Palo Alto, CA | Posted on November 23rd, 2009

On display for Rep. Lofgren were products the company is gearing up to launch in several major categories. Rep. Lofgren reviewed products ranging from bright new cell phone displays with near perfect color gamut, more efficient batteries, and advanced bandages for wounded soldiers which are all made with Nanosys' architected, process ready components.

"I'm confident that we can turn this economic downturn into an opportunity by investing in our national infrastructure and in our emerging green economy," said Rep. Lofgren. "America's greatest resource has always been its unique innovative spirit. It's this innovative spirit that will guide us to a stronger and greener economy, and I was delighted to see it in action at Nanosys."

"We are fortunate to have such a strong technology advocate as Representative Lofgren in our backyard," said Jason Hartlove, Nanosys chief executive officer. "We look forward to being part of the economic recovery of Silicon Valley with our advanced technology product offerings."
