Intertek MSG Meeting all your materials characterisation needs

Intertek MSG can bring to bear its many years of experience in the analysis of nanomaterials in order to help you to develop and optimise the use of new materials and products suitable for a wide variety of applications.

Developments in nanotechnology are concerned with two issues - the design and manufacture of small particles, and the incorporation of these particles in a controlled manner into a liquid or solid carrier matrix to form a product. Of course the purpose is to produce materials where the inclusion of the nanoparticles leads to an improvement of the end-use properties of the final materials. Intertek MSG can contribute, through the provision of detailed analysis, to both areas. Nanoparticles Intertek MSG has a comprehensive array of tools for the measurement of nanoparticle properties, including n Analysis of particle size and morphology using electron microscopy,

x-ray diffraction, photon cross-correlation spectroscopy and a Disc Centrifuge – allowing quantitative analysis of particles as small as a few nanometres. n Application of image analysis to generate quantitative information on

size and shape distributions. n Carbon nanotubes analysis using raman spectroscopy to monitor tube 8 success through nanomaterials

diameter and sample purity, and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and elemental analysis to provide information on sample purity or catalyst residue content. n Coating analysis using spectroscopic techniques, or by surface

analysis. NANODISPERSIONS The particle sizing techniques mentioned above can equally be applied to dispersions of particles – although for the PCCS and disc centrifuge methods it will in general be necessary to generate dilute solutions before reproducible results can be obtained. Complementary techniques, such as x-ray diffraction and spectroscopic methods can provide additional information on the composite morphology, and quantify aspects of homogeneity or orientation. In particular, MSG’s extensive capabilities in ‘Chemical Imaging’ allow us to study, and display, the variation in chemical composition of materials with sub-micron resolution.

Physical Properties and Product Performance Intertek MSG can characterise a wide range of physical properties, in order to assess the impact of the incorporation of nanoparticles in a product. Capabilities include: n Mechanical properties (e.g. toughness, scratch resistance or impact

strength, viscosity and rheological performance) n Optical performance (clarity, reflectance, refractive index) n Electrical properties (conductivity, charge dissipation).

Working with partner laboratories within the wider Intertek Group, Intertek MSG has a track record of nanomaterials analysis in fields as diverse as polymers, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Of increasing importance

in all these areas is the development and application of validated analytical methods in order to ensure compliance with the fast-changing regulatory environment – where additionally Intertek can provide expert consultancy and advice on how to ensure materials will meet national and international requirements including for example pre-clinical study design, toxicology, epidemiology and risk assessment. Intertek MSG’s expertise stretches well beyond the nanomaterials arena, and through our own scientists and those of the wider Intertek group of laboratories, we can service all your materials testing, characterisation and certification requirements.

AssuredNano® the premier Occupational, Environmental, Health & Safety (OEHS) accreditation programme for nanotechnology-based organisations

AssuredNano® promotes good current OEHS practice in the rapidly evolving field of nanotechnology. It is comprehensive both in its scope and its applicability. Covering the full product life cycle, it is as relevant to a fundamental research group as it is to a manufacturing or recycling operation. Its modular approach, together with audit led compliance and a commitment to continuous improvement, ensures relevance to all organizations and promotes continuing OEHS conformance.

Following the merger of AssuredNano® and nanoToxTM, a global force has been established to tackle all issues relating to the occupational hygiene, toxicology and environmental impact of nanomaterial and nano-enabled products.

OEHS exists throughout a supply chain and hence AssuredNano® strongly encourages successfully accredited organisations to promote the value of accreditation to their suppliers and customers in order to assure their in-bound and out-bound processes.

How does AssuredNano® accreditation work? Accreditation may be on a business unit or plant basis, whichever is the more applicable. However, multiple businesses on a single site require multiple accreditations. Once prepared, the organisation is audited to the AssuredNano® standard and, if successful, is presented with its AssuredNano® Accreditation Certificate, valid for one year before re-audit falls due.

Why should I choose AssuredNano®? Internal expertise underpinned by world experts AssuredNano® is designed by industry experts, highly experienced in the methods and processes used to manufacture nanomaterials, to deliver a no nonsense and realistic approach to nano OEHS. Underpinning this expertise is AssuredNano’s access to a worldwide resource of experts

It is expected that successfully accredited organisations will wish to demonstrate their status to their stakeholders and in particular their supply chain partners. Consequently, organisations are entitled to display the AssuredNano® logo on their stationery, during the validity of their accreditation. Going forward, it is vital that commitment to nanomaterial 10 success through nanomaterials

Relevance to the whole supply chain No matter where an organisation sits in the supply chain, the AssuredNano® programme ensures that its operating procedures and methodologies conform to the requirements of current good nano OEHS practice

Relevance to organization function AssuredNano® is just as applicable to the research group in a corporate or university laboratory as to a manufacturer of nanomaterials or nanoenabled products. Its programme covers all facets of a nanomaterial or nano-enabled product’s life including n n n n n

FOR MICROSCOPY FOR MICROSCOPY

The use of piezo-based tip/tilt mirror systems and ultrasonic drives from PI guarantees the precision required for the refractive correction of visual acuity. The drives are used to control and focus the laser beam. When corneal tissue is removed with laser beams to model the shape of the cornea in the optical axis, the resulting refractive power of the cornea matches the length of the eyeball again. For laser beam control, piezo-driven tip/tilt mirror systems not only offer the required accuracy but high accelerations and a great dynamic bandwidth as well. They are compact and can be integrated in higher-level systems, even in small spaces. They allow an optical deflection area of up to 120 mrad, extremely fast response behavior (10 ms to 1 ms with mirror) as well as position resolutions into the nanoradian range. Piezo actuators are the driving force behind these one-, two- or three-axis systems. In the case of tip/tilt mirror systems with several motion axes, piezo drives are used in parallel-kinematics positioning systems. Unlike serial systems, there is only one moving platform with a common pivot point. Integrated high-resolution position sensors ensure high linearity values of better than 0.25% over the full travel range and a repeatability of typically 5 µrad.

The nanoscopic holes that lead to manufacturing leaps

There is something in common between the food carton that holds your milk and your mobile phone: both contain extremely thin material layers, where the tiniest of defects can dramatically shorten the product’s lifetime. The opaque lining inside food cartons, the transparent layers that coat imminent flexible phone screens and the flexible solar panels that will eventually turn your roof into a powerhouse, all contain thin-film technologies that require top quality coating to ensure an industrial edge.

As a part of the NanoMend project, scientists and engineers in European academia and industry are developing defect imaging, detection and cleaning technologies designed for high-speed manufacturing of these new products.

To raise the competitiveness of the well established market of coated paper packaging and elevate the emerging market of flexible electronics, the European Commission has granted 7.25 million to a research project called NanoMend, for the detection and removal of nano-defects.

NanoMend Project Co-ordinator, Professor Liam Blunt from the University of Huddersfield, said, “The key challenge facing the project is overcoming the conflict between the speed at which the substrate rolls through the production machine and the resolution of the defect detection system, so that it is simultaneously possible to identify defects down to the nanoscale without slowing down the production. Achieving this will involve integrating defect detection and technologies into fast paced, continuous manufacturing lines.�

The NanoMend consortium, led by the University of Huddersfield, includes significant European players in the packaging, electronics, and solar energy industries. Flexible electronics has the potential to make a significant contribution to the recovery of European manufacturing, but in order to successfully capitalise on this potential, it is critical that efficient production processes be developed. A significant hurdle to the implementation of a high level of production is the reduction and eventual elimination of nano-scale defects that occur in thinfilm coatings laid on flexible substrates such as plastic films. Coated papers, as well as newer technologies, such as thin-film digital displays and flexible solar modules, require barrier coatings to ensure their longevity against everyday environmental elements. These barrier coatings and the underlying thin-films may have defects. These defects can take the form of contamination by fine particles or pinholes that are up to one hundred-thousand times finer than a human hair. In food packaging, pinholes can let gases pass through coated papers and accelerate food oxidation, causing it to deteriorate. In flexible electronics, pinholes may internally reduce the quality of underlying thin-film electronic devices and externally allow water vapour ingress that will progressively damage them. 16 success through nanomaterials

NanoMend will establish two working pilot production lines. One line, featuring defect detection and removal technologies, will be sited at the Swiss manufacturer of flexible solar modules, Flisom AG. The ultimate aim of the work is to increase solar module efficiency, lifespan and consequently solar energy affordability. A second production line will also be installed at the Finnish paper and coated fibre products manufacturer Stora Enso, where the detection and cleaning of defects, generated during the manufacture of polymer coated fibre products will extend the shelf life of packaged food products.

