Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), operated by Battelle Memorial Institute under contract to the U.S. Department of Energy, solicits interest from companies interested in obtaining license rights to commercialize, manufacture and market the following technology. License rights may be issued on an exclusive or nonexclusive basis and may include specific fields of use. PNNL may also be available to licensee(s) to assist in further research and development of the technology under a SPP agreement, ACT agreement, or CRADA agreement.

PNNL is performing research in the area of microbatteries and has developed systems and configurations that increase cell capacity, improve energy density, and contribute to large-scale manufacturability. Implementation of early versions of the microbatteries in acoustic transmitters for studying fish behavior demonstrate that the microbatteries have long-term shelf life and reliable performance. The most recent versions maximize the use of the very limited volume of microbatteries without sacrificing the utilization rate of the electroactive materials. The latest developments contribute to an improvement of 20% to 30% in capacity. PNNL's microbattery technologies are increasingly relevant as markets for downsized sensors, wearable devices, medical applications, and animal acoustic telemetry transmitters continue to grow.

For all inquiries, please reference Battelle IPID 31442.

NOTE: THIS IS NOT A PROCUREMENT. Any company interested in licensing this technology must respond with a letter of interest (may be submitted by e-mail) no later than thirty (30) days from the publication date of this Notice summarizing the company's business and technical expertise and motivation for pursuing this opportunity. Companies deemed appropriate will be provided with further information on the technology. Such information may require an executed Nondisclosure Agreement. Respondents wishing to enter into negotiations for a commercial license will be required to submit a business plan for the commercialization of the technology prior to licensee(s) selection and negotiations. Please send letters of interest to the attention of the POC identified within this Notice, referencing Battelle IPID 31442.
