  1. SBIR Phase I:Thermally Stable, Flexible Substrates for Flat Panel Displays

    SBC: AKRON POLYMER SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will establish the feasibility of producing a flexible, highly transparent polyimide film that is thermally stable, has a high glass transition, displays near zero birefringence and a low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE). This material is designed for use as a flexible flat panel display substrate. No available material displays all of ...

  2. SBIR Phase I:Structured bed for CO2 Capture

    SBC: CATACEL CORP            Topic: BC

    This SBIR Phase I project will show proof-of-concept for a structured bed reactor using dry materials coating metal foil surfaces to capture CO2 from power plants and other combustion sources. This process will employ a scale-up version of an existing heat exchanging reactor platform in combination with sorbent materials developed by Hoffman at the National Energy Technology Laboratory and other ...

  3. Electroconcentration, Separation, and Rupture of Bioalgae for Fuel Production

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: BC

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop an extraction technique using electro-concentration, electro-separation, and electro-rupture processes to enhance the harvesting of oil from bioalgae. The proposed method would provide an economical alternative to expeller or solvent extraction of lipids from bioalgae. Elimination of the current use of energy intensive methods and often use of hazardous sol ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Achieving Breakthrough Properties for Carbon Nanotube Yarn via Base Flow Chemical Vapor Deposition and Industrial Spinning

    SBC: GENERAL NANO LLC            Topic: NM

    This Small Businesses Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to synthesize ultra-long carbon nanotubes (CNT) and spin them into the yarns to achieve breakthrough properties of CNT yarns. The approach is to develop a base flow chemical vapor deposition (CVD) reactor, new porous substrates patterned using laser drilling and nano-imprint lithography, and separate gas flows to keep the catal ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Catalyst for the Oxidation of Methane in Coal Mine Ventilation Air

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project seeks to develop a novel high temperature catalyst for the oxidation of methane present in coal mine ventilation air. Referred to as ventilation air methane (VAM), VAM emissions contain between 0.2% and 1.2% CH4 plus ppm levels of sulfur gases (H2S, SO2 and COS). While the sulfur levels are low, these levels are sufficient to rapidly deacti ...

  6. SBIR Phase I:Bioluminescent reporter phage for the rapid and specific detection of the causative agent of bacterial blight

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will generate a "light-tagged" reporter phage that can confer a bioluminescent signal to the phytopathogen Pseudomonas syringae pv. alisalensis. P. syringae pv. alisalensis is the causative agent of bacterial blight, a contagious and damaging disease afflicting cruciferous vegetables. Since the severity of the disease renders the crop unmarke ...

  7. STTR Phase II: Improved Addressing Speed of Plasma-sphere Arrays

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: EL

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project is a study to expand the high speed addressing work conducted under Phase I using monochrome Plasma-spheres to color Plasma-spheres. Plasma-spheres are hollow transparent shells that encapsulate a selected pressurized gas. When a voltage is applied across the shell, the gas ionizes and glows. Plasma-spheres are applied to flexible, el ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Active Visible and Infrared Management for More Energy Efficient Buildings

    SBC: Gamma Dynamics LLC            Topic: IC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will demonstrate feasibility of creating surfaces that actively manage solar heat gain by switching between infrared transmittance and reflectivity. The ultimate objective is to develop skylights, windows, and roofs that adapt to seasonal, regional, and diurnal changes in solar flux and heating and cooling requirements. The Phase I obj ...

  9. SBIR Phase I:Magnetic technologies for improved microalgal biofuels production

    SBC: Phycal LLC            Topic: BC

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop a system for magnetic separation from growth media and cell disruption of algae to improve the efficiency of harvesting algae for bio-fuels production. The use of magnetic technologies has the potential to improve the energy efficiency of removing algae from growth media. The use of a magnetic separation technology introduces an energy efficient means by wh ...

  10. 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 ...
