BroadBit has invented two high performance battery families based on our novel metallic sodium chemistries: Hi-Energy batteries with twice the energy per weight (400 Wh/kg) as Li-ion and Hi-Power batteries with five times the power per weight (2000 W/kg) as Li-ion. Our performance and commercial development status will be presented.
Speaker Biography (David Brown)
It has always been Dr. Brown's belief that important innovations should be commercialized to the benefit of society and he has avidly promoted the link between basic research and broad commercial application.
He is currently the co-founder and CEO of BroadBit Batteries and has been a Fulbright Fellow (atmospheric physics) and a co-founder and former CEO of Canatu (www.canatu.com : carbon nanomaterial based films for electronics, optics and energy production and storage), Teicos Pharma (www.teicospharma.com : formulation of pharmaceuticals for delivery to the lungs), Almakor (www.almakor.com : Optical fiber manufacturing processes) and StreamWise (www.streamwisecfd.eu : computer simulation of gas/particle systems).
He has more than 180 scientific articles, 200 granted and pending patents and 250 invited talks on, for instance, thin film electronics, entrepreneurship, nanotechnology, carbon nanotubes and NanoBud®, synthesis and deposition of nanomaterials, drug delivery and nano-formulations, nuclear safety and modeling and algorithms for designing and characterizing materials and aerosol processes. He has also worked as an advisor and independent contractor for many important technology players including Honda, Du Pont, Daikin, Kemira, NASA, the Finnish National Research Centre and the Paul Scherrer Institute.
