US Department of Defense awards NanoSD for ARMY SBIR

January 12, 2019

NanoSD was awarded for SBIR Phase I of US Army's Air Platform research.

NanoSD will develop a lightweight, hybridized dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) with nano-generator (NG) that is less sensitive to incident sunlight than conventional solar cells and is capable of converting electricity from turbulence and temperature difference generated at high altitude of an UAV unit in operation.

The multi-energy harvesting device will meet the power density per device of 10 mW/cm2 required to support the UAV platform to increase the flight time during the operation, and to provide auxiliary power to multifunctional sources on UAV.

US Companies Race to Commercialize Technologies for Cooling Fabrics

August 14, 2017

NanoSD has received attention from where collections of remarkable news of performance textiles and nonwovens are featured. Along with 6 other leading research facilities and companies, our DELTA project (collaboration with UCSD) was spotlighted for saving $500M a year by adjusting individuals' temperature by a mere 1°C.

More details about DELTA project can be found from DELTA news.

Collaboration Research with SolarReserve, an Awardee of CSP:APOLLO Project of DoE

January 01, 2017

Building upon the successful outcomes of the 2012 SunShot Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) Research & Development funding program, CSP: Advanced Projects Offering Low LCOE Opportunities (APOLLO) program aims to advance all components of CSP plant.

To break through current performance barriers, SolarReserve LLC, one of 14 awardees, teams up with UCSD and NanoSD engineers.

NanoSD has been awarded a major funding from DoE ARPA-E's SHIELD Project

March 18, 2016

ARPA-E announced $31 million in funding for 14 projects as part of ARPA-E’s newest program: Single-Pane Highly Insulating Efficient Lucid Design (SHIELD). SHIELD project teams are developing innovative window coatings and windowpanes that could significantly improve the energy efficiency of existing single-pane windows in commercial and residential buildings.

Joined partner with UC San Diego to Participate DELTA Project of DoE ARPA-e

December 01, 2015

Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy initiated "Delivering Efficient Local Thermal Amenities" (DELTA) Project to reduce the costs for heating and cooling buildings by developing Localized Thermal Management Systems (LTMS). LTMS modify the physical space around the human body rather than the entire building, with significant energy savings for both new and old buildings.
