mPhase uses smart surface to create 'Smart Nanobattery'

Keywords:multi-cell batter? mPhase? Smart Nanobattery?

mPhase has created what it dubbed the Smart Nanobattery, a multi-cell battery using an electrolyte reservoir bonded to the company's patented, porous, silicon based smart surface.

The company said the reservoir-smart surface combo was then bonded to a glass and silicon electrode assembly and populated with the electrode stacks consisting of lithium and carbon monofluoride materials. Next, they were filled with the electrolyte and sealed airtight. Finally, they were attached to special circuit boards for testing and characterization studies, which included triggering and activation of each of the independent battery cells via electrowetting, which gives the mPhase reserve battery one of its key attributesprogrammable triggering. The design of the multi-cell battery gives each cell a very long shelf until it is triggered.

A Phase II STTR Army award funded the development of the Smart Nanobattery.
