Phase 1 SBIR

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

Navitas proposes a novel high capacity anode material based on reinforced microporous silicon alloy. The key innovation in this project is a process that produces a microporous silicon reinforced by a small weight fraction of electrochemically inert ceramic. The process is scalable and uses low-cost reactants and precursors. The ceramic both ext...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N152-093
Budget: 10/21/15 - 04/22/16

Low cost and high capacity make lithium sulfur batteries (LSB) the next generation of lithium ion batteries. Practical application of LSBs remains limited by low utilization of sulfur and fast capacity fading of sulfur cathodes. The root causes are poor electronic conductivity of the cathode combined with high solubility of intermediate polysulf...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A14-023
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Phase I will confirm the safety benefits of newly developed lithium cobalt phosphate (LCP) as a high energy cathode material for rechargeable lithium ion batteries. LCP cathode fabrication will be scaled up in sufficient quantity to produce at least 20 prototype cells with >1Ah capacity. The prototype cells will support abuse tolerance eval...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 07A-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14
PI: Pu Zhang

Polymer binders play a key role in the cycle life and abuse tolerance of lithium ion batteries. Binder formulations are highly constrained by electrochemical stability and compatibility with established electrode manufacturing infrastructure and hygiene. This SBIR project develops a new aqueous binder system based on a polymer that supports high...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 08A-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14
PI: Pu Zhang

This SBIR Phase II project will result in new battery technology to reduce the cost and extend the range of electric vehicles. This addresses the two key barriers that are limiting electric vehicle adoption.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 08A-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13
PI: Jason Shi

With the promise of low cost and high capacity, silicon-based materials have emerged as the anode of the future for lithium ion batteries. Commercial success has been hindered by limited cycle life, expensive precursors and non-scalable processes. The overall approach will use low- cost microsilicon starting material and readily scalable methods...
