Description: This image shows a shim developed by tesearchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for a rapidly-cycled microchannel thermal swing adsorption (TSA) device. This is designed to efficiently use heat energy to compress carbon dioxide as a feedstock for an in-situ propellant production system deployed on Mars. This device could have application wherever purification and compression of gases is required with a compact system.
