Frontier NanoSystems has established a global patent position on a new phase of matter. We call it Big Nano.
Nanotechnologies have not realized their full market potentials because the exotic properties of a nanoparticle are only observable in materials having physical size imperceptible to the human senses. This size constraint places nanotechnology beyond practical utility in many commercial applications. To hold meaningful economic value, materials need to be big enough to be easily manipulated and integrated into higher value products. Unfortunately, a nanoparticle’s exotic properties are diminished or lost when it is sintered within a collection of trillions upon trillions of nanoparticles into a material body large enough to be commercially useful. Herein lies the fundamental paradox where nanotechnology’s promises have failed commercial and ROI expectations.
Frontier NanoSystems’ patented manufacturing solutions unleash nanotechnology’s full potential by forming physically large material bodies having nanoscale grains (20-50 nm in diameter) and compositional precision. Our globally patented microstructure shown below is what we call Big Nano. It is a material large enough to hold great economic value yet one that simultaneously possesses the exotic physical properties of its less useful nanoparticle equivalent.
We form these materials as laminates integrated into a higher value product or as free-standing bodies with atomic scale chemical uniformity regardless of the material’s compositional complexity.
Our low processing temperatures enable our proprietary Big Nano electroceramics to be integrated onto the surface of semiconductor chips without affecting embedded transistors—an innovative breakthrough that enables high efficiency power management systems to drive the next generation of microelectronic integration and system design. Our principal waste products are water and carbon dioxide, the principal nutrients for the Earth’s oxygen-enriching plant life!
