mPhase Smart NanoBattery Published in IEEE/ASME Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems: Microfluidic Control Using MEMS Processing

Little Falls, NJ | Posted on March 2nd, 2011

The title of the paper, "Robust Si-Based Membranes for Fluid Control in Microbatteries Using Superlyophobic Nanostructures," is published in the IEEE/ASME Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems, a peer review technical journal describing leading edge research and development in areas involving Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) designs.

IEEE/ASME Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems was the number nine most-cited journal in electrical and electronics engineering in 2004, according to the annual Journal Citation Report (2004 edition) published by the Institute for Scientific Information.

The article describes technical details of how the silicon honeycomb membrane used in the Smart NanoBattery was prepared using MEMS-type processing and the evolution of the unique "nanonail" design features that enable superlyophobic (also called omniphobic, superolephobic) behavior on the surface of the silicon membrane. The article goes on to describe how a variety of low and high-surface-tension liquids were repelled by the porous membranes, without liquid penetrating into the pores of the membrane, and how this design has been applied in the development of a reserve battery using electrowetting for control of cell activation and triggering. The superlyophobic membrane designed and implemented by the mPhase team is the key element of mPhase's Smart NanoBattery technology.

The article on the Smart NanoBattery can be found online at the IEEE web site with the following URL: dx.doi.org/10.1109/JMEMS.2010.2090504. A copy of the article can also be found on the mPhase web site at www.mphasetech.com/pdfarticles/mphase_membranes.pdf
