Abstract:
Nanotechnology knows no state boundaries, which is why we founded the Greater Garden State Nanotechnology Alliance (GGSNA). The organization is affiliated with the New Jersey Technology Council (NJTC), and although grounded in the Garden State, attracts participants from New York, Connecticut, southeastern Pennsylvania, and Delaware.
 
The GGSNA promotes regional economic development by facilitating commercialization of nanotechnology in and around New Jersey. We coordinate capabilities and collaborative efforts among small business, industry, educational institutions and government in the following market sectors: health care & medicine; personal care & cosmetics; food, flavors & fragrances; energy & power; electronics & telecommunications; defense & homeland security; transportation and recreation.
 
One of the strategic initiatives the GGSNA has supported is the NJ NanoValley model to develop multi-use rapid protoyping capabilities in the region as a precursor to larger scale nano-manufacturing. Such capabilities are intended to bridge the gap between research done in academic institutions and development and engineering work done in small and large companies as part of product commercialization efforts. We will describe an example of a multi-use rapid protoyping facility - the induction plasma reactor at Picatinny Arsenal used to synthesize nanoparticles of interest to academia, industry and the military at scales intermediate to experimental studies and pre-commercial launches.
