Spotlight on the NNI's Podcast Series:

NNIManaging Expectations: Making it to the Sweet Spot with a Nanotech Business - Dr. Baratunde Cola discusses building his company, making nanotechnology seem less scary, and the need for "passion and sobriety" when it comes to the expectations of working at a small nanotechnology company. He also explains why he may be the poster child for the NNI.

A National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) podcast series. Researchers and innovators discuss their work at the nanoscale, the challenges they've faced, and how they've connected with the NNI. Watch video or read more...

Innovation Partner Spotlights:

SandiaFalling Particle Receiver for Concentrated Solar Energy - The falling particle receiver uses sand-like particles that fall through a beam of highly concentrated sunlight focused by an array of mirrors. The particles are heated to temperatures over 700 °C, stored, and used to generate electricity in a power cycle or to create process heat. Read more...

Idaho National LaboratoryEnergetic Materials for Sensitive Data Security - Tools to conclusively destroy data/circuitry when an electronic device is lost, stolen or becomes obsolete, to protect sensitive data and proprietary technology from unauthorized access. Use of energetic technologies would greatly enhance security of data/proprietary technology because an energetic reaction can be initiated by trigger or remote detonation. Read more...

New Jersey Institute of TechnologyContinuous Polymer Coating of Drug Crystals, Particles and Nanoparticles - A thin polymer coating protects individual drug crystals from adverse environments and allows for controlled drug release. Current methods of producing such coatings are very demanding batch processes. Employing hollow-fiber membranes NJIT developed two easily-scalable techniques for continuous polymer coating of drug crystals/nanoparticles using cooling crystallization or anti-solvent crystallization.
