Abstract:

Phase II SBIR program is to demonstrate the synthesis of multifunctional materials using electrostatic self-assembly (ESA) methods via bath and ink jet processing systems. NanoSonic will work with Separation Systems Technology (SST) to establish ink jetprinting of thin films on SST substrates for desalination membranes and to transition the process to SST research and manufacturing operations. Ink jet capability will also allow direct printing of conformal microstrip antenna elements and feeds onstructural substrates. A demonstration test device will be designed, fabricated and evaluated in cooperation with Lockheed Martin Astronautics. This demonstrator device will be designed to incorporate conformal, self-assembled photovoltaic powergeneration arrays. During Phase I, NanoSonic demonstrated a
