  1. Recovery Act- Scale-up of the Nanomanufacturing of Coated Powders for Superior Battery Electrode Materials

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: 09b

    There is significant opportunity for energy efficiency improvements in the industrial and manufacturing sectors in the U.S., both from the production and consumption perspective. Higher energy density battery materials will play a role in both, through improved storage of electricity from renewable sources, the enabling of electric vehicles, and through the development of longer lasting, higher po ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. Ultra Low-Power and Embeddable Blade-Condition Monitor

    SBC: Extreme Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: 07c

    This SBIR/STTR project delivers an ultra-low power structural health monitoring (SHM) system that uses autonomous, wirelessly embedded sensors to monitor and assess structural integrity in wind turbine blades. EASE features impedance-based active SHM, which is highly sensitive to damage like cracks, delimitations, mass variations, fastener failures and stiffness changes. Blades are the only wind t ...

  5. Nickel-Based Amorphous Metal Membranes for Water Gas Shift Reactors

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 10c

    Hydrogen produced today from coal, natural gas, or biomass must be separated and purified outside the reactors using pressure swing absorption (PSA), a process that requires significant additional space and energy. Placing hydrogen-permeable membranes inside the reactors themselves would allow hydrogen to diffuse out, thereby reducing the cost of hydrogen production. In this Phase I effort, Mainst ...

  6. 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 - ...

  7. Low Cost, Scalable Manufacturing of Microlens Engineered Substrates (MLES) for Enhanced Light Extraction in OLED Devices

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: 09b

    Solid state lighting is being promoted as the ultimate lamps of future. Though the internal quantum efficiency of OLED devices is almost 100%, external efficiency is a mere 36% mainly because of poor light out-coupling (~40%) from the device. Improvement in light out-coupling to >70% and further reducing the manufacturing cost will rapidly accelerate the commercialization of the OLED technology. T ...

  8. Defect Free, Ultra-Rapid Thinning/Polishing of Diamond Crystal Radiator Targets (20??m) for Highly Linearly Polarized Photon Beams

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: 46e

    The fabrication of high-quality ultra thin (~20 micron) diamond crystals targets for 9 GeV highly polarized photon beams is an outstanding challenge. Current state of the art polishing/thinning techniques are not successful in thinning single crystal diamond to such dimension because of its extreme hardness and chemical inertness. These techniques create significant stresses surface and sub-surfac ...

  9. High Surface Area-to-Volume Ultrathin Dense Membrane for Hydrogen Separation

    SBC: T3 SCIENTIFIC LLC            Topic: 10c

    Providing a reliable, clean and economical energy source is a priority of the US government. The challenge is to use coal, a secured and economical energy source, to produce clean hydrogen fuel to support domestic and global green economy with near-zero emission. Conventional separation technology and even developmental technology do not satisfy all of the requirements for hydrogen production from ...

  10. Wide Bandgap Nanostructured Space Photovoltaics

    SBC: Firefly Technologies            Topic: T3

    Firefly, in collaboration with Rochester Institute of Technology, proposes an STTR program for the development of a wide-bandgap GaP-based space solar cell capable of efficient operation at temperatures above 300oC. Efficiency enhancement will be achieved by the introduction of InGaP quantum wells within the active region of the wide-gap base material. The introduction of these nanoscale features ...
