1 - Aluminum Flakes
Separate from experimentation at CAMP, Professor Partch is coordinator/leader
for a team of scientists at U.S. Army Edgewood laboratories, Sigma
Technologies International Inc. and CAMP. Sigma is well known in
the field of metal film technology and for engineering the e-beam
and plasma apparatus needed for manufacturing continuous rolls of
material of various composition and thickness. The focus of the
team is to adapt and improve Sigma's capabilities to produce aluminum
flakes having optimized morphology for IR obscuration. This teamwork
is funded by a separate grant from the U.S. Army which supports
the activity at Sigma. One member of Professor Partch's research
group, graduate student Vernon Reddick, has assumed a summer 2004
intern position at Sigma in order to expedite the production and
characterization of the desired flakes.

Raises $12 Million in Second Round Financing
NanoDynamics, Inc., a leading company in the rapidly
growing field of nanotechnology and a manufacturer of superior nanomaterials,
recently announced the closing of $12 million in private equity
funding. The Company, a Corporate Member of CAMP, has raised over
$16 million from private investors including the Company's founders
and members of its management team. According to Chief Executive
Officer Keith Blakely, NanoDynamics has begun commercial production
of electronic-grade copper nanopowders, and its nanotechnology-enabled
Revolution-50Ô portable solid oxide fuel
cell is moving rapidly towards routine production in response to
strong interest from Fortune 500 companies.
"We are also pleased to report on the strong interest
from several corporations in utilizing our materials and technologies
to dramatically improve both industrial and consumer products,"
Mr. Blakely added.
Additionally, MetaMateria Partners, a subsidiary of
NanoDynamics, and ND Innovations, the Company's technology business
unit, have been very successful in developing and acquiring significant
technology and intellectual property in the nanomaterials space.
In the past six months, the organization has expanded its patent
and patent application portfolio significantly in several key areas
including carbon nanotube synthesis and functionalization, nanostructured
metal and ceramic powder production, innovative component fabrication
technology to address typical processing issues associated with
nanopowders, several design and operational aspects of fuel cell
systems, and numerous end-product applications.
