Electronics & Microsystems

R&D Profile: Achieving both nanopatterning and desired upright orientation with alkanedithiol self-assembled monolayers on gold, J.J. Yu Agilent Technologies, Inc., US
The capability of design and fabrication of nanometer-sized functional materials are highly desired in nanotechnology due to their potential use as building blocks in nanodevices [more]

IP Profile: A novel Energy Source for Portable Electronic Devices - Micro Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (micro SOFC)
Portable electronic devices continuously need more power. The miniaturized Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (micro SOFC) is a hybrid power source, directly fueled by butane, with an increased energy capacity and density compared to current Li-ion batteries. [more]


Health Sciences and Biotech/Pharma

Venture Profile: Cambridge Biomagnetics
Cambridge Biomagnetics (CBM) aims to provide a range of solutions to enable next generation biochemical assays with high speed and reliability in a true multiplexed manner. CBM is utilising its platform technology for magnetically tagging vast numbers of chemical and biological compounds for a plethora of applications covering the life sciences and diagnostic industries. [more]

IP Profile: : Targeted, Rapid Release Drug Delivery Through Gold Nanoshell
Imaging Adsorption Sensor (IAS) offers a novel technology based on white light interference for film thickness measurements with sub-molecular resolution and an extremely high dynamic range. The strength of the label-free technology lies in the low-cost optical setup and the capability of real-time imaging readout. [more]


Chemicals, Materials & Energy

IP Profile: Melanin-based nanoshells for protection against electromagnetic radiation and for energy conversion
We established that melanin-based nanoshells can be used in the protection of human beings and machinery from electromagnetic radiation, in particular, from ionizing radiation, and in energy conversion such as minimizing the losses during energy transfer [more]
