NEI Corporation announced today that it has introduced a transparent, micron-thick coating that provides both scratch resistance and easy to clean properties to surfaces. The waterborne SR100EC coating can be applied to plastics such as polycarbonate, PMMA, PET, polyurethane, epoxy, as well as metals such as stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, brass and chrome.
Agar Scientific, a leading supplier of microscopy accessories and consumables, has launched a new range of graphene oxide support films which have been developed in collaboration with Dr Neil Wilson, Microscopy Group, Physics Department at the University of Warwick.
Veeco Instruments Inc. today introduced the GENxplor Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) Deposition System, the industry's first fully-integrated MBE system for the compound semiconductor R+D market. The GENxplor creates high quality epitaxial layers on substrates up to 3" in diameter and is ideal for cutting edge research on a wide variety of materials including GaAs, nitrides, and oxides.
The NPXY50-286 nanopositioner is the latest addition to nPoint's piezo stage lineup. This new stage is designed for high specification research and OEM markets where its small size, fast speed, and high resolution are ideal.
Micron Technology's 16-nanometer NAND process technology, enabling the industry's smallest 128-gigabit multilevel cell NAND Flash memory devices, has been chosen by Flash Memory Summit as the 2013 Best of Show award winner in the category of Most Innovative Flash Memory Technology.
POET Technologies Inc., developer of the proprietary planar-optoelectronic technology ('POET') platform for monolithic fabrication of integrated electronic and optical devices on a single semiconductor wafer, announced today that its Board of Directors have endorsed the next phases of the Company's commercialization plan.
GreenCentre Canada has recently incorporated its third spinoff company, Precision Molecular Design Corporation. Based on a technology invented at Carleton University, Precision Molecular Design's proprietary ALD precursors enable 'greener' production of smaller and faster microchips for the semiconductor industry.
CVD Equipment Corporation and Graphene Batteries AS announced the signing of a Joint Intellectual Property Development Agreement for the development of NanotoMacro binder-less lithium battery electrodes and related novel battery designs. The companies believe that this collaborative relationship will help expedite the commercialization of enhanced lithium battery technology.
MultiCell Technologies, Inc. and Genisphere LLC will collaborate on the development of targeted MCT-485 nanoparticle therapeutics for the treatment of liver cancer. MCT-485 is a noncoding double stranded micro RNA (miRNA) which has demonstrated oncolytic and immune stimulating activity in in vitro models of hepatocellular carcinoma.
Partnership accelerates thin-film solar technology development . Existing scale and manufacturing capabilities of First Solar, combined with both companies' complementary technologies, will enable increased efficiency, cost competitiveness.
High precision positioning of microscope objectives along the optical axis has just made a giant leap forward: While piezo actuation has always been the undisputed choice in optical positioning when dynamics and accuracy matter most, some applications could have benefitted from more travel range. A new design principle developed by PI (Physik Instrumente) now extends the positioning range to 2 mm while maintaining very short settling times on the order of 20 milliseconds.
