Master builders of nano-electronic devices
Nanosys, based in Palo Alto in the heart of California’s Silicon Valley, is with its over 670 patents one of the world’s leading nanotechnology companies in the field of electronic nanostructures. These serve as the essential basis for constantly better and cheaper LEDs, more compact storage devices, fuel cells to power mobile phones, and flexible circuit boards and solar cells, to name just a few applications. The company’s many customers include major corporations such as Sharp and Intel, as well as the U.S. Department of Energy.
At the core of all these products and applications lies a patented platform technology which works on the “building block” principle, starting with basic inorganic elements such as silicon, germanium and gallium. By precisely controlling physical, electrical, optical or chemical parameters, nano-sized structures can be created to exact specifications in terms of size and form.
