  • Patent number: 10625446
    Abstract: A high-temperature hot-pressing molding machine includes a mold unit, a heating, unit disposed to heat the mold unit, a heat insulating unit including a surrounding insulating member to enclose the mold unit and two insulating layers disposed on two opposite sides of the mold unit to obstruct heat radiation and conduction from the mold unit, a heat dissipating unit disposed on the insulating layers, a cooling unit disposed on the heat dissipating unit, and a vacuum unit disposed to form a vacuum space. Under a vacuum environment, with the heat insulating unit defining a heat zone containing the mold unit, other component parts adjacent to the heat zone can be prevented from damage in a high temperature operation.

  • Patent number: 10361420
    Abstract: Methods for making lead-carbon coupling, lead-carbon electrode sheets, and a lead-carbon battery are revealed. The coupling methods consist of steps of assembling the carbon material that contains oxygen functional groups or metal precursors and lead material in contact with each other and then heating the assembled lead-carbon pair to form lead oxides or metal carbides as a bridge to form coupled lead-carbon interface with high electrochemical and mechanical stability. This coupled lead-carbon structure is applied to form lead-carbon electrode sheets and is further used as electrode sheets of lead-carbon batteries by lead welding.

  • Patent number: 7963148
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a gas sensor made of field effect transistor based on ZnO nanowires (ZnO-FET) which operates according to the principle of metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) and has a charge carrier channel made of ZnO nanowires between source and drain. The gas sensor device disclosed in the present invention has three electrodes-gate, source and drain, so that it is different from the known gas sensor device which has only two electrodes-cathode and anode. The ZnO nanowires as charge channel in the gas sensor device of the present invention is an n-type semiconductor with high specific surface area, and its electric resistance can be controlled by the gate bias, so that the capability of the present device for sensing gas can be largely promoted.

  • Patent number: 7247376
    Abstract: A powder containing Fe—Ni nano-particles and a method for manufacturing the powder, wherein the powder containing Fe—Ni nano-particles includes a carrier and Fe—Ni nano-particles. The carrier is a ceramic particle with size of about micro-meter (?m). Fe and Ni atoms of the Fe—Ni nano-particles exist simultaneously on the surface of the carrier by electroless plating technology. The atomic ratio of the Fe and Ni atoms can be controlled by changing the relative concentration of the plating solution and the plating condition. The method for manufacturing the powder containing Fe—Ni nano-particles includes the following steps: preparation process, sensitization process, activation process, electroless plating process, and after-deposition process. The manufactured powder has small volume and large surface area. The contact chance between Fe/Ni bimetal and chlorinated organic substance is largely increased. It can be used to treat various environmental pollutants or for some catalytic reactions.
