Danish Nanotech Pioneer moves to Silicon Valley

Posted on September 28, 2006

Innovation Center Denmark and Atomistix A/S invite you to the Atomistix housewarming at their new Silicon Valley location.

Atomistix is a leading provider of software solutions for development of nanotechnology. As the first company of its kind, Atomistix has pioneered a system of integrated software modules based on quantum theory - the Atomistix Virtual NanoLab - that accurately calculates properties associated with electron distribution and transport, and simulates experiments with integrated nanoscale systems. The software is a unique tool to understand, predict and visualize electronic processes in atomic and molecular structures. The software offers competitive advantages to nanotechnology scientists and engineers by developing materials and designing products with radically new properties and functions.

Atomistix is employing world leading experts in the field, and is now offering its expertise in atomic scale modeling to companies in the Silicon Valley.

Housewarming reception:

Thursday September 28, 2006
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
at Innovation Center Denmark
200 Page Mill Rd, Suite 100, Palo Alto

5:30 - 5:45 Introductions
5:45 - 6:00 Challenges in modeling of nanoscale systems by Kurt Stokbro, PhD, Co-founder and Executive VP Business Development
6:00 - 6:15 The fast growing market for atomic scale modeling software by Thomas Magnussen, PhD, Co-founder and CEO
6:15 - 6:30 Questions
6:30 - 7:30 Network, hors d'oeuvres & wine

Come join a select group of people to make this a welcoming evening while enjoying a nice glass of wine and great food.
