Breakthrough Sensor Platform to be Unveiled at nanoTX’06
Austin, TX | Posted on June 06, 2006
Applied Nanotech, Inc. announced they will introduce a breakthrough sensor platform that will revolutionize the semiconductor gas and chemical sensor market at nanoTX’06 during International Nanotechnology Week in September. ANI’s proprietary Gated Metal Oxide Sensor (GMOSŌ) platform can operate with substantially reduced power, in a wide range of environmental operating parameters, and takes advantage of existing semiconductor manufacturing processes. The first sensor developed using the GMOSŌ platform is a CO sensor capable of monitoring CO concentrations in air in the ppm range, without using a heater component.
ANI is a leader in the development of sensor technologies utilizing nanotechnology. Dr. Zvi Yaniv, President and CEO, will present ANI’s multiple sensor platforms in a presentation titled The Nanotechnology Revolution in Semiconductor-Based Sensors, which are enabled by nanomaterials and their manipulation in the nanoscale. The development of sensor platforms provides multiple advantages over those using particular sensing principles by enabling expansion to multiple markets and applications, further expanding the commercial “Business of Nanotechnology.” This presentation will give an overview of ANI, its sensing platforms, market opportunities and life changing applications. Four exciting sensor platforms based on proven sensor technologies will be introduced. The first platform is based on films of metal nanoparticle alloys. One immediate application for this platform is a sensor for hydrogen in gas and oil environments. The second platform uses electrochemical enzyme coated carbon nanotubes for sensing chemical and bimolecules for military and civilian applications. A third platform is based on a photo acoustic principle using infrared absorption of gases.
NanoTX ’06 Conference and Expo, www.nanotx.biz, will host an International assembly of technology and business leaders at the Dallas Convention Center during International Nanotechnology Week, Sept. 27 & 28, 2006. Conference Chair Kelly Kordzik stated “NanoTX’06 will draw the top minds in four vital and interrelated nanotech areas of commerce: Semiconductor/MEMS/NEMS, Defense/Homeland Security/Aerospace, Biomed/Health Sciences, and Energy/Chemical/Environment, plus an intense study of Trends/Finance/Investing by leading experts of industry.” The conference Business Hall will include exhibits of some of the most advanced nanotechnology developments in the world today.

Our Mission: The Texas Nanotechnology Initiative is dedicated to establishing Texas as a world leader in the discovery, development, and commercialization of nanotechnology. We have organized a consortium of Texas-based universities, industry leaders, investors, and government officials in order to foster communication, collaboration, and the sharing of resources to accelerate the realization of our goal.
Why Nanotechnology? Why Now?
The history of civilization and industry revolves around man’s ability to understand and manipulate the physical world. As the ability to see and use a smaller and smaller scale of matter has progressed, the number of potential and practical uses of inert and organic material has multiplied. As an example, every product of the electronics industry is a result of the historically recent ability to manufacture at the micron (one millionth of a meter) scale. The techniques which allow reliable, economic production of products and materials at the nanometer (one billionth of a meter) are being developed right now. It is vital to Texas’ future wellbeing that, as a state, we gain and retain the intellectual and industrial resources necessary to maintain leadership and ownership of a broad base of the industry which will shape the 21st century. If we lag or delay, we will wind up working for the leaders, instead of with them.
