Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute (ONAMI)
World-class industry, academic and federal research institutions form the vibrant ONAMI network.
“ONAMI @ OSU” is putting nanotechnology to work.
ONAMI @ OSU includes the Corvallis-based Microproducts Breakthrough Institute (MBI), a collaboration with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory that commercializes new products. Housed in a building on Hewlett-Packard’s Corvallis campus, ONAMI @ OSU researchers are developing technologies in:
- Transparent electronics that can be printed on glass and plastics
- Tiny microreactors capable of super-fast, portable biodiesel production
- Lightweight cooling units for use by soldiers and haz-mat workers in high-heat conditions
- Automobile air conditioning systems that utilize waste engine heat
- Blood filters that are leading to portable kidney dialysis machines
