23 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: DfR Solutions

Institution: Rochester Institute of Technology

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: MDA15-T005
Budget: 04/25/16 - 11/24/16

DfR Solutions and the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) have formed a team of experts in solder joint reliability and gold embrittlement to perform a series of experiments that will provide the data necessary to create mechanistic reliability models. Critical to any application of these models and of interpreting experimental results is th...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Microlink Devices

Institution: Rochester Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF13-AT13
Budget: 07/31/15 - 10/31/17

The Air Force, will benefit from the radiation-hard, lightweight, flexible, high-efficiency solar cells, which will enable greater capability on future spacecraft. Spacecraft will have a longer lifetime in high radiation orbits; alternatively, less radiation shielding, and hence less weight, will be required to provide the same endurance availab...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Simpore, Inc.

Institution: Rochester Institute of Technology

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BM
Budget: 07/01/15 - 06/30/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project relates to the treatment of end-stage renal disease, a significant health burden in the US. Trends are moving toward patient-managed, in-home treatments. The goal of this proposal is to accelerate adoption of safer home hemodialysis therapy ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: RAM Photonics

Institution: Rochester Institute of Technology

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T023
Budget: 08/04/14 - 06/04/15

Digital equalizers have been the major enablers in RF communications in terms of managing component imperfections and channel impairments. Specifically, the ever increasing processing power of the dedicating computing processors has availed a steady increase in the ability of complex communication systems to deal with impairments as well as allo...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: BioDrill Technical Solutions, LLC

Institution: Rochester Institute of Technology

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EA-2013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

This SBIR Phase I project proposes to create an innovative educational game that engages secondary school students in learning about the science of anaerobic digestion and the business of biogas production. The Simulated Anaerobic Digester Learning Tool is a casual, simulation-based game that teaches students about the physicochemical operation ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Microlink Devices

Institution: Rochester Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF13-AT13
Budget: 12/17/13 - 09/17/14

ABSTRACT: MicroLink and its collaborators, Rochester Institute of Technology and Magnolia Solar, will develop a high-efficiency, single-junction, epitaxial lift-off (ELO) GaAs solar cell by incorporating nano-scale features, such as quantum dots and optic

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Physical Sciences, Inc.

Institution: Rochester Institute of Technology

Agency: Army
Topic: A11A-T028
Budget: 02/19/13 - 02/13/14

Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and its academic partner, the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), will continue to advance the capability of RIT s DIRSIG hyperspectral scene simulation software to enable accurate prediction of LWIR reflectance characteristics of liquid-contaminated surfaces. DIRSIG reflectance model and software modifications...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: CFD Research Corp.

Institution: Rochester Institute of Technology

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-T005
Budget: 08/31/12 - 08/30/14

Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce mass, volume, and cost of DoD space missions. However, to achieve higher efficiency and radiation hardness of the best to date multi-junction photovoltaic (MJ PV) devices, several challenges must be addressed. This project aims to develop: 1) Quantum Well (QW)-based multi-junction cell technolog...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Microlink Devices

Institution: Rochester Institute of Technology

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-1-T3.01
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

We propose to develop a high-efficiency, triple-junction, epitaxial lift-off (ELO) solar cell by incorporating quantum dots (QDs) within the current-limiting subcell. We intend to leverage existing QD epitaxy processes developed by the Rochester Institute of Technology and combine this with MicroLink's expertise in multi-junction cell growth an...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Physical Sciences, Inc.

Institution: Rochester Institute of Technology

Agency: Army
Topic: A11A-T028
Budget: 12/12/11 - 06/12/12

Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and its academic partner, the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), will develop and test physics-based models for predicting long wavelength infrared (LWIR, 8 to 12 micro-m) reflectance and emittance spectra of surfaces co
