Abstract:
Leading microfluidics and nanotechnology specialist mPhase Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: XDSL), today said its breakthrough research in microfluidics on understanding how micro- and nanostructured surfaces could be engineered to have properties for repelling water and other types of liquids potentially used in consumer applications to enable self-cleaning surfaces such as shower doors or windows and other materials used in self-cleaning systems.

mPhase Platform Technology Breakthrough May Enable Self-Cleaning Surfaces

ST. GALLEN, SWITZERLAND | Posted on September 17th, 2008

The capability to produce a self-cleaning surface such as a self-cleaning shower door is an outgrowth of research based upon mPhase's breakthrough in manipulating microfluidics on a nanostructured surface, which led to the development of its Smart NanoBattery, recently the subject of a $749,700 grant from the US Army to produce a long life battery for powering memory chips used in a computer application.

"The self cleaning shower door application is being considered because it potentially is a low cost path to incorporate some of the scientific techniques learned from our research into a consumer product that can benefit from having an improved design for a surface that can be self cleaned," said Ronald A. Durando, CEO of mPhase Technologies Inc.

mPhase looks forward to developing other applications stemming from its breakthrough in controlling how liquids act on a nanostructured surface.
