|(Nanowerk News) Currently, there are companies in Florida involved in nanotechnology-related business activities.|
|In addition, there are nanotechnology and nanoscience-related research and community organizations in Florida.|
Nanotechnology companies in FloridaNanomaterial Suppliers
Manufacturer and supplier of specialized nano materials and ceramics. Composites, Catalysts, Bio-medical, Microelectronic and Aerospace applications.
BuckyRing provides single-layer graphene in dispersions in quantities suitable for research and development through production.
Garmor has developed a simple yet effective method of producing edge-functionalized graphene oxide. This proprietary achievement eliminates costly hazardous waste disposal and delivers a product suitable for large scale production at commodity-type prices.
|Nanobiotechnology and Nanomedicine Companies|
The company's NLP technology produces a generation of particles which retains the strength of the Dermazone Solutions' (SDMC) technologies, but includes the ability to produce particles of 60 nanometers to 150 nanometers which are optically clear. The use of this generation of lipid-based particle delivery system provides the ability to control the size of the final particle by controlling the number of NLPs used to assemble the finished particle. This system maintains very high loading capacity of passenger molecules and uses only safe, all natural ingredients to form both the NLPs and the final delivery system.
The foundation of the company's IVEC™ drug delivery platform is based on polymer micelle technology, spherical nanosized capsules formed by the assembly of block copolymers in water.
|Nanotechnology Products, Applications & Instruments Companies|
Bing Energy, Inc. has an exclusive commercialization agreement to use Florida State University professor Dr. Jim P. Zheng's patented breakthrough nanotechnology to create a more commercially viable fuel cell. Building on the groundbreaking of Dr. Ben Wang, inventor of buckypaper, Zheng has pioneered a fuel cell that incorporates a thin membrane composed of carbon nanotubes, reducing the need for expensive platinum that, until now, have made fuel cells too expensive to be widely marketed.
Research, development and commercialization of next-generation cooling solutions that are built on an exclusive patent portfolio in the field of thermofluid nanotechnology.
This large supplier of textiles, soft-trim products and fabrication solutions to the transportation and contract furniture industries applies protective nanocoatings to some of its products.
The company's product Energy Recovery Ventilation uses a solid state air-to-air heat exchanger constructed with nanopolymers.
A nanotechnology polymer materials company.
Ecosphere Technologies develops advanced water recycling technologies and expertise to increase energy production, reduce well completion costs and protect the environment. Its Ecosphere Ozonix Reactor Technology is a patented, advanced oxidation process that combines ozone generation, hydrodynamic cavitation, acoustic cavitation and electro-chemical decomposition in a reaction vessel to cost effectively treat wastewaters using nanoscale cavitation bubbles.
The company is devoted to the design, development, and manufacture of machinery and technology for the synthetic fiber industry. Fiber technology capabilities include nanofibers and polyester nanotubing.
Hypercube, Inc. is a scientific software company, incorporated in 1985, specializing in molecular modeling software.
Develops and manufactures maskless exposure systems dor micro and nanopatterning applications.
The company performs applied carbon nanotube research and development for a wide range of applications including thermal enhancements, batteries, ultracpacitors, and sensors.
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.
NanoPhotonica brings innovative nanomaterials and production techniques to enable market-altering improvements to displays, solar panels, as well as other electronic device industries. The increased conductivity of their materials enhances electrical-optical conversion, and its ability to act as a moisture, oxygen and UV barrier prevents premature degradation and increases device lifespan.
NanoSpective specializes in advanced materials characterization. The company uses cutting edge technology and state of the art equipment to perform nanoscale and macroscopic property evaluation of materials.
Ocean Optics is a diversified photonics technology firm and a global leader in optical sensing.
Planar Energy Devices is a venture backed technology company that designs and manufactures high energy density "solid state" thin-film and large format batteries for commercial and OEM applications.
Plasma-Therm is a supplier of advanced plasma process equipment that caters to various specialty markets including photomask, solid state lighting, thin film head and compound semiconductor. Plasma-Therm offers both dry etch and PECVD technologies.
Quantachrome is a world leader in the design and manufacture of laboratory instruments for characterizing properties of porous materials and powders.
The company manufactures Demron&trade, a material constructed from a unique nanotechnology that far surpasses the effectiveness of current nuclear-biological-chemical suits that only protect against radioactive particulate sources.
Sinmat is an emerging materials nanotechnology company developing value driven technological solutions for the semiconductor industry. For instance, its use of their nano/nanosponge particle technology allows successful development of a flexible, defect-free process to fabricate copper-based interconnects.
A manufacturer and distributor of surface analysis and thin film deposition components and systems.
Since its founding in 1989, Trion Technology, Inc. has become the largest domestic US supplier of custom Plasma Etch and Deposition Equipment. Trion manufactures a wide variety of systems for the Compound Semiconductor, MEMS, Opto-Electronic and other markets.
