Nanotechnology is a catch-all phrase for materials and devices that operate at the nanoscale. In the metric system of measurement, ¡°Nano¡± equals a billionth and therefore a nanometer is one-billionth of a meter. References to nano materials, nanoelectronics, nano devices and nanopowders simply mean the material or activity can be measured in nanometers.

Despite views that nanotechnology is a far-fetched idea with no near-term applications, nanoparticles, nanopowders and nanotubes already play a significant role in industry, environmental remediation, medicine, science and even in the household. The majority of nanotechnologies commercially used today are based on such nano-sized particles.

Brief Introduction

A nanoparticle is a microscopic particle whose size is measured in nanometres (nm). It is defined as a particle with at least one dimension <100nm
Nanoparticles often have unexpected visible properties because they are small enough to scatter visible light rather than absorb it.
At the small end of the size range, nanoparticles are often referred to as clusters. Metal, dielectric, and semiconductor nanoparticles have been formed, as well as hybrid structures (e.g., core-shell nanoparticles). Nanospheres, nanorods, and nanocups are just a few of the shapes that have been grown. Semiconductor quantum dots and nanocrystals are types of nanoparticles. Such nanoscale particles are used in biomedical applications as drug carriers or imaging agents. Various types of liposome nanoparticles are currently used clinically as delivery systems for anticancer drugs and vaccines.
In a word, Nanoparticle research is currently an area of intense scientific research, due to a wide variety of potential applications in biomedical, optical, and electronic fields.

Research Goal

Our main focus is to improve nano-particals¡¯ characters, to create a new material using in many fields. We have successfully used these new materials in biomedical applications as drug carriers and imaging agents. Also we use these in the battery materials and hydrogen techniques to improve the power material¡¯s function.

Cooperation Trend

We are looking for a partner to produce imaging agents and applications on battery materials.

Other cooperation methods include new relevant technologies implementation and exploitation, and other up-to-date business proposals or projects.
