  1. SBIR Phase II: Engineered Solid Electrolyte Interphase Films for Silicon-Based Lithium Insertion Anodes

    SBC: ELECTROCHEMICAL MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project proposes to develop and commercialize surface-engineered silicon anodes for use in lithium-ion batteries. Silicon has a ten fold greater charge capacity than graphite but its practical use as an anode material is hindered due to the mechanical problems associated with lithiation cycles (cracking, pulverization) and unwanted chemical reaction ...

  2. SBIR Phase II: Improved Cold Thermal Energy Storage for Refrigeration Applications

    SBC: Promethean Power Systems            Topic: IC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes the commercialization of a new type of industrial refrigeration system for cooling raw milk in Indian villages, without the use of backup diesel generators. The innovation lies in a novel thermal battery pack concept developed by Promethean Power Systems with a Phase I grant from the National Science Foundation. The battery s ...

  3. SBIR Phase II: Novel Proteolysis-based Tools for Metabolic Engineering

    SBC: Ginkgo BioWorks            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project aims to engineer microbes for the cost-effective production of specialty chemicals. Currently, engineered microbial strains bear mutations that increase the production of chemicals of interest by inhibiting the cell's ability to produce off pathway chemicals. These "loss-of-function" mutations are critical as they effectively channel the ...

  4. SBIR Phase II: Epitaxially Grown GaSb Thin Films on GaAs Substrates For Near-Field Conversion of Heat to Electricity

    SBC: MTPV LLC            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II Project goal is to produce GaSb photovoltaic devices of multicell (MIM) construction for TPV use. Current devices use single cell. MIM devices have significant advantages over single cell in efficiency and cost. A MIM device is composed of many sub-cells physically isolated on the same substrate. This proportionally increases output voltage a ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: A Novel 10 kW Micro-turbine for Distributed Generation Applications

    SBC: Dynamo Micropower            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop a low-cost 10kW micro-turbine power generator that provides the basis for portability, fuel flexibility, and reduced maintenance of conventional turbo-machines at a cost that is competitive with reciprocating engines. Current micro-turbines have prohibitively high costs due to complicated geometry and materials, bu ...

  6. SBIR Phase II: Extracting Valuable Information Automatically from Objects with Surface Impressions via Photographs and Interactive Digital Surrogates

    SBC: Learning Sites, Inc.            Topic: EI

    The innovation, CUNAT (CUNeiform Automated Translator) attacks significant problems in a discipline wedded to conservative manual methods. Ancient Mesopotamian legal treatises, Egyptian medical records, and Roman political accounts--telling us exactly what happened in the words of the very people whose actions formed our history - languish untranslated, because there are too many of them, translat ...

  7. SBIR Phase II: A novel economic, efficient, environmentally benign, and sustainable multi-component separation technology based on acoustophoresis

    SBC: Flodesign Sonics, Inc.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project focuses on a novel ultrasonic acoustophoretic separation technology that is economic, efficient, sustainable, and environmentally benign. Current technologies, e.g., hydrocyclones, and membrane filtration, suffer from problems, such as high energy costs, use of consumables, fouling, and limited efficiency in separation of micron-sized ...

  8. SBIR Phase II: Portable, Low-Cost, and Robust Black Carbon Measurement Instrument using Radio Frequency Sensing

    SBC: Filter Sensing Technologies, Inc.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop a novel radio-frequency (RF) sensing method to provide a real-time measurement of black carbon emissions. The feasibility of this concept was demonstrated in Phase I, and engine emissions measurements are targeted in Phase II. Accurate measurement and characterization of black carbon emissions are hampered by the l ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: Interactive Multi-Touch Collaborative Table for Classrooms

    SBC: FTL Labs Corporation            Topic: EA

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II award proposes to develop a multi-touch table with object tracking and smart surface devices to create a highly versatile augmented-reality lab bench. The resulting instrument allows collaborative experimentation using physical lab equipment such as ballistic pucks, microscopes, beakers, and hot plates, combined with real-time measurement, an ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: Tunable Terahertz Quantum Cascade Lasers for Spectroscopy

    SBC: LONGWAVE PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will demonstrate a prototype frequency tunable quantum cascade laser (TQCL) operating at terahertz frequencies (2-5 THz) for applications including gas spectroscopy and non-destructive imaging. This novel source is based on distributed feedback (DFB) terahertz QCL with a lateral waveguide dimension much smaller than the wavelength (wi ...
