Award List:

Novel Radiation Protection System Enabled by Hydrogen Enhanced Nano Fibers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Ali Zomorrodian, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $69,647.00
Abstract:
The need for radiation protection in humans is critical to the success of the nation's continued presence in space. A new radiation protection system will be developed from the recently defined unique hydrogen uptake properties of polyaniline (PANI) nanotubes. The PANI nanotubes have preliminarily… More

Lunar In-Situ Fabrication: The Manufacturing of Thin Film Solar Cells on the Surface of the Moon

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Laura Ignatiev, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $68,198.00
Abstract:
The utilization of space resources can enable sustained affordable exploration of the Moon and beyond in the nation's Exploration Initiative. The availability of low-cost, abundant indigenous electric power is critical to the aggressive implementation of space resource utilization. This power-rich… More

A Medipix-Based Small Personal Space Radiation Dosimeter

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Ali Zomorrodian, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,947.00
Abstract:
This SBIR effort will take the first step in improving the existing Medipix dosimeter technology in terms of advancing the technique now used to couple the actual sensitive detector material to the underlying readout electronics. Prototypes of current Medipix2-based devices have been developed… More

Ultra-Thin III-V Films for Tandem Photovoltaic Application

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Ali Zomorrodian, Dr. – 713-667-9558
Award Amount: $149,955.00
Abstract:
III-V semiconductors based solar cells display the highest sunlight conversion efficiency. Nevertheless, the material cost of current III-Vs and their fabrication process is very high which impedes their use for flat panel, large market applications. This project aims to explore, evaluate and… More

Low Temperature, High Energy Density Micro Thin Film Solid Oxide Fuel Cell

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Ali Zomorrodian, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $124,964.00
Abstract:
A new type of solid oxide fuel cell based on thin film technology and ultra-thin electrolyte is being proposed to develop to realize major reductions in fuel cell size, weight, and operating temperature, while significantly increasing power density. The thin film fuel cell is comprised of a… More
