  1. STTR Phase I: Low Cost Copper Contacts with Built in Barriers for Crystalline Silicon Solar Cells

    SBC: Bert Thin Films, LLC            Topic: MN

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will be to lower manufacturing costs in the photovoltaic (PV) industry. In the past decade, the solar energy industry has seen double digit compound annual growth rates. This success has resulted in the industry consuming nearly 10 percent of the global silver production. The cost of metalliza ...

  2. STTR Phase I: Linkage Objects for Generalized Instruction in Coding

    SBC: Tutorgen, Inc.            Topic: EA

    This STTR Phase I project represents a revolutionary advance in adaptive educational systems for computer programming by using big data collected from previous coding exercises to automatically generate hints and feedback for students coding in an integrated development environment (IDE). This work addresses NSF's Educational Applications subtopic "Tools for Learning and Assessment" by making adap ...

  3. STTR Phase I: Enhancing plant genetic transformation by Agrobacterium

    SBC: Edison Agrosciences, Inc.            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project is the improvement of plant genetic transformation (the introduction of new genes via biotechnology approaches). The past two decades of research and commercialization of genetically modified plants have resulted in crop species with improved agronomic traits, such as herbicide tolerance and pest resi ...

  4. STTR Phase I: Mechanical Surface Treatment for High Performance Biodegradable Implants

    SBC: SURFACE INTEGRITY, LLC            Topic: BM

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to shift current practices in bone fracture fixation care from using permanent metal implants to biodegradable metal implants (screws, plates, pins, rods, etc.). A promising biodegradable metal that is gaining widespread attention is magnesium. This project will advance magnesium implant te ...

  5. STTR Phase I: Ultrasonic Nanocoining for Creating Large, Low-Cost Arrays of Sub-Wavelength Features

    SBC: Smart Material Solutions, Inc.            Topic: MN

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase 1 project is to drastically reduce the cost of creating large surfaces coated with functional nano-scale features. One example is the moth-eye structure, consisting of a continuous pattern of 200 nm wide by 200 nm tall features, that gives surface anti-reflective properties. An anti-reflective surface c ...

  6. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is critical to detect the proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges facing this objective include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions (e.g., gamma rays) from common radioactive isotopes behind shielding, and (b) cost-effe ...

  7. STTR Phase I: Data-Driven Decision Support Services for Emergency Department Operations

    SBC: Roundtable Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SH

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is very significant. Suboptimal operational decision-making in emergency departments leads to inefficiencies that result in extreme patient wait-times, the diversion of ambulances to other emergency departments, wasted resources and patients who either leave before being treated or against med ...
