Pacific Fuel Cell Corp. ( PFC )
Pacific Fuel Cell has engineered a next-generation membrane electrode assembly for direct methanol and proton exchange membrane fuel cells. The MEA is the heart of a fuel cell and is critical for efficiently generating electricity. What is unique about the companys next-generation MEA technology?The unique feature of Pacific Fuel Cells MEA is its use of carbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes are great electron conductors and electrochemically stable. They can also have high surface area and provides many advantages over previous MEA technologies.One significant problem with previous MEA technology is the quantities of precious metals required and their associated high cost (e.g., platinum currently is over $900 US dollars/per ounce). In previous MEA technologies, platinum is deposited on carbon black particles and the supported catalysts are then sprayed or brushed onto the carbon paper. However, this process is not ideal and leaves many of the expensive platinum particles not fully utilized in the electricity making process. Pacific Fuel Cell’s scientists have solved the problem.

Research at Intel
Address: Santa Clara
Silicon manufacturing technology is now able to shrink critical dimensions of structures down to scales well below 100 nanometers (roughly the width of the influenza virus). These nanostructures are too small to see, even with the most sophisticated imaging equipment. This presents a challenge for Intel engineers who manually inspect microprocessors to identify which nanostructures are defective, so that repairs can be made.
Silicon nanostructures are difficult to see for two reasons: First, the imaging tools used to visualize the nanostructures are not able to resolve them in great detail, so the images are very low-resolution. Secondly, most tools, once they zoom in far, provide very weak signals and add a lot of “noise” to the image-electric noise from amplification, and imaging noise created by the nature of the process being used to generate the image. Viewing these images is analogous to looking through a textured bathroom window pane at a frosted-glass object; the image is blurry and obscured by reflections.

Currently the exciting new field is nanotechnology. Governments are investing heavily in research and development and you can attend at least one conference a week with nano in its title. At one of these conferences a few years ago, the plenary speaker announced that nano particles have reached commercialization and that sales exceeded $20 million in the past year. Of course they ignored that the fact that carbon black sales exceed $4 billion and precipitated silica sales exceed those of carbon black. They also ignored the many, many other fine particle products that go into almost every conceivable materials application.

A typical nanoviricides drug is designed like a chemical missile. It has a number of recognition “ligands” on its surface, that are specific to a single type of virus, say HIV. They are like the GPS on a directed missile. They will identify the enemy and attach to specific “landing sites” on the enemy target.The nanoviricides drug, after landing, spreads itself all over the virus particle, and thus completely neutralizes and disables the virus particle from binding to its target, a human cell.
