License Grant
Assignor irrevocably assigns to Assignee all rights, title, and interest, including but not limited to, all patent rights with respect to the Technology, all rights to prepare derivative marks, all goodwill and all other rights, in and to the Technology.
License Property
Assignor, is the owner of certain technologies relating to the development of a nanowire based battery technology.

The technological development of a nanowire battery technology (detailed in patent application titled 'Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Battery Based on Nanostructures' [application # to be assigned by the US government patent office] and certain other patent applications to be filed) conducted by Dr. Choi, and all patents, intellectual property and additional developments resulting directly from this work, constitutes the Proprietary Rights under this Agreement.

Unlike conventional nickel metal hydride (NiMH) and silver zinc batteries, our lithium metal oxide nanowire-based lithium ion battery will have unlimited activated lifetime prior to launch and high reliability. Lithium metal oxides nanowires (e.g. LiCoO2 and LiNi1-XCoXO2) will be fabricated using electrochemical processing. Electrochemical fabrication of nanowires using anodized alumina nano-membranes as template materials is a very cost effective process that lends itself to manufacturability. The dimension of nanowires including the diameter and the length of nanowires can be precisely controlled and the structure of nanowires can be optimized to increase the capacities, with charge/discharge rates greater than 100 times that of conventional electrodes. Our fabrication processes also eliminate the need of a binder by fabricating the nanowires directly on top of the current collectors.

Assignor assigned all rights, title and interest in and to a patent application (serial number 11/089781, filed on March 25, 2005) for a battery technology developed by Dr. Sung H. Choi, our Technical Advisor.  This patent application, entitled Lithium Ion Rechargeable Battery Based on Nanostructures, was assigned to us by Dr. Choi in consideration for the issuance to him of an aggregate of 2,000,000 shares of our common stock plus an annual royalty of five percent of net sales of the products resulting from the technology.  We have certain minimum annual royalty payments to Dr. Choi pursuant to the Technology and Patent Assignment.

IPSCIO Record ID: 2021

License Grant
The Company held an exclusive under several US patents covering the coextruded wire and the coextrusion apparatus for producing composite wire for use in lead-acid battery applications.
License Property
Coextrusion is a process by which one material is extruded, or forced through a die, with uniform thickness, onto a core material passing simultaneously through the same die.  The process is capable of extruding lead (or lead alloy) onto any material having adequate tensile strength to pass at high speed through the pressurized dies.  Coextruded lead wire facilitates the use in lead-acid batteries of pure lead or extremely low concentration lead alloys.  The Company believes that grids made from such wire and used in lead-acid storage batteries have improved corrosion resistance and, therefore, longer life, or equivalent life with reduced total material content.
