mPhase Technologies Wins Spot Among Inaugural 'Nano 50' Innovators in Nanotechnology; Company Cited for its Smart NanoBatteries Under Development with Lucent Technologies' Bell Labs Unit
Under sponsorship of Nanotech Briefs, the digital magazine from the publishers of NASA Tech Briefs, a official engineering and design periodical of the National Aeronautics & Space Administration, the Nano 50 list of winning companies and individuals is described by the sponsors as "the 'best of the best' - the innovative people and designs that will move nanotechnology to key mainstream markets."
“the 'best of the best' - the innovative people and designs that will move nanotechnology to key mainstream markets.”
The winners will be honored at the Nano 50 Awards Dinner at Nano 2005, November 10-11, 2005, at the Boston Marriott, Newton, Mass.
mPhase was honored for its "Smart NanoBatteries" in the Technology category. The novel battery architecture is based on a discovery at the Bell Labs research and development unit of Lucent Technologies (NYSE:LU) that liquid droplets of electrolyte will stay in a dormant state atop microscopic structures called "nanograss" until stimulated to flow, thereby triggering a reaction producing electric current.
Future batteries based on this technology have the potential to deliver far longer shelf life and better storage capacity than existing battery technology. Potential initial applications for this technology may include defense, industrial, healthcare, and consumer electronics. mPhase is also targeting the nanobattery for use in a technically-improved, lighter weight battery designs.
This is the second major independent recognition this year garnered by mPhase for its nanotechnology leadership, having been awarded the 2005 Frost & Sullivan Excellence in Technology Award.
