Applied NanoMaterials Inc., a provider of nanotechnology-based products, bared plans to produce and market new types of inorganic nanotubes for highly-sophisticated products such as advanced generation high-resolution flat panel displays and atomic force microscopes (AFMs).

According to the company, inorganic nanotubes are suitable materials for tomorrow's nano-electronic devices. In some instances, they can be used to replace silicon and thus can have many additional potential applications, including semiconductor devices, sensors, biosensors, and nano-motors.

Applied NanoMaterials' objective is to use nanotubes as components for flat panel displays. In response to limitations of existing technologies in terms of picture quality and cost, the company has developed a simple and inexpensive method to produce inorganic nanotubes that have better electrical properties than other new materials like carbon nanotubes.

"The unique properties of inorganic nanotubes open new horizons for applications in many areas, which cannot be realized by common carbon nanotubes," said Dr. Menachem Genut, president and CEO of Applied NanoMaterials. "We have proprietary means for modifying their electrical parameters from conductor to semiconductor and isolator states, which is ideal for numerous advanced electronic applications."
