Highly Absorptive Nanostructured Chemical Wipe

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: Michael Wilson
Award Amount: $99,967.16
Abstract:
Wipe sampling provides a convenient method for determining if a surface is contaminated by chemical warfare agents (CWAs). In wipe sampling, a pad is wetted with solvent and wiped over the surface of interest. The pad is then extracted and the extract is analyzed for the presence of… More

Mesoporous Silicon-Based Anodes for High Capacity, High Performance Li-ion Batteries

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Dharmasena Peramunage, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $599,986.00
Abstract:
A new high capacity anode composite based on mesoporous silicon is proposed. By virtue of a structure that resembles a pseudo one-dimensional phase, the active anode material will be able to accommodate significant volume changes expected upon alloying and de-alloying with lithium. The mesoporosity… More

Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Job Bello, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $599,999.00
Abstract:
NASA's Vision for Space Exploration advocates a return to the moon and involves a pl an of using the moon as a base of for missions to other planets. Early return missions to the moon will involve lunar exploration with robotic spacecrafts with instrumental payloads for scientific measurements… More

Novel Membrane for Highly Efficient Fuel Cells

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Fei Wang, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,974.00
Abstract:
Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cells and electrolyzers are key technologies for NASA space systems utilizing hydrogen, oxygen, or water as reactants. In order to improve the life and reliability of the electrochemical stacks within these systems, as well as to reduce overall system mass/volume… More

Low Cost and Highly Selective Composite Membrane for Redox Flow Batteries

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Fei Wang, Dr.
Award Amount: $997,894.00
Abstract:
Redox flow batteries (RFB) hold great promise for large scale electrochemical energy storage that will be required for intermittent renewable energy sources like solar or wind. A critical component of the RFB is the membrane which separates anode and cathode compartments. Currently, this is… More

Nano-reinforced Low Density Structural Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Stuart F. Cogan, Vice President – (781) 769-9450
Award Amount: $69,973.00
Abstract:
The development of a nano-reinforced metal matrix composite as a low-density, high-strength, replacement for existing metal alloys and composites used in lightweight structures, vehicles, and advanced weapons systems is proposed. The composites are expected to have exceptional mechanical properties… More

Nanocatalytic Rechargeable Lithium Air Cathodes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Dharmasena Peramunage, Dr. – 781-769-9450
Award Amount: $149,968.00
Abstract:
The Li/O2 battery has potentially the highest energy density of any Li system, theoretically & gt;10 4Wh/kg. However, rapid passivation of the cathode matrix during discharge has precluded reaching anything near that value, and electrolyte oxidation during discharge by reactive… More

Development of a Fiber Optically Coupled Raman Video Probe for the Non-Destructive Inspection of Concrete in Light Water Reactors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Job Bello, Dr.
Award Amount: $149,973.00
Abstract:
Concrete is widely used in light water reactor (LWR) constructions as building foundations and support, shielding materials and for radiation containment. The integrity of construction materials like concrete is an important consideration and concern for LWR facilities since degradation of these… More

Development of a Multipass Raman Cell and Instrument for Vapor Analysis of Subsurface Chemical Contaminants

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Job Bello, Dr.
Award Amount: $149,968.00
Abstract:
Past Department of Energy (DOE) operations at its weapons complex facilities involve the use of organic solvents that were then not properly disposed and released into the environment resulting in the contamination of soils and groundwater. DOE faces monumental remediation challenges in restoring… More
