The company specializes in the unique science of graphene and its derivative materials. NanoXplore's initial focus is on applications where graphene provides significant added value and bulk quantities of high quality graphene provide a competitive advantage. Near term opportunities are in industries such as paints and lubricants, textiles, and energy.
Macro-M, Grupo KUO's nanobusiness currently has three product lines: a) additives for polymers, b) plastic compounds based on nanomaterials and c) nanomaterials with special properties, such as controlled release.
Topsoe specialises in the production of heterogeneous catalysts and the design of process plants based on catalytic processes. Focus areas include the fertiliser industry, the chemical and petrochemical industries, and the energy sector (refineries and power plants). Topsoe has for many years dedicated large research efforts to nanoscience and nanotechnology. The efforts range from the development of novel preparation methods to theoretical and experimental investigations.
Using an innovative, modified sol-gel-process, the company manufactures spherical nanoparticles enabling the production of nanocomposite materials for coatings with unprecedented combinations of properties - and on an industrial scale.
The company has historically specialized in the design and manufacture of instruments for optical spectroscopy. Although originally conceived for surface cleaning in optical spectroscopy and general optics, Harrick Scientific's plasma devices have found service in a wide variety of applications and in numerous technical fields.
The company's expertise and available facilities are sputtering services; reactive magnetron sputtering, reactive PVD, metal oxides, nitrides, fluorides, multi-layers, dichroic filters, high-temperature diffusion barriers, moisture barriers, protected silver and aluminum; various reactive sputtering tool layouts are available for process development.
