mPhase Technologies Plays Prominent Role at NASA Tech Briefs Nano 2005 Conference, as Both Giver and Taker
|Company's Senior R&D Executive Gives Talk on Nanotechnology-Based Battery Development and Later Accepts Nano 50 Award for Its Design|
“the 'best of the best' - the innovative people and designs that will move nanotechnology to key mainstream markets.”
mPhase Technologies (OTC: XDSL) is playing a prominent role in a major nanotechnology industry gathering this week in Newton, Mass. as a major sponsor, conference participant and recipient of a prestigious new award for innovation in nanotechnology.
At the NASA Tech Briefs Nano 2005 Engineering Conference, Steve Simon, mPhase's executive vice president for research and development, is giving a talk about the company's development of a "smart" battery that is based on microscopic nanostructures. His participation on the Power and Energy panel session is designed to help conference attendees better understand the scientific innovation and characteristics in order to determine whether the battery can be applied as a nanoscale engineering solution to real-world problems in aerospace, power and energy, bio-medicine, defense and security, and related fields.
mPhase is a Silver sponsor of the conference, which attracts leading design engineers and technology managers throughout major industries looking to apply nanotechnology in product development. The November 10-11 event is being held at the Marriott Boston Newton.
Simon has oversight responsibility for mPhase's nanobattery, and on behalf of the company is accepting the Nano 50 Award for innovation in its design at an inaugural awards dinner tomorrow. The awards recognize the top 50 technologies, products, and innovators that have significantly impacted - or are expected to impact - the state of the art in nanotechnology. Nominations were judged by a panel of nanotechnology experts, and, according to the sponsors, the winners represent "the 'best of the best' - the innovative people and designs that will move nanotechnology to key mainstream markets." Additional information is available at the NASA Nanotech Briefs website, http://www.nanotechbriefs.com/nano50_winners.html.
