Award List:

Ultra-High Energy Density Piezoelectric Nanocomposites for Lightweight Power Harvesting Micro-Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Saul Opie, Research Scientist
Award Amount: $99,000.00
Abstract:
The proposed phase I research effort will develop a highly efficient MEMS energy harvesters that utilize a novel nanocomposite technology recently developed by Sodano Engineering LLC. Unlike existing piezoelectric nanocomposites, the material proposed here has an electromechanical coupling… More

Vertically Aligned ZnO Nanowire Interleave for Enhanced Interlaminar Strength

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Saul Opie, Research Scientist
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
The proposed Phase I research effort will develop a novel technique to place vertically aligned ZnO nanowires in the interlaminar region of fiber reinforced composites. It is widely accepted that the interlaminar region of a composite presents one of the most challenging failure mechanisms to… More

ZnO Nanowire Interleave for Enhanced Interlaminar Strength

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Michael Garcia, Research Scientist – (480) 205-1202
Award Amount: $750,000.00
Abstract:
The objective of this SBIR research project is to develop a treatment for interlaminar reinforcement that maintains the composite"s in-plane properties. Because the interlaminar region is a critical component of the composite and no current technology adequately addresses its weaknesses, this… More

SBIR Phase I: Ultra High Energy Density Nanocomposite Capacitors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Keith Stegath
Award Amount: $149,990.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop nanocomposite capacitor films with high energy density and low loss through the use of a unique synthesis process for high aspect ratio nanowires of previously unrealized compositions in this form. High power capacitors are a… More

High Temperature Sensors Using Vertically Aligned ZnO Nanowires

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Kate Caldwell, Research Scientist
Award Amount: $124,980.00
Abstract:
NASA requires new instrumentation technologies that can be applied to measure dynamic quantities such as acceleration and flow velocity under extreme temperatures where traditional sensing methodologies cannot be applied. The proposed Phase I SBIR research effort will seek to create accelerometers… More
