Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Reinforcement of Lightweight Material Castings with Dissimilar Metals

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Clause N. Xu, PhD
Award Amount: $99,996.00
Abstract:
The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will utlize ultrasonic vibrations during pouring of molten metal around a reinforcement insert placed in a mold and during solidification of the composite casting. The proposed processing route will help develop a defect-free… More

STTR PHASE I: Fabrication of Aluminum Matrix Nanocomposites

Agency: NSF
Research Institution: Purdue University
Principal Investigator: Clause Xu, PhD
Award Amount: $150,000.00
RI Contact: Qingyou Han
Abstract:
The Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project will develop a reliable and effective processing technique to produce a next-generation metal matrix composite comprised of aluminum oxide or silicon carbide nanoparticles dispersed in an aluminum alloy metal matrix. The proposed… More

SBIR Phase I: USV-Grain Refining

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Clause Xu, PhD
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project entitled ""USV-Grain Refining"" aims at advancing the grain refining technologies for the production of aluminum or magnesium alloy ingots or castings. Grain refining is usually one of the first processing steps for the production of metal and… More

SBIR Phase I: Reinforcement of Lightweight Material Castings with Dissimilar Metals

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Clause Xu, PhD
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to advance the cast-on technology for the metal casting industry to produce lightweight metal composite castings. Cast-on method is a cost effective method for the reinforcement of casting with dissimilar metals but suffers from… More
