a) pressurising a working fluid liquid comprising water to a first pressure; (b) heating the working fluid liquid to a temperature substantially equal to the saturation temperature of the working fluid liquid at the first pressure; and (c) flash evaporating the working fluid liquid to generate steam. The pressurised working fluid liquid is heated in step (b) by direct heating in a solar radiation absorption device. Also disclosed is an apparatus for generating steam for use in an industrial process.

  • Patent number: 7756467
    Abstract: A wireless communication device includes a Near Field Communication (NFC) interface, a transceiver, and a controller. The NFC interface receives data related to multimedia content from an external NFC tag responsive to establishing an NFC link with the NFC tag. Based on the received data, the controller establishes a communication link with a multimedia server via a wireless communication network, and controls the multimedia server to download information associated with the multimedia content to a user-specified destination device.
