Award List:

Bismuth Hall Thruster Contamination Characterization and Mitigation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Casey C. Farnell, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,992.00
Abstract:
Hall thrusters operated with bismuth propellant provide performance and cost advantages over devices operated with xenon propellant. However, bismuth propellant also has the potential to transport onto, and contaminate, spacecraft surfaces. Before the promise of bismuth thrusters can be exploited,… More

Hydroxyapatite Coatings Deposited Using Plasma Based Ion Implantation and Deposit

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Cody C. Farnell
Award Amount: $99,996.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In the Phase I research project, Plasma Controls will demonstrate the abilities and usefulness of an advanced plasma processing technique known as plasma based ion implantation and deposition (PBIIandD) by applying hydr oxyapatite coatings on titanium alloy… More

Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition of Hydroxyapatite Coatings

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Cody C. Farnell, DPhil
Award Amount: $149,984.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop the use of plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) as a method of applying hydroxyapatite (HA) coatings onto next-generation titanium alloy implantable biocompatible materials. PECVD is attractive as a method to address… More

A Thin-film Thermoelectric Generator will be Developed Using a Novel Manufacturing Approach

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Casey Farnell, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,999.00
Abstract:
The Department of Energy is interested in increasing the performance and cost-effectiveness of thermoelectric generator modules intended for waste heat recovery systems. Although high-efficiency small-scale thermoelectric generators have been demonstrated in the laboratory, scaling to… More
