The grants include a $992,328 grant to Durham-based Xemed Inc. and a $997,091 grant to Lebanon-based Cognitive Electronics Solutions Inc.
Xemed's project involves instrumentation and tools for materials research using “neutron scattering,” while Cognitive Electronics' project is in energy efficient supercomputing.
The Energy Department grants — funded through the Energy Department's Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer programs — are specifically earmarked for expanding the country's clean energy economy and reducing dependence on imported oil.
