Isonics Corp. is focused on leading the industry of isotopically engineered materials and is committed to developing next-generation technology for the homeland security and semiconductor markets. The company is mainly focused on developing and marketing products based on isotopes for use in the energy, medical research, diagnostic, pharmaceutical, semiconductor, and homeland security industries.
Many businesses in an array of industries are using isotopes to enhance existing materials by improving their performance and/or efficiency. An isotope is derived from a naturally-occurring element that has the same number of protons, but a different number of neutrons. The isotopes differ from the original element by mass, atomic diameter, cross-section, spin and magnetic characteristics making them advantageous for many commercial applications.
Isonics is known as a world leader in isotopically engineered materials and has developed silicon-28, which is used in the production of wafers for computer chips. Silicon-28 has higher thermal conductivity that helps improve the speed and performance of high-end microprocessors. Isonics also manufactures silicon-on-insulator wafers. These wafers are used for micro electro-mechanical systems applications, optical switches and high performance IC applications.
