A service lab offering FIB (focused ion beam) and other microscopy services to NanoResearchers who do not have their own equipment - for the purposes of direct nano-fabrication of devices for test and analysis.
NanoSight manufacture unique instruments for visualisation and sizing of nanoparticles in liquid suspensions. Using Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA), particle size distributions are measured by sizing particles on an individual basis by observing Brownian motion.
nanoTherics Ltd was formed in August 2007 to exploit a novel gene transfection technology arising from biomedical research at Keele University and the University of Florida. The patented technology uses nanoparticles and magnetic fields to facilitate the delivery of foreign DNA into living cells.
Nexeon has patented a unique way of structuring silicon so that it delivers extended cycle life and significantly increases battery capacity. In contrast to carbon, Nexeon's silicon anode materials have a much higher capacity for lithium and as a result are capable of almost ten times the gravimetre capacity per gram (mAh/g).
Nima Technology manufacture scientific instruments for the fabrication and characterisation of thin films. The company's instruments can fabricate films with a thickness as small as a couple of nanometres, just one molecule thick.
Provides instrumentation and consulting for measurement of surface roughness, waviness and shape; layer thickness and optical properties ranging from the sub-nanometer to the cm scales along with surface modification and laser lithography.
Ossila was founded by organic electronics research scientists with the aim of providing the components, equipment and materials (including nanomaterials such as fullerenes) to enable faster and smarter research and discovery.
The company develops and commercialises advanced materials and technology solutions across a range of markets including: Electronics (PCB's, plastic electronics, electromechanical devices and flat displays); Industrial specialties (specialty fibres, textiles, laminates and composites); Life sciences/health care markets (including sterile surfaces, separation media and microarrays, biomedical materials); and Low Carbon Technologies (photovoltaics, advanced lighting, fuel cells).
