  1. STTR Phase I:Structural properties of carbon nanotube polymer composites

    SBC: BOULDER NONLINEAR SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop a new system for fabrication and manipulation of carbon nanotube (CNT) composites. The system will use holographic optical trapping (HOT) with a spatial light modulator (SLM) and a new form of nano-controlled photo-polymerization. This tool will allow the creation of a new class of carbon-nanotube polymer composite materials wit ...

  2. STTR Phase I: New Manufacturing Techniques to Produce High Quality Thin Films of Inherently Conducting Polymer Nanofibers Over a Large Area

    SBC: Fibron Inc.            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to develop a manufacturing process that can coat a variety of substrates with uniform thin films of inherently conducting polymer (ICP) nanofibers over a large area. Traditionally, these nanostructured organic materials are difficult to process into thin films covering a large area, which has limited the commercial applicability ...

  3. Exploiting the Mating Phenotype of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to Enhance Harvesting in Large-Scale Oil Production from Algae

    SBC: KENT SEATECH CORPORATION            Topic: A10

    This STTR Phase I project proposes to develop and establish a novel clumping (flocculation) strain of algal using an engineered extracellar protein that can be induced. The overarching goal is to provide the industry with a novel, energy efficient, and cost effective tool to dewater microalgae. What are the broader/commercial impacts of the proposed project? The broader/commercial impact of the p ...

  4. STTR Phase I: Design, Fabrication and Characterization of Ferroelectric Nanoparticle Doped Liquid Crystal/Polymer Composites

    SBC: MEADOWLARK OPTICS, INC.            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will address the critical need for low driving voltage, adaptive materials providing large phase retardation (for ultraviolet, visible, and infrared wavelengths) within a sub-millisecond time frame. Two technologically innovative tasks will be pursued in parallel and then merged, resulting in the creation of a new class of optical materials - ...

  5. STTR Phase I: Low Cost, High Efficiency Photovoltaics

    SBC: Ampulse Corporation            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to develop roll-to-roll processing of highly efficient, thin film photovoltaics on inexpensive polycrystalline substrates. The innovation lies in an architecture that yields near-single-crystalline thin films even on polycrystalline substrates. This innovation will be combined with the benefits of hot wire chemical vapor deposit ...

  6. STTR Phase I: Bistable Electroactive Polymers for Refreshable Braille Displays

    SBC: Polyradiant            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Program Phase I project aims to develop a refreshable Braille display for the blind. Existing Braille technologies require complicated mechanical designs that are bulky and too expensive for personal use. A new technology based on a new smart material (bistable electroactive polymer) will be developed to enable a Braille dot array on a thin flat panel. The ...

  7. STTR Phase I: New polymers for 10% efficiency organic photovoltaic cells

    SBC: SOLARMER ENERGY, INC.            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to develop high efficiency polymers for organic photovoltaic cells (OPVs). OPVs based on polymers are ideal for environmentally-benign and affordable energy generation. However, the efficiency of OPVs is still low compared to their inorganic counterparts, currently at 7.9%. One of the major reasons is the lack of polymers with ...

  9. STTR Phase I: High Thermal Conductivity Carbon Fibers From Nanotextured Mesophase Pitch Precursors

    SBC: ADVANCED THERMAL TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: MM

    This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project is for the development of ultrahigh thermal conductivity carbon fiber for use in graphite-metal composites. The use of graphite fiber in a metal matrix produces a composite with high thermal conductivity and controlled CTE, the two key requirem ...
