Capacity value of variable renewable energy and energy storage
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
Variable renewable energy (VRE) resources account for approximately half of new capacity additions in independent system operator (ISO) markets in the United States in the last five years. When designing and implementing ...
Development of a photolithography procedure for the fabrication of micro-engineered boiling surfaces
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
Boiling is a very effective heat removal process, used for heat management in many engineering systems, such as electronic devices or nuclear reactors. However, if the heat flux to remove exceeds the so-called Critical ...
Hierarchical and size dependent mechanical properties of silica and silicon nanostructures inspired by diatom algae
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
Biology implements fundamental principles that allow for attractive mechanical properties, as observed in biomineralized structures. For example, diatom algae contain nanoporous hierarchical silicified shells that provide ...
