mPhase Technologies (OTC: XDSL) today announced that it has signed a an extension of its original cooperative research agreement with Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, as related to lithium-based chemistries for a functional reserve microbattery prototype.

mPhase Technologies Extends Cooperative Research Agreement With Rutgers

Little Falls, NJ | Posted on February 13th, 2007

The amended statement of work represents an extension of a previous work plan which commenced in 2006, and enumerates a mutually agreed-upon menu of responsibilities and functional tasks that members of the Rutgers technical team will provide to mPhase going forward.

The work plan's focus is for the partners to develop and characterize a functional reserve microbattery prototype developed around lithium-based chemistries.

During the extended development period, mPhase and Rutgers have agreed to provide mutual assistance in applying for external grants to support their research as well as to participate in technical conferences to present their aggregate work.

"By extending our research agreement with mPhase, we continue to explore applications for the nanotechnology-based chemistries and structures that our group has developed for high-density energy storage," said Glenn Amatucci, director of the Energy Storage Research Group at Rutgers. "Our work is built on and contributes to the nanotechnology research leadership of the university's department of materials science and engineering."

Ron Durando, President and CEO of mPhase Technologies, said: "These are exciting times for us. Working alongside Rutgers renowned ESRG (Energy Storage Research Group will enhance the development of our Nanobattery."

The development agreement mPhase has with Rutgers continues to build on mPhase's current work to develop micro batteries that are capable of supporting a range of lithium based chemistries for applications requiring primary, reserve or rechargeable power systems. The batteries mPhase Technologies are developing can be either configured as individual power cells, or potentially configured in arrayed arrangements depending on the power needs of the electronic devices requiring power.

Initially the batteries are targeted for powering small electronic devices and other applications requiring long shelf life and controlled activation.


About mPhase Technologies, Inc.
mPhase Technologies Inc. (OTC: XDSL) develops and commercializes next-generation media-rich entertainment software and nanotechnology solutions, delivering novel systems to the marketplace that advance functionality and reduce costs.
