Mtech TAP incubator company Pixelligent Technologies was awarded an $8.2 million project by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) through their Technology Innovation Program (TIP) for the Development and Scale-Up of Nanocomposites.

A research joint venture led by Pixelligent Technologies LLC, partnering with Brewer Science Inc., is developing new processes and technologies to scale up the production of high-quality nanocomposites-nanocrystals dispersed in polymers-to create materials with enhanced performance and new functionality that cannot be provided by polymers or traditional composites. Their initial target applications are new materials for the optoelectronics and semiconductor industries.
