NanoPhotonica brings innovative nanomaterials and production techniques to enable market-altering improvements to displays, solar panels, as well as other electronic device industries. The increased conductivity of their materials enhances electrical-optical conversion, and its ability to act as a moisture, oxygen and UV barrier prevents premature degradation and increases device lifespan.
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.
