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.
QualSec Inc. is the developer of the NanoNose, the next generation of electronic olfactory sensory technology. The company develops cutting-edge proprietary detection systems which meet the discrimination, sensitivity, and portability requirements of the homeland security market, as well as applications in other high volume markets including the health care, environmental, petrochemical, and food industries.
Qualtré Inc. is commercializing the next generation of motion sensors, further broadening their applicability in CE devices like cellular handsets, personal navigation devices, and gaming controllers. Using a proprietary high-performance, low-cost technology platform, Qualtré aims to be the leading supplier of inertial sensors for these devices.
The revolutionary technology of QuantomiX solves the problem of preparing wet samples for high-resolution imaging. It closes the resolution gap between conventional electron microscopy and light microscopy and offers the convenient sample preparation of light microscopy.
QFT has developed a new form of field emission backplane which gives highly uniform electron emission with low threshold voltage and no need for conditioning. The backplane is manufactured from amorphous silicon and its unique field emission characteristics are created by a simple proprietary engineering process which is free of any lithographic steps.
Quantum14 Corp. is dedicated to develop and commercialize 'Porous Silicon' technology which is based on the anodization technique for creating porous silicon with prescribed pore sizes ranging from nanometer to macroscopic scales.
QuantumBio, Inc is accelerating the drug discovery efforts by providing pharmaceutical, biotechnology companies and life science research organizations a next generation of Computer-Assisted Molecular Modeling (CAMM) and Computer-Assisted Drug Design (CADD) solutions.
QuantumWise produces software for atomic-scale modeling of nanoelectronic devices, wrapped in a platform with a graphical user interface and a scripting language interface. The company is unique in offering a commercial code that can do transport calculations using first-principles methods, and at the same time the back-end provides state-of-the-art simulation capacity for large-scale systems, allowing for systems with over 1,000 atoms to be simulated on a single workstation.
The initial product offering from Quickshot XRF focuses on two main applications; precious metal analysis and hazardous substance detection. Additional instruments and software packages are in development to provide low-cost options to organizations that require accurate coating thickness measurements and alloy verification.
Quickstep, or more specifically, the Quickstep Process, is a range of unique and patented technologies that can be used in the out-of-autoclave manufacture of advanced composite materials, including nanocomposite production.
