SRI’s Dubois Says Interest in Cleantech “Off-the-Charts”
By: Vance McCarthy

Larry Dubois, vice president of SRI International’s Physical Sciences Division, says interest — and opportunities — in cleantech are “off the charts.”

At SRI, a leading research and development institute based in Menlo Park, California, Dubois has a unique vantage point of that tricky road that runs from experimental R&D to commercialization.

Rice Chemists Discover Key To Self-Assembly for Novel Devices

Chemists at Rice University may have unlocked one of the secrets for using nanoscale ‘building blocks’ to assemble much larger superstructures.

Rice researchers have found that tiny building blocks (gold nanorods) will spontaneously assemble themselves into ring-like superstructures. The finding, Rice researchers said, could lead to the development of novel nanodevices such as highly-sensitive optical sensors, superlenses, or even “invisible objects” for use in the military.

Nanosys, Bruker R&D Pact Eyes New Nanoscale Imaging, Mass Spectroscopy

New tools for small molecule imaging and nanoscale mass spectrometry could result from an R&D partnership announced this week between Nanosys Inc. and Bruker Daltonics Inc.

The firms have entered a broad agreement, which includes R&D collaboration on future products, as well as distribution for Nanosys’ current nanotechnology-enabled matrix-free target plates (technology it calls Capture and Analyze NALDI chips) in Bruker’s FLEX line of specialized mass spectrometers.
