The company produces fiber-based laser sources for applications ranging from material processing for solar cell manufacturing, semiconductor fabrication and assembly, and flat panel display manufacturing, to scientific uses such as STED microscopy.
The company develops Modumetal™, a nanolaminated alloy that is stronger and lighter than steel and will replace conventional metals and composites in many applications, starting with military armor, and eventually in cars, planes, buildings, and other transportation and construction sectors.
Develops ultra-precision machine systems, typically utilizing Single Point Diamond Turning and Deterministic Micro-Grinding technologies, for the production of plano, spherical, aspheric, conformal, and freeform optics.
Develops and commercializes products that use reference distribution aerial image formation (RIF) as a core technology. Products that range from nanoscale microscopes to advanced semiconductor nanolithography exposure equipment are anticipated.
The company's main line of business is to design, build and deliver state of the art, ultra high vacuum multi-chamber PECVD/sputtering/Hot Wire CVD systems, arranged in a cluster tool configuration and specifically designed for the thin film semiconductor market.
Nascentric develops and markets design automation tools that enable leading edge semiconductor companies to analyze and optimize their designs. Their products accurately predict performance in the presence of nanometer effects such as delay, power, signal integrity, electro-migration, and power supply variation.
Nalco has a long history of work in nanotechnology dating to the 1950s and the development of colloidal silicas. Recent innovations such as Core Shell® polymers, modified at the molecular level for use in wastewater treatment and as process aids in papermaking, petroleum refining, mining and food and beverage processing. Joint venture partner in NanoSpecialties, an R&D company for nanotechnology water and process treatments.
Nano Discovery Inc. is a manufacturer of dynamic light scattering (DLS) instruments. The company develops innovative applications using DLS. DLS has been traditionally used mainly for nanoparticle size characterization. By introducing gold nanoparticle probes, the firm developed a unique technology, NanoDLSay (Nanoparticle-Enabled Dynamic Light Scattering Assay)?, for chemical and biological detection and analysis.
