CHASM Advanced Materials Inc. (CHASM) produces Signis few-wall and single-wall and carbon nanotubes using the patented CoMoCAT® catalytic method in fluidized bed reactors. The CoMoCAT method is proven for the scalable selective synthesis of carbon nanotubes with remarkable control of diameter, chirality and purity. These CNT products are ideally suited for commercial application in battery materials, thin-film transistors, transparent conductive films, NRAM and more.
Founded in 1984, Heidelberg Instruments is today a global leader in design, development and manufacturing of complex laser based maskless lithography systems. These systems are critical to fabrication of advanced photomasks and direct write solutions in the areas of Advanced Electronic Packaging, Flat Panel Display, MEMS, Integrated Optics and other micro and nano based applications.
Rolith, Inc. is developing advanced nanostructured coatings and devices based on proprietary technology for high throughput large surface area nanolithography. Found in nature (Moth eye, Lotus leaf and others) and successfully demonstrated in the Research Labs, these advanced coatings have an ability to revolultionize Solar, Lighting, Energy and Data storage, Information Displays, Life Science, Architecture and other industries. Rolith's new nanostructuring concept will allow cost-effective scaling of fabrication processes in conveyor or Roll-to-Roll modes.
MicroContinuum Inc. was founded in 1998 by a group of former Polaroid scientists and engineers with the goal of developing and commercializing new and innovative roll manufacturing technologies.
MicroContinuum facilities, located in Watertown MA, house an wide range of laboratory and manufacturing equipment, including two roll-to-roll (R2R) micro/nanoembossers, R2R vacuum coater, batch sputter coater, slitter, analytical instrumentation, among others.
Applied Plasmonics, a fabless semiconductor company, has invented a practical, mass-market use for devices based on surface plasmons. The new technology employs nano-antennas manufactured in a single layer to generate visible light.
NanoInk, Inc. is an emerging growth technology company specializing in nanometer-scale manufacturing and applications development for the life sciences, engineering, pharmaceutical, and education industries. Using Dip Pen Nanolithography® (DPN®), a patented and proprietary nanofabrication technology, scientists are enabled to rapidly and easily create micro-and nanoscale structures from a variety of materials on a range of substrates. This low cost, easy to use and scalable technique brings sophisticated nanofabrication to the laboratory desktop.
