SMALL BUSINESS TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER PROGRAMPHASE I GRANT APPLICATIONS SELECTED FOR FY 2008 AWARDS BY TOPIC
TOPIC: ADVANCED COAL RESEARCH
Applied Nanotech, Inc. Advanced Coal Research, New CO2 Monitoring Devices
Scientists have proposed reducing greenhouse gas by injecting carbon dioxide (CO2) into geologic subsurface structures. Sophisticated monitoring tools are essential to track CO2 in the geologic structures and assure safe retention. This project will develop and field test an improved CO2 sensor.
TOPIC: SOLAR ENERGY
Applied Nanotech, Inc. Solar Energy, Materials Solutions for Cells and Modules
This project will develop metal nanoparticle inks and processes for printing photovoltaic cells, thus lowering the costs of fabrication while maintaining or improving cell performance over conventional techniques.
