ApNano Materials, New York NY, USA
22 W. 38th Street, New York, NY 10018-6262, USA

NanoMaterials Ltd. (Apnano) was established in 2002 and after its acquisition in 2013 became a fully owned subsidiary of the leading American company Nanotech Industrial Solutions, Inc. (NIS). NanoMaterials specializes in development and production of inorganic, multi-layered nanofullerenes and nanotubes, based on exclusively patented platform technology developed at the Weizmann Institute of Science.
These tungsten disulfide (WS2) based nanomaterials opened up new possibilities for developing extreme performance lubricants, coatings and polymer composites. The composition and morphology of these materials create a unique mechanism of friction-induced tribofilm release. The exfoliated nanoparticles attach to working-surfaces, fill in wear crevices and coat working surfaces with a continuous super-lubrication layer. This “surface reconditioning” effect was instrumental in the successful development of NIS’s Corp, award winning NanoLub® family of Extreme Pressure (EP) Anti-Wear (AW) and Anti-Friction (AF) lubrication additives. The Company’s R&D department is involved in extensive research and testing for additional WS2 based applications in the field of lubricants, coatings and polymer composites for such industries as defense, mining and metalworking.

NanoMaterials’ inorganic nano-particles can be incorporated into polymer matrices to increase their strength and fracture toughness, and enhance their tribological and thermal properties.
NanoMaterials’ multi-layered WS? nano-particles tackle one of the key problems of carbon nano-tubes, which is high rates of defects and agglomeration that translate to problematic dispersability.

Applied Multilayers LLC, Battle Ground WA, USA
1801 SE Commerce Ave., Battle Ground, WA 98604, USA

Applied Multilayers LLC offers next generation optical coating sputtering systems for high quality optical and metal coatings. Our patented Closed Field Magnetron (CFM) sputtering technology is simple, scalable and significantly less expensive. CFM allows multilayered film coatings onto sensitive polymer substrates or plastics which other deposition technologies would consider prohibitive due the elevated plasma temperatures.
You will discover numerous applications such as durable IR coatings, durable visible AR coatings, high laser damage coatings, ophthalmic, electro-chromic and solar absorbers. CFM also readily deposits thin film oxides, nitrides, carbides or pure metals with near bulk film densification with no film stress.

Applied Photophysics, Beverly MA, USA
100 Cummings Center, Suite 440C, Beverly, MA 01915, USA

At Applied Photophysics, we are committed to progress. Everything we do is done because we believe it will make a difference, that in the hands of our customers, it will advance scientific knowledge and understanding, and have a wider societal impact. We challenge entrenched views, encourage fresh ideas and incorporate the best of them in our products.
Since its creation in 1971 by The Royal Institution of Great Britain under the leadership of Nobel Prize-winning Lord Porter, Applied Photophysics has remained at the forefront of the technologies of circular dichroism, stopped-flow kinetics and laser flash photolysis.

Instruments:
Quantitative Circular Dichroism: qCD
Stopped-Flow Spectrometry
Laser Flash Photolysis

Polymer Applications:
Interest in conjugated polymers used in e.g. photovoltaic cells has grown over recent years and there is considerable interest in advancing organic photovoltaic devices (OPV) by systematic optimisation of device processing conditions and development of new materials. The use of laser flash photolysis in the near infrared region allows direct monitoring of photogenerated charges.
Charge photogeneration at donor/acceptor heterojunctions is the basis of the function of organic solar cells. Extensive attempts are currently being made to improve OPVs. A clear understanding of OPVs is crucial for systematic optimisation of processing conditions and the choice and development of materials employed. A blend of P3HT and PCBM is involved in one of the highest efficiency solar cells to date. The yield and lifetime of the generated charges can be measured using transient absorbance spectroscopy.
