NanoAmor: Nanopowders & Dispersions for Nanotechnology

Nanostructured & Amorphous Materials Inc. (NanoAmor) was founded in Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA, in September 2001. We are a leading nanomaterials company involved in all aspects of the business: manufacturing, research and development, processing, supplying and marketing of nanostructured materials and their dispersions. Among our many thousands of customers, we list as our clients the leaders in nanotechnology:

  1. The world's most technologically innovative corporate giants, including BASF, Boeing, Bose, Bridgestone, Dow, Exxon MobilFord, GE, GM, Honeywell, HP, IBM, Intel, Philips, PPG, Samsung, SONY and Toshiba.
  2. Most of the world's research universities, including elite institutions such as Brown, Caltech, Cornell, ETH, Harvard, John Hopkins, Imperial College, MIT, Oxford, Penn State, Princeton, Purdue, Rice, UCLA and UCSD.
  3. National laboratories and research institutes, including the Army Research Laboratory, Brookhaven, EPA, Lawrence Berkeley, Los Alamos, NASANaval Research Laboratory, NIOSH, NIST and Pacific Northwest.
  4. Specialized companies in fields as diverse as aerospace (ATK Propulsion, GKN Plc., Israel Aircraft Industries, Qinetiq, etc.), biomedical (Agave Biosystems, Aventis Pharmaceuticals, Biospectrum, Edge Biosystems, etc.), energy (Azure Energy, General Atomics, Hydro, IAP Research, etc.), nanotechnology (NanoFilm, Nanohmics, NanoHorizons, NanoLab, NanoMix, Nanosys, etc.) and semiconductors (Henkel, Lam Research, OmegaPiezo, PARC, etc.).


Introduction to Nanotechnology and our Nanomaterials


Nanostructured materials have dimensions typically ranging from 1 to 100 nm (where 10 angstrom = 1 nm =1/1000 micrometer). They can be classified into the following dimensional types:

  • Zero dimensional (0D): nanospherical particles.
  • One dimensional (1D): nanorods, nanowires and nanotubes. 
  • Two dimensional (2D): nanoflakes, nanodiscs and nanofilms.
  • Three dimensional (3D): bulk nanostructured materials, consisting of nanometer-sized grains or nanoporous particles.

In nanostructured materials, the proportion of atoms in the grain boundaries or particle surfaces can be equivalent to those inside the grain or particle interiors, these novel types of nanomaterials exhibit properties and performance such as larger specific surface area and dangling bonds or excessive surface energy level or chemical and physic activities that can be very different than those of conventional microsize materials with larger particle or grain sizes. Such dimension is near to some of critical points of magnetic, optical, superconductivity, etc.. These unique properties and performance benefits include, but are not limited to:

  • Better radiation absorption or shielding.
  • Better interface connection or binding (in filler/polymer nanocomposites).
  • High sensitivity for sensor devices.
  • Transparent pigments (when the filler size is less than 1/4 to 1/2 of the wavelength of the radiation light)
  • Higher storage capacity of energy such as electrons, solar light, and hydrogen gas.
  • High density and high speed information storage and transport.
  • Conductive Carbon Nanofibe or Oxides,
  • High hardness and good conductive such as Ag-based and Cu-based nanocrystalline alloys.
  • High strength and high-ductility nanocrystalline ceramics parts, which can be used for cutting, grinding and more.
  • High reaction rates, especially useful for catalysts and waste treatment.
  • Sintering additives.
  • Low melting packaging materials.
  • High dielectronic ceramic oxides...

Because of these unique properties, nanostructured materials can have a wide variety of applications in Composites, Coating, Particle Film devices, Catalyst, Biomedical, Electronic, Optical, Magnetic and Energy Industries.
