  2. 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 ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: MEMS Micro-Energy Harvester for Integrated Self-Powered Wireless Sensors

    SBC: MCB Clean Room Solutions, LLC            Topic: IC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is to develop a self-powered Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) piezoelectric wireless sensor platform architecture based on a Micro-Vibrational-Energy-Harvester (uVEH) that can be monolithically integrated with MEMS sensors. Current commercially available vibrational energy harvesters are too large and expensive to integrate with w ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: SERS Enhanced Ligase Detection Reaction Chip for the Molecular Diagnosis of Cancer

    SBC: Illuminaria LLC            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to develop an entirely new platform for the molecular diagnostics of cancer exploiting a new Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) enhanced Ligase Detection Reaction (LDR) and an optically active microfluidic chip. Since every dye has a unique Raman fingerprint, the number of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that can ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Targeted Production of Spider Silk Fibroins in Plant Trichomes

    SBC: Phyllotech, Inc.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of producing spider silk fibroins in plant trichomes. Synthetic spider silk has great potential as an environmentally-friendly biomaterial because it is very flexible yet has a tensile strength greater than steel. A great need exists for a novel strategy of spider silk fibroin production in a renewable heterol ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Using Mycelium As A Matrix For Binding Natural Fibers And Core Filler Materials In Sustainable Composites

    SBC: ECOVATIVE DESIGN LLC            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project seeks to address the steadily growing but unsustainable polymer matrix composite (PMC) market. PMCs are leveraged for their high strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios as compared to conventional engineering materials, but are notoriously unsustainable, energy-intensive to manufacture, and non-recyclable. Researchers have investiga ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Novel Nanohybrids for Room-Temperature Hydrogen Detection

    SBC: NANOAFFIX SCIENCE LLC            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to significantly advance H2 gas sensing technologies by exploring a novel nanohybrid sensing platform of SnO2 nanocrystals supported on carbon nanotubes (CNTs). The high demand of H2 as a clean energy source drives the fast growth of the H2 sensor market. Early detection of H2 is essential to the safe handling of H2, and ultimate ...

  9. 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 ...
