mPhase Receives 2006 Energy Storage Enabling Technology of the Year Award from Frost & Sullivan; Nanotechnology Leadership Cited For Second Consecutive Year
The Frost & Sullivan Energy Storage Enabling Technology of the Year Award is presented to a company "that has developed a technology that can benefit or revolutionize the industry." In selecting mPhase, Frost & Sullivan's Energy & Power Systems Group Director Sara Bradford said that mPhase's "pioneering battery design promises to revolutionize the portable reserve power storage market by yielding unprecedented micro and nanoscale devices able to be packaged as an integrated power source in system-on-a-chip configurations, while retaining reserve power for on demand activation potentially for decades."
“pioneering battery design promises to revolutionize the portable reserve power storage market by yielding unprecedented micro and nanoscale devices able to be packaged as an integrated power source in system-on-a-chip configurations, while retaining reserve power for on demand activation potentially for decades.”
Under an agreement with Bell Labs, the R&D arm of Lucent Technologies, the companies have created a prototype battery based on a Bell Labs discovery that liquid droplets of electrolyte will stay in a dormant state atop microscopic structures 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.
A presentation is scheduled September 25 at Frost & Sullivan's Best Practices Awards Banquet in San Antonio, Tex.
