mPhase Researcher will report on Nanobattery at the Nano Science and Technology Institute

NORWALK, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 11, 2005--mPhaseTechnologies Inc. (OTC: XDSL) today announced that its leadresearcher, Victor Lifton, will present a paper, “Atoms to products -a nanostructured novel battery, ” at the Nano Science and TechnologyInstitute Conference and Trade Show in Anaheim, California.

Dr. Lifton will report on the progress of the mPhase plan tofabricate nanotech-based batteries, which can generate electriccurrent. The project is based on a joint program with Bell Labs, theR&D arm of Lucent Technologies.

The novel battery is based on a Bell Labs discovery that liquiddroplets of electrolyte will stay in a dormant state atop microscopicstructures called “nanograss” until stimulated to flow, therebytriggering a reaction producing electric current.

“We are especially excited about the ability to use variousbattery chemistries and take advantage of the special characteristicsof Nanograss, ” Lifton said.

Future batteries based on this technology have the potential todeliver far longer shelf life and better storage capacity thanexisting battery technology. Potential initial applications for thistechnology may include defense, industrial, healthcare, and consumerelectronics. mPhase is also targeting the nanobattery for use in atechnically-improved, lighter weight battery designs.

Dr. Lifton joined mPhase Technologies Inc. in June, 2004, following positions at Kulite Semiconductor Products, Inc., as aManager of Semiconductor Processing and Lucent Bell Labs, as a Memberof the Technical Staff in MEMS Fabrication Research Lab. He has a Ph.Din Materials Science from Stevens Institute of Technology where he wonthe Morton M. Traum Award for Excellence.

Dr. Lifton has designed and fabricated various optical MEMSmicrodevices and conducted electrochemical studies of porous Si andSiC as novel sensing materials and process control ofsemiconductor-based sensors for pressure transducers, processdevelopment for novel sensor architectures using SOI and thick pastetechnology, and novel materials and packaging methods for nextgeneration sensors.

mPhase and Lucent announced an agreement in March 2004, underwhich mPhase plans to commercialize the nanobattery under license fromLucent. mPhase projects its nanobattery to be commercially availablein 12-18 months, and plans to produce the technology packaged invarious configurations. A primary development goal is to create abattery that could have a shelf life lasting decades, yet can beactivated instantaneously.
