Landa announces major developments to its Landa S10FC and S10C Nanographic Printing Presses, enhancing print quality and upgrading the press design. The new changes firmly place Nanographic Printing presses as a production-oriented digital printing solution for mainstream applications.
Researchers at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Genova and IMEM-CNR, Parma in Italy have used the FLS920 photoluminescence spectrometer from Edinburgh Instruments to measure the photoluminescence spectral properties, quantum efficiencies and lifetimes of novel CdTe semiconductor quantum disks, synthesized from disk-shaped Cu2Te nanocrystals.
Synos designs and manufactures Fast Array Scanning Atomic Layer Deposition (FAST-ALD) systems that are enabling the production of flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays for mobile devices.
Avo Photonics, specialists in opto-electronic systems requiring precision optical alignment, has been chosen by Optofluidics to provide system design and manufacturing services for their molecular NanoTweezer system.
Following the great success of Oxford Instruments' seminar in Bangalore last December, the company has planned two more seminars to be held this year in India. BTNT 2013 will be held at Mohali in association with Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Mohali, Institute of Nano Science and Technology, and at Mumbai in association with Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. The seminars will focus on cutting edge nanotechnology tools and their use in multiple fields.
Sol Voltaics announced it has completed a total of $15.6 Million in fresh funding by adding $9.4 Million in an equity round to the $6.2 Million Swedish Energy Agency loan to take its Solink nanomaterial for increasing the performance and energy output of solar panels into pilot production.
Graphene Frontiers, a company developed through the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Technology Transfer, has been awarded a $744,600 grant from the National Science Foundation to develop roll-to-roll production of graphene.
An improved broad-spectrum anti-HIV nanoviricide that inhibited two distinctly different types of HIV-1 viruses equally well has been identified. This drug candidate also exhibited a very large therapeutic index.
Entegris, Inc., a leader in contamination control and materials handling technologies for highly advanced manufacturing environments, and SEMATECH announced they have partnered to move forward the development of advanced nanoscale particle removal processes and cleaning technologies for next-generation wafers and devices.
Contact Resonance (CR) enables high resolution, quantitative imaging of both elastic storage modulus and viscoelastic loss modulus. The technique is particularly well suited for characterizing moderate to high modulus materials in the range of about 1GPa to 200GPA for materials such as composites, thin films, biomaterials, polymer blends, and even ceramics and metals.
