Shrink Nanotechnologies' NanoShrink Material Featured in "Scientific American" Magazine

Carlsbad, CA | Posted on April 12th, 2010

Shrink Nanotechnologies' scientific founder, Michelle Khine, was highlighted as one of four "brilliant minds" who created a new paradigm in science. An excerpt from the article stated, "As a child Khine spent countless hours creating designs on Shrinky Dink plastic and watching them shrink in the oven. Years later she returned to her favorite toy out of necessity when, after joining a brand-new university, she lacked much-needed facilities for making microfluidics chips."

"Khine developed a technique to make microfluidics chips directly from Shrinky Dink plastic. Now Shrink Nanotechnologies creates products such as stem cell research devices and solar cells using a polymer that shrinks 95 percent and does so more consistently than the toy (60 percent shrinkage) that served as its inspiration," stated the article.

Mark L. Baum, Shrink's CEO, added, "We are pleased that a media source as reputable as Scientific American published on our technologies. We are equally as pleased that soon, we expect to begin to roll out products based on Michelle's ideas, branded as NanoShrink, to a market that we believe is hungry for this flexible new fabrication platform."

Scientific American, the oldest continuously published magazine in the U.S., has been bringing its readers unique insights about developments in science and technology for more than 160 years.
