  1. 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 ...

  2. STTR Phase I: Controlled Phase Separation for Graphic Smart Card Display

    SBC: KENT DISPLAYS, INC.            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project shall develop and model phase separating materials for passively-driven graphical displays, which are needed for smart cards that can display graphic images. Nearly all consumer credit cards used today have no functional display. Since the numbers and security codes on the cards cannot be changed, fraudulent use is estimated to be as high as ...

  3. 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 - ...

  4. STTR Phase I: Low Cost, High Efficiency Photovoltaics

    SBC: Ampulse Corporation            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to develop roll-to-roll processing of highly efficient, thin film photovoltaics on inexpensive polycrystalline substrates. The innovation lies in an architecture that yields near-single-crystalline thin films even on polycrystalline substrates. This innovation will be combined with the benefits of hot wire chemical vapor deposit ...

  5. STTR Phase I: Up-Cycling: Waste Acid for Green Products

    SBC: Clear Carbon Innovations            Topic: MM

    This STTR Phase I project will develop a process to produce silica products from the waste stream of a patent pending activated carbon manufacturing process (carbonxt process). The project focuses on using the silica for Silica-Titania Composites but would also take into account markets that employ precipitated or gel silica which would have differing properties than the silica used in Silica-Tit ...

  6. High throughput aligned nanofiber multiwell plates for glioblastoma research

    SBC: NANOFIBER SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: BMS

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to address the unmet need for high-throughput, cost-effective research tools to model the metastasis of cancer cells. The proposed research objectives are to (1) discover cost-effective, commercially scalable methods allowing the production of aligned nanofibers in a 96-well plate format and (2) verify that the fiber alignment is ...

  7. STTR Phase I: Low-cost naostructured anti-reflection coatings for solar energy applications

    SBC: CSD Nano            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to fabricate anti-reflective coatings (ARC) for solar energy applications. The approach is to use a convective and evaporation-induced assembly to deposit organized nanostructures and create sub-wavelength quasi repeating structures at lower cost than the repeating structures from photolithography. In this project, a Microreacto ...

  8. STTR Phase I:Novel Nanostructured Substrates for Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS)

    SBC: LXD            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop a new type of nanostructured substrate for applications in arsenide detection using surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). Arsenic is a well known toxic chemical which exists in both nature and industrial processes, and its detection and monitoring at very low concentration is highly desired. SERS, which relies on Raman sig ...

  9. STTR Phase I: In Situ Cyanide Monitoring in Gold Mine Effluents

    SBC: United Science, LLC            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project addresses the unmet analytical needs for monitoring cyanide leaching of gold, a process widely used in the mining industry to refine gold ores. The goal is to establish the feasibility of sensors that permit the selective measurement of free and complexed cyanide in the cyanide leach reactor, detoxification reactor, and in the tailings ...
