NanoCentral is an alliance of organizations capable of providing access to a broad range of leading edge technologies, equipment and services.It provides existing and potential manufacturers or users of nanomaterials single point access to an integrated and comprehensive set of nano-related capabilities that encompass: synthesis; dispersion, functionalization & formulation; application development; characterization; safety, health and environmental capabilities.
A service lab offering FIB (focused ion beam) and other microscopy services to NanoResearchers who do not have their own equipment - for the purposes of direct nano-fabrication of devices for test and analysis.
NanoSight manufacture unique instruments for visualisation and sizing of nanoparticles in liquid suspensions. Using Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA), particle size distributions are measured by sizing particles on an individual basis by observing Brownian motion.
nanoTherics Ltd was formed in August 2007 to exploit a novel gene transfection technology arising from biomedical research at Keele University and the University of Florida. The patented technology uses nanoparticles and magnetic fields to facilitate the delivery of foreign DNA into living cells.
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).
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.
Provides instrumentation and consulting for measurement of surface roughness, waviness and shape; layer thickness and optical properties ranging from the sub-nanometer to the cm scales along with surface modification and laser lithography.