SMC3: Surface Modification and Characterisation Collaboration Centre Awarded a £5.3M grant from the UK Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills’ Regional Growth Fund (RGF) scheme, the Surface Modification and Characterisation Collaboration Centre (SMC³) aims to drive collaborative research in interfacial sciences for product development and innovation. Led by Procter & Gamble (P&G), in partnership with Durham University, Peerless Systems and the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI), the award contributes towards a combined strategic investment of £14M by the consortium, over a three year period. Drawing upon a wealth of expertise, the consortium is driving cutting-edge research and innovation to develop new cleaning and surface modification technologies. In particular, the centre aims to develop technologies that will bring new, more environmentally friendly household care products to market in order to; reduce energy consumption during washing/cleaning cycles and minimise water usage without compromising the high performance, value, freshness and convenience expected by increasingly demanding consumers. Shak Gohir, Practice Director for CPI’s Innovation and Growth Services team said, “New cleaning and surface modification technologies are vital to almost all consumer and industrial settings, from home care to manufacturing of high-value products. Working closely with partners, CPI will help establish new projects with industry and raise further funds for the centre in order to ensure its ongoing sustainability and wider economic benefit for the region.” SMC3 forms a strategic hub for building new research projects and technology transfer initiatives in the North East and the UK, and the consortium hopes to establish additional collaborative partnerships with companies that are not competing with P&G in the marketplace but can benefit from the knowledge, expertise, facilities and capabilities of the new centre. As such, SMC3 will assist many UK companies looking to; invest, research, develop and commercialise new surface modification and cleaning solutions for industrial application in the; oil & gas, renewables, chemicals, aerospace, automotive, pharmaceutical, electronics, construction and other sectors. Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research) Professor Tom McLeish, at Durham University, which recently won the Global Business Development University Partner of the Year award from Procter & Gamble, said, "This grant recognises the quality of Durham University’s continued partnership with P&G as well as the technical and scientific depth we can bring to collaborative research with commercial partners. The project is a major investment in the educational and business opportunities that the University can support to help to enhance the region's economic well-being.”

“The project investment recognises the skills and expertise of the Newcastle Innovation Centre (NIC), which is a key part of the P&G global R&D organisation. The project continues the significant investment in the region by P&G and, together with our partners, will bring exciting possibilities in the area of surface modification across several industries.  Through our Connect & Develop innovation strategy, P&G aims to work with outside organisations on 50% of all new initiatives and this project brings the strengths of our North East partners to this critical area of our work on household products.” Charles Bragg, Research & Development Director for P&G Newcastle, Working closely with industry, government and academia to build projects across sectors that will help to boost UK manufacturing industries, SMC3 encourages engagement from SMEs and non-competing industry looking to utilise the potential of interfacial science to develop new products and processes. For more information about the project, please visit www.smc3.org

Group Finance Director Michael Cook of Peerless Systems said, “This project has created a valuable opportunity for Peerless Systems to work closely with world class partners in the field of R&D; this is creating opportunities to grow our business which, as an SME, would not otherwise be available.” NanoPerspective® 17

nanodispersions are complex assemblies of several compounds that organize into microstructures that boost product performance. On occasion, we engage in technology development for third parties. Along with many years of experience in the physicochemical formulation and mixing of dispersed systems, NDT holds a cavitationfree mixing technology capable of reaching nano-sized drops and particles in top-down process schemes. Embedded in the processes we test in our laboratories and pilot plants is the ability to scale up the manufacturing of virtually any product we design. The robustness of the latter capability stems from fundamental fluid mechanics principles.

One major technological development is ready to launch the production of a liquid fuel based on colloidal petroleum coke and coal particles. The first commercial showcase of this technology will be advanced this year. We will also launch a new venture manufacturing nanotechnology-based biopesticides. The company is currently heavily engaged in the development of colloidal-based specialty food products.

The Printed Revolution. Lacking in creativity?

The long-promised revolution in electronic manufacturing –‘ the printed revolution ‘ has been a long time coming. Are we finally seeing some progress, towards the multibillion dollar markets emerging? Are there any companies making money from Printed Electronics? And just where are the promised ‘sunlit uplands’ for Printed Electronics. Over the last couple of years I have noticed significantly less noise about printed electronics than in the past decade. Is this because companies are just getting their ‘heads down’ getting on with it, or is it because they simply have less to talk about and nothing much is happening? Are we in a period of calm before a storm or are we seeing real progress from research to development? Where is the ‘Killer Application’ that we have all been waiting for? No one talks about this anymore. In a sense, there is an increasing maturity in the industry. Gone is the wild hubris, the extravagant claims to be reinventing the world. Weekly press releases claiming to be able to walk on water are replaced by a new reality. In the real world, just how do you move from research lab to production? This move is proving harder than many had anticipated. The printed revolution is promised low manufacturing costs, green energy efficient devices, rollable, flexible screens and many more desirable features and qualities. Most of these ‘must have’ features are no longer talked about with quite the same breathless excitement. 24 success through nanomaterials

Large global companies involved in printed electronics have large high profile research projects, They are addressing big challenges such as OLEDs (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) for general lighting applications in global markets. These companies need to see big addressable markets to justify the big research budgets; nothing else will feed these machines to justify the investment for future growth. Will the break through ideas and devices come through these major international companies or will be it be through the small SMEs working quickly and cheaply with low overheads going after niche markets? In my travels within the printed electronics industry I see lots of great ideas. Many of these could be genuinely game changing. I personally know of quite a few printed electronic products that will come to market in the next 12 months. One or two of these, if we are lucky will be ‘Killer Applications’ but none of them are the result of innovations at large companies. They are the result of what could be described as ‘Organised Serendipity’. The results of a meeting of minds. I have long advocated

the importance of inviting the wider creative industries to engage with the printed electronics world. However, organising this mix is harder to achieve than would be expected. The two worlds do not drink in the same bars. I know from personal experience that artists, designers and creatives are fascinated by the hard science magic that scientists weave and, in turn, scientists are surprised by the ideas generated by a community that tends to use the right side of their brains: opposites always attracting. Creating opportunities for the two communities’ to engage is the key and this takes real effort. Many companies simply do not get it…never having had the experience of working with creative people and not seeing the value in cross fertilization. “Organised Serendipity” is usually arranged through governmental bodies, network transfer programmes, design colleges and university grant funding programmes. They are rare occasions and are increasingly few and far between. Also many science and research based companies struggle when faced with the difficulty of understanding the different vocabulary of the creative language. This is a shame as I know from personal experience that it is at such meetings that the magic happens and we need more of it.

horned into products where they are over complex and over developed. Solutions to problems that do not exist or never needed solving. Simple, elegantly designed products that work sell, it’s not the science behind them. The printed electronics industry needs to create more opportunities for ‘Organised Serendipity’. Those elusive ‘Killer Applications” will not invent themselves and I know that the biggest and best of them all has not yet been invented. Is printed electronics is coming of age? We are now learning to manufacture in volume, I expect to see a flood of press releases over the next year announcing real innovations and developments in printed electronics, but to take it to the next level we need to bring in the creative community. The recent commissioning of the ISS line at CPI, NETpark is one example of real effort being made to bridge the gap from research to real world manufacturing with its focus on using standardised industrial process’s to manufacture Printed Electronic products.

University of Glasgow James Watt Nanofabrication Centre

The James Watt Nanofabrication Centre at Glasgow builds upon the Universities 35 year experience of nanofabrication. The centre is a 750 m2 cleanroom which houses over £20M of micro and nanofabrication tools. Whilst hosted and run by the School of Engineering, the centre is fully multidisciplinary with users and collaborators in the schools of Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Biochemistry and Cell Biology. The centre is run as a pseudo-industrial operation by 18 technicians and full commercial access to the centre is available through the startup company Kelvin NanoTechnology. Over the last 5 years over 250 international companies and 90 universities have used the facility either for collaborative research, development or for delivery of unique solutions using the expertise at Glasgow. Engineers from industry rub shoulders with PhD students and postdocs in the cleanroom. The cleanroom is also part of the EPSRC III-V National Facility and the STFC Kelvin-Rutherford facility. Glasgow’s unique selling point is the world leading electron beam lithography and low damage process transfer capability. The centre holds the world record for the smallest features written by electron beam lithography of 2.5 nm and also has proprietary alignment marks allowing different patterned layers to be aligned to an accuracy of 1 silicon atom diameter. Such accuracy allows nanogaps between metal electrodes to be made for chemists interested in probing individual molecules. For making nanoscale devices, low damage pattern transfer is also an important capability. Recently the centre has used 5 nm lithography followed by reactive ion etching with low energy to fabricate Si nanowires of 1.9 nm diameter aimed at healthcare and security sensing. With this capability, research aimed at delivering 10 nm CMOS transistors, the fastest telecoms lasers and integrated Si photonics all have major industrial interest. In optics, work on plasmon filters using nanopatterned holes allows different colours to be filtered. The technique is being looked at with ST Microelectronics to investigate if a single layer of patterned aluminium can replace 3 different layers of RGB filters, thereby reducing the manufacturing cost by around 25%. The technology works in a similar fashion to some of the colours obtained in stain glass windows and it was also used to produce the world’s smallest colour Christmas card and the smallest university crest.

Researchers at Glasgow were the first to demonstrate that mesenchymal stem cells could be directed to grow only into bone through the use of nanopatterned surfaces. The technique is now being trialled in hip replacement surgery at the Southern General hospital in Glasgow. The stem cells help the implants repair themselves thereby allowing the implants to last the rest of the patient’s life. Multiple healthcare technologies from the centre have been spun out for exploitation including lab-on-a-pill into Mode Diagnostics, CellOPTIQ drug testing into Clyde Biosciences and the CMOS array ISFET technology was used by Ion Torrent to develop tools that can sequence the human genome in a day. The Centre is always happy to discuss solutions with new collaborators and customers.

SapientSensors® – customised screening diagnostics

There is increasing emphasis within healthcare on the use of preventative medicine rather than reactive strategies and treatments. Such strategies deliver enhanced healthcare in a more efficient and cost effective manner. Point-of-care screening diagnostics provide an essential basis for this to be delivered.

