Startup EnWireS, founded this year by an INAC researcher (who also happens to be a former INAC post-doc), is developing a breakthrough chemical process for making silicon nanowires. The startup plans to release its first products—innovative composite materials to boost the capacity and lifespan of lithium-ion batteries—in 2017. The materials will be more competitively-priced than the current international market leaders.
EnWireS is already providing labs with custom silicon nanowires for R&D use—the first service of its kind on the market.
EnWireS is currently located at INAC and has licensed three CEA patents. CEA Investissement is a founding shareholder.
