Amid economic gloom, semi execs chart encouraging future

Abstract:
Quantum Sphere, a Santa Ana, Calif.-based start-up, is attacking issue in the $71 billion battery market on a nano scale. The company sells spherical nano catalysts, in the 2- to 5-nm range—iron, manganese, copper, nickel, and cobalt among them—that help double battery capacity, so battery vendors, in turn, can better serve existing and go after new markets.

Mark Melliar-Smith, CEO of Molecular Imprints, noted that engineers in the storage sector continue to reduce size and tackle other issues to make affordable, denser memories. Molecular Imprints attacks the problem by using a nano-printing system that begins with an imprint mask, coats the wafer surface with a low-viscosity monomer and lowers the mask into the liquid. The liquid fills in the features using capillary action—the smaller the features, the better the action, he said. The system illuminates everything to make it solid, and the mask is removed. The process can be done as whole wafer or as step-and-repeat, he added.
