Chrysalix announces three investments: Cyrium, SiM Composites, and Ardica
- Cyrium Technologies, which is using so-called "quantum dots" (we've discussed before in context with another company) in GaAs photovoltaic applications
- SiM Composites, which the Chrysalix release describes as "creating unprecedented proton exchange materials based upon multifunctional silica and polymer." Mike Walkinshaw of Chrysalix is quoted as predicting that,
"We expect to see SiM's membranes revolutionize many proton exchange membrane markets due to their improved performance and lower cost. Their technology could have a significant impact on fuel cells for stationary and automotive applications as well as membranes for water desalination."
- Ardica Technologies, which is developing simple micro fuel cells for consumer products.
