NanoDynamics announced today that it has signed a joint venture agreement with New Zealand-based technology company, Nano Cluster Devices Ltd (NCD).
NanoDynamics, a leading
nanotechnology organization and manufacturer of superior
nanomaterials, announced today that it has signed a joint venture
agreement with New Zealand-based technology company, Nano Cluster
Devices Ltd (NCD). NanoDynamics will be working to commercialize NCD's
technology process for self-assembly of nanowires in production of
semiconductors and electronic components. Under the agreement,
NanoDynamics will be responsible for sales and application
development, as the Company targets semiconductor companies, consumer
applications, aerospace, biotech and industrial manufacturers. NCD
will be responsible for the further advancement of the technology
"Over the past two years, NanoDynamics has successfully identified a number of exciting nanotechnologies, each possessing significant commercial potential," said, Keith Blakely, CEO of NanoDynamics. "As part of our corporate strategy, NanoDynamics is building an intellectual property portfolio able to provide significant product and technology value to a wide range of customers and partners.
Through our own discovery and invention process, along with technology acquisitions and partnerships, we are expanding our technology and product offerings to the electronics, semiconductor, energy, biomedical, transportation, and other markets. Our management team has a long and successful track record launching commercial products from new technologies, particularly in the area of advanced materials, and we anticipate the Company will achieve significant market penetration in 2005."
NCD, in conjunction with the University of Canterbury, has developed a novel technology platform to produce electrically conducting nanowires through the deposition of atomic clusters onto lithographically prepared templates. The NCD technology produces small, well-controlled linear structures with different functionalities on a range of substrates. The key feature of NCD's technology is that it is essentially a self-assembly process, which means that slow manipulation of nano-sized building blocks, which is often unavoidable in many other nanotechnologies, is completely avoided. The nanowires produced are smaller in size, and more economical to apply due to their controlled placement and use of existing semiconductor processes. The methodology can be utilized across a wide range of applications including:
Dr. Simon Brown, the key inventor of NCD's technology, and an
Executive Director of the company says, "The partnership with
NanoDynamics is a major step forward in our strategic plan to
introduce our enabling technology to a broad range of industrial
partners. As a leading supplier of nanomaterials, NanoDynamics already
offers advanced material solutions to the semiconductor,
microelectronic, and technology markets. Our nanowire deposition
technology is an important new tool for creating high value products
in these segments. There is an excellent fit between the companies and
we expect a long and constructive partnership."
To further advance this technology platform, NanoDynamics has named Peter Hauser Director of Business Development for this product line. Peter has extensive experience in photolithography and other semiconductor related technologies that are key to the success of this project. Peter will work closely with Dr. Alan Rae, Vice President of Market and Business Development who also has extensive electronics experience.
About NanoCluster Devices Ltd.
Nano Cluster Devices Ltd, formed in early 2003, has developed novel methods for taking clusters of atoms and forming them into electrically conducting wire and has established a comprehensive Patent Portfolio based on these methods.
