Surrey says its NanoGrowth equipment yields carbon nanotubes at low temperatures.

Surrey NanoSystems, a 2006 spin-off from the University of Surrey, in England, has secured about $4.2 million in its second round of venture capital funding. Investors include Octopus Ventures, IP Group, and the university. Surrey says the funding will help it commercialize a low-temperature growth process for carbon nanotubes.
