SouthWest NanoTechnologies CEO Speaking at New England Nanomanufacturing Summit
(Nanowerk News) CEO of SouthWest NanoTechnologies (SWeNT) Dave Arthur will be speaking at the New England Nanomanufacturing Summit 2010 about "The Commercialization of Carbon Nanotube Materials for Coatings and Composites".
Arthur is also co-founder of Canton based CHASM Technologies, which commercializes and develops manufacturing processes for micro and nano-patterned thin films, using scalable coating technologies. SouthWest NanoTechnologies' application development center is located within CHASM. SWeNT is the leader in high quality, single-wall, and specialty multi-wall carbon nanotubes (CNTs). SWeNT produces carbon nanotubes using the patented CoMoCATŪ catalytic method in fluidized bed reactors. This results in selective synthesis of CNTs and remarkable control of diameter, chirality and purity.
Arthur is scheduled to speak at 10:30 am on Wednesday, June 23. The Summit runs from June 22-24 at the Inn & Conference Center at U. Mass Lowell. William Hurley of CHASM Technologies will be also be speaking on Tuesday at 3:30 pm on "R2R Coating and Printing of CNT Inks." Hurley's paper will discuss the development of new CNT commercial inks with SouthWest NanoTechnologies.
The New England Nanomanufacturing Summit 2010 is a showcase for high-quality technical contributions by scientists, experts, and businesses in the nanomanufacturing field. This event will showcase topics such as emerging technologies, applications, and fundamental research for academic institutions and industries in the Northeast.
SouthWest NanoTechnologies (SWeNT) is a privately-held specialty chemical company that manufactures high quality single-wall and specialty multi-wall carbon nanotubes, printable inks and CNT-coated fabrics for a range of products and applications including energy-efficient lighting, affordable photovoltaics, improved energy storage and printed electronics. SWeNT was created in 2001 to spin off nanotube research developed at the University of Oklahoma.
