Inc. (OTCBB:XDSL) today released photographs of its six inch silicon based
wafer that contains the key electrolyte separator membrane for the company's
The slotted dark areas that can be seen on the wafer are the porous honeycomb
membrane structures that allow the battery's liquid electrolyte to be controlled
in each of the twelve battery cells. Each of the individual slotted dark areas
(porous honeycomb membrane) contain approximately 17,000 extremely miniature
pores that the battery's liquid electrolyte will eventually pass through. Each
Smart NanoBattery is made up of twelve individual cells that are arranged in
a 4 X 3 array. Each battery contains approximately 203,000 pores and each six
inch wafer contains over 2 million pores.
A six inch silicon wafer contains the porous honeycomb membranes for ten Smart
NanoBatteries. The membrane is uniquely designed to only allow liquid to pass
through when the battery requires power. Until power is needed, the liquid electrolyte
will simply rest on top of the porous surface without any leakage.
"These photographs represent the creation of a man made material that
allows for the precise control of a fluid in the presence of a nanostructured
surface," said CEO Ron Durando. "We used advanced silicon processing
and MEMS technology to create this unique and remarkable structure that can
be used to improve reserve battery performance immensely."
