Phase Focus is bringing to market a range of products and services based on its proprietary Phase Focus Virtual Lens - a disruptive technology that is revolutionising the performance of imaging instrumentation and bringing new user value to a wide range of analytical applications from stain-free cell imaging and quantitative electron phase microscopy to ophthalmic lens metrology and beyond. By eliminating the need for conventional focussing devices, the Virtual Lens enables new applications and novel analytical capabilities in markets as diverse as life sciences and semiconductor process control, and in multiple wavelength regimes - visible light, X-ray, electron, and more.
Plastic Logic is a leader in plastic electronics manufacturing, a revolutionary new technology for printing electronic devices. The company will be the first to apply the new technology to a fully commercial application: flexible active-matrix displays.
This spin-out company from the University of Nottingham has developed a unique reactor technology to allow unprecedented product control and flexibility in inorganic nanoparticle dispersion manufacture.
Spun out of Cambridge University in mid 2004 to commercialize research findings in the areas of advanced nano-enabled materials, specifically in the area of carbon nanotube materials and their applications.
QFT has developed a new form of field emission backplane which gives highly uniform electron emission with low threshold voltage and no need for conditioning. The backplane is manufactured from amorphous silicon and its unique field emission characteristics are created by a simple proprietary engineering process which is free of any lithographic steps.
