14 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-012
Budget: 05/25/16 - 11/30/16
PI: Bor Jang

This proposal seeks to develop a high-energy lithium-ion battery with enhanced safety enabled by a cost-effective graphene-protected nano-Si anode and a non-flammable electrolyte. Graphene possesses ultra-high mechanical strength and high electrical conductivity, thereby limiting the anode expansion during charging and also improving the utiliza...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BC-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop cost-effective and commercializable anode materials exhibiting large lithium storage capacity, high rate capability, and long cycle life for next generation lithium-ion batteries. Silicon-based anode materials hold great potential to meet the high energy density requ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: CT2-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project seeks to develop a new generation of anode materials for lithium-ion batteries having the advantages of low cost, high Li+ ion storage capacity, high rate, and long cycling life. These anode materials are innovative nanocomposite structures made up of Si nano particles, carbon, and nano gra...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

The two most critical barriers to the large-scale implementation of supercapacitors for powering electric vehicles (EVs) are electrode performance (e.g., device weight, internal resistance, energy density, and power density) and cost. To address these barriers, this project will adapt nano-graphene plates (NGPs) as the electrode materials ¿ in ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

In fuel cell systems, the bipolar plate is known to significantly impact the performance, durability, volume-to-weight ratio, and cost. This project will develop an innovative class of low-cost sheet molding compound (SMC) bipolar plates consisting of a thin nanocomposite core layer sandwiched between two sheets of flexible graphite (FG). The ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

This project will develop a new class of nanocomposites containing isolated, individual, nano-scaled graphene plates (NGPs). Like carbon nano-tubes, NGP materials exhibit attractive properties like carbon nano-tubes, but can be readily mass-produced and are expected to become available at much lower costs and in larger quantities. When incorpo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

The fluid-flow field plate, or bipolar plate, is known to significantly impact the performance, durability, and cost of a fuel cell system. Conventional methods of fabricating bipolar plates require the engraving or milling of flow channels into the surface of metal plates. As a consequence, the bipolar plate is one of the most costly component...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05
PI: Wen Huang

79671S Attempts to produce Carbon Nano Tube(CNT) in large quantities have been fraught with overwhelming challenges due to poor yield, costly fabrication, and the need for the purifying processes required to make them useful in applications. This project will develop an alternative nanoscale carbon material with comparable properties that can ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: North Dakota State University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04
PI: Wen Huang

This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I proposal will overcome the most critical problems associated with the construction of a direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC): complex, bulky and heavy cell structures, low fuel efficiency, and high cost. These issues have severely impeded the successful commercialization of DMFCs for po...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03
PI: Leon Wu

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of a novel method, Reactive Vapor Deposition (RVD), which is capable of mass producing thin-film, meso-porous and nano-phased cathode materials for use in lithium-ion and lithium-metal batteries. Theoretical calculations and a primitive bench-top set-up hav...
