Colorado Nanotech, Photonics Associations to Relocate
The Colorado Nanotechnology Association (CNA) and the Colorado Photonics Industry Association (CPIA) are moving from Denver to Boulder, the Boulder Economic Council announced at its first economic summit last week. Both associations will be located at the offices of Ehrhardt, Keefe, Steiner and Hottman, PC. The CNA and CPIA offices are currently housed in the Advance Colorado Center in the World Trade Center in downtown Denver. The council said the move will facilitate better collaboration for both groups, as most of their industry base is in Boulder, as well as the University of Colorado at Boulder, a frequent partner. The move is expected to be completed in late June.
- 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.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
