Chief Technology Officer, NanoMas Technologies, Inc.
"The Office of Technology Transfer and Innovation Partnerships (TTIP) at Binghamton University not only provided NanoMas with incubator space in their Start-up Suites to get the company started, but also extended extremely valuable resources and support to a company in its early stage. We couldn't have achieved this much this fast without the assistance of the TTIP. We are so lucky and grateful to have them here around us."

ABOUT THE COMPANY:
Founded by three seasoned nanotechnologists at Binghamton University, NanoMas Technologies, Inc., creates nanotechnology innovations in the emerging areas of printable electronics, renewable energy and high-performance chip packaging. NanoMas’s proprietary technologies have integrated the art of precision nano-scale engineering with mass production of nano-scaled materials, enabling high value additions to a wide range of commercial applications with little extra cost.
The conductor and semiconductor nanocrystal inks developed at NanoMas will enable the new printable electronics industry to make products that are more mechanically flexible and manufactured in a fashion similar to that in the printing industry.
In late 2008, NanoMas Technologies, Inc. closed on $3.2 million in venture financing, allowing the company to further its development of nanotechnology products. NanoMas intends to use its venture capital to further the commercialization of metallic nanoparticles for use in printed electronics, conductive pastes, solar cells and IC chip packaging. “We’re hoping in the next year...to promote our products for industrial use around the world,” said company President and Chief Technical Officer Zhihao Yang. “We’re very excited.”
