Sept. 18, 2002 — Eikos Inc., a Franklin, Mass., polymer and nanotube-based materials developer, announced a strategic and equity investment from JFC Technologies for an undisclosed amount. The investment is part of an ongoing first round of funding.
The company expects to close the round within the next four months, according to David Arthur, chief operating officer. The strategy, he said, is to work with JFC on polymer projects to free up company resources for nanotube-related projects.
Among current goals are commercializing a line of transparent conductive inks for touch screens, liquid crystal displays, solar cells and other applications. Eikos was founded in 1996.
