Medical history was made in 2011 with the world's first synthetic organ transplant. A terminally ill cancer patient received a new lease on life with the transplant of a synthetic trachea made from a POSS nanocomposite polymer.
This novel optical surface profiler mode combines patent-pending hardware and software to enable select models of Bruker's ContourGT 3D Optical Microscopes to break the optical diffraction limit and deliver lateral resolutions that were previously considered impossible to achieve.
The symposia will be held on the 5-6th October 2011 in Berlin focusing on applications developments in life sciences. These meetings continue to be highly regarded on the international life sciences meetings calendar. More than 100 scientists from around the world are expected to come to Berlin to discuss their results and share scientific knowledge in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
Leica Microsystems and Molecular Devices have launched the next generation of Leica MM AF imaging systems, a product line that combines Leica Microsystems' leading microscopy technology and Molecular Devices' latest MetaMorph NX Software.
Bruker today launched the Dimension Edge PSS Atomic Force Microscope (AFM), a production-environment AFM specifically tailored for patterned sapphire substrate (PSS) metrology in high brightness light-emitting diode (HB-LED) manufacturing.
These improvements were obtained through the chemical and mechanical modification and functionalization of carbon nanotubes in order for them to be accepted and integrated properly into the vinyl ester matrix.
Nanoco Group plc, a world leader in the development and manufacture of cadmium-free quantum dots, announces that it has signed a joint development agreement with one of the world's largest lighting companies which is already a major producer of light emitting diode (LED) lights.
Nanostart-holding Nanosys, Inc. today announced that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has awarded it funds to refine and bring to scale its SiNANOde materials for the automotive market. These innovations will enable Electric Vehicles to travel 300 miles on a single charge.
Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. announced the launching of a new product, a syndiotactic elastomer NOTIO SN. The company manufactures and widely distributes elastomers (flexible polymeric materials) for uses which include automotive, packaging, and construction materials.
RUSNANO and VNIINM (a subsidiary of TVEL which, in turn, is a member company of State Atomic Energy Corporation ROSATOM) have signed an investment agreement that provides for commercial production of high-strengh nanostructured wires with high electrical conductivity.
Bandgap Engineering, a developer of silicon nanowire solutions, announced today that it had secured a pair of patents representing significant breakthroughs in solar energy conversion efficiency and cost.
