Business description: Optiva has created a new class of self-assembling nanomaterials that will fundamentally impact a wide range of applications and every day products. Optiva's technology provides the ability to simply print highly-ordered thin crystal film (TCF™) structures on almost any surface. These film structures are designed to replace conventional components, simplify product design and manufacturing, and improve performance while greatly reducing overall cost. In addition, as with any new breakthrough in material development, Optiva TCF™ allows the creation of new products not possible before. The first market to deploy Optiva's disruptive technology is the $32 billion flat panel display industry. By replacing traditional, complex optical film laminations, Optiva TCF™ polarizers, retarders, and enhancement films allow manufacturers to build thinner, more durable and better looking displays.
