Funding for ONAP was included in the $10 million of new funding that was provided to the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology (OCAST) for the current year.Oklahoma Nano Legislation
The Alliance Oct. 2nd announced a call for white papers to encourage Oklahoma companies and researchers to convey their interest in applying nanotechnology processes to commercial products. White papers are due Oct. 30th.
Shortly, interested companies will be invited to submit proposals for funding of projects that will result in commercialization using nanotechnology.
A total of $1,200,000 is being made available to fund highest ranked proposals.

Fields of application for OAD platform technologies include biostable implants, vectored drug delivery, and functional biosensors/switches. Using magnetic properties, NanoBioMagnetics moves nanoparticles within the human body. It has been used successfully to vibrate the inner ear, improving hearing and has potential to move medicines directly to ailing cells. NBMI's nanoparticle technology was developed by NBMI, with applications development subcontracted to healthcare organizations and institutions.

XetaComp - Edmond A wholly-owned subsidiary of NanoBioMagnetics, XetaComp produces custom nanomaterials for commercial and research applications. XetaComp has the capacity to produce nanomaterials in powder or dispersion forms. The technology is based on an aerosol process that provides greater flexibility in the preparation of metal and mixed metal oxides, doped metal oxides, and specialty coated or encapsulated nanomaterials. For more information on XetaComp, www.xetacomp.comOklahoma Nano Companies
Ekips has developed the Breathmeter which measures biomarker molecules in exhaled breath with a sensor that uses a mid-infrared laser chip similar to the laser chips used in commercial DVD players. Future Breathmeter applications include asthma therapy monitoring, kidney function monitoring, and cancer detection. www.breathmeter.com
Colossus Nano Batteries - TulsaColossus Nano Batteries won the Oklahoma graduate student business plan competition by proposing to produce the world's smallest battery utilizing technology developed from research conducted at the University of Tulsa by Dr. Dale Teeters. Dr. Teeters’ nano batteries are so small that 242 of them can be laid side by side across the width of a human hair.
Nomadics - Stillwater
Nomadics is a research and development company focused on homeland security and force protection. Research and development efforts encompass sensing technologies and instrumentation, nanotechnology, VLSI Photonics and further advancement of the biological and medical frontiers. http://www.nomadics.com
Arc Outdoors sells nano enhanced clothing to places like Bass Pro Shop and Cabella’s. Numerous other nano enhanced products are in their developmental stages. www.arcoutdoors.com
ConocoPhillips – Bartlesville/ Ponca City
ConocoPhillips has supported the Southwest Nano Technologies research and is very involved in Nano research of its own.
WON Laboratories - Norman
WON Laboratories is an emerging nano company that has developed Nano Cotton a water repellent, air breathable fabric.
Imation Enterprises makes magnetic tapes used to back up computers. Imation utilizes iron nano particles as a part of the substrate of their magnetic tapes. A process is used to get the nano particles to line up and lay flat so that a coating can be applied over them to create a very flat magnetic surface on a flexible film. www.imation.com
This market will require anywhere from 800,000 to two million new jobs.
Most of these workers will require at least two year postsecondary degrees.Nano Workforce Trends
OSU- Okmulgee is developing a
Nano Technician Training
program that will be an added
certification to the Electrical
Engineering Associates program.Nano Technician Training
The Oklahoma Department of Career and Technical Education is actively engaged in benchmarking nano training and is working cooperatively with OSU-Okmulgee and others on a federal grant to develop the Oklahoma Nanotechnology Education Initiative.Nano Technician Training
Currently the Regents of Higher
Education are funding $500,000
to support ongoing nano positions
The facility will be staffed with 40 faculty in these emerging fields.
The University of Tulsa is currently seeking to add additional faculty in Nanotechnology.OSU/Tulsa
The Oklahoma Nanotechnology Initiative maintains a website www.oknano.com to serve as a clearinghouse of information about the state of nanotechnology in Oklahoma.Oklahoma Nano Net & ONI
Create a statewide awareness of the emerging nanotechnology industry and its potential impact on the state
Promote Oklahoma and its resources as a valuable site for nanotechnology-related industry location
Serve as a clearinghouse of information on nanotechnology to the academic, financial, industrial, and business communities.
