The Penn Regional Nanotechnology Facility (PRN) is a full-service center equipped with a wide range of state-of-the-art instrumentation for materials analysis. Nanoscale characterization of polymers, ceramics, composites, metals, electronics, and thin films is conducted using scanning, transmission, and scanning-transmission electron microscopes, atomic force microscopes, and ion scattering techniques.
Beneq is a leading supplier of production and research equipment for thin film ALD and aerosol coatings, as well as the world’s premier manufacturer of thin film electroluminescent (TFEL) displays.
Beneq equipment is used for applying coatings in solar photovoltaics, flexible electronics, strengthened glass and other emerging thin film applications. Beneq has introduced several revolutionary innovations in its coating technologies, including roll-to-roll atomic layer deposition (ALD) and high-yield atmospheric aerosol coating (nAERO®).
Diamond, nature’s extreme material, is renowned for its incomparable properties such as exceptional hardness, high stiffness, low friction, biocompatibility and outstanding thermal conductivity — just to name a few. For decades designers and engineers have sought to harness the attributes of diamond for a variety of engineering uses, but until now diamond has been notoriously difficult to work with, prohibitively expensive and without a reliable supply.
Founded in Sweden in 2005, QuNano works to commercialize cutting-edge, proprietary semiconductor and non-semiconductor nanowire technology in diverse fields such as solid state electronics, solid state illumination, highly efficient photovoltaics, and the life sciences.
Solexant is a well funded start-up developing third generation thin film PV technologies which dramatically increase solar cell efficiency and reduce manufacturing costs, therefore enabling the commercialization of solar modules that generate electricity at competitive rates without depending on government subsidies. Using printable nano-material technologies exclusively licensed from leading universities, Solexant's flexible solar cells harvest energy from the entire solar spectrum.
The genesis of HzO WaterBlock™ technology began with the vision to create emergency response communications equipment that could function in maritime environments. The original development team was driven to create electronic equipment that could operate even when wet. Their hope was that equipment, costs and human lives would all be saved if electronic devices never failed from water damage.
Magnolia Solar, Inc. strives to develop and produce low cost, high efficiency, thin film solar cell modules. Our goal is to make strong impact towards green technology.
Magnolia´s thin film solar cells offer - substantially lower cost than crystalline solar cells, use less expensive materials, significant gains in efficiency vs. other thin film cells and modules by application of proprietary nano/micro technologies; and, has the potential for lowest cost/watt solar technology.
