The S&P Kensho Extended Nanotechnology Index (KNANOXN), a subsector index within the S&P Kensho New Economy Index Series, is designed to measure the performance of U.S. listed securities, including depositary receipts, of companies involved in the nanotechnology industry. The Index Provider defines nanotechnology as the creation and/or manipulation of matter at the molecular (or smaller) level. The Index includes companies that produce nanomaterials or provide systems, products and services that allow for construction, measurement, simulation or manipulation of nanomaterials. One cannot directly invest in an index.
The index offers exposure to companies involved in the creation and/or manipulation of matter at the molecular (or smaller) level, by providing one or more of the following four types of products or services:
- Fabrication and Manufacturing Processes: Devices, systems and/or processes allowing for construction and/or manipulation of matter at the molecular level as a part of the production process, which includes, but is not limited to, nano-bots and molecular self-assembly.
- Measurement and Simulation: Services simulating design of nanomaterials and products/services that contribute to measurement at the molecular level, which includes, but is not limited to, nanoelectromechanical systems.
- Materials: Outputs created from nanofabrication and manufacturing processes, which includes, but is not limited to, nano-textiles and nanoparticles.
- Delivery Systems: Systems enabling the delivery of nanomaterials to targeted locations, which includes, but is not limited to, engineered nanoparticles and nano-capsules.
