RICHMOND, VA. (AP) - Two Virginia companies will receive $1 million federal grants to advance clean energy developments.
Charlottesville's Virginia Diodes Inc. will use the grant money to research equipment for a fusion science experiment, developing a high frequency receiver system required for its diagnostic instruments.
Fm Technologies Inc. in Chantilly will use its grant to develop high efficiency, high-power sources for use particularly in cancer treatments. The power sources are expected to be more compact, more energy efficient, last longer and provide improved cancer therapy treatment.
