Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-133
Budget: 09/30/08 - 01/31/12

In Phase I, we are examining materials that can be used to make tandem cells, with formulations that can be used on the process development coating machine. The goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of tandem modules with 6% efficiency. Phase II will begin mid-May 2008 with the goal of reproducible, 7% efficiency, tandem-cell module prototypes ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-133
Budget: 05/25/07 - 05/25/08

During the initial stages of Phase I of the Air Force program, Konarka Technologies will formulate solutions for all of the layers that comprise a single junction cell, and we will sequentially coat these layers on top of one another using the roll-to-roll, process development coating machine. The purpose of these experiments is to prevent de-we...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project has as its general objective the demonstration of a significant improvement in light to current conversion efficiency of solar cells. A successful demonstration of the approach that will be investigated in this project, namely, the combination of quantum dots and dyes, will provide n...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

This Small Business Innovation Research(SBIR) Phase II project aims to commercialize lightweight, flexible, affordable solar cells and modules that efficiently generate electricity from sunlight or indoor room light. These cells are based on dye-sensitized titania which is coated on a flexible substrate at high speed in a continuous coating, la...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Massachusetts Lowell

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

75880-This project will develop a novel energy converter for nuclear safeguards applications related to the monitoring of spent nuclear fuels. As a tamper-resistant, internally generated power source for safeguards monitoring, it will enable the use of other mature technologies to be applied for the real-time tracking and monitoring of spent nu...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Massachusetts Lowell

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-T004
Budget: 09/24/03 - 03/31/05

In Phase II research, KTI and UML propose to optimize conditions to prepare inexpensive, bioderived, quasi-solid electrolytes and prepare various 3,4-ethylenedioxy thiophene based polymeric derivatives as a catalytic coating on electrodes, using biocatalytic routes. Efficient gel electrolytes were developed using biocatalytic derived, highly ir...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Massachusetts Lowell

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-T004
Budget: 07/01/02 - 02/01/03

In Phase I STTR research, KTI and UMASS Lowell will demonstrate the feasibility of employing bioprocess synthesized macrodyes as well as redox gel electrolytes prepared from complexable macromolecules in dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). DSSCs offer design flexibilities, and cost advantage. KTI has already addressed most of the key issues in...
