Hydrogen-on-Demand (HOD) System for Fuel Cell Portable Power Applications
The lack of hydrogen infrastructure has been the major barrier to fuel cell commercialisation, especially for portable applications. Some companies offer hydrogen solutions based on liquid sodium borohydride. These commercial solutions, however, have some drawbacks. Sodium borohydride solution faces problems, such as, precious catalyst with short lifespan, leakage, orientation issues, complex maintenance and impurities in the hydrogen generated. The impurities in hydrogen would accumulate in the anode chamber of a polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) and deactivate the electro-catalysis of hydrogen oxidation reactions, resulting in system breakdown. The limitations of these commercial products highlighted the need for a hydrogen-on-demand system that satisfies the U.S department of energy's (DOE) standards in terms of system weight, volume, cost and efficiency. The hydrogen-on-demand (HOD) system developed by the technology provider, has the attributes of ease of control, good handling safety, full hydrolysis of NaBH4, low cost catalyst with durable lifespan and high energy density. The HOD system could possibly unify the PEMFC applications by offering common hydrogen platform, and thereby increasing the customers’ flexibility in choosing different products without getting tied to proprietary hydrogen solution. This would help to penetrate and grow the consumer electronics and lifestyle market that is currently dominated by batteries.
Closed-Loop Automatic Frequency Control of Wireless Power Transfer
This technology has been developed in response to the state-of-the-art wireless power transfer systems, especially, in response to a need that has not been fully solved by current wireless power transfer systems. Magnetic resonance coupling is used to extend the effective charging range of inductive coupling from only a few millimeters to several centimeters, or even several feet. However, the sensitivity to operating frequency becomes highly pronounced with resonant coupling, and a theoretical optimum efficiency can only be achieved at one fixed antenna distance called critical coupling. At closer spacings, the efficiency will drop significantly due to a shift in the resonance frequency from over-coupling. Foreign conductive object proximity will also shift the resonance frequency and lower the efficiency. Accordingly, this technology was developed to track the resonance frequency and maintain high overall efficiency in the event of any shift in resonance frequency.

Embedding Carbon Nanomaterial onto Polymeric Powders for Improved Additive Manufacturing
A method was developed to produce carbon nanomaterial-reinforced polymeric composites in a powder form, which are applicable in conventional powder-based additive manufacturing (AM) techniques such as such as laser sintering or powder extrusion.It was shown that the use of such composite powders enhances sintering behaviour during AM over virgin polymer powders, resulting in improved sintered product properties. This method opens up the possibility of using conventional polymers that once had limited processability in laser sintering due to inferior mechanical and thermal propertiesThrough the control and tuning of formulations and compositions of the composite powders during manufacturing, allowing the thermal and electrical conductance of composites can be adjusted by varying the loading percentage of conductive fillers and the types of surface functionalization. This provides for an adjustable sintering behaviour and finished product property.
