The project team adapted the strategy that a carnivorous plant uses for creating robust low-friction surfaces. The approach is to create a surface layer that is porous at the nanometer scale, and then fill the pores with a low-friction fluid. To manufacture such coatings economically, the Harvard team developed methods to create low-cost nano-structured coatings on a variety of surfaces.

The iBeam Materials team’s goal is to develop a scalable manufacturing method to produce low-cost (10x reduction) GaN LED devices on flexible metal foils for use in solid-state lighting.

The original goals for this project were to create a small-scale (12,000 BTU/hr) air conditioning system that uses low GWP refrigerants while delivering a high COP at competitive cost. ITC began with a model-based technical and economic analysis to create a blueprint for the commercialization of the Stirling-based device.

The Integral team’s project objective was to achieve wave-by-wave measurement accuracy comparable to commercial off the shelf (COTS) wave measurement devices for wave height, period, and direction at a tenth of the cost.

To address this challenge, the LanzaTech team designed and built a new type of microbubble reactor, which combines a novel device for microbubble formation with a reactor geometry and liquid circulation approach which has dramatically increased gas mass transfer coefficients by nearly one order of magnitude above that in state-of-the-art gas liquid bioreactors.

Incremental advances in wind turbine technology will continue to be made by making turbines slightly larger and reducing traditional methods of supply chain costs. Transformative impacts are possible by completely reimagining wind power based on an airborne platform. The key insight is that the outermost 25% of a turbine blade delivers over 50% of the power. If the trajectory of an airborne generator can be made to follow the path of a conventional blade’s tip, then this power can be harvested without building the non-productive infrastructure of a wind tower.

Under ARPA-E support, the MIT project addressed all three areas needed to improve power conversion: switching devices, inductors, and circuit design. The goals of the project team were: to exploit the potential of GaN for high-power switching in practical, reliable devices; to create high-frequency inductors by developing new materials and designs, and to create overall circuit designs for power converters that optimally integrated the new components.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) led team’s goal was to produce an infrastructure compatible fuel starting from CO2 and H2, or carbon monoxide (CO), instead of sugars.

The MIT team’s goal was to develop an advanced thermo-adsorptive battery (ATB) that is both compact (30 liter) and lightweight (<35 kg) for climate control in an EV.

Working within the ARPA-E SWITCHES program, Monolith Semiconductor’s project goals are to develop 1) high performance SiC-based power diodes and transistors operating at 1200 V and 100 A, and 2) a high-volume, low-cost manufacturing process that is capable of delivering the devices at low cost (≤ $0.10/A). The Monolith team’s approach is to design SiC devices and fabrication processes that are compatible with existing high-volume silicon manufacturing facilities to help drive down the cost of SiC devices.&#13; &#13;
