Forward-Looking Statements

Third-Order Nanotechnologies, Inc.

“Third-Order believes that its electro-optic polymer is a platform technology that could hold the same position for photonics that silicon holds for electronics.”
-Hal Bennett, CEO

2000: NRO funds “Black Box” materials development 2002: DARPA funds basic materials development 2004: Company reverse merges into public shell 2005: Technology verified by University of Arizona 2006: Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovation Of The Year

Our Technology

Third-Order’s ring locked perkinamine molecule is a radical departure from the CLD (Cheng-Larry Dalton) approach that has been pursued for over half a century. Third-Order’s dual bond perkinamine chemistry solves the stability problem by creating a stronger structure than the single bonded CLD approach.

Sequential Unfolding of Products

High Speed Modulator

Optical Internet Chips



The Killer App

High Speed Modulator
Increasing demand for high speed modulators is not being met by current Lithium Niobate technology We intend to offer polymer modulator chips Total modulator market predicted to be 2.65B by 2014 (Triple Play Communications)
Annualized revenue to Third-Order is anticipated to be $250M by 2014

All-Optical Internet
Provides a thousand-fold increase in bandwidth at one tenth the cost of current approaches We intend to offer HD WDM and Optical Router photonic chips We estimate all-optical Internet equipment market to grow to $30B/year
Potential annualized revenue to Third-Order of $5B

All-Optical Internet (cont’d)

Internet 2.0 “Today’s” Internet
World Wide Web Music-On-Demand Internet Telephony

Internet 3.0 – The Next Generation
“The All-Optical Internet”
HD Videoconferencing HD Video-On-Demand Virtual Reality Games

Military/Homeland Securtiy
Advanced pattern recognition capabilities
Terrorist identification Friend or foe recognition Smart weapons target recognition Advanced optical encryption

We intend to offer optical computing photonic chips
Potential annualized revenue to Third-Order of $4B


Higher quality, lower power and lower manufacturing than LCDs Applications include cell phones, laptops, desktop computers, HDTV and automotive We intend to offer display architectures and materials LCDs are currently a $63B market Potential annualized revenue to Third-Order of $6B

The Killer App

At the time Intel was founded they were focused on producing memory chips, they did not anticipate that they would create and dominate the microprocessor business.
“We don’t know what the killer app for this technology is…”
