Chemat has acquired the DAC digital surfacing technology business from DAC International.
March 9, 2011
Chemat Technology Inc. has acquired the DAC digital surfacing technology business from DAC International.
DAC was a pioneer of digital surfacing technology and made the first RxD digital generator during the year 2000.
This generator was used by major ophthalmic companies to make their first freeform lenses.

DAC International used many of their patented and proprietary precision engineering contact lens technologies to build
their RxD digital generators. The result of using these technologies is an extremely smooth digitally generated surface
which creates a base for cut-to-coat technology and also revolutionizes the fabrication of the hard to make specialty
lenses such as slab off/on.

Chemat Technology is a total sol gel company with a focus on developing technological solutions to the most challenging
industrial problems. Their technologies and products range from semiconductors to dental implants.
In the last ten years, Chemat has been developing, manufacturing and marketing a revolutionary spin antireflection
coating technology for the optical industry with initial awards from the Eye Institute of the National Institute of Health.
These inventions are of particular benefit to the small retail laboratories and to the medium sized wholesale laboratories.

Chemat will integrate this acquired digital surfacing technology with its own coating expertise to develop the next generation
of digital surfacing freeform technology at prices that are affordable to the small to medium sized optical laboratories.

Chemat will provide support for existing DAC Surfacing System customers as well as new customers with the assistance of DAC
trained technical personnel.

Lithium Ion Battery Powered Car
Feb. 3, 2011
To answer the question on which car is the first lithium ion battery powered car, most of people
may say GM Volt. Actually, the world's first lithium-ion car battery was in Mercedes S400
HYBRID Sedan. Other lithium-ion batteries have been used in prototype vehicles but the S400
has the first lithium-ion in a production vehicle. GM Volt is coincided as first mass production
sedan which employing lithium-ion battery. The compact lithium-ion battery is more powerful
than conventional car (nickel-metal hydride) batteries.

The all-electric version of the popular Ford Focus is set to be launched in late 2011. The 100
mile range, five door hatchback provides many features that make it an enticing EV package,
including higher speed charging, highly customizable displays, and liquid cooled/heated batteries.
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) has got a new business plan and eight new hybrid, plug-in hybrid
and full electric vehicles will be launched by 2015.

By the end of 2012, Toyota will launch 11 brand new and updated hybrid models.
Every car manufacturer has the plan and a lot more lithium ion batteries will be running around!
On January 25, President Barrack Obama spoke about the aim of putting 1 million electric vehicles
on the road by 2015.
Chemat has completed DOD SBIR Phase I project on developing more stable cathode material for
lithium-ion battery with improved cycle life and capacity retention. We have an on-going project
to develop low cost cathode material funded by DOE. A DOD SBIR Phase II project will start soon
on developing lithium air battery which has much larger theoretic energy density than that
of lithium-ion battery.

DOE's Steven Chu maintains conservative stance on fuel cells
Janunary 28, 2010
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced that it "is accepting applications for a
total of up to $74 million to support the research and development of clean, reliable fuel cells for
stationary and transportation applications." This relatively small number is not much of a
surprise, since the head of the DOE, Steven Chu, has previously made clear that he does not feel
that the "hydrogen economy" is the future of transportation and has slashed budgets accordingly.

Chu has slashed the DOE's budget for fuel-cell-vehicle development, including hydrogen-storage technologies, infrastructure,
and various demonstration projects, from what used to average hundreds of millions a year under the Bush Administration –
it was about $250 million annually in FY 2008 and FY 2009, and totaled $1.3 billion in the last 10 years –
to about $70 million in FY 2010.
However, the fact that the recently announced grants are for both "stationary and transportation applications" is
significant because Chu – and Lux Research – believe that stationary applications for fuel cells are much more promising
in the near term than fuel-cell vehicles. In a 2009 interview with MIT's Technology Review, Chu said, "I think that hydrogen
could be effectively a 'battery' in the sense that suppose you had a way of using excess electricity – let's say a nuclear
plant at night, or solar or wind excess capacity, and there was an efficient electrolysis way of turning that into hydrogen,
and then we have stationary fuel cells. It could effectively be a battery of sorts."

Lux Research believes that the best near-term opportunity for stationary fuel cells lies not as an enabler for hydrogen storage,
but to provide combined heat and power (CHP) in distributed applications. While there are still numerous hurdles to overcome for
fuel cell makers like Bloom Energy, Plug Power, and Nordic Power Systems that are seeking to sell into the embryonic CHP market –
high cost being first among them – CHP is still a better bet for significant adoption of fuel cells by 2015 than the ones Honda
and Toyota are making.

New Scientist Joint Chemat
November 16, 2010
Dr. Matthew Franzman has recently joined Chemat. Dr. Franzman earned his Ph.D from the University of Southern California
(USC) in chemistry. Previous to joining the research team at Chemat, Dr. Franzman developed novel scintillator materials during a
postdoctoral appointment at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
Dr. Franzman current focus is to develop novel scintillation material for Radiation Detection Synthesized by a Sol-Gel Method. Target application
application includes Positron Emission Tomography (PET) instrumentation.
Positron emission tomography (PET) is a nuclear medicine imaging technique which produces a three-dimensional image or picture of functional processes
in the body. PET market was $505 million in 2003 and tripled in 2008. The global positron emission tomography (PET) market is estimated to reach around
$6.3 billion in 2010 and to $10.3 Billion by 2015.
The approval of PET scanning reimbursement in the U.S. by the Medicare and Medicaid widened the opportunities for the major market participants and
increase the demand of the PET scanners among the various health care centers.
