In 2013, OneD Material acquired Nanosys’ nanowire technologies and Palo Alto R&D activities.

Today, OneD Material operates a SiNANOde® pilot production to support the development of advanced electrochemical cells and the initial production of its technology licensees.

Building upon over a decade of R&D, Dr. Yimin Zhu, OneD material’s CTO, leads a team that continues to improve the SiNANOde® technology and supports customers producing advanced energy storage solutions for various markets.

OneD Material engages with leading material suppliers, battery makers, and their customers to adapt the technology and its production to meet their technical and business needs. 

Collaborating with customers in US, Europe and Asia, OneD Material’s joint R&D, technology transfer and license agreements are designed to optimize and expand the SiNANOde® production processes. The licensed manufacturing process is the world’s first scalable production of silicon nanowires for Lithium-ion batteries.

OneD Material’s patent portfolio includes over 300 patents and patent applications covering many nanowire inventions ranging from basic structures to processes. In addition to inventions developed by Nanosys during the prior decade and by OneD Material more recently, the portfolio also includes inventions from leading scientists at Harvard University, University of California at Berkeley, University of Pennsylvania and other top universities (view patents).

OneD Material was co-founded by Invention Capital Partners and a group of private investors, and is located at 2625 Hanover Street, Palo Alto, CA 94304.
