The motive driving Nanolog's research has been "what can we do with molecules that we can't do with silicon?"
Now, with over 15 years of dedicated research from leading molecular scientists, Nanolog has found results in areas such as harmonic generation, wavelength selective photo-sensitivity, activationless conduction, and charge storage.
This research has produced 12 US patents and over 70 peer reviewed papers in top publications like the Journal of American Chemical Society, Nature Nanotechnology, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
Audio & Consumer electronics
Nanolog's sales in the guitar pedal industry are due to the smoother distribution of harmonics produced by quantum tunneling compared to silicon and germanium devices. Our technology delivers vacuum tube-like performance in solid state electronics.
Now, we are looking to expand and partner with other companies to help bring these warm, rich, and organic tones to consumer electronics as a whole.
In 2020, over 2 billion speaker integrated products will be sold. Each speaker is powered by an analog circuit, which has the opportunity for enhanced performance through Nanolog Devices.
Nanolog Devices are also useful selective wavelength sensors.
Our technology is sensitive to light in ways unlike traditional sensors. By varying our molecular structures we can adjust detection to different wavelengths, facilitating detection over a narrow wavelength range.
Our current detection range is within 200 - 900 nm. Above 900 nm, we will reach tangible gains in near-infrared applications such as LIDAR and autonomous vehicles where silicon detectors have poor or zero sensitivity. At this higher wavelength range, there will also be great opportunities and possibilities for enhanced sensors in fibre optics.
The production process for Nanolog Devices™ can also create dynamic redox capacitors. These devices store charge in molecular orbitals without the ions, solvent, or counter-reaction required in conventional batteries.
Retention time is tunable by molecular parameters, and is much longer than that of today's capacitors and DRAM. This redox storage can also be greatly enhanced if mobile ions are present, i.e. in an open circuit.
This "slow capacitor" is a fundamentally new component, like our Nanolog Devices™, with potential applications in long retention RAM, "memristors", tunable retention time and magnitude, and on-chip energy storage.
