NSTI Innovation Profiles
Electronics & Microsystems
  • R&D Profile: An Overview of Sensing and Waveguiding with Plasmonic Building Blocks - S. Link, Rice University, US
    A surface plasmon is excited when the conduction band electrons of a metal oscillate coherently in phase with incoming excitation light. Metal nanoparticles with tunable plasmon resonances provide fascinating possibilities to tailor the optical response of nanostructured materials. [more]
  • IP Profile: Gate Insulator Material for Low Voltage Printed Electronics - University of Minnesota, US
    We present a transparent, polymer-based gate insulator material for field effect transistors (FETs) that can be easily applied via conventional printing techniques to plastic substrates for low cost, low voltage flexible electronics applications. [more]

Chemicals, Materials & Energy:
  • R&D Profile: Functional Nanomaterials – Synthesis and Applications - Bayer Technology Services, Germany, and Bayer Technology Services, USA
    Bayer Technology Services GmbH (BTS) is actively pursuing the development of nanomaterials such as Baytubes®, Baydots®, Bayink®, metallic and metal oxide nanoparticles (or nanorods, nanoshells, etc.) with a characteristic diameter in the range of 1-100 nm. These nanomaterials have unique chemical and physical properties, with applications in photovoltaic, eletronics, catalysis, biomedicine and new composite materials.[more]
  • IP Profile: Bacteria extract elicitors, extraction process, composition including extract and method to induce the plant defense responses - Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul –PUCRS, Brazil
    The invention reduces the infection by microorganisms in potato with only one application, reducing the management costs related to this crop. [more]
  • Venture Profile: Opalux
    Opalux Inc. is a start-up founded to commercialize an IP portfolio of photonic crystal display technology developed at the University of Toronto. [more]
    Nanotech 2010 Conference and Expo - June 21-25 - Submissions open Fall 2009
    Submission Open Fall 2009! Exhibit & Sponsor Opportunities Now Available! [more]
Features News
