- NanoSensors Forms Technical Advisory Board
NanoSensors Inc. of Santa Clara, Calif., a developer of nanotechnology-based instruments and sensors to detect explosives, chemical and biological agents, announced that it has formed a technical advisory board of five nanotechnology experts to assist in identifying patented or patent-pending technologies at universities and government laboratories. The advisory board includes professors David Tomanek (carbon nanotubes) and Evangelyn Alocilja (biosensors) of Michigan State University, professor Seunghun Hong (nanowire-based devices) of Seoul National University, professor Hee Cheul Choi (sensor-related nanotube devices) of Pohang University of Science and Technology and Yung Doug Suh, PhD, (characterization of nanotubes and nanodevices) of the Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology. Each of the new board members has also signed a two-year consulting agreement with the company.
- The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