A major opportunity to deliver preventative medicine is via the wider use of hand held sensing instruments. These instruments allow ordinary medical staff, or even untrained personnel, to carry out rapid tests for infection at the initial consultation stage. Formerly such tests would have required costly laboratory analysis and incurred significant time delay. In addition, transportable point of care diagnostics permit screening to be carried out in locations remote from conventional pathology laboratory and healthcare facilities. This enables the monitoring of treatment strategies in the field plus more rigorous implementation. SapientSensors® is building a new generation of low cost, rapid response, single use diagnostic sensors for application in hand held point of care devices, providing customised screening without requirement for pathology laboratory support. SapientSensors®’s technology exploits the fact that each disease creates a unique set of chemicals in the body which are “biomarkers” and hence potential analytes of that disease. Biomarkers may be proteins, fragments of RNA, fragments of DNA, enzymes or simple “small” molecules. A suite 30 success through nanomaterials

of such analytes gives a bio-signature for the disease. The technology under development enables the accurate detection of such a biosignature. In order to take its device to market, SapientSensors® is integrating a spectrum of technologies ranging through biomarkers, functionalized surfaces, printed electronics and telephony. We are constantly searching for strategic partners with expertise which we can apply in these fields.

Materials

Making an Impact at the Nano Level With four research groups covering Nano Materials, Energy Materials, Sustainability and Surface Engineering, the Department of Materials at Loughborough University undertakes a wide range of research. It ranges from extending the life of power generation plant through to developing compostable polymers for packaging and creating materials capable of surviving temperatures of nearly 3000ºC for hypersonic flight applications. Work has been under way for nearly a decade into developing nanostructured materials for a wide variety of applications and some of this has major potential for making a significant impact on our society and is beginning to be translated into industry. A spin-out company, Polyfect Solution Limited (PSL), was set up in July 2008 by Professor Mo Song to exploit the development of a novel, patented method for fabricating functional polymer powders. The technique solves the problem of dispersing nanoparticles into polymers for the production of both nanocomposites and nanocoatings without the use of chemical additives. A very wide range of applications exist across a number of quite different industries. For example, intercalated or exfoliated clay/polyethylene or polypropylene nanocomposites have extensive applications in food packaging where the presence of the clay particles reduces the permeability of the polymer film to air, water and oxygen thus ensuring the contents of the packaging are preserved longer. With scale up of the technology progressing very well, it is anticipated that commercialisation is likely to occur by 2013/14. Other applications include the dispersion of conductive fillers such as carbon black, carbon nanotubes and graphene into polymers to provide anti-static packaging, flooring, fuel systems and housing for electronic devices, whilst taggant latex coatings offer opportunities in security protection [Note: A taggant is a chemical or physical marker, which can include the use of nanoparticles, that is added to plastics and other materials during manufacture and which help to identify products and their source]. Other work involving nanocomposites based on polymers includes the incorporation of a novel organoclay based on a plant oil surfactant into polylactic acid that offers the potential for biodegradable nanocomposites for packaging. Being developed by Dr Noreen Thomas, additional work on the nanofiller system has shown significantly reduced water vapour permeability and improved biodegradability. Meanwhile, Prof Sanjay Rastogi is exploring the inclusion of fillers such as carbon nanotubes and nano zirconia into polyolefins to influence the crystallization behaviour of the polymer with the goal of achieving highly oriented polymeric structures that display enhanced tensile modulus, impact strength and viscosity. Work is also ongoing in the field of nanostructured metals. Dr Simon Hogg is exploring the development of bulk nanostructured aluminium alloys for high strength applications. Nanoquasicrystalline aluminium alloys containing high levels of iron and chromium are promising materials for attaining elevated temperature capability and ultra high strength in light weight materials. They also have the advantage of tolerating large impurity contents so can be made using cheaper and recycled material. However, despite their attractive properties the production of these materials has been restricted to the laboratory scale to date. The work is focused on scale-up towards commercially relevant quantities to create a lightweight alloy that displays ultra high strength, stiffness and toughness at up to 400ºC and that can replace the use of more expensive titanium alloys. 38 success through nanomaterials

Current work is now concentrating on a detailed characterisation of the alloys using synchrotron X-ray and neutron radiation and electron microscopy. This is helping in the development of an understanding of the complex microstructure, thermal expansion behaviour and dominant strengthening mechanisms. The occurrence of Tin (Sn) whiskers on electroplated surfaces, typically from a micrometre to several millimetres long but just tens of nanometres in diameter has become of major concern to the electronics industry. It has become a serious issue since Lead (Pb) could no longer be used in solders and solder finishes under the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) legislation. Whisker growth mechanisms are still unclear and methods of mitigation are mostly concerned with, sometimes unreliable, polymeric conformal coatings. A three-year research programme (WHISKERMIT) led by Dr Geoff Wilcox and Dr Mark Ashworth is examining methods of whisker mitigation both at the manufacturing and in-service stages for electronic devices. Replacing electroplated Sn-Pb finishes with Sn is accepted industrially, but can lead to enhanced tin whisker growth. WHISKERMIT is examining the electroplating process itself to promote a lower whiskering tin coating. For in-service electronics a new generation of structurally modified polymeric conformal coatings will be produced, capable of acting as a barrier on surfaces with a high propensity to whisker growth. It is hoped that this dual approach will see a marked reduction in whisker growth from currently industrially utilised coating processes. In the ceramic field, licensing is currently under way for research that has led to the ability to produce a range of genuinely nanostructured ceramics made from powders as fine as 20nm; this is smaller than the size of a typical virus. These ceramics have been found to display some extremely useful properties. For example, Zirconia (ZrO2) is known to be one of the strongest and toughest advanced ceramic materials but it is very vulnerable to attack by moisture, particularly at temperatures in the range of ~100 – 300ºC. The moisture causes a catastrophic phase change that can reduce conventional, submicron zirconia into a pile of damp powder in less than 1 hour at ~250ºC. The new nanostructured material has been shown to survive at least 3 weeks with no trace whatsoever of the phase change even beginning to occur. This has the potential to lead to the use of zirconia in such critical applications as hip replacement implants, dental ceramics and even valves for the petrochemical industry. The processing developments achieved with zirconia are being adapted for nano Barium Titanate (BaTiO3), a dielectric material that underpins much of the world’s electronics industry. The lower firing temperature involved with nanostructured ceramics means that much cheaper metal electrodes can be used, very significantly reducing the price of components. Work on other ceramics such as Zirconia Toughened Alumina (ZTA) for hip joint applications and Alumina (Al2O3) and Yttrium Aluminium Garnet (YAG), the latter two for potential use as transparent armour, is under way.

KCMC connect, facilitate… deliver

Collaborative innovation in materials chemistry is a key driver to develop and commercialise materials with nanoscale functionality – and which play a crucial role across high value, advanced manufacturing. And with its “connect, facilitate… deliver” role to bridge industry need and academic capability the Knowledge Centre Materials Chemistry (KCMC) provides single-point access to a wide spectrum of multidisciplinary materials chemistry research. By delivering knowledge transfer, KCMC helps companies to shorten innovation-to-market timescales for sustainable solutions - notably across the energy, healthcare and new materials sectors. Between them, KCMC’s four research partners - the Universities of Bolton, Liverpool and Manchester and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) at Daresbury - cover a broad range of science and technology competencies crucial in the development and commercialisation of advanced products. Capabilities include modelling and simulation; thin film and surface chemistry; nanostructured materials; printed electronics and smart/ multifunction materials. Manchester: The application of nanotechnology for a diverse range of sensors has attracted steadily-growing attention. Research at KCMC partner the University of Manchester is focusing on the discovery and development of novel materials for use in platform technologies for sensor applications.

Energy-saving glass is key in reducing both heat loss from buildings and fuel consumption. The University of Liverpool’s Centre for Materials and Structures has a key role in this extensively TSB-funded programme. In the world of engineering and structural components, nanocomposite coating technology has delivered significant benefits over classic electroplated chromium. In an ongoing development with MSC Ltd., Bolton University has developed Ni and Cu nanocoatings with much improved hardness, wear and corrosion resistances. They reduce cost and eliminate use of toxic Cr-plating solution. Involved in the project from the beginning, KCMC helped to make the plan of development, schedule of delivery and implementation of tasks. Societal benefits: “The KCMC delivery mechanism is to build academic and industry collaboration and create pathways that can really help speed innovation towards commercial application – and especially to benefit SMEs, for whom this leverage can be crucial”, says Director Dr. John ContiRamsden.

These notably include thin film transistors utilizing organic semiconductors, and photonic devices.

“Additionally, it’s no accident that societal benefits in energy, health and sustainability are a notable theme connecting projects at the forefront of the partners’ nano portfolios”.

Diverse examples of sensor applications include early detection of pancreatic cancer, sensors to detect chemical explosives and radioactive materials and low cost sensor systems that will monitor environmental contaminants and disease biomarkers.

By the end of its third full year, KCMC had delivered a GVA of x 10 the original combined £15m. investment started in late 2008 by government and the university partners.

