Ultrafast and short-pulsed fiber laser technology for commercial and research applications, enabling a multitude of new applications in microscopy, high-speed testing, metrology, medical imaging, micromachining and pulsed laser deposition for nanoparticles and thin-films.
In-Q-Tel was established as an independent, private, not-for-profit company to help the CIA and the greater US Intelligence Community (IC) to identify, acquire, and deploy cutting-edge technologies. One area of focus is nanotechnology.
A spin off founded to commercialize FDEC FET nano sensor technology invented at Arizona State University.The novel nano sensor technology is capable of exponential capacitive transduction for ultra high sensitivity molecular detection, coupled with exceptional selectivity.
Industrial Hard Carbon thin film coatings are characterized by extreme hardness, lubricity, high wear resistance, high corrosion resistance and a number of other useful qualities. The films are deposited by a proprietary plasma-assisted chemical vapor deposition process. Far different from the diamond-like and carbide thin films familiar to many in the coating industry, IHC films are created from layers of nano-crystalline diamond and nano-crystalline silicon carbide in an amorphous matrix of both elements.
Industrial Sonomechanics offers high-intensity industrial ultrasonic liquid processors for the production of nanoemulsions and nano-particle suspensions for pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food, ink, paint, coating, wood product and metalworking industries.
An independent contract research organization providing research, analysis, consultation and technology development services to public and private entities throughout North America. Capabilites include nanoscale materials.
InStep NanoPower have developed an inexpensive simple high-power energy harvester capable of converting mechanical energy to electrical power providing up to 20 Watts, which can dramatically extend the capabilities and operational times of a wide range of mobile electronic devices. The mechanical energy is converted to electrical energy by a novel microfluidic device through the interaction of thousands of liquid microdroplets with a groundbreaking nanostructured substrate.
