Pixelligent Featured as a DoE SBIR/STTR Success Story

We are honored to be featured as a “Success Story” by the Office of Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) Programs. We share the spotlight with innovators who are continuing our nation’s proud tradition of pioneering breakthrough technologies and even shaping new industries.

Funded by the US Department of Energy, the Office of SBIR/STTR Programs publishes the success stories to “highlight small businesses that have successfully transitioned their SBIR/STTR funded technology to Phase III. Phase III refers to work that derives from, extends, or completes an effort made under prior SBIR/STTR Funding agreements, but is funded by sources other than the SBIR/STTR programs. Phase III work is typically oriented towards commercialization of SBIR/STTR research or technology, including through further research and development work.”

Over the years, the successive grants provided essential early funding that helped us develop our advanced materials, or as our CTO, Z. Serpil Gonen Williams, PhD, says: “grow way past the ‘five grams in the lab’ model”. It kept us on a steady innovation trajectory as we strengthened our financial position with successful capital-raising initiatives. In addition, the programs helped us forge close collaborations with partners — from universities and national labs, to leading technology companies — that enabled us to test, refine and scale our technology for mass production.

Today, our materials are used by global companies to drive advancements in consumer electronics products like extended reality devices, as well as OLED displays, sensors, and other applications.

We are grateful for the DoE’s enduring support, their wise counsel, and their confidence in our mission. We are proud to be recognized for our world-class innovation, for building a team of experts that is committed to growing our portfolio of breakthrough materials, and for contributing in ways big and small to the Baltimore community we call home.
