Texas State plans online nanotech magazine

Austin Business Journal (10/17/2003)

San Marcos-based Texas State University plans to issue an online magazine early next year targeting scientists and other professionals in the nanotechnology field.

The first issue of NanoExpress online magazine is set to include a profile of Tsui Nai Mei, the intellectual property manager of Motorola Inc.'s Austin-based Semiconductor Production Sector, according to Texas State [SIC].

The Web-based publication will feature information on applications and business news in nanotechnology. Nanotechnology includes processes and materials studied at the nanometer level, 50,000 times smaller than the human hair.

NanoExpress will focus on business and job creation through breakthroughs in nanotechnology. The first issue also includes an article on short-term commercialization opportunities in nanotechnology.

Schaumburg, Ill.-based Motorola [NYSE: MOT] specializes in wireless, automotive and broadband communications. The SPS division employs 6,600 people in Austin.

The Nanoparticles Application Center at Texas State will publish the online magazine. The center works to advance the role of nanotechnology in science, technology, industry, the economy and society throughout Texas and the nation, according to the university, formerly called Southwest Texas State University.
