The company's materials expertise is in the conversion of nanoscale materials into enhanced fluids, phase change materials, and polymeric composites into respectively nanofluids, nano-PCMs and nanocomposites.
CombiMatrix's microarray technology allows for the parallel synthesis of large numbers of nanostructured materials. These materials can then be tested using the same chip-based technology. These activities are focused on materials that could be useful for applications in the fields of electronics, energy conversion, energy storage, catalysis, and others.
The company's experience in sub-micron and nano tool machine design, early stage tool development, prototyping and nanotechnology equipment design along with the requisite high level of Engineering Analysis provides the complete skill set for partnering with many clients who are focused on core technologies and intellectual property for nanotechnology tools.
Contour Energy Systems is a leading innovator of advanced battery technologies leveraging materials science breakthroughs and patented manufacturing processes for the development of next-generation primary and rechargeable battery systems.
Correlated Magnetics is a revolutionary scientific breakthrough that enables magnets to be 'programmed' such that they can produce never-before-seen behaviors far beyond the simple 'attract' and 'repel' of conventional single-axis dipole magnets. This new technology, which can be scaled down to the nanoscale, can be used both to improve existing products currently employing magnets and to empower innovative new products in applications where conventional magnets were never considered practical.
