LITTLE FALLS, NJ /Marketwire/ -- mPhase Technologies Inc. said that it is exploring complementing its Smart NanoBattery with new printing technologies, using graphene and other advanced new materials.
On July 17, 2012, mPhase announced an official agreement to jointly pursue business opportunities with government projects involving the research of graphene-based methods for the ink jet printing of batteries and electronic circuits with a leading technology university.
Successfully implementing mPhase's Smart NanoBattery technology with new material and printing technologies could lead to better energy densities, more flexible structures, lower prototyping costs, and lower production costs.
Graphene has been described as the "miracle material" of the 21st Century and is believed to be stronger than steel and more conductive than copper while being flexible, making it plausible as a vast improvement over silicon, possibly leading to thinner, faster, cheaper, more flexible devices, including power sources. Because graphene comes from the carbon atom, it is abundant and cheap.
In 2010, the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov for groundbreaking experiments regarding graphene.
