Air Filtration Unit Based On Microshutteer Technology on the JWST For Greater Effeciency in Engine PreformanceBy: Dylan Sutch, Nick Roche, Cassius McCandele

Problem: Current car engines are not incredibly efficient in their combustion processes, and gasoline is a nonrenewable resource.

Being a purely theoretical idea it is unknown how effective it would actually be. However, as the microfilters on the filtration unit would have to be small enough to only let oxygen atoms in, it would have a limited rate in which it could flow through, which would result in a slow, but effective filtration process

To test the effectivity of the idea we could create a prototype of the exact size of the product sized to only let in oxygen, then create a sealed container with the filter on one of the walls that leads to a seperate box, then fill one of the boxes with a 2L gaseous mixture, with oxygen accouting for .5L of it. Wait for a few mins and record the amount of oxygen in the other box.

Microshutter technology in the JWST allows only certain light to enter a sensor, with incredibly small shutters that are electromagnetically controlled.

Our spinoff idea is to modify the microshutters by decreasing their size to filter gases, primary oxygen for greater efficiency in fuel combustion. The filter would be composed of thousands of shutters that would be very small and would open to the height of whatever molecule was being filtered. Since only the height is changed and not the length, this would allow only the molecule with that height or smaller to pass through, while allowing multiple molecules of the sort to pass through one shutter as the length is much greater than the height.
