Porifera Inc. was founded with the goal of developing membranes with vastly superior permeability, durability, and selectivity for water purification and other applications such as carbon sequestration. The company's vision is to use carbon nanotubes to improve membrane performance, enabling affordable and plentiful fresh drinking water worldwide.
Powdermet specializes in modifying powder and particulate surfaces through applying metal and ceramic coatings onto particulate matrices. The company designs, develops, and manufactures metal and ceramic nanoengineered fine powders and particulates using fluidized bed surface modification technology.
Power Chips plc has devised 'Power Chips' which generate electricity by using heat to move electrons from one side of a vacuum diode to the other. Power Chips use thermionics to convert heat directly into electricity.
PPG is actively involved in nanotechnology, from Research & Development to the commercialization of several products that either contain nanoparticles within a polymeric matrix structure or are formed as nanostructured films on a substrate by physical or chemical vapor deposition processes.
The company provides a line of optics and opto-electronic assemblies includes etalons, laser mirrors, beamsplitter cubes, micro-optics, bonded high-power laser optics, and IBS coatings with optics-manufacturing limits to the nanometer level.
Manufactures ultra precision diamond machining systems for single point diamond turning, precision grinding and diamond milling of spherical, aspheric and non-axis symmetric (freeform) optics, optical molds and precision mechanical components.
Presto Engineering, Inc. is a provider of product engineering services to the semiconductor industry. The company's in-silicon analysis capabilities are part of the company?s Design Success Analysis™ offering for process technologies down to the 45nm node.
PureLux is a spin-out from the Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials at Wake Forest University focused on commercializing next generation light sources that are 10 times more efficient than incandescents and 3 times more efficient than fluorescents.
This electronic design automation (EDA) company is developing new integrated circuit (IC) and system on chip (SoC) routing software for complex nanometer IC designs. Their solution is an architecture optimized for the challenges of sub-100 nm manufacturing process technology.
Spun out of Cambridge University in mid 2004 to commercialize research findings in the areas of advanced nano-enabled materials, specifically in the area of carbon nanotube materials and their applications.
Q-Sense develops and markets research instruments based on the patented Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation Monitoring (QCM-D) technology. Since 1999, when the first commercial system for measurements in liquid was launched, Q-Sense has become the leading supplier of acoustic resonator based instruments for molecular binding events taking place on various surfaces.
