The company's materials expertise is in the conversion of nanoscale materials into enhanced fluids, phase change materials, and polymeric composites into respectively nanofluids, nano-PCMs and nanocomposites.
CombiMatrix's microarray technology allows for the parallel synthesis of large numbers of nanostructured materials. These materials can then be tested using the same chip-based technology. These activities are focused on materials that could be useful for applications in the fields of electronics, energy conversion, energy storage, catalysis, and others.
The company's experience in sub-micron and nano tool machine design, early stage tool development, prototyping and nanotechnology equipment design along with the requisite high level of Engineering Analysis provides the complete skill set for partnering with many clients who are focused on core technologies and intellectual property for nanotechnology tools.
Contour Energy Systems is a leading innovator of advanced battery technologies leveraging materials science breakthroughs and patented manufacturing processes for the development of next-generation primary and rechargeable battery systems.
Developed a technology to compact DNA into complexes containing only a single molecule of DNA, resulting in a volume 30-1000 times smaller than other complexes. This simple difference makes Copernicus' "DNA nanoparticles" highly stable and uniquely able to deliver DNA to the nuclei of non-dividing human cells - which includes most cells in the body.