Liverpool: KCMC partner Liverpool University is also recognized as being at the leading edge of high value manufacturing for advanced applications – and especially in the application of atomic layer deposition (ALD) used in nanostructured film coating of metals, oxides and nitrides. The University has over a decade of experience in the technology, across project areas including semiconductors, sensors, optic displays and biomaterials, and with applications in energy, healthcare, IT and advanced materials. Among recent projects: A leader in development, manufacture and supply of semiconductor quantum dot (QD) fluorescent nanoparticles – which have unique optical and electrical properties - NANOCO has been looking to extend QD lifetimes, but with retained optical performance. The focus in a series of major projects has been on using novel nano scale processing, with KCMC connections and the team at Liverpool University aiding NANOCO’s innovation across key markets in LED lighting and displays, solar cells and bio-imaging.

2011/12 saw 82 first time company introductions to the four university partners, with 50 new projects formally contracted and 250 industry engagements progressed. Total industry engagements since start-up moved beyond 500 and several key five-year project targets were matched or exceeded by the end of year three on 31 March 2012. KCMC is moving towards a new role in the UK innovation landscape beyond Spring 2013 The powerful combination of dedicated science resources, effective networking, research partner reputations and proven performance through challenging economic times mark KCMC as an impressive model for collaborative innovation serving nanotechnology.

The UK is home to a number of world-class companies whose success depends on their development and use of advanced materials. Fortunately, the UK is recognised for its world-class understanding of materials and when this is combined with the country’s excellent design capability, these world-class companies would agree that the UK is the best place to do business in materials. Examples of advances in materials technology include the use of advanced composites in aircraft and racing cars to reduce weight, reduce emissions and lower fuel bills. The UK has developed new ways of designing lighter power modules through smart choices of materials. The increasing use of smart materials for healthcare, sports applications and the fashion industry has catapulted the UK to become one of the top nations in the world for design and innovation. A major challenge for the UK is to ensure that there is an ongoing investment in materials science and technology to support the much needed innovation and wealth creation by UK businesses. Making choices between different technologies is both challenging and complex. The Materials Knowledge Transfer Network (Materials KTN) and the Technology Strategy Board, through the implementation of its Advanced Materials Strategy, have been helping UK companies and researchers choose wisely.

&OLPDWH FKDQJH HQHUJ\ JHQHUDWLRQ DQG HIÀFLHQW XVDJH materials security, waste reuse and recycling are all at the forefront of most nations’ strategic plans – and increasingly consumers’ minds. Materials advances are at the heart of solutions enabling, for example, the effective end-of-life deconstruction of structures and the recycling and reuse of product waste. Everyone is familiar with the environmental pressure to reduce waste by recycling, but another factor is the preservation of materials that may become scarce or expensive. Supply shortage is a good reason for recovering materials. Materials security means making sure you have the materials needed to build the item that has been designed. It means maximising recycling and recovery, improving antitheft measures, substituting for more-available materials where possible, but more importantly ensuring supply. In an economy fuelled by materials, we need to be sure that we can get these and keep them for a very long time.

Many small-and-numerous sources go largely ignored. For example, advanced crystals in a road generate power when they are compressed by vehicles passing over them. Advanced materials are often key, and promise the availability of devices which may have maintenance-free lives of hundreds of years, deriving power from the environment in which they operate. This source of energy includes photovoltaics (power from light), thermoelectrics (power from heat), piezoelectrics (power from pressure) and electrodynamics (power from movement). In many cases energy harvesting and storage depends on materials capability and cost. We have to make sure that the cost of the materials is low enough to do these things. That is where materials science comes in. The aim of development is to reduce costs, make installation easy and the result robust.

There are new materials available to meet the growing need for biomaterials and biomarkers to manage and monitor serious clinical conditions. In hospital environments where MRSA and C.

The first Nano-Carbon Enhanced Materials (NCEM-1) consortium was launched in April 2012 in Cambridge, UK and in the first three meetings over 20 organisations from 9 countries have participated. The CfBI is now preparing NCEM-2 for spring 2013 which promises further opportunities for industry innovators to engage with leading supply chain companies and world class experts in this commercialisation pathfinder programme.

Kissell, Director of Technology Development from NanoRidge, USA, presented on recent developments in incorporating highly conductive carbon nanotubes into copper metal, resulting in a composite material with superior properties followed by a presentation from Dr Francesco Bonaccorso from the University of Cambridge, on graphene applications in electronics.

NCEM-1 members are: University of Cambridge (UK); Nokia Research Centre (UK); ST Microelectronics (Italy); International Copper Association (USA); Nexans (France); Bosch (Germany); Codelco (Chile), National Grid (UK), Trinity College Dublin (Ireland) and Arup (UK). The first meeting was held at Downing College, Cambridge, and delegates were addressed by leading academics from the University of Cambridge and experts in nano-carbon materials. Prof. Bill Milne from the Department of Engineering presented on nano-carbon electronics, Prof. Alan Windle and Dr. Krzysztof Koziol, from the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, presented scientific advances and commercialisation challenges related to carbon nanotube fibre technology. Consortium members from Nokia Research Centre (UK) and International Copper Association also gave presentations about their vision and challenges related to the commercialisation of nanocarbon technology in mobile electronics and copper metal composite applications. The feedback was very positive and Malcolm Burwell from International Copper Association wrote in his email after the first meeting: “We all felt that the value obtained from the single meeting that we just had justified the yearly fees on its own.” The second meeting was July 2012, in Edinburgh’s Dalmahoy Marriott Hotel and Country Club, the Scottish Baronial Manor, set in 1000 acres of parkland and one of Scotland’s premier golfing venues. It started with a masterclass in NanoSafety, delivered by Dr Steve Hankin and Dr Craig Poland, from the Institute of Occupational Medicine, Edinburgh. Dr Kyle 46 success through nanomaterials

Dr Kyle Kissell, Technology Director from NanoRidge in Houston, Texas commented after the second NCEM meeting: “I believe that consortia like this are a critical step towards bridging the gap between extraordinary science and product commercialisation. We feel privileged to be invited to speak to a group that is interested in DOING something as opposed to just TALKING about something. The connections we created during the two days of interactions will be crucial for the success of our products and our company.” Dr Anna Gergely from Steptoe & Johnson LLP co-hosted the third meeting November 2012 in Brussels and presented an insight into nanomaterials related regulations in the EU. Guest speakers included Dr David Arthur CEO of the SWeNT in the US and Dr Peter Krueger, Head of Working Group Nanotechnology, Bayer MaterialScience, Germany. Peter also leads Inno.CNT, a €90M German Government supported programme about carbon nanotube commercialisation. Christos Tokamanis, Head of Nano Sciences and Technologies at the European Commission (EC) in Brussels, gave a presentation about FP7 NMP Theme and an insight into nanotechnologies and nanomaterials within a new Horizon2020. The NCEM-1 consortium is planning to visit centres of excellence in Germany and Ireland in early 2013 and planning of the new NCEM-2 consortium has already started with an opportunity for new members to join.

Nanotechnology in paints, coatings and printing inks Substances with nanoscale particles are nothing new to the paint and printing ink industry; 2,000 years ago the Roman architect Marcus Vitruvius Pollio used synthetically manufactured soot for wall paints. As we know today, that soot came in the form of nanoparticles. Silica is another example of a material that has been used, in particle sizes of between 4 and 20 nanometres, for almost 100 years to improve the flow properties of paints.

Modern microscopy technology (scanning electron microscope and atomic force microscope) now enables these nanoscale particles and structures to be seen visually and measured, allowing scientific research into the inner makeup of paint, coating and ink films. It is now possible to use nanomaterials in a targeted manner for their formulation which have become of major significance in the development of new coatings. Nanotechnology, relying on physical, chemical or biological effects of particles or material structures in a size range of less than 100 nanometers, is a key technology for the future. Over the next 30 years, the number of improvements to conventional paint products and new functional paints is expected to increase at breath-taking speed. For the next 10 years, it has been estimated that roughly 20 percent of the paint industry’s sales will come from nanotechnology applications in the form of soḀcalled “smart coatings”. It should not be forgotten, however, that particles in this size range have existed long before industrialization. Nature produces immense amounts of nanoparticles through the weathering of stones and rocks, in forest fires or on sea shores. By contrast, the technical production of nanoparticles and nanostructures for the purpose of achieving novel properties has started only recently. Important novel properties have been achieved by the addition of nanomaterials to products such as: n n n n n n n n

Furthermore, the practical application of nanotechnology is producing research in the following fields: n n n n

Electro-conductive paints Self-healing paints Nano-primers for anti-corrosive paints Heat-insulating paints

Nanomaterials currently used in paints, coatings and inks include some of the following substances: n n n n n n

Titanium dioxide Silicon dioxide Carbon black Iron oxide Zinc oxide Silver

Titanium dioxide has photocatalytic properties in nanoscale form and is found in certain wall paints for removing organic pollutants from ambient air. Nanostructured silicon dioxide serves as a rheological additive and is also used in self-cleaning wall paints. UV protection in transparent coatings is the most important application for iron oxide and nanoscale zinc oxide. Nano-size carbon black protects against electromagnetic radiation. Silver in nanoform is a constituent of wall paints for hospitals and food processing operations, in order to prevent attack by bacteria and other micro-organisms. The industry has undertaken a number of studies to ensure that there is no risk from the industry’s products. These have shown that, when sanded or subject to wear, or at end-of-life after ageing, any added nanomaterials are not released from the film matrix into the environment.

