Anton Paar TriTec SA (previously CSM Instruments) has been leader in the development of instruments for surface mechanical properties characterization for over 30 years in both research and industrial fields.
CSM Instruments develops, manufactures and sells instruments to characterize mechanical properties of surfaces. We have been the world leader in this market for more than 30 years, first under the name of LSRH then CSEM.
CSM Instruments provides equipment that allows the mechanical characterization of a wide range of surfaces and bulk materials. Adhesion of paints, optical thin films or hard coatings can be defined using one of our Scratch Testers. These span the nano to the macro range to analyze the widest range of materials. Dynamic testing measurements can be performed to define not only the hardness of the material, but also to evaluate the plastic and elastic deformation, the elasticity module, creep and much more. For wear testing we offer the Tribometer, based on the pin-on-disc principle that operates both in the Micro and Nano regime; to record the frictional coefficient and measure the wear volume. Other equipment measures film thickness. Additionally, CSM provides three dimensional viewing capabilities of sample surfaces under most testing regimes.

Graphenea, a technology company set up in 2010, is one of Europe’s main producers of graphene. In 2013 the company received an investment from Repsol to boost its technological capacity, support its growth as a business and enable it to maintain its international lead within the emerging graphene production sector.
The company, which employs 25 people and exports graphene materials to 65 countries, supplies its products to global operations for Universities, Research Centers and Industries. Graphenea is part of a growing cluster of nanotechnology companies based at the nanotechnology research centre, CIC nanoGune. The CIC nanoGUNE is a center created with the mission of addressing basic and applied world-class research in nanoscience and nanotechnology, fostering high-standard training and education of researchers in this field, and promoting the cooperation between science community agents and the industrial sector.
Graphenea is a partner of the Graphene Flagship. The EU launched this 10-year investment push research programme that aims to find ways of commercialising graphene.
Nanoshel is a manufacturer and supplier of research chemicals, metals and materials for a wide span of applications.
Nanoshel LLC is a Wilmington, Delaware based nanotechnology company specializing in the commercialization of wide range of Nanoparticles and innovative materials of 21st century. Nanoshel is revolutionizing nanomaterials where traditional materials fall short.
Since 2005, Nanoshel has been exploring markets, developing innovative technologies, and providing breakthrough solutions using our Nanomaterials expertise. What’s interesting about materials on the Nano Scale Contrary to popular belief is that size really does matter.
That’s because when familiar materials are reduced to Nano proportions, they begin to develop odd properties. For example, plastics can conduct electricity, gold particles can appear red or green and solids can turn into liquids almost spontaneously at room temperature.
While not all material is subject to change, the manipulation of such Nano change is a cornerstone of nanotechnology research.
At the Nano scale, substances may behave differently or better compared to the same substances at macro sizes. For instance, Gold can change Colour, Carbon can conduct heat and electricity better Silver has improved antimicrobial properties.
Other changes that occur to substances at the Nano scale can include: Becoming super-elastic, Becoming more chemically reactive, Getting physically stronger or weaker, and Being able to cope with massive changes in temperature and pressure. It’s because of these unique properties that nanotechnology could be used in such a huge range of products.

QuantumWise develops commercial software for fast and reliable atomic-scale modeling of nanostructures, fully supported and delivered in an easy-to-use interface, tailored from state-of-the-art methods, and developed by experts to the specifications of our customers.
QuantumWise is a self-funded, privately owned company headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark, with local representation in Japan, Singapore and the United States. We sell our software products to several hundred companies, government labs, and universities around the world. QuantumWise was started in 2008, built on the company Atomistix (founded in 2003), which brought the academic transport code TranSIESTA into the commercial marketplace.
At present, QuantumWise has more than 20 employees world-wide, working with developing the code and supporting our users. Most of our employees have a Ph.D. in physics or chemistry, and/or are seasoned programmers with long experience in numerical modeling and GUI development.
QuantumWise positions itself as a facilitator by interacting with both the research community to extract state-of-the-art methods and techniques, and with researchers in companies and universities that seek to utilize these tools. We strive to deliver these advanced numerical tools in an easy-to-use package. Our primary aim is to make the most advanced simulation techniques within atomic-scale modeling available to a broad community of users.
