  1. SBIR Phase I: The Digital Spinneret

    SBC: FREE FORM FIBERS L.L.C.            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will determine optimal process parameters for massively parallel Laser Chemical Vapor Deposition (LCVD) of silicon carbide fibers by building on work already performed at the proposing company, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and the University of Montreal. Ceramic fibers are typically produced using polymeric precursors, which means that s ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Novel Apparatus for Producing High-Purity Lithium Metal

    SBC: ELECTROSYNTHESIS COMPANY INC            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will determine feasibility of using new technology to produce high purity lithium metal. The existing energy-intensive production method operates at 460C, has changed little in over 100 years and requires over 35 kWh/kg of lithium metal. The purity of the product is very dependent on the feed material with high purity lithium produced ...
