Products
  • NanoWeb - NanoWeb is a transparent conductor composed of a metal mesh that can be fabricated onto a glass or plastic surface. The mesh can be made from silver, aluminum, platinum, copper, nickel, and other highly conductive metals, allowing energy to pass through an open area surface. The mesh is invisible to the human eye.
  • metaAIR - metaAIR is a piece of eyewear purposely designed to protect pilots and those in aviation fro laser glares.
  • metaOPTIX - Metamaterial Technologies' metaOPTIX are holographic thin film notch filters.
  • Glucowise - Glucowise is a non-invasive glucose monitor that is under development.
