Sigma-Aldrich through its Aldrich Materials Science business, said it was distributing Nanosys-created silicon nanowires to the global scientific research community. According to Sigma-Aldrich the fabrication of nanowires is challenging, so the supply deal is intended to further foster the development of a variety of new high-technology applications that can continue to open up exciting end product markets.

"Architected and synthesized at the atomic level, our materials deliver exponential improvements in efficiency and performance," noted Jason Hartlove, CEO of Nanosys. "This new distribution agreement with Sigma-Aldrich puts our technology directly into the hands of researchers who are doing exciting work in labs around the world, driving the use of architected material solutions in a new generation of markets and applications."

Nanosys silicon nanowires, which demonstrate semiconductor properties, are comprised of single crystal silicon grown using the vapor liquid solid (VLS) process.
