  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: 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 - ...

  3. STTR Phase I: Biomimetically Engineered Ceramics

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMICS MANUFACTURING, LLC            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project seeks to develop biomimetic structures in engineering ceramics based on the damage-tolerant sea shell micro-architecture. Poor damage tolerance of engineering ceramics leads to catastrophic failure modes under stress, which restricts their structural utility. In extreme conditions, ceramics generally function only as a thermal or chemical ba ...

  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: 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 ...
