National Science Foundation Increases SBIR Grant to Selah Technologies

(Nanowerk News) Selah Technologies, an advanced materials manufacturer, announced today that the company has received an additional $50,000 SBIR Phase IB grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to fund continued development activities for the company’s Selah Tubes™ nanotechnology. This amendment brings the total NSF support to $150,000.
Selah was recently notified of the award as part of the NSF’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. “The awarding of this grant amendment is continued validation of the merits of the Selah’s nanotechnology in the commercial arena,” said Dr. Andrew Metters, Chief Technology Officer for Selah, who will coordinate, manage and lead the project.
The grant supports the specific project titled “Bulk Production of Metallic-Enriched Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes for Creation of Nanocomposite Thin Films with Improved Performance Characteristics Compared to ITO,” Metters said.
Selah Technologies obtained a worldwide exclusive license in 2006 from Clemson University to develop and commercialize two platform nanotechnologies branded Selah Dots™ and Selah Tubes™. Selah Dots™ are carbon-based quantum dots that can be used for various applications, including life sciences, solar cells and anticounterfeiting, among others. Selah Tubes™, enriched carbon nanotubes, have a number of applications due to their impressive electrical conductivity properties.
