Technically Philly – Jan. 10, 2012
If you want to talk about the Philadelphia region’s distinction for startups, it lies in the slice of life sciences called nanotechnology, says Lev Davidson.
Davidson is the CEO and co-founder of pureNANO Technologies, which produces proprietary, ultra-pure carbon nanotubes said to be some 50,000 times narrower than a human hair and 100 times stronger than steel.
“Drexel, Penn and Temple have all proven invaluable resources for the company in its early stages, he said, adding that the University City Science Center could be a sensible next step for the company, which is currently being incubated on Temple’s Main Campus.
“On the investment side, both Ben Franklin Technology Partners’ Nanotechnology Institute and the state’s PA Nano Center demonstrate regional long-term commitment to investing in and supporting nano-based business,” he said. “Additionally, there are several local angel and VC groups interested in socially-focused ventures — cleantech in particular — from which nano-based startups can absolutely benefit.”

A team of researchers at IBM Research – Zurich, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Pennsylvania has developed a nano-sized silicon carbide tip that has a wear resistance of 10,000 folds higher than that of the earlier designs, a major breakthrough in nanomanufacturing for applications such as biosensors for environment and healthcare monitoring.

A new study advances toward nanoscale MRI instruments that could study the properties of specific molecules in a noninvasive way.
The research, at the interface of quantum measurement and nanotechnology, suggests that quantum computing may have applications in areas outside of pure electronics.
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany announced today that it has been selected to receive more than $5 million in federal funding for a host of nanotechnology-enabled education and research programs that support innovative applications for the clean energy, environmental, nanomedicine and defense industries.

The agencies participating in the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) appreciate the National Research Council’s (NRC) recently released report. It is unfortunate that the NRC report was already completed and in peer review when the NNI released its EHS Research Strategy in October 2011, which precluded the NRC from considering the NNI’s strategy in its deliberations.
Microscopic channels of gold nanoparticles have the ability to transmit electromagnetic energy that starts as light and propagates via “dark plasmons,” according to researchers at Rice University. …
