Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-12-088
Budget: 08/01/15 - 07/31/16

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Optogenetic tools for activating and silencing specific neurons embedded within dense brain networks, in a temporally precise fashion using light, are key to understanding the roles that specific neurons play in behavior, neural computation, and disease. In our Phase I SBIR, Ferro Solutions and the Boyden lab...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-09-080
Budget: 04/01/11 - 09/30/12

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The use of DBS to treat movement disorders could be improved if i) there existed a more efficient and less intrusive means of delivering power wirelessly, ii) the probes had improved therapy localization and functionality (e.g. multiple, independently addressable electrodes), and iii) feedback to monitor e...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2010
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase-I project will develop micro-electro-mechanical-systems (MEMS) comprised of engineered magneto-electric (ME) materials to enable wireless power transfer systems for medical implants. Engineered ME materials are composites of magnetostrictive (M) and electro-active (E) components that convert m...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2010
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project takes a new approach to detecting time-dependent fields for communication in cases where RF signals are strongly attenuated, such as in mines, caves, tunnels, and dense building environments. It is known that lower-frequency electromagnetic (EM) waves or magnetic near fields (MNF) ar...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-09-080
Budget: 04/15/10 - 03/31/11

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The use of DBS to treat movement disorders could be improved if i) there existed a more efficient and less intrusive means of delivering power wirelessly, ii) the probes had improved therapy localization and functionality (e.g. multiple, independently addressable electrodes), and iii) feedback to monitor e...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Carnegie Mellon University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-T020
Budget: 12/23/09 - 06/22/11

Ferro Solutions has demonstrated in Phase I that ferro fluids can be used to create a self-pumping cooling system that can extend the life and improve performance of highpower transducers or other electro-mechanical devices. In the Phase I demonstration a resistor submerged in a ferrofluid was powered so that its temperature increased to over 12...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Microelectronics Agency
Topic: DMEA-092-003
Budget: 11/18/09 - 05/28/10

In this Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project, Amsen Technologies is teamed with the Center for Advanced Materials (CAM) of University of Houston to develop a process to fabricate BST thin film capacitors with reduced series resistance through an innovative interface optimization strategy. The overall objective of the present inno...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-109
Budget: 11/03/09 - 11/03/11

Environmental factors can strongly attenuate electromagnetic waves, degrading communication distance, data rate, signal-to-noise ratio and reliability of RF systems. Magnetic near-fields are an attractive alternative to propagating electromagnetic wave communication because the former are not negatively impacted in environments that interfere w...
