The video shows how smart surfaces materials have been used to develop a miniature reserve battery that has a very long shelf life, and which can be electronically triggered to turn on under programmable control, and how this technology can potentially be expanded to other non battery applications, such as the delivery of drugs or smart filters. The accompanying photography shows a smart porous silicon membrane created by the mPhase team that can repel both aqueous and many non-aqueous liquids. In this example, 12 individual droplets of water are sitting on top of a 3x4 array of silicon material that has been etched into a membrane structure containing thousands of microscopic holes which repel the liquid from passing through the pores of the membrane. Under controlled conditions, the liquid can be made to pass through the pores of the membrane, such that the liquid can interact with materials or chemicals that are located below the surface of the membrane. The video segment goes on to show how the smart surface components can be assembled using semiconductor packaging methods, into a reserve battery containing lithium chemistry, that was developed under a recently funded government grant, as a power source used in computer memory backup.
"We are continuing to make significant strides in the development of the smart surfaces technology and advancing the prototyping work for specific applications," said Ron Durando, president and CEO of mPhase Technologies.
