If you're a nanostock enthusiast as well as a regular Forbes Wolfe Nanotech Report reader, there's no doubt you're familiar with Altair Nanotechnologies (nasdaq: ALTI - news - people ). The tiny Reno, Nev.-based company is a manufacturer of ceramic nanomaterials such as yttria-stabilized zirconia, titanium dioxide and alumina, and lithium titanate for myriad applications as drug delivery agents, thermal barrier coatings and as electrodes in high-power batteries and power systems.

Altair (other-otc: ATCD - news - people ) has been in the news recently for its application of lithium titanate spinel oxide nanocrystals for electric batteries, branded NanoSafe. The company claims that it has achieved several orders of magnitude improvement in charging time and battery life cycle.
