A development-stage technology company creating photolytic, photovoltaic, and photocatalytic products arising from its technology platform, in which nano-structured plastic templates cause high local stresses in applied thin film semiconductors, thereby shifting their bandgap for more efficient solar absorption.
nanoRETE, Inc. provides real-time detection of pathogens using customized nanoparticle biosensors. The company has developed a platform that has the ability to test for numerous pathogens (anthrax, E. Coli, salmonella, tuberculosis, etc.) using a simple-to-use handheld device which generates screening results in about one hour.
Founded on commercial agreements with Rice University and the University of Houston, NanoRidge has exclusive licenses for the use of technologies focused on applications of carbon nanotubes and other nanoparticles for production and sales of advanced nanomaterials.
Nanosolar's component nanoengineering capabilities are focused on certain optoelectronically relevant materials and include semiconductor quantum dots and nanoparticles as well as nanotemplates with precise three-dimensional order.
Develops molecular self-assembly processes that allow the controlled synthesis of material structure at the nanometer level and the manufacturing of new materials with designed novel and useful engineering constitutive behaviors.
NanoSpective specializes in advanced materials characterization. The company uses cutting edge technology and state of the art equipment to perform nanoscale and macroscopic property evaluation of materials.
The company was founded to commercialize a new generation of cavitation reentrant jet-based tools and processes. NanoSpire provides the first machine tool capable of cutting, drilling, welding, hammering, and annealing materials only a few nanometers in size by harnessing cavitation microjets.
