Nanosys and In-Q-Tel Expand Its Macroelectronics Collaboration to Develop High-Performance Electronics
PALO ALTO, CA | Posted on August 22nd, 2007
Nanosys' proprietary Macroelectronics utilizes a unique film of nanostructures to form arbitrarily large area high-performance electronic circuits, without the need for many of the complex and costly processing steps common in traditional thin-film transistor manufacturing. The technology is compatible with flexible or rigid substrates such as plastic or glass, and enables electronic integration of multiple functions directly onto a single substrate material. Macroelectronics can be applied to numerous application areas, including flexible or flat panel displays, RFID (radio frequency identification) tags, and antennas.
"Nanosys continues to deliver impressive technology capabilities," said Troy M. Pearsall, In-Q-Tel's Executive Vice President of Technology Transfer. "Nanosys' proprietary technology offers great promise for leading-edge applications for customers in both the government and commercial markets."
"In-Q-Tel has been very instrumental in helping us identify high-value nanotechnology-based product opportunities to address important government needs," said Calvin Chow, Chief Executive Officer of Nanosys. "We look forward to the exciting new products that can emerge from this next stage of our collaboration."
