mPhase Technologies Nanobattery and Magnetometer to be Highlighted at nanoTX '06; Company's Sponsorship of Conference/Expo Demonstrates Commitment to Nanotechnology R&D
NanoTX '06 is one of the industry's elite conferences and exhibitions, and a national and international showcase for today's burgeoning nanotechnology enterprises and research institutions. At the event, mPhase will focus on its development of a revolutionary nano-structured battery and an ultra-sensitive device called a magnetometer.
“the cell phone remains the dangling carrot for gyroscopes, but they are still too expensive for this application.”
At Booth 6044, mPhase will highlight the features and benefits of a prototype nanotechnology-based battery. The "smart" battery, which is able to withhold electrochemical reactions and prevent power dissipation until activated, is expected to have an exceedingly long shelf life and set new levels for miniaturization and flexibility.
The magnetometer development has yielded a small prototype, about the width of the date on a Lincoln penny, that has already proven a degree of sensitivity far greater than conventional un-cooled detectors. The initial Micro-Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) prototype is a single-axis detector of magnetic field changes, but in the future could be developed into a multi-axis, compass-like system for detecting direction. Such a capability could be used to enhance mobile phone global positioning (GPS) technology, at a cost far below currently available but bulky gyroscopes. In its recent report, "MEMS Inertial Sensors go Consumer," WTC Consulting stated that "the cell phone remains the dangling carrot for gyroscopes, but they are still too expensive for this application." With its very small footprint, combined by low-cost fabrication in silicon, mPhase expects its solution to add less than $5 in bill of materials - within the business case defined by WTC's research.
More than 10,000 visitors are expected to attend the nanoTX '06, which will feature internationally renowned business leader and two-time Presidential candidate Ross Perot as its keynote speaker. mPhase joins Fortune 500 companies including Applied Technologies, Lockheed Martin and Texas Instruments as event sponsors.
