Our unique manufacturing technology is disruptive because it is a new paradigm. Unlike legacy methods, we make materials from the bottom-up. Our technology permits the crafting of nanomaterials with custom properties in a rapid, scalable manner to harness nanoscale-effects in bulk materials. This powerful new approach is the key for enabling not only nano-manufacturing, but also higher ZT with fewer processing steps, lower energy use, inexpensive equipment, and inexpensive commodity chemicals, presaging significant cost savings over the state-of-art. We actually started out by making kilograms of high ZT thermoelectrics with an off-the shelf <$100 domestic microwave oven in a matter of minutes.