Nanocoatings – a Guide to the Perplexed The scale-up from lab to production of nanocoatings hits the double problem that coating is hard and nanoparticles can be difficult to deal with. A single short article can’t solve all your scale-up problems, but there are some proven principles that will greatly shorten development time if taken on board by the whole team. 1 Only use pre-metered coating techniques In practice, this means not to use any roller coating techniques because they require excess coating to be scraped off and recycled – a recipe for trouble. This means that there is only one relevant technique that can be used – slot coating. The coatweight is controlled by flow rate and web speed rather than machine settings, leaving “only” the issue of coat quality. Here we meet a key problem. Most nanocoatings will be relatively thin and slot coating cannot realistically coat below, say, 20µm wet without extreme engineering. Fortunately there is a very simple and powerful variant of slot coating called Tensioned Web Slot which can routinely coat a few µm wet with surprisingly little effort.

3 Use HSP to manage compatibility It is obvious that if you have nanoparticles with a very hydrophobic shell, you wouldn’t think of trying to disperse them in water or try to integrate them into a polyvinylalcohol matrix as they are “unlike”. It’s far better to formulate via the “like goes with like” principle, if you can define “like”. Fortunately, Hansen Solubility Parameters (HSP) are a proven, robust method for defining likeness, via three parameters for each solvent, polymer or nanoparticle, that capture the Dispersion, Polar and Hydrogen Bonding characteristics. By measuring the HSP of the nanoparticles and the polymer it is then simple to calculate which solvents are going to be compatible with each component. Importantly, if there is no single solvent that has the right properties (cost, safety, volatility…) HSP allow you to optimise a solvent blend to give you the right HSP using solvents which, on their own, may be of no use.

Fig 1 A tensioned web slot coater delivering 5µm wet coatweight. This would be impossible with conventional slot coating using a steel roller. 2 Thin coatings show defects more than thick ones Two issues make life very difficult for those creating thin nanocoatings. The first is that a small hole of diameter d in a coating of thickness h on a substrate with contact angle will spontaneously grow to a large defect if h/d<2(1-cos( )). This means that a small reduction in thickness can transform a perfect coating (h/d is above the critical limit) to one full of holes (h/d is below). If the contact angle of the coating to the substrate is low then a thinner coating will be stable. So, for thin coatings you have to be either much cleaner (so there are no initial defects) or have a much lower contact angle between coating and substrate. The second effect is that the time for coating lines of wavelength in a coating of thickness h to level out is proportional to ( 4/h3). This effect is familiar to painters: fine bristles and thick coatings give smoother coatings than coarse bristles and thin coatings. So coating defects that previously flowed out before reaching the oven can suddenly be full of coating lines if the thickness is reduced even by a relatively small percent.

Fig 2 For a nanoparticle with HSP of [16.7, 5.0, 8.0] a blend of three solvents produces a perfect match. As the volatile 1,3 Dioxolane evaporates first, the HSP Distance (Ra) increases rapidly which might be desired to produce rapid phase separation of the particles. Further tuning of the solvent blend lets you control what happens during evaporation – for example the volatile component might be especially good for the quantum dots so they will crash out early during evaporation if that is required for overall functionality. Such a trick is now being used for controlled phase separation in organic photovoltaics. Summary Experience shows that these three principles are relatively little-known in the nanocoatings community. But I, and others who now use these ideas routinely, can confirm that by taking these principles on board the nanocoatings team will be able to produce better coatings in a shorter development time.

Nanotechnology revolutionizes coatings industry Nano-sized particles are not new to coatings, but the sector is uniquely placed to benefit from the explosion of ideas and potential for new functionalities that nanotechnology can bring. The sector is also keen to push the concept further, which is the motivation behind the Nanotechnology and the Coatings Industry conference organised by the British Coatings Federation, Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network of the Technology Strategy Board and the PRA (Paint Research Association). After three successful programmes in Nottingham, the popular one-day event looks set to become an annual fixture. Last year’s event heard from additives maker BYK, which is using nanobased silicon dioxide to improve scratch resistance in coatings. Rather than simply increasing hardness as might traditionally have been done in solventborne clear coats for cars, BYK has modified the particle surface to enhance polarity differences between nanoparticle and resins, thus increasing elasticity. The coating then acts like a foam and bounces back after an impact, avoiding damage. Long-term UV protection is another area where BYK sees potential for nanotechnology. To reduce damage caused by UV light, organic UV absorbers are often incorporated into a coating. However, these absorbers commonly suffer from migration and degradation over time. On the other hand, inorganic UV absorbers, such as zinc oxide and cerium dioxide, do not migrate, so the potential is there for them to keep their properties for the life of the coating. BYK is conducting trials using nanoparticles of organic absorbers such as these, noting that particle size will affect the transparency of a coating. BYK is also working with carbon nanotubes (CNT), which can bring electrical and thermal conductivity to coatings and inks, even at very tiny amounts, but have a strong tendency to form agglomerates. BYK is meeting this challenge and making CNT dispersions in different media such as solvents and water with up to 8% multi wall CNTs content. Second to present was Intrinsiq Materials, which has developed a copper nanoparticle-based ink for printed electronics applications. The company was originally spun out from QinetiQ, and last year launched a prototype, stable, cost effective 80wt% copper screen print ink formulation designed for photonic curing at room temperature in air by laser or broad band flash techniques. Conductivities are comparable to commercial silver inks, but much, much cheaper. Potential applications include security, displays and photovoltaics. The company has additional inks under development, including nanoparticle-based nickel and silicon. It is also part of a government funded programme investigating the cost effectiveness and viability of printed copper antibody-based biosensors for disease detection, initially targeting sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia and gonorrhoea. Compared to devises that reply on gold and glass, these have the potential to dramatically reduced cost and time. Evonik is producing silica-nanocomposites that are ready to use and give a very high scratch and abrasion resistance to coatings. Particle sizes are kept small enough so there is no loss of transparency or gloss. The composites are also able to enhance barrier properties. Unlike waxes, silicone oils or other surface modifying agents that work only in the top layer of a film, these are dispersed throughout the resin matrix. The conference also heard from TransCond, a European funded project that is looking to replace high VOC (volatile organic compounds) and heavy metal formulations in electrically conductive coatings. At the moment, the focus is on how to take carbon nanoparticles and introduce them into a VOC-free paint polymer system. Another European funded

project, R2R CIGS, is trying to develop a low cost, high volume method for producing flexible, thin film solar modules using roll-to-roll production technology. Corrosion control and anti-fouling, two important functions served by coatings, were discussed separately. According to TWI Technology Engineering, the next generation of anti-fouling coatings are likely to have low fluorine content – even though fluoro-polymers dominate the market today - and will be based on nano-structured surfaces. Meanwhile, Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute is investigating nanoparticles with active inhibitor-release properties that could be used in corrosion protection coatings to replace chromium-6, but says it doesn’t have something near commercialisation yet.

Johnson Matthey Flame Spray Pyrolysis A Unique Facility for the Production of Nanopowders

Johnson Matthey, the international speciality chemicals company, has dedicated capability to produce a range of nanopowders using the flame spray pyrolysis technique.

OTHER APPLICATIONS The method has the capacity to flexibly produce particles of different sizes and phase compositions. Examples of more complex and functional materials include CeO2 and doped CeO2 as polishing agents (Figure 3) for the microeletronics industry, catalysts such as PdAl2O3 for the synthesis for fine chemicals (Figure 4) and nanophosphors such as Fe doped LiAlO2 FIGURE 1 TEM micrograph of ZnO nanomaterials prepared by flame spray pyrolysis

The Flame Spray Pyrolysis Facility can be used to produce a wide array of nanopowders ranging from single metal oxides such as Al2O3 to more complex mixed oxides or catalysts. It has capacity of up to 100g/h and a number of process variables will enable the preparation of well-defined target materials. The creation of this development scale Flame Spray Pyrolysis Facility was partly funded by a grant provided by the DTI under its Micro and Nano Technology (“MNT”) Network initiative. Housed at Johnson Matthey’s Technology Centre near Reading, UK, it offers a unique facility for the production of nanomaterials. HOW IT WORKS Flame spray pyrolysis is a one step process where liquid feed - a metal precursor(s) dissolved in a solvent - is sprayed with an oxidising gas into a flame zone. The spray is combusted and the precursor(s) converted into nano sized metal or metal oxides particles, depending on the metal and the operating conditions. The technique is flexible and allows the use of a wide range of precursors, solvents and process conditions, thus providing control over particle size and composition. Flame spray pyrolysis is a versatile technique for producing nanoparticles and can be used to make metal, metal oxide and more complex nanoparticle materials. Johnson Matthey has specialised in using the technique to make nanoparticle catalysts and has developed considerable inhouse expertise in this area. This knowledge is transferable into other application areas. MATERIALS AVAILABLE TO DATE The Flame Spray Pyrolysis Facility has been used to produce zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticle powders which find application as UV barriers; a TEM micrograph of the material is shown in Figure 1. The UV barrier effectiveness of a commercially available ZnO nanomaterial has been compared with one produced using Johnson Matthey’s flame spray pyrolysis equipment.

Figure 2 shows the spectra of both ZnO nanomaterials. It is important to note that no stabiliser was used. As expected for UV-barrier materials, no transmission (T%) is observed for both products in the UV region. In the visible region, however, a Johnson Matthey flame made ZnO material shows increased transparency properties with higher T%. This is in agreement with the small particle size revealed by TEM analysis and the characteristic ease at dispersing the flame spray material in liquid media.

