Nano Technologies

Nanotechnology today is advancing very rapidly and has tremendous applications in almost everything we do. From medicines to the chemicals also long shelf batteries nanotech is been implemented.

Nanotechnology products are revolutionary, materials and applications. Most of the products that are on the market today are mostly improved products using evolutionary nanotechnology, where some form of Nano-enabled materials such as carbon nanotubes, nanocomposite structures or nanoparticles of a substance is used in the manufacturing process. Today even primary research and development that is happening in laboratories all over the world are mostly on Nanotech which helps build products way beyond your imagination.

What is Nanotechnology?

“Nanotechnology is the understanding and control of matter at dimensions between approximately 1 and 100 nanometres, where unique phenomena enable innovative applications. Utilizing nanoscale science, engineering, and technology, nanotechnology involves imaging, measuring, modelling, and manipulating matter at this length scale."

We at mPhase, are focusing on commercializing its first Smart Surface enabled product for military and commercial applications: The Smart Nano Battery providing Power on Command. A Battery with chemicals isolated from the electrode by Nano grass when the battery is not in use.

By applying nanotechnology in the manufacture of batteries a few benefits arise:

  • Increasing the available power from a battery and decreasing the time expected to recharge a battery. This is achieved by coating the surface of an electrode with nanoparticles. This widens the surface area of the electrode thereby allowing more current to flow between the electrode and the chemicals inside the battery. This method could increase the efficiency of hybrid vehicles by significantly reducing the weight of the batteries needed to provide adequate power.
  • Enhancing the shelf life of a battery by using nanomaterials to separate liquids in the battery from the solid electrodes when the battery is not in use. This separation blocks the low-level discharge that occurs in a standard battery, which increases the shelf life of the battery.
  • Lithium-ion batteries with electrodes made from nanostructured lithium that considerably improves the charge/discharge capacity at sub freezing temperatures as well as increasing the upper-temperature limit at which the battery remains secure from thermal runaway.

mPhase has demonstrated it is possible to fabricate nanotech-based “smart” batteries, which stores reserve power for decades and generate electric current virtually on demand. And henceforth using Nanotechnology for manufacturing batteries is helping advance the functionality, reduce costs and usage of conventional batteries which gives less battery life.
