Lux Research

New York, NY | Posted on August 07, 2006

Lux Research, the world’s leading research and advisory firm for nanotechnology, announced special new highlights for attendees of the second annual Lux Executive Summit: Commercializing Nanotechnology, to be held on October 16-17, 2006 at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Lux Executive Summit attendees will participate in an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Harvard’s Center for Nanoscale Systems (CNS). The CNS operates a diverse array of facilities including two cleanrooms for nanofabrication, unique “soft lithography” tools pioneered at Harvard, many instruments for nanoscale imaging and analysis including electron microscopes and focused ion beam (FIB) tools, and hardware and software for computational nanoscience simulations and modeling. As a node of the NSF's National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN), the CNS features researchers from Harvard and other leading universities.

“On behalf of Harvard University’s Center for Nanoscale Systems, we look forward to welcoming Lux Executive Summit attendees to Cambridge – the center of a densely rich region of nanoscience activity – and to a tour of our facilities including our new Laboratory for Integrated Science and Engineering (LISE),” said Eric Martin, Technical Director of Harvard University’s CNS.

The Lux Executive Summit will feature exclusive presentations from Lux Research’s world-renowned analyst team and from top executives at leading firms active in nanotechnology such as IBM, 3M, Bayer, and DuPont. Recently confirmed 2006 Lux Executive Summit speakers include Air Products & Chemicals Chief Technology Officer Miles Drake and Motorola Vice President Vida Ilderim.

“The senior corporate executives attending the Lux Executive Summit are working to bring nanotechnology from the lab to the commercial marketplace,” said Lux Research CEO Peter Hebert. “Labs like Harvard’s CNS represent the cutting edge of nanoscale science and technology development.”

2006 Lux Executive Summit sponsors include BOC Group, Foley & Lardner LLP, PowerShares Capital Management, Lumera, NanoTerra, Nucryst Pharmaceuticals, Altair Nanotechnologies, Gradient Corporation, Starpharma, Telomolecular, The Livingston Group/Axiom Capital Management, and Beecher Carlson.