Nano CAPE-able Technology from Concept to Commercialisation

The Director of CAPE Prof Bill Milne (left) and the Chairman of CAPE Prof Daping Chu (right).

CAPE Building, Electrical Engineering Division, Engineering Department, Cambridge University.

Cambridge University’s Centre for Advanced Photonics and Electronics (CAPE) was established with a clear vision to bring the best academics in the field together with the best industrialists to research ground breaking ideas and get them to market quickly. CAPE has a unique strategic partnership between leading global industrial companies and the University, to explore synergy in research activities, business interactions for commercial exploitation of inventions and outreach to different business sectors, government organisations and society.

already started to bear fruits, seeing the exciting scientific advances being translated into tangible technologies. One example is the ViHPs project, which culminated in the development of a highly sophisticated holographic projector which is now entering pilot fabrication stage for large scale mass production in the near future. The other one is the SiLC project which has developed a new type of nano materials for novel solar control in the built environment.

CAPE was founded in October 2004, bringing together the Electrical Engineering Division of the University’s Department of Engineering with several industrial partners to see how best to get the University and industry to work together. It was formed to enable the University to address global issues involving open innovation, in partnership with companies of global importance in the supply chain of the photonics and electronics industries. The CAPE partners are strategically placed in relationships where their interests do not overlap or conflict. The mix of partner interests has shifted over the time but the existing partners continue to represent global business interest. Now, after eight years, we know it has worked well. The key to this success has been the creation of an open and well defined partnership as prescribed by the CAPE Partnership Agreement (CPA). It is a joint agreement between the university and industrial partners , taking a balanced view of academic and industrial interests. The CAPE Steering Committee defines everything that develops within CAPE. All the industrial partners are represented on the CAPE Steering Committee, and the University and the industrial partners have equal representation. Through joint governance and joint sponsored research, the CAPE Partnership has developed a research portfolio at the cutting edge of contemporary technology with very significant societal relevance in its focus on topical areas, from nano technology to the built environment. CAPE and its CPA are constantly evolving to adapt to internal and external environmental needs with the aim of enhancing academic research and creating added value for business. CAPE has been funded entirely by its industrial partners from the start with an initial £10 million investment. Its focus has reflected the interest of both its industrial partners and the university’s research strength. Currently there are four themes/project areas : Enabling Materials and Processing, Energy and the Environment, Communication and Systems, Sensors and User Interfaces. In the electronic and photonic field, developing research to the product stage takes a long time, often a 15 to 20 year period. One has to be persistent, forgeing long-term relationships and investment. The original inventions and focused early stage research work in CAPE have 56 success through nanomaterials

The success of CAPE has been one of the factors that led to the University of Cambridge receiving government funding through the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), which granted £7 million over five years to fund the Cambridge Integrated Knowledge Centre (CIKC), demonstrating the chain reaction that large scale funding can have. The CIKC works with UK industry enterprises to create business propositions and a knowledge base for commercialisation in the field of molecular and macromolecular materials - another important application of nanotechnology. The benefits of CAPE have been two-fold . The industrial partners have had expert technical input from the University of Cambridge’s research groups and have also benefited from the interaction between them as fostered by CAPE under non disclosure agreements. The University researchers have gained too. University research staff are often academically excellent, but are sometimes not too aware of what is going on in the commercial world. CAPE has helped a lot in that respect. With our partners, CAPE plans to build on its success and integrate with a wider area of the academic community, with a broader range of business enterprises and organisations, including small and medium companies, thereby reflecting current trends in the industrial landscape in the UK. We will continue to build upon CAPE’s success with a vision based on its core spirit, to provide: n

7KHWHFKQRORJ\ Coherence Correlation Interferometry (CCI) is a modern noncontacting metrology technique providing surface roughness and step height measurements with sub-nanometre precision. It offers quantitatively surface texture and surface form in three dimensions and at high speed. The technique is suitable for a range of samples from super smooth to rough, allowing direct comparison of a wider range of surfaces than any other method. Scanning the fringes through the surface and then processing the information gives a quantitative 3D image with 0.01 nm vertical resolution. The data can then be used to generate accurate quantitative parameters such as roughness, step height, feature width, form, volume, and angle. Recent developments also mean that thickness top surface roughness and interface roughness of semi-transparent films can now be measured. &RDWLQJDQDO\VLV Measurement of both thin film and thick film coatings from 50 nm to around 10 Âľm is possible. The sub-nanometre vertical resolution and ~1 Âľm lateral resolution allows precision measurement of thin films in applications such as solar PV cells, displays, metal films, optics, parylene coatings, polymer films, ophthalmic lens coatings, hardness coatings, photoresist and semiconductors. $XWRPDWLRQ A computer controlled stage offers the ability to measure multiple parts automatically.

Science Parks

Where Science and Industry Meet Oxford University Begbroke Science Park

Alison Crossley, Manager of Oxford Materials Characterisation Service (OMCS) formerly BegbrokeNano, looks at life on the Park over the past decade. Nanotechnology has always been a core activity at Oxford University Begbroke Science Park. In 1998, the University’s Department of Materials needed a home for new microscopes to look at structures on an atomic scale. Central Oxford was no place for such sensitive equipment and the University opportunistically purchased the former Cookson Group technology centre at Begbroke, five miles north of Oxford. Materials researchers and their microscopes moved in and were soon joined by new start-up companies seeking access to the fruits of one of the world’s leading universities, its world-class scientists and of course, the aforementioned microscopes, which motivated the formation of OMCS. That initial mix of young businesses working in proximity to researchers, sharing facilities and knowledge remains a key feature of the park which today is home to around 400 people around half of whom are working for companies. Begbroke is attractive to early stage and rapidly growing companies who benefit from the incubator environment fostered on the site. There is no denying that Begbroke has achieved its key aim to encourage innovation and enterprise guided ably by Professor Peter Dobson, its academic director. Oxford Gene Technology (OGT), which is now acknowledged to be one of the most successful gene sequencing licensing companies in the world, established itself at Begbroke in 1999 and continues to base its operations at the site. Another more recent example of success is Oxford Nanopore Technologies (ONT), which was spun out from the University using technology developed by Professor Hagan Bayley in the Department of Chemistry, started at the Begbroke Science Park in 2005 and grew to employ around 70 scientists before moving to larger premises at the Oxford Science Park in 2009. 62 success through nanomaterials

The company is developing a unique nanopore platform for the detection of biomolecules and sequencing of DNA and is currently valued at over GBP 100 million. The proximity of researchers from different departments encourages collaboration. Dr Helen Townley of the Department of Engineering Science is working with medics and colleagues from the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and the Department of Materials using novel nanomaterials to improve imaging of lymph nodes to investigate gynaecological cancers. “It’s a huge advantage that we can both make the nanoparticles and characterize them on site” Dr Christiane Norenberg organises courses in Nanotechnology in conjunction with OMCS and the Department of Continuing Education. These include regular week-long summer schools on various themes of nanotechnology and a part-time online Postgraduate Certificate in Nanotechnology with plans for a full Master’s course. Professor Dobson is also proud of Begbroke’s track record of promoting knowledge transfer in other ways, saying: “We have many informal activities on site that encourage networking. Our themed breakfast seminars are always well attended as are our Begbroke Transfer events”. Two of the UK Technology Strategy Board’s Knowledge Transfer Networks are also represented at Begbroke, Environmental Sustainability and Materials. 2012 has been an exciting year at Begbroke. A new road into the park was opened by the Vice Chancellor Professor Andrew Hamilton in April this year “Begbroke has become a thriving science park, its model has been copied in many institutions around the world. When I brought the Vice Premier of China to visit Begbroke earlier in the year he remarked that in China there would be a motorway to a science park like Begbroke”.

Graphene – novel material, novel risks? The emergence of the graphene family of materials is giving rise to exciting applications using properties such as the exceptional in-plane electrical conductivity, outstanding thermal conductivity, high strength as well as outstanding resistance to gas permeation. Graphene research is rapidly developing, as researchers and industry strive to validate and develop commercial products that exploit these properties in the fields of electronics, battery electrodes, super-capacitors, structural composites, conducting polymers, packaging films, printable inks and biomedical technologies amongst others. However, for any new technology to reach its maximum potential, any health risks posed by exposures to hazards need to be identified and mitigated.

