  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. STTR Phase I: Advanced Uncooled Infrared Detectors at the Nano-Scale

    SBC: KYTARO, INC.            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project aims to develop highly sensitive and inexpensive uncooled microbolometers using ultra-thin films of metals, metal oxides, or semi-metals. These microbolometers will be attractive for use in portable night vision devices and other thermal imaging applications that require a Noise Equivalent Temperature Difference (NETD) of less than 20 mK. We ...

  4. STTR Phase I: Biomimetically Engineered Ceramics

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMICS MANUFACTURING, LLC            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project seeks to develop biomimetic structures in engineering ceramics based on the damage-tolerant sea shell micro-architecture. Poor damage tolerance of engineering ceramics leads to catastrophic failure modes under stress, which restricts their structural utility. In extreme conditions, ceramics generally function only as a thermal or chemical ba ...

  5. Efficient plasma synthesis of high-quality graphene

    SBC: APS LLC            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to develop a highly-efficient and cost-effective plasma-based method for graphene mass production. The approach is to utilize unique properties of magnetically controlled arc discharge to couple the plasma production of carbon species and the synthesis of graphene. The broader/commercial impact of this project will be the potenti ...

  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. Light Transparent, Electrically Conductive Coatings by Filtered Cathodic Arc Plasma Deposition

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project will build upon and extend the encouraging results obtained in the Phase I program, which investigated the properties of thin, electrically conductive, UV transparent films and tri-layer metal coatings as possible diamond switch electrode structures for power electronics. Phase I benchmarked UV transmission, electrical conductivity an ...

  10. STTR Phase I: Advanced Fabrication and Development of Exchanged Coupled Magnets

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: AM

    The Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I Project will use an already established filtered cathodic arc deposition (FCAD) process for building precise nano-scaled structures necessary to produce high-performance exchange coupled magnets (ECM). Theoretical calculations show that that the performance for ECM magnets can be two or three times that of single phase magnets. The ...
