Description: 

Unidym produces single-wall carbon nanotubes that are very strong and can transfer electricity, heat, and other forms of energy. Unidym is developing transparent electrodes and thin-film transistors based on carbon nanotubes, for applications in displays, solar cells, and lighting. In 2007 Carbon Nanotechnologies, Inc. (CNI) merged with Unidym (then a subsidiary of Arrowhead Research) and the combined company operated under the Unidym name. In 2011 Arrowhead sold Unidym to South Korea-based Wisepower Co., Ltd. in a deal that will help Unidym develop the necessary manufacturing and marketing resources to move into production. See the company profile for more information.
