Award List:

Develop High-Temperature, Low-Humidity Aromatic Hydrocarbon-based H2/O2 Membranes for Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cells

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dong Zhang, Project Manager
Award Amount: $99,746.00
Abstract:
The development of proton exchange membrane (PEM)(also known as polymer electrolyte membrane) fuel cells has been limited by the availability of suitable membrane materials. In order to achieve acceptable performance at low cost, such fuel cells are required to work at elevated temperature and low… More

Develop High-Temperature, Low-Humidity Aromatic Hydrocarbon-based H2/O2 Membranes for Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cells

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dong Zhang, Project Manager
Award Amount: $749,887.00
Abstract:
In order to achieve high performance at acceptable cost, PEM fuel cells are required to work at elevated temperature and low relative humidity (near 0 RH) for extended periods of time. However, to date, no commercial PEMs or publicly reported PEMs can meet these requirements. The objectives of this… More

Wide Temperature, High Energy Density Capacitors for Power System Conditioning

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Matthew J. Graham, VP of Business Development
Award Amount: $99,702.00
Abstract:
The goal of this proposal is to fabricate a capacitor with an energy density of at least 4 J/cc that is durable over 10,000 cycles with an operational temperature range of -55 oC to 300 oC. This goal requires that a new thermally stable, high dielectric constant material be developed. It is… More

Antimicrobial Coatings for Medical Shelters

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Matthew Graham, Vice President Business Development
Award Amount: $69,975.00
Abstract:
Approximately 2 million infections are acquired in hospitals annually with a major source of bacterial contamination being frequently touched common surfaces. This problem also exists for Combat Surgical Hospitals. Current anti-bacterial coatings are not suitable for these environments because of… More

SBIR Phase I:Thermally Stable, Flexible Substrates for Flat Panel Displays

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Frank W. Harris, PhD
Award Amount: $149,996.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will establish the feasibility of producing a flexible, highly transparent polyimide film that is thermally stable, has a high glass transition, displays near zero birefringence and a low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE). This material is… More
