Unidym, a majority-owned subsidiary of Arrowhead Research Corporation (NASDAQ: ARWR), is a leader in the manufacture and application of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), a novel material with extraordinary electrical, mechanical, chemical, and thermal properties. Unidym provides CNT-enabled products, specialized CNT materials, and intellectual property to a wide range of customers and business partners.
Building directly on the work of the late Dr. Richard Smalley, the Nobel Prize winning pioneer of carbon nanotubes, and Distinguished Professor George Grñíer at UCLA, Unidym has created one of the most experienced teams in CNT science and the most expansive intellectual property portfolio in the CNT industry. Merging the experience and strengths of Carbon Nanotechnologies (CNI), Unidym has over 150 foundational patents and patent applications covering nearly every aspect of CNTs. More about Dr. Smalley
Unidym is focused on the electronics industry where its initial product is a transparent electrode for touch screens, flat panel displays, solar cells, and solid state lighting. Unidym is developing thin film transistors for printable electronics and the emerging flexible display market. Additionally, Unidym has developed a range of proprietary CNTs for conductive polymers, structural reinforcement materials, and anti-static films.
