Nanotech 2000 Exhibitors
ANSYS Inc. develops and globally markets engineering simulation software used by designers and engineers across a broad spectrum of industries, including aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, nuclear, electronics and biomedical. The Company develops open and flexible simulation solutions that enable users to simulate design performance directly on the desktop, providing a common platform for fast, efficient and cost-effective product development, from design concept to final-stage testing and performance validation.
ANSYS Multiphysics has an extremely broad physics capability directly applicable to many areas of microsystem design. Coupling between these physics enables accurate, real world simulation of devices such as electrostatic driven comb drives. For example, the ability to compute fluid structural damping effects is critical in determining the switching response time of devices such as RF switches ormicromirrors. Also, Electro-thermal-structural effects are employed in thermal actuators. CFD capabilities are used to compute flow and free surface droplet formation useful in the design of ink-jet printer nozzles, and lab-on-chip and biomedicalapplications.

DOD Dual Use Science & Technology Program
What is a Dual Use Technology
- A technology that has both military utility and sufficient commercial potential to support a viable industrial base.
Benefits to Industry
- To partner with industry to jointly fund the development of dual use technologies needed to maintain our technological superiority on the battlefield and for industry to remain competitive in the marketplace. This is accomplished through:
- The use of streamlined contracting procedures, and
- Cost sharing between the Program, the Services, and industry.
- However, just as important is making the dual use development of technologies with industry a normal way of doing business in the Services.
- Leverage of scarce S&T funding.
- Provides vehicle to form beneficial partnerships with other firms, Defense labs, or universities.
- Access to advanced technology through these partnerships.
- Increased potential for transition of technologies into defense systems which can lead to increased markets.
IntelliSense Software Corporation
For more than a decade, IntelliSense Software Corporation, a privately held company, has provided MEMS design and development services as well as Software Tools for the MEMS Professional. IntelliSense Software has developed advanced MEMS devices for many sectors including the optical, RF, laboratory equipment, and life sciences industries. IntelliSense leverages its expertise by selling a market-leading, device- and package-level MEMS software package, IntelliSuite®. IntelliSense provides Total MEMS Solutions™ to customers in twenty countries on three continents.
IntelliSuite, since becoming the first commercial MEMS CAD tool on the market in 1995, has been the tool of choice for MEMS engineers in the design, simulation, and optimization of their devices. Because MEMS performance is highly dependent on the fabrication process, IntelliSuite uses machine settings and mask sets to generate 3D models for analysis. This assures both accurate geometry and accurate thin-film material properties are applied to IntelliSuite's MEMS-specific analysis engines (coupled thermo-electro-mechanical, microfluidic, and electromagnetic). By incorporating process templates, thin-film material engineering, mask layout, and device analysis within a single tool, IntelliSuite enables MEMS engineers to optimize devices prior to fabrication, reducing development time and costs.
IntelliSense Software's headquarters are located in Woburn, Massachusetts.
Kluwer Academic Publishers
Welcome to Kluwer's collection of nanoscience books and journals-high-quality publications covering the field for materials scientists, engineers and chemists. Our newest titles include: Trends in Nanoscale Mechanics; Nanotechnology in Catalysis, Volume 1 and Volume 2; Nanoparticles: Building Blocks for Nanotechnology; and Nanostructures: Synthesis, Functional Properties and Applications.
Explore the concepts, chemical properties, processes, synthesis, characterization and applications of nanomaterials through Kluwer's extensive list of reference works, monographs, articles and National Science Foundation reports.

Molecular Simulations, Inc.
MSI was the leading provider of simulation and modeling tools for drug discovery and chemical development.
Founded in 1984, MSI grew through the combination of a number of leading names in the molecular modeling industry to be the leading company in the area. MSI incorporated companies including BioDesign, Biosym, Polygen, Cambridge Molecular Design, and BioCAD. Many of these companies emerged from, or developed close links with, leading Universities -- Harvard, Cambridge, York and the California Institute of Technology are examples.
The company's product-line included the best-known names in modeling for drug discovery: Insight, QUANTA/CHARMm, and Cerius2 as well as the unique tools for materials science modeling in the Cerius2 software environment, now available within Materials Studio.
MSI was acquired by Pharmacopeia Inc. in 1998 and subsequently acquired Synopsys Scientififc Systems, Oxford Molecular, and GCG. The goal was the creation of a single provider of simulation and informatics tools capable of building an integrated technology platform for research and development. That company is Accelrys.