What are the risks from graphene and should you be concerned? The concern about graphene relates to its plate-like shape and the potential problems this may cause in sensitive regions of the lungs where oxygen and carbon dioxide are exchanged. It is crucial that this region remains clear and healthy. The body’s cells tasked with keeping this region clear of particles and bacteria that we breathe in are called macrophages (derived from the Greek for ‘big eaters’), however these cells can only engulf particles smaller than themselves (~15-20 micrometres). For most substances, this is not normally a problem as the lung has evolved so that larger particles cannot reach this region of the lung. However, due to an ‘accident of aerodynamics’, certain particles which are physically large (i.e. larger than a macrophage can comfortably deal with) can penetrate these regions as they exhibit a low aerodynamic equivalent diameter (AED)1. This is recognised and best understood for fibres such as asbestos which can be very long, yet due to a small diameter, can penetrate into the deep lung where they can cause problems. Plate-like particles such as graphene may also penetrate this region of the lungs despite having a lateral diameter greater than that which would normally be considered respirable. Their thin, platelet structure, similar to the small diameter of fibres, confers a low AED allowing them to penetrate the deep lung and deposit where they may cause problems such as that shown recently by Schinwald et al2. When particles deposit in the sensitive gas-exchange region of the lungs, and macrophages struggle to engulf and clear them, repeated exposures can lead to an accumulation which may cause inflammation, scaring (fibrosis) and potentially more serious problems, if perpetuated. As with any material, high levels of repeated exposure may lead to unwanted health effects and graphene is no different. Activities with a high likelihood of inhalation exposure raise concern regarding the possible adverse effects on health, which need to be understood and mitigated. These can involve process design considerations and/or the use of control measures. For example, wet methods of production such as chemical/ electrochemical exfoliation lower the risk from airborne exposure, whereas methods of production such as arc discharge producing dry powders that may become airborne need to be operated with adequate engineering controls. These issues are as relevant to researchers and applications development as they are to manufacturers, and it is important that a practicable yet informed approach is taken to identifying and managing the potential risk.

Mitigating risks In terms of mitigating one of the key drivers of the potential hazard, limiting the size of the graphene platelets could enable macrophages to effectively clear any deposited particles thereby reducing particle accumulation. In addition, other modifications such as making them more bio-soluble so that they dissolve or break-up in the lung may also make these particles safer-by-design. However, making such changes can be technically very challenging, or impossible, and may impact negatively on the performance of the material. Therefore, controlling exposure to a known or potentially hazardous material is often the most pragmatic solution, using the tried-and-tested approaches enshrined in risk assessment. By undertaking risk assessment, the nature and likelihood of potential harm to health and the environment from substances, processes or technologies can be characterised and acted on. Graphene’s aerodynamic behaviour influences its inherent hazard, which can be assessed and used in conjunction with an assessment of exposure-prone activities to recommend appropriate control measures. The exposure assessment needs to consider the potential for release at each stage in the material’s life cycle and clearly identify the known and unknown aspects of exposure. In cases where there is uncertainty about the health risks posed by novel materials, a precautionary approach needs to be adopted and reviewed as more information becomes available to resolve uncertainties. There is a great deal of advice and guidance available to help inform undertaking risk assessment and in implementing safe practices for handling nanomaterials. In summary, the evaluation of risk should be made using the best available information, so that appropriate control measures can be developed and implemented to eliminate or reduce risks to levels as low as reasonable practicable.

Project promises to unlock Nano secrets The European Commission is currently funding a project, coordinated by HeriotWatt University, to propose a route to deliver an Intelligent Testing Strategy for Nanomaterial Human and Environmental Risk. The following article outlines the project, its achievements to date, its goals and how you can become involved. The exciting properties exhibited at the nano-scale have led to the development of vast numbers of different types of nanomaterials for a wide variety of applications. Such applications include medicines, cosmetics, sunscreens, clothing, food, food packaging, sporting equipment, paints and electronics. In fact, almost any application can include nanotechnology in some context. This has led to potential concerns about the safety of such nanomaterials due to the likelihood of exposure to both humans and the environment. The unusual properties of nanomaterials make it difficult to predict their biological reactivity, it is therefore essential to be able to assess the risk associated with their use. National governments and the European Commission recognised the potential benefits of nanotechnology at a relatively early stage in the development, but at the same time they realised that for this potential to be maximised, the issues of risk needed to be better understood. This has led to the funding of a number of relatively large scale European projects (e.g. PARTICLE_RISK, ENPRA, INLIVETOX, NANOIMMUNE, NANOIMPACTNET, QNANO, MARINA, NANOTEST). These projects have been very successful and the amount of information available with respect to the human and environmental risks of nanomaterials is almost overwhelming. However, we still lack sufficient knowledge to allow effective risk assessment of nanomaterials to be used by industry, regulators and for scientific research. In order to capitalise upon the research knowledge available and in production, the European Commission has funded a project entitled ‘Intelligent Testing Strategy for Engineered Nanomaterials - ITS-NANO. ITS-NANO is a pan-European project aimed at identifying the most appropriate and effective research required to deliver an Intelligent Testing Strategy (ITS) for assessing exposure, hazard and the potential risks of engineered nanomaterials. This project has drawn together information from multiple sources to identify knowledge and research gaps in this area in order to build a relevant and ‘intelligent’ strategy for the future. A key aspect of the development of this ITS is the integration of stakeholders (including industry, regulators and scientists) at every stage of the process to ensure the ITS meets their needs and delivers a consent driven strategy. Using this combination of an extensive gap analysis combined with expert opinion, ITS-NANO will develop guidelines and research priorities for the short, medium and long-term, in order to reduce uncertainty in assessing the risks of nanomaterials and achieve the ultimate goal of reducing hazard testing (in vivo). Rather than simply providing a list of the gaps in knowledge, the project will prioritise these gaps and provide a structured approach to delivery of the essential knowledge requirements. This integrated approach, comprising multiple elements, should speed up the risk assessment process while reducing costs and the number of animal tests. The ITSNANO aims to be ’intelligent’ both at the strategic level by identifying and setting a priority research agenda to reduce the research gaps according to the need of stakeholders (industry, regulators) and at the tactical level, to be economical and ethical (i.e. to adhere to the 3Rs principle). The project is proposing a framework for grouping of engineered nanomaterials based on their chemical, physical and biological properties 68 success through nanomaterials

and on their subsequent exposure routes and biological impacts in order to intelligently design next-generation nanosafety evaluation and risk assessment strategies. ITS-NANO has already identified a range of research and knowledge gaps in data management, physicochemical properties of nanomaterials, exposure assessment, hazard assessment (toxicology and ecotoxicology) and risk assessment. These research gaps have been prioritised by the consortium researchers and a panel of expert stakeholders from industry, government and regulatory bodies across Europe and the US. This gap analysis and consultation process has identified key research activities which will be addressed by the ITS. The full gap analysis, and a summary of the prioritised list of knowledge gaps will be published on the ITSNANO website (http://www.its-nano.eu/the-project/project-output). Major gaps have been identified which act as bottlenecks in the risk assessment process, for instance the lack of exposure information, technologies, and harmonised protocols available for nanomaterial detection and discrimination from environmental particles. Hazard assessment also faces the same key necessity for validated, harmonised and innovative methods, with a focus on the identification of long term effects, susceptibility and/or compromised tissues, and repeated, low dose administrations. In addition, numerous studies have addressed the issues related to inhaled nanomaterials, particularly in occupational settings, while little information is currently available on the hazards connected to ingestion or dermal contact, which may be more related to consumer exposure. In areas where the hazard is well characterised (e.g. inhalation), it is important to now move towards implementing the translation of research activities that will result in appropriate risk assessment and regulation. Finally, to fully address the complexity resulting from mixtures of physicochemical properties of nanomaterials, new and currently available risk assessment methodologies should be tested and validated using realistic exposure scenarios to fully evaluate their functionalities and limitations. This information can also be used to help refine and limit the physicochemical requirements for hazard studies to make them more economically viable in future. The ITS is now being designed to describe a research trajectory aimed at addressing the knowledge gaps and taking steps to greatly reduce the amount of uncertainty affecting this area of research. The ITS will be a fluid document which can be adapted as new information emerges and the current knowledge gaps are filled, and will provide a direction for new research to meet the increasing demands for risk assessment of nanomaterials. A further, large-scale consultation will take place both on-line between January and March 2013 and at a conference on 21-22 March 2013, in Venice. To get involved in the consultation process please contact info@its-nano.eu. Dominique Balharry, Stefano Pozzi Mucelli, Vicki Stone

Intellectual Property & Legal

Nanothechnology and Patents So it’s 2013 and we still can’t travel to the moon via a carbon nanotube elevator. That said, our slow progress towards a brave, new nano-world does have its compensations; at least we don’t live in constant fear of self-replicating nanobots

But while the rate and scale of the commercialization of nanotechnology activities to date has been disappointing, there is evidence to suggest that the global research effort, supported by increasing year-on-year public and private investment, is beginning to pay dividends. In short, I’m confident that we will be witnessing significant growth in this sector in the coming years. As would be expected with any significant research and investment programme, the number of nanotech patent applications has increased dramatically over the past decade. Indeed the huge increase in patent filings to protect nanotech activities and products has obliged patent offices throughout the world to alter the way in which these applications are processed. For example, the European Patent Office has introduced the “B82Y” tag to classify subject matter in the area of nanotechnology. Similarly, the US Patent Office has also introduced a classification specific to nanotech (Class: 977), as has the Japanese Patent Office (Class: ZNM). However, whilst the new classes will certainly provide a means for patent offices to improve their ability to categorize, track, trace and search nanotech patents, the multidisciplinary nature of nanotechnology still presents examiners at the patent offices with a number of challenges. Nanotech patent applications are assigned to examiners with appropriate levels of expertise. However, as applications typically span multiple scientific and engineering fields, it is unlikely that any individual examiner has sufficient knowledge to assess the true potential of a nanotech application. 70 success through nanomaterials

Coupled with the fact that most patent offices are stretched to capacity, there is a very real risk that nanotech patents will be granted when they should not be. Consequently, patents granted in the coming years are likely to be unenforceable. The nature of the patent system is such that the validity of these patents is unlikely to be tested until the patentee initiates court action against an “infringer”. In many cases, the patentee will be left with an invalid patent and a hefty bill. Conversely, applicants may find it difficult to obtain grant of an application in the first place because of the examiner’s inability to understand the technology. While nanotechnologies have been slow to reach the global market, there has been a steady accumulation of around 800 consumer-focused products in sectors such as Electronics & Computing, Automotive, Appliances, Food & Beverage and Health & Fitness. The resultant increase in patents applications will no doubt pose significant issues for patent proprietors in the nanotech area in the coming years, both in terms of engaging with examiners at the patent offices to obtain grant of their patents, and the subsequent enforcement of their patents.

