Nanomaterials

NanomaterialsNanomaterials have a wide variety of applications including biomedical R&D, composites, and energy storage. Luna is engaged in the production of nanoscaled materials such as carbon nanotubes, nanosheets like graphene, and carbon cage materials like fullerenes and Luna’s unique Trimetaspheres. Our nanomanufacturing facility has successfully designed, fabricated, and automated reactors for more continuous production of carbon nanomaterials. Luna also develops plasmonic nanometals (light absorbers, photothermal), quantum dots (fluorescence), magnetic nanoparticles, and bioinspired polymer nanoparticles.
