University of Houston gets $1.2 million grant for alternative energy research

nd can be costly.

"People want dynamic changes in solar power. They want real-world applications developed quickly," Curran said.

Curran's team also will be working on developing nanosensors for wind turbine systems. These sensors could be embedded in offshore wind turbines, making it possible to monitor the system's structural "health" from a distance.

The nanosensors are based on polymer-nanotube composites, using their electrical properties as a way to detect changes in environmental conditions. In 1998, Curran published the first nanotube-polymer composite paper in Advanced Materials dealing with the electronic nature of such materials. That evolutionary step has taken over a decade to come to fruition. Along the way, Curran reported high conductivity composites in 2009 in the Journal of Applied Physics, and the next stage is to build the embedded sensors.

The University of New Mexico's Anderson School of Management will lead the work in building a business roadmap for the new technologies developed by researchers at UH and the Naval Research Laboratory.
