Company Profile


AQM is focused on the commercialization of non-toxic functional nanomaterials and their chemical precursors. Our expertise focuses on developing methods for preparing Group 14 (e.g., Silicon, Carbon and Germanium) and metal (e.g., Gold, Silver and alloys) nanomaterials for applications involving unique properties. Our business model is to design, synthesize, functionalize, manufacture and integrate custom nanomaterials for our clients. Nanoparticles and quantum dots are of considerable interest because of their size-dependent optical, electronic, mechanical, chemical and magnetic properties. The AQM synthesis approach is proven, scalable and can provide tangible quantities of oxide-embedded as well as freestanding materials of controlled size, narrow size distributions and tailored composition.

These properties enable their use in a wide range of applications including, but not limited to tracer particles, batteries, printable electronics, displays, sensing, photovoltaics, and fluorophores for biological imaging.

Product Name:
Silicon based nanomaterials and quantum dots
AQM designs customized silicon based nanomaterials (from 2 to 150 nm) for use as non-toxic environmental, industrial and medical tracers. These materials can be applied in solution, as inks or as coatings and exhibit specific optical, chemical, electrical or magnetic properties. Our nanomaterials can be tailored to produce photoluminescence that spans the visible and near-IR spectral regions.

Our proprietary preparative and functionalization methods provide AQM with unique access to high purity silicon nanocrystals of unsurpassed quality with unique properties. As a result, we have the ability to design high-performance silicon-based functional nanoprobes, sensors and reagents for biological analysis, detection and disease treatment.

Our precursor chemicals can also be used as an electron beam resist for semiconductor lithography.
