mPhase to explore approaches for optimizing the design of the MEMS Smart silicon membrane.

mPhase Technologies, Inc. has reported that it has been granted access to use the technical facilities at the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM), Argonne National Labs, Illinois, based on the acceptance of a technical proposal submitted for user-initiated nanoscience & nanotechnology research.

mPhase plans on using the opportunity to conduct technical analysis and refinement of the smart surfaces technology developed by mPhase, using sophisticated laboratory tools not readily available to small businesses.

Access to this world class government research facility will allow mPhase to continue to explore approaches for optimizing the design of the MEMS Smart silicon membrane, a key component of the mPhase Smart NanoBattery and other smart surface applications under consideration.

mPhase Smart NanoBattery design uses electrowetting and microfluidic techniques to selectively activate and control the power generated by the cells in the reserve battery.

According to Argonne National Labs, the CNM nanoscience & nanotechnology research program provides users with access to a broad range of capabilities for design, synthesis, characterization, and theory & modeling in order to significantly advance the understanding of nanoscale phenomena and develop functional nanoscale systems.

"This opportunity represents an important technical achievement for mPhase in creating new approaches for designing batteries that can be used in applications requiring long shelf life, high availability and other programmable factors," said mPhase CEO, Ron Durando.

Durando continued, "The acceptance of our proposal gives mPhase access to world class laboratory facilities where we can further improve our technical designs and help to accelerate the commercialization of our Intellectual Property for batteries and other applications."
