Anasys Instruments reports on the announcement from the University of Illinois which describes the effect of nanometer-scale heating on semiconductor plasmonic microparticles which reveal surface plasmon resonance.
NanoSight reports on how Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis, NTA, is being used at the University of Wyoming in the characterization of the physical and interfacial properties of manufactured nano materials.
Silex Microsystems, the world's largest pure-play MEMS foundry, today announced that it has joined an international European Union-funded program aimed at developing a new MEMS manufacturing platform based on advanced inkjet-based printing technologies.
The system seamlessly integrates the Agilent 6000ILM AFM (atomic force microscope) and a HORIBA XploRA INV (inverted Raman microscope). The combination enables researchers to go beyond the optical diffraction limit to achieve nanoscale resolution as they perform Raman spectroscopy.
Bayer MaterialScience intends to focus its development activities more intently on topics that are closely linked to its core business. For that reason the company will bring its work on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) to a close. Precisely how the research results and know-how for the production and application CNT will be used further will be determined shortly.
Asylum Research announces the new MFP-3D Origin Atomic Force Microscope (AFM). The MFP-3D Origin is at the intersection of performance and affordability in the Asylum Research MFP-3D AFM family. With full upgrade potential to the MFP-3D and its complete range of accessories, the MFP-3D Origin is the best place to start with atomic force microscopy.
Dyesol, the world leader in the commercialisation of Dye Solar Cell (DSC) technology, has achieved a 'game changing' technical breakthrough by achieving a solid-state DSC efficiency of 11.3% at full sun.
American Graphite Technologies Inc. announces that the Company has received independent test results for the resistivity of the graphene paper manufactured by its licensing partner CTI Nanotechnologies LLC.
