Making Alma work for you: optimize service at the Colorado School of Mines

Laura Guy & John Larson
Having successfully migrated to Alma last year, the Colorado School of Mines wanted to get the most out of their shiny new Library Management System, and so six months after going live decided to take advantage of the new Optimization Service offered by Ex Libris. Come learn about this exciting and important new Service, why the Library decided to embark upon such an adventure, the ways staff prepared for traveling this route, and how Mines...

Incorporation of silicon nanoparticles into silicon based solar cells

Jann Grovogui, Chito Kendrick & Reuben T. Collins
In this project, silicon based solar cells were developed using active layers that consisted of Amorphous Silicon as well as Silicon Nanoparticles (Silicon Quantum Dots). The ultimate goal of this project was to fabricate a working solar cell with an active layer that incorporated Silicon Nanoparticles in an attempt to improve cell functionality.

Energy optimization strategies in a sequencing batch membrane bioreactor

Elliot McCandless, Jason Coontz, Rudy Maltos, Kate Newhart & Tzahi Y. Cath
Decentralized wastewater treatment systems can serve small communities and supply water suitable for reuse applications such as irrigation. An example of decentralized treatment is a sequencing batch membrane bioreactor (SBMBR), which treats small batches of wastewater and implements membrane filtration as a final treatment step. While treated effluent from the SBMBR is very high quality, high operating costs are a significant drawback. The following study examines energy optimization strategies to reduce operating costs of an...

Effect of environmental aging on the mechanical properties of PMMA material used in concentrating photovoltaics, The

Joseph D. Carloni, Taylor M. Wilkinson, David C. Miller & Corinne E. Packard
Concentrating photovoltaics (CPV) modules use focused light. A frensed lens requires less material and is lighter than a bulky and expensive traditional domed lens. A promising lens material is poly(methyl methacrylate) or PMMA. This polymer is a lightweight and mechanically robust optical grade material, benefitting the CPV application. It is relatively unknown how its performance will be affected by environmental weathering conditions. An ATLAS Ci-4000 Weather-Ometer simulates environmental wreathing at >8x acceleration. The samples tested...

Simulation of silicon-based solar cells using finite element analysis (FEA)

Will Schenken, Idemudia Airuoyo & Reuben T. Collins
Amorphous silicon (a-Si) and crystalline silicon (c-Si) are some of the most commonly used materials in modern solar cells due to their abundance, inexpensiveness, and performance in photovoltaics. New designs are being tested for enhancing the performance of solar cells that utilize silicon. The ability to accurately model and simulate devices incorporating both a-Si and c-Si allows for more effective and efficient ways of optimizing adjustable parameters and extracting useful information not easily obtainable through...

Design and construction of a thermal conductivity system for low thermal conductivity materials

Ramon Martinez, Abhishek Singh & Eric Toberer
Modern day laser flash apparatuses can only measure the thermal conductivity of materials if the thermal conductivity (K) is between 0.1 and 100 W/mK. Our goal was to create a system that could relay reliable data for materials with an expanded thermal conductivity range down to 0.001 W/mK. To accomplish this, a more powerful laser flash was used in conjunction with a circuit designed to amplify the signal so that the thermal conductivity could be...

From poop to gold: an examination of energy-positive wastewater treatment in an anaerobic reactor system

Daniel Lucio, Andrew Pfluger, Jennie Callahan, Brett Van Houghton, Junko Munakata Marr & Linda A. Figueroa
Today’s current best practices for wastewater treatment involve aerobic processes that require substantial amounts of energy. Best practice aerobic wastewater treatment facilities with anaerobic digestion of biosolids are able to produce 500-700 kWh/MG, which is approximately one-third to one-half of the 1500-2000 kWh/MG used to operate the facility. On the other hand, primary anaerobic treatment has the potential to be energy-positive by using methane gas produced by anaerobic microbial communities in the system. Previous results...
