Award List:

SBIR Phase I: High Performance Electrochemical Capacitor Using Carbide-Derived Carbon Nanomaterial Electrodes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Ranjan Dash, PhD
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
This SBIR Phase I research proposal will develop nano-porous carbide-derived carbon electrodes for improved super-capacitor performance. The high power charge/discharge rate of current super-capacitors is offset by a low storage capacity compared to batteries. The capacitance of activated carbon… More

High Energy, High Power Supercapacitor-Battery Hybrid Energy Storage System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Ranjan Dash, Chief Technology Officer
Award Amount: $69,986.00
Abstract:
This proposal presents a Phase I SBIR project to develop high-energy, high-power supercapacitor-battery hybrid energy storage systems. Batteries are widely used, but have limited power capability and cycle life. Supercapacitors, also called ultracapacitors or double-layer capacitors, are… More

Recovery Act - Scale-Up of Tunable Nanoporous Carbon Production

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Ranjan Dash, Dr.
Award Amount: $149,938.00
Abstract:
The goal of this project is to scale up production of nanoporous carbon materials for supercapacitors, which are energy storage devices offering nearly limitless cyclability and high power capability. Present-day supercapacitors suffer from relatively low energy storage capability, but Y-Carbon
