Smart Imaging Technologies conducted Nanodispersion Analysis Workshop

Houston, TX, August 15, 2005. Smart Imaging Technologies Co. has recently conducted discussion workshop dedicated to methods of characterization and analysis of dispersion in nano-dispersed systems. Workshop participants included scientists from leading research organization as well as representatives of nanotechnology standardization groups from ASTM.

Within this workshop hosted by The Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology at Rice University, participants discussed the validity, applicability and relative importance of the measurement methods that may be applied to characterization of spatial dispersion in dispersed nano-phase systems such as nanocomposites, solutions, and other materials.

“Dispersion of nanomaterials is the key issue for development of nanocomposites, one of the most promising commercial applications of nanotechnology that delivers new phenomenal material properties.” – said Vitali Khvatkov, Founder of the Company. “Commercialization process demands quality control, metrology, and standardization that require common characterization methods that are not yet available. This workshop is our contribution to the effort of the nanotechnology community to establish common standards. We will continue to work with our research, industry and service partners to accelerate development of commercial applications and services in the nanotech area”.

Final workshop materials are available from the company website
