Invents, manufactures and sells miniature ceramic motors and positioning systems using patented piezoelectric designs. They enable researchers to create more precise laboratory automation and nanotechnology tools.
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).
Nicast Ltd. develops superior medical devices from electrospun nanofabric for a wide range of clinical applications. Electrospun nanofabric is a biomaterial made of ultra-thin polymer fibers, with properties that mimic those of human tissues and organs.
Nicoya is a nanotechnology company developing novel sensor products. The company's flagship product is OpenSPR - a compact, sensitive, and affordable surface plasmon resonance instrument for molecular analysis.
Nikon has developed a technology to form a coating with very low refractive index even in the vacuum UV region, and greatly improved the angular performance of antireflection coating. This ultra-low refractive index coating is called Nanoparticle Coating because the size of the particles that compose this coating ranges from a few nanometers to just more than 10 nanometers.
Nikon Metrology offers a complete range of metrology solutions including Coordinate Measuring Machines(CMMs), Optical CMMs, 3D laser scanners, X-ray and Computed Tomography (CT), Optical CNC measuring systems , Laser Radar, iGPS /iSpace systems, and metrology software for 3D scanning, 3D digitizing, 3D inspection and reverse engineering.
The company sells stamps for nanoimprint lithography (NIL), provides imprint service, production by NIL, consultancy and enters into joint development of novel applications benefiting from nano-scale structures.
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.
Nissan Chemical America Corporation produces colloidal silicas and metal oxide solutions for scratch-resistant coatings for eyeglass lenses, automobile clear coats, and many other plastic parts needing protective coatings. The company also produce high-purity colloidal silicas used in the production of polishing slurries for the semiconductor industry. Their colloidal silicas are also used in the manufacture of synthetic fibers and textiles.
The foundation of Nissan Chemical Industries inorganic materials operations is its nanoparticle control technology. Beyond its core businesses and technological areas of organic materials, inorganic materials and electronics materials, the company also manufactures electroconductive nano-sized special polymers.
nLIGHT designs and manufactures industry leading high-power semiconductor lasers, and tailored integrated solutions. Following the acquisition of LIEKKI, the company is using LIEKKI's Direct Nanoparticle Deposition (DND) fiber technology process in developing new solutions.
