Our Company

NanoSonic specializes in the design and manufacture of innovative materials, especially new materials that are currently unavailable in the commercial market. We design and manufacture materials with novel engineering behaviors with the overall goal to develop environmentally benign processes and techniques for these new materials.  We have also developed new molecular self-assembly processes that allow the controlled synthesis of material structure at the nanometer level.
Our award-winning, high-tech company was founded in 1998 by Richard Claus, Ph.D., an expert in advanced materials and structures who won the Optical Engineering Society’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2002. In 2006, NanoSonic was ranked as the overall leader in a 13-state study of the strength of the nanotechnology industry. With 18 patents granted, we were also named to NASA’s Nano50.
NanoSonic’s staff is comprised of more than 25 research scientists, engineers, chemists, designers and fabricators. We work with all different sizes and types of companies and organizations, and clients including NASA, the U.S. Department of Defense and the Department of Transportation. Our work covers the entire range of product development from research, design and development, to manufacturing and commercialization. Located in Giles County, Virginia, NanoSonic is a privately held Delaware C Corporation.
