CNProbes Partners with MEMS Foundry
CNProbes, an emerging nanotech solutions provider, has executed an agreement with MEMS Foundry, a contract manufacturer. This agreement puts CNProbes closer to ramping up full-scale production and launch of CNProbes’ flagship product, a carbon nanotube probe tip for use in the atomic force microscope (AFM). The key business challenge to the commercialization of carbon nanotube probe tips has been scalable production. CNProbes is the first manufacturer in the world to be able to scalably reproduce these tiny probes. This MEMS Foundry partnership provides CNProbes enough production capacity to meet all current demand for AFM tips as well as forecasted demand.
- 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...
