2005 Metallic Nanopowder Technologies Technology Innovation of the Year


QuantumSphere is one of the leading pioneers in the field of nanoscale metals and alloys. Our company focus is on the production, validation and commercial use of these materials in a wide range of industries including energy, electronics, biomedicine, aerospace and defense.

We are currently looking to partner with universities and sponsor individual or group research through prototype phase using QSI-Nano™ metals in an effort to accelerate validation and commercialization of these advanced materials in consumer and industrial applications.

As a member of the academic community, you know how crucial it is to pursue ongoing research activities into technologies that hold strong promise. We are aware that funding for such activities is often limited and that academic/commercial partnerships are pivotal in making that promise a reality.

To that end, the company’s goal is to fund innovative research projects in nanotechnology that pertain to nanometals and their oxides. Catalytic, conductive, magnetic and anti-microbial applications that could ultimately result in end-use technical, industrial or consumer products are the focus of this grant.

This funding opportunity is open to graduate and postdoctoral students involved in full-time research in the University of California system, Caltech, Stanford, and USC during the 2006/07 academic year. A completed submission form, including approval from advising professor, is required.
  • Award Amount: Up to $100k
  • Funding Period: Nine Months
  • Deadline for Submission: August 1, 2006
  • Award Notification: October 1, 2006