Potter Clarkson What’s the point of a patent? Richard Bassett of Potter Clarkson explains

What’s the point of a patent? Many people might assume that patents are just used by big companies to threaten their competitors. They can be, in some cases. However, there are two less well-known uses of patents, plus a third one that has just come into being. The first two are to help to get good products to the market and the third is to enjoy a lower rate of corporation tax. Most university departments do not have the resources to commercialize their ideas, i.e. refine the design into a marketable product, manufacture it and distribute it. They need a company to do that. But what’s the incentive for the company to invest in that development and infrastructure? The company will want to make a profit, and they will want their investment to be protected from copycats. In other words, they need the product to have some intellectual property covering it, preferably a patent. Relying on know-how is all very well, but it does not protect them against reverse engineering, and employees can leave at any time, taking their knowledge with them. Proving that the employee used that confidential knowledge to help a competitor later can be difficult and expensive. A patent, which should provide a clear technical definition of the scope of the monopoly, is harder to argue with.

earlier company’s patents? Often, it is not enough to offer a royalty. But, if the newcomer has some patented technology of its own that is attractive to the other company, then a deal is much more likely to be struck, with each company licensing the other. So, the new company has not yet used the patent to keep its future competitors off the grass, but rather it has used the patent to give itself the freedom to make and sell the product in the first place.

So, if the university has a patent (or at least the prospect of a patent) that defines and protects the technology, it can turn an interesting academic discovery into an invention that makes a difference to people’s lives. And the licensing income for the university will be a welcome bonus.

So, those are three reasons to have a patent that might not have occurred to you. If you want to get a patent, find a good and commerciallyaware patent attorney to help you. And keep the invention secret in the meantime.

Turning to SMEs, their plans to commercialise their ideas can sometimes be threatened by patents held by a longer-established company in the field. How can they get freedom to work in that area, with a licence to the

Finally, the UK government has introduced a scheme called Patent Box, effective from April 2013. Briefly, it offers the prospect of the income from a patented product being taxed at 10% instead of the current 22%. The patent should still be intended to protect the product from competition, but the tax break provides an additional reason to get it patented.

Keller and Heckman

LLP

Technology Transfer and Nanotechnology A Balanced Policy Approach

Nanotechnology is a broad technical platform that is fueling our next generation manufacturing capabilities. In addition to size range, observed properties and phenomena (effects) are highly relevant to characterizing technology developments as innovations based on nanotechnology. Keller and Heckman thinks that the payoff for the public sector in commercialization of products that are enabled or enhanced by nanotechnologies is clear: new companies, new jobs, and better products. Nanomaterials that are rationally designed will change the landscape in biotechnology and cancer treatment, water purification, and energy development. Keller and Heckman views nanotechnology as a logical progression in the manufacturing continuum. Nanotechnology is not a single industry or method, or a group of particular materials or products. Nanotechnology is an innovation tool in commercial value chains that include: n Electronics, telecommunications, and the semiconductor industry (where the push to create smaller, faster, and more efficient microprocessors heralded the creation of circuitry less than 100 nanometers in size); n aerospace, defense, and national security; n energy and automotive; n plastics and ceramics; n forest and paper products; n food and food packaging; n pharmaceuticals, biomedicine, and biotechnology; n environmental remediation; and n clothing and personal care. Advancing innovation and public confidence in the commercial introduction of nanotechnology across these sectors has led to early public engagement and the development of strategies for managing the technology through standards and regulations. Fundamental vocabulary and best practices are emerging from ISO and in Europe for the Community’s use, and common systems of cataloging and naming products also are under consideration. As the relevant commercial applications are highly diverse, a single set of requirements to manage all nanotechnology is impractical. Keller and Heckman’s experience is that, if and when risks of emerging technologies are identified, they can

72 success through nanomaterials

be effectively managed in the application specific frameworks of existing statutes and regulations. Like other emerging technology platforms, nanotechnology faces opportunities and challenges in moving from the research lab to the manufacturing floor. As a participant in technology transfer – the process of advancing to high-volume production – Keller and Heckman is engaged in the careful study and management of product design; reliability and quality; process design and control; worker, consumer, and environmental protection; and supply chain management. A great peril in that process is the “Valley of Death,” a figurative desert filled with the skeletons of cash-starved innovations that failed to achieve commercial viability, irrespective of safety or function. Support for promising inventions in nanotechnology is tighter than ever, while the typical timeframe to nourish an innovation beyond the lab into patenting, prototyping, proof of concept, and on the path toward commercialization is ten to fifteen years. A balanced and integrated policy approach is an important consideration for businesses using nanotechnology, to be competitive domestically and internationally. The involvement of governments and other institutions also is essential, to ensure that scientific and technological developments are accessible to a wider range of users who can then further develop the technology. The diversity of nanotechnology offers exciting match up opportunities with the commercial manufacturing strengths of Europe and its regions. Keller and Heckman offers legal counseling to help address the range of considerations associated with using nanotechnology in commercial applications. The Firm brings a multidisciplinary skill set to bear to help its clients where law, science, technology, and manufacturing intersect.

Harris & Harris Group Harris & Harris Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:TINY) is a publicly traded venture capital firm that since 2002 has invested exclusively in nanotechnology and microsystems, what we call TINY technology. During this time, we have invested approximately $150 million in __ companies. We are an early-stage investor, and historically, in 70 percent of our investments, we are the first institutional investor or part of the first institutional syndicate of investors.

This demand cannot be adequately met with conventional methods of manufacturing, generation, mining or harvesting. Biological pathways are becoming economically viable and ecologically preferable for production, utilization, and disposal/remediation.

Nanotechnology addresses megatrends, and this is why it is an important investment thesis. The three megatrends that we see nanotechnology addressing are energy, healthcare and electronics. Already, our energy and healthcare investments have demonstrated positive returns, while our investment in electronics has lagged.

These three macro-trends stand to impact and to provide opportunities in multiple industries, including healthcare, chemical, bioprocessing, water, agriculture, industrial biotech, food and nutrition and energy. These industries will require new technology enabled at the nanoscale to remain competitive. These new technologies will increasingly arise from multi-disciplinary expertise in areas as diverse as biology, chemistry, materials science, electronics, computer science, physics, mathematics and engineering.

We believe 1980-2000 was a period of nanotechnology gestation. We believe 2001-2011 was the first decade of real nanotechnology commercialization. We believe the next two decades show tremendous promise for transformative nanotechnology enabled companies to bring disruptive products to the markets. As we look forward to the next decade of investing, we are most excited by the potential of nanoscale-enabled breakthroughs in life science applications. We are living through an unprecedented rate of change in our understanding of biological systems and the ability to manipulate the fundamental building blocks of nature. Novel, rapidly maturing discovery, characterization, analysis, control and manufacturing techniques have profound impact on life sciences and related industries. Trends generating disruptive investment opportunities include: n Healthcare budgets are out of balance globally, with aging population jeopardizing the financial viability of the leading economies of the world. Life science innovations in diagnostics, treatment and monitoring disease must simultaneously reduce cost and improve the quality of life; n The ubiquity of data and the Internet both stationary and, increasingly, mobile. For the â&#x20AC;&#x153;always onâ&#x20AC;? society, handheld devices become a natural access point for communication and data sharing between healthcare service providers and their patients. Soon, they will be acting as diagnostic and treatment companions too; n Continuing growth in population and global improvements in the quality of life keep driving demand for raw materials, water, food and energy.

We believe the convergence of these three macro-trends, with both the industries that stand to be impacted and the growing trend towards multi-disciplinary expertise, provide a unique investment opportunity in multi-dimensional life science innovations, including â&#x20AC;&#x201C;omics, 3-D biology, nanofabrication, nanofluidics, biosensing, bioelectronics, big data and wireless, bioimaging, molecular engineering and synthetic biology. n As we look forward over the coming decades, we believe corporate partnerships are going to become increasingly important. Facing a depleting pool of acquisition targets and the necessity to supplement their downsized internal R&D, large corporations are actively stepping into the venture game. A combination of 1) rapid development capabilities of small companies, and 2) manufacturing expertise and channel access of large corporations has become exceedingly powerful. For a venture investor and a start-up company, the early engagement with corporations opens doors for expertise, cost savings, market access and liquidity. n We believe the most effective partnerships will be those where the start-up companies bring new technology and ideas to the partnership and where the corporations bring access to scale and manufacturing and end markets. Active corporate involvement is becoming necessary, especially as technology becomes more complex, for proper scale and manufacturing and for efficient access to end markets. Both parties benefit from the expertise of the other party while maintaining their respective focused expertise. n Nanotechnology is poised to once again capture the imagination of corporations, investors and the markets. The need for innovation is critical in this time of economic stagnation. Nanotechnology, and specifically nanotechnology impacting the life sciences, is poised to provide this innovation to the marketplace.
