Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

The commercial viability of fuel cells is inhibited by the cost associated with the use of expensive catalysts such as platinum. Thus, a key DOE objective is to reduce the amount of catalysts while achieving improved performance. It has been found that when commercial fuel cell electrodes are modified with a very thin layer of cheap carbon nan...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

A dramatic improvement in hydrogen fuel cell cathode performance will be needed before the technology can be considered viable and used to create a hydrogen economy. The use of carbon nanotubes as catalyst supports could produce outstanding leaps in performance and catalyst utilization, but three problems are associated with their use: (1) cos...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Florida Atlantic University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 01-2
Budget: 01/01/01 - 12/31/01

Tailored carbon nanofibers are under development at Florida Atlantic University. These materials exhibit an uncommon double-layer capacitance at high frequencies; this feature makes them desirable for electrochemical capacitor applications. Their power and energy characteristics may be dramatically improved by surface functionalization using pro...
