Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-025
Budget: 07/21/16 - 01/20/17

MSRI proposes to demonstrate the concept of magnetic-field assisted texturing in ferrite materials. Aligned microstructure will allow for significantly enhanced magnetic properties. Samples will be prepared by nanopowder synthesis and low temperature sintering.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy
Topic: DE-FOA-0000674
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

The sodium battery using beta-alumina solid electrolyte is one of the most promising grid-scale electrical energy storage technologies that can balance the short-duration variability in renewable generation. Despite many advantages, the sodium batteries have several barriers for successful commercialization, mainly related to safety issues and h...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy
Topic: 1-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

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 in...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-X1.02
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12
PI: Greg Tao

This small business innovation research is intended to develop a long-life, highly efficient O2-CO cogeneration system to support NASA's endeavors to pursue extraterrestrial exploration (Moon, Mars, and Asteroids/Phobos). The cogeneration system will be built using a Tubular, Negative Electrode-supported Solid-Oxide Electrolysis Cell (Tune-SOEC...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 21 C-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12
PI: Greg Tao

SOFC technology promises to provide an efficient method by which electricity can be generated from coal-derived syngas, biofuels, and natural gas, while increasing energy security and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The large capital costs attributed to the cathode low performance and long-term stability issues are a current limitation of SOF...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project is to develop a planar, highly compact, sodium-beta rechargeable battery using sodium-ion conducting beta?- alumina solid electrolyte (Na-BASE) sandwiched between liquid sodium and nickel chloride-based salt, (a p-ZEBRA battery). The commercially available sodium-beta batteries are all con...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-065
Budget: 03/14/11 - 03/19/12

ABSTRACT: Highly reliable power supply technologies are needed for future arming and fuzing system designs. These power supplies should be able to operate after a long dormant period of up to twenty years. A novel battery power supply is proposed for this purpose. The proposed battery utilizes a solid state electrolyte which would have indefi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A10-070
Budget: 02/17/11 - 08/22/11

The sulfur content of JP-8 fuel varies in a wide range up to 3000 ppm and it is detrimental to a fuel cell based auxiliary power units. The concentration of sulfur must be closely monitored to allow the APU to fully function within specification. A highly selective solid-state electrochemical sensor is suitable for continuous monitoring of sulfu...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Utah

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-T003
Budget: 12/31/09 - 07/01/11

This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase II proposal from Materials and Systems Research, Inc. (MSRI) and University of Utah (research institution) seeks to fabricate single-phase, polycrystalline tungstate ceramics with densities greater than 99.95% and a mean grain size of less than 1 um. These ceramics have been chosen be...
