Inc. (OTCBB:XDSL - News) reported today that it has achieved an important
research milestone in the development of its Smart NanoBattery Technology. In
its laboratory, mPhase has successfully tested a polymer coating that improves
the ability to control activation of its Smart NanoBattery. The polymer coating
material will also prevent short circuiting and provide electrical isolation
on conductive surfaces.
The polymer coating was applied to multi-array silicon membranes consisting
of 12 "smart cells" on a single chip. The mPhase team is working with
its silicon foundry partner to replicate these results in a foundry production
environment, which should allow for more consistent and uniform development
of the membrane structures. The coating is applied to a membrane inside the
battery that physically separates the liquid electrolyte and solid electrodes
inside the battery, enabling potentially infinite shelf life. The membrane's
unique nanostructure and microfluidic properties allow for precise control of
the movement of a liquid on the surface of the membrane and through its pores.
mPhase is expected to introduce this recent advancement during their 8:15AM
session at today's Smart Grid Implementation Summit. The company will be alongside
leaders from General Electric, Intel, and Deloitte to discuss innovative ideas
and developments in smart grid technology. The Smart NanoBattery has been recognized
to have significant potential in smart grid networks.
"We are proud of our technical team and their achievements and continue
to work diligently and methodically in advancing this unique battery technology,"
said mPhase CEO Ron Durando. "This advancement marks another important
milestone and creates the potential for developing batteries with an unsurpassed
shelf life that can be electronically controlled."
The Smart NanoBattery is being developed as part of the U.S. Army STTR Program.
mPhase was awarded $750,000 for a two year Phase II development contract by
the U.S. Army in September 2008 to develop this unique new battery technology
for military purposes.
mPhase Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:XDSL - News), through its wholly owned subsidiary
AlwaysReady, Inc., is focused on developing and commercializing a new battery
technology based on a well-patented phenomenon known as electrowetting, which
provides a unique way to store energy and manage power that will revolutionize
the battery industry. For more information, please visit our website at www.mPhaseTech.com.
