  1. Advanced sodium batteries with enhanced safety and low cost processing

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: 1

    Sodium beta-alumina batteries are one of the most promising large-scale electrical energy storage technologies due to their high energy density and excellent cycling capability. Despite many advantages, the sodium batteries have several barriers for successful commercialization, mainly related to safety issues and high capital investment for installation. The current battery cells typically oper ...

  2. Hydrogen/Bromine Energy Storage System

    SBC: TVN Systems, Inc.            Topic: 1

    "It is our objective to develop a cost effective, durable and reliable hydrogen-bromine flow battery system for small-scale electrical energy storage applications. H2/Br2 flow battery technology has been around for decades, however, the lack of low-cost and durable electrode and membrane materials in addition to non-optimal cell/stack configurations have prevented this technology from widespread d ...

  4. SBIR Phase II: Clean Tool: A unified approach to wafer cleaning

    SBC: Uncopiers, Inc.            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop a single wafer processing clean tool for semiconductor wafer cleaning at all stages of wafer processing. The method relies on using acoustically controlled micro-cavitation to remove on-wafer particles. This is a chemical-free cleaning method, using ultra-pure water as the only processing fluid. During cleaning the par ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: Near Infrared Substrates for Imaging Autotaxin Activity In Vivo

    SBC: ECHELON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to further develop ATX-Red, an in vivo imaging agent that becomes fluorescent in the presence of the enzyme autotaxin. Autotaxin and its product LPA are involved in numerous biological functions that generally involve cell movement, and their dysregulation is associated with many diseases including cancer, fibroses, cardiovascula ...

  8. SBIR Phase II: Fluorescent Polymeric Nanoparticles

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop a new generation of fluorescence amplifying reagents based on poly (phenylene ethynylene (PPE)) nanoparticles. Because of the role of the amplifying polymer in the enhanced sensitivity of these compounds, these compounds are called Amplimer reagents. The project will develop and launch two types of Amplimer reagents: mic ...
