NNN Partners with NanoBusiness and Commercialization Association for Nanomanufacturing Summit 2011
As the focus on fundamental science and knowledge over the past decade has now begun to produce dividends demonstrated by the number of nanotechnology-enabled products and market growth, nanomanufacturing remains the essential bridge between the discoveries of the nanosciences and the commercialization of nanotechnologies. Nanomanufacturing, defined as the controllable manipulation of materials structures, components, devices, and systems at the nanoscale (0.1 to 100 nanometers) in one, two, and three dimensions for large-scale reproducibility of value-added components and products, seeks to accelerate the proliferation of nanotechnology enabled products through the development of new process methodologies, tools, materials, and systems that are becoming established within the global manufacturing base. In this manner, many new products, markets, and processes will benefit from value-added commercial products enabled by the collective performance of their nanoscale building blocks. More...

NanoBusiness Alliance Interview - Anil R. Diwan, Ph.D.
In this month's interview, we talk to Anil R. Diwan, Ph.D., President and Chairman of NanoViricides. Dr. Diwan has extensive product discovery and development experience while raising financing from collaborations, SBIR grants, and other revenues. He has extensive experience in a number of bio-pharmaceutical, biosciences, and biomedical fields and technologies that leads to his novel, integrative approach in solving problems with low costs, high innovation, and world-leading feature sets. Dr. Diwan is the inventor, developer, and principal investor of TheraCour and NanoViricides technologies. The nanomaterials based on these technologies form the basis of Nanoviricides drugs. More...
Hybrid Three-Dimensional Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube Architectures
Engineering of carbon nanotubes (CNT) into controlled morphologies and architectures has progressed to the point where electrodes fabricated from CNT networks have become viable candidates for applications such as flexible electronics, solar photovoltaics, and optoelectronics. Recently, Li et. al. reported on their investigation of forming organized 2D and 3D hybrid single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT)-polymer architectures. This paper reports a scalable approach to forming precisely controlled architectures of 3D SWCNT networks for integration of electrical connections. Nominally the approach would be adaptable to a wide range of metal and polymer substrates and could be further scaled down to smaller line width features as well as larger areas. More....
President Obama Launches Advanced Manufacturing Partnership
Today, at Carnegie Mellon University, President Obama launched the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP), a national effort bringing together industry, universities, and the federal government to invest in the emerging technologies that will create high quality manufacturing jobs and enhance our global competitiveness. Investing in technologies, such as information technology, biotechnology, and nanotechnology, will support the creation of good jobs by helping U.S. manufacturers reduce costs, improve quality, and accelerate product development. The President's plan, which leverages existing programs and proposals, will invest more than $500 million to jumpstart this effort. The President believes that even as we live within our means, we must invest to win the future. Investments will be made in the following key areas: building domestic manufacturing capabilities in critical national security industries; reducing the time needed to make advanced materials used in manufacturing products; establishing U.S. leadership in next-generation robotics; increasing the energy efficiency of manufacturing processes; and developing new technologies that will dramatically reduce the time required to design, build, and test manufactured goods. Leading universities and companies will compliment these federal efforts helping to invent, deploy and scale these cutting-edge technologies.
"Today, I'm calling for all of us to come together- private sector industry, universities, and the government- to spark a renaissance in American manufacturing and help our manufacturers develop the cutting-edge tools they need to compete with anyone in the world," said President Obama. "With these key investments, we can ensure that the United States remains a nation that 'invents it here and manufactures it here' and creates high-quality, good paying jobs for American workers."
