Award List:

STTR Phase I: New Nanocomposite Materials for Advanced Li/S Batteries

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: Sandia National Laboratories
Principal Investigator: Tuqiang C. Chen, PhD
Award Amount: $150,000.00
RI Contact: Tc Chen
This STTR Phase I research proposal will develop novel Nanocomposite Cathode Materials (NCM) that will significantly improve the performance of Lithium-Sulfur (Li/S) batteries in terms of cycle life. The superior properties of the proposed NCMs will be achieved via formation of stabilized sulfur… More

New Li Battery Chemistry for Improved Performance

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Tuqiang Chen, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,999.00
Current state-of-the-art Lithium (Li) or Li-ion systems are unable to meet the performance goals of space-rated rechargeable batteries for many NASA's future robotic and human exploration missions. They either cannot provide sufficient energy and power or have poor cycle or calendar life. TH Chem,… More

A New Li Anode Technology for Improved Performance

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Tuqiang Chen, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,999.00
Lithium (Li) metal-based rechargeable batteries have many advantages over Li-ion systems including significantly higher energy density, lower cost, and the option of using positive electrode materials that do not have to be pre-lithiated. Unfortunately, Li metal electrodes form metal dendrites upon… More

High Density Hydrogen Storage with Nano-Material Hybrids

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Tuqiang Chen, President – (505) 610-6027
Award Amount: $99,998.00
ABSTRACT: Hydrogen powered fuel cells are promising next generation power source technologies for automobiles and many other portable and mobile electronics. However, application of the technology is greatly hindered by current hydrogen storage technology due to low storage capacity and… More
