Award List:

Inexpensive Large Scale Manufacturing of High Specific Modulus and Strength Ceramic Fibers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Joseph Pegna, Chief Scientist
Award Amount: $69,989.00
Abstract:
This ARMY SBIR Phase I project will determine the best opto-mechanical approach for massively parallel Laser Chemical Vapor Deposition of ceramic fibers by building on work already performed at RPI, Univ of Montreal, and Free Form Fibers (FFF). Ceramic fibers are typically produced using polymeric… More

SBIR Phase I: The Digital Spinneret

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Joseph Pegna
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will determine optimal process parameters for massively parallel Laser Chemical Vapor Deposition (LCVD) of silicon carbide fibers by building on work already performed at the proposing company, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and the… More

Silicon Carbide/Boron Nitride Dual In-Line Coating of Silicon Carbide Fiber Tows

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Joseph Pegna, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
This SBIR Phase I project will demonstrate monolayer and dual layer coating of SiC fiber by leveraging Laser Chemical Vapor Deposition techniques developed by Free Form Fibers for direct fiber production. Ceramic fibers, particularly SiC, must be coated in order to protect the fibers from oxidizing… More

SBIR Phase II: The Digital Spinneret

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Joseph Pegna
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will build upon recent advances in nanotechnology and laser processing of materials to pursue the large-scale production of stoichiometrically pure silicon carbide (SiC) fibers which are very difficult to obtain by other means. The… More

SBIR Phase I: Designing an Immune System Response Into High-Temperature Ceramic Matrix Composite Materials (CMC)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Joseph Pegna
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is designed to evaluate a novel interphase nanocoating designed for Silicon Carbide (SiC) fibers, which is intended to behave as a biomimetic immune system for high-temperature Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs) exposed to an oxidizing… More
