The company, a spin-out of the University of Manchester (where graphene was first isolated), has secured an Innovate UK grant for GBP 100,000 to finance a project with the long term goal of finding a way to improve anti-corrosive coatings through incorporation of the carbon nanomaterial graphene.
Intertek, a leading quality solutions provider to industries worldwide, which provides leading cutting edge analysis to meet the demands of nanotechnology innovators, today announced it had provided the nanotechnology testing expertise to verify the structural, physical and chemical properties of OCSiAl's single-walled carbon nanotube products (SWCNTs) for the world's largest SWCNT production facility.
Graphene 3D Lab Inc. has announced that it has received and successfully assembled an industrial scale thermoplastic extruder line to be used in the production of conductive graphene filament. The equipment, which has a production capacity of up to 10 kg per hour of 3D printer filament, is now operational and has been tested for the production of specialty filaments.
Park Systems, a leading manufacturer of atomic force microscopy (AFM) and nanoscale metrology products, proudly introduces Park NX-Bio, a powerful 3-in-1 bio-research tool that uniquely combines scanning ion conductance microscopy (SICM) with AFM and an inverted optical microscope (IOM) on the same platform.
Visitors to the Toyocolor booth at 5E-15, East Hall, will get a chance to see the latest developments in the company's nanotechnology-related products and solutions based on Toyo Ink Group?s core technologies, in particular its original dispersion technology.
This application note reviews how recent advances in next-generation AFMs from Asylum Research including the MFP-3D Infinity and the Cypher ES have enabled scientists to learn even more about polymeric materials. These include new modes to characterize mechanical, electrical, functional and thermal properties as well as the ability the visualize dynamics driven by chemical and thermal stimuli.
Oxford Instruments Asylum Research announced the winners of its AFM Image Contest. Congratulations to the Grand Prize winners Jessica Bickel and Kathy Aidala of Mount Holyoke College for their image submission of magnetic force microscopy of cobalt nanoribbons.
Bruker announced the release of BioScope Resolve, a biological atomic force microscope (bioAFM) that features the highest resolution imaging and most complete cell mechanics capabilities available for use with an inverted optical microscope.
2-DTech has been awarded a grant worth GBP 98,000 from InnovateUK to carry out research relating to graphene being integrated into solid state dye-sensitised solar cells. As a result, the company is linking up with solar technology specialist Dyesol in order to undertake this new, high profile project.
