Abstract:
Nanorex Inc., the world's first developer of tools for the design, simulation and analysis of atomically precise molecular machine systems, has provided a one-year grant of NanoEngineer-1 software to Cetin Cetinkaya, associate professor of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering at Clarkson University. The $8,000 gift includes associated technical support. Cetinkaya will use the Computer-aided design (CAD) software in his senior level course Nano/Micro-Systems Engineering and in his nanotechnology research.

Nanorex Grants Powerful Molecular Modeling Software To Clarkson

Potsdam, NY | Posted on February 2nd, 2007

The grant to Clarkson is not the company's first academic outreach. An early prerelease version of NanoEngineer-1 was provided to the Nanotechnology and Robotics Class at the California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science (COSMOS) at UC Santa Cruz. Students attending the class were introduced to the fundamentals of molecular modeling and molecular dynamics simulations.

3-D computational modeling tools for nanomechanical engineering, enabling a new generation of scientists and engineers to design, model, simulate and analyze productive nanosystems." The company is located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.

NanoEngineer-1, Nanorex's first product, is a 3D nanomechanical engineering program. It includes both a sophisticated CAD module for the design and modeling of atomically precise components and assemblies, and a molecular dynamics module for setting up and simulating mechanical nanosystems.

K. Eric Drexler, often referred to as the "father of nanodynamics," serves as Nanorex Inc.'s chief technical advisor. Drexler is a researcher, author and policy advocate focused on emerging technologies and their consequences for the future. He pioneered studies of productive nanosystems and their products. In 1991, Drexler received a doctoral degree in the field of molecular nanotechnology from MIT, the first degree of its kind.

One of Nanorex's senior scientists is Dr. Damian G. Allis, a theorist-in-residence at Syracuse University and research fellow in the U.S. Intelligence Community. Allis' research interests include quantum chemical applications in molecular manufacturing, solid-state computational methods in vibrational spectroscopy and materials detection, computation drug design and modeling with Molecular Insight Inc., and numerous independent research efforts. Allis will present a seminar and workshop for Professor Cetinkaya's ME 591 Nano/Micro-Systems Engineering class on February 8, 2007.
