Novel Ultrasonic Device to Mix New Alloy for Super Capacitor
The Ceramic Group at Queen’s University in Kingston, lead by Prof. Vladimir D. Krstic, is working with Stratford, Ontario based ALUPRO-MPI Ultrasonics Inc. , lead by Nico van Dongen, on a new type of advanced ceramic alloy that could dramatically outperform the existing materials.
The Ceramic Group at Queen’s University in Kingston, lead by Prof. Vladimir D. Krstic, is working with Stratford, Ontario based ALUPRO-MPI Ultrasonics Inc. on a new type of advanced ceramic alloy that could dramatically outperform the existing materials.
The plan is to use ALUPRO-MPI’s novel ultrasonic device that can forcefully homogenize large volume liquid metals, such as strontium and titanium, which, in the past, have been impossible to mix. This will dramatically reduce the costs of manufacturing the ultra capacitor. Fifteen years of research have resulted in this new ultrasound technology.
ALUPRO-MPI Ultrasonics is also exploring medical applications as many scientific papers suggest that low frequency, low intensity ultrasound may cure many neurological disorders as well as many types of (metastatic) cancer. A lot of research, however, still needs to be done.
Both Ceramic Group and ALUPRO-MPI Ultrasonics are exploring the possibility to move to BC as they feel that the investment climate in BC is more open to new technologies.
The establishment of new ultrasonic department as well as a new ceramic group at universities near Vancouver and Victoria is now being explored.
