Holdings, Inc. (OTC BB: APNT) announced that it will showcase some of its
key nanotechnology advancements at nano tech 2010 held February 17-19 in Tokyo,
Japan at Tokyo Big Site. ANI will highlight its printed electronics, sensor
technology, and composites.
At its booth, ANI will demonstrate RFID antennas that have been inkjet printed
on paper and plastic using conductive copper ink. ANI will have a RFID testing
system set up at the booth such that nano tech 2010 attendees will have the
opportunity to test the RFID antennas for themselves.
Another interactive display will feature a highly sensitive sensing device
being developed for health monitoring via breath analysis. The components of
an individual’s breath can be considered a blue print of one’s health,
and can reveal ailments at a very early stage in a non-invasive manner. Breath
analysis has the potential to significantly reduce health care costs by identifying
potential health problems early.
CNT enhanced ballistic resistant fiberglass composite panels, CNT enhanced
epoxy and carbon fiber composites, and anti-static nylon created using carbon
nanotubes will be on display. ANI’s patent pending composite technology
results in materials with significantly improved properties tailored to particular
ANI will also be featured in the technical poster sessions. The two technologies
being highlighted are Carbal™, a nano engineering thermal management material
to improve reliability, efficiency and lifetime of Concentrator Photovoltaic
(CPV) cells, and a copper nanoparticle paste as a low cost replacement for solders
in hybrid electric vehicle power electronics that enables higher system operating
temperatures, improved device reliability, and reduced thermo-mechanical stress
to dies and devices during thermal cycling.
The International Nanotechnology Exhibition and Conference nano tech 2010 is
the largest of its kind in the world with 50,000 participants anticipated. For
