Mike Lazaridis and Doug Fregin, who together founded BlackBerry, announced today that they have partnered again to establish Quantum Valley Investments, a $100 million private fund that will provide financial and intellectual capital for the further development and commercialization of breakthroughs in Quantum Information Science.
Fully roll-to-roll printable organic photovoltaic energy cells have been produced by the Technical University of Denmark, Department of Energy Conservation and Storage using printed Clevios PEDOT:PSS from Heraeus Conductive Polymers Division rather than traditional vacuum processed Indium Tin Oxide.
Brewer Science, a leader in lithography enhancement materials for semiconductor manufacturing for over 30 years and commercial supplier of electronics-grade carbon nanotube (CNT) materials, announces the installation of a scale-up reactor to increase production of its CNTRENE C100 family of electronics-grade CNT materials by tenfold.
The free-standing, solid boron doped microwave chemical vapor deposition (CVD) diamond electrode is expected to transform sensing technologies, allowing the development of next generation advanced electroanalysis sensing systems to benefit the biomedical, environmental, food, pharmaceutical, and oil and gas industries.
Park Systems introduces Park XE7, an affordable, research-grade AFM with flexible sample handling. It facilitates AFM researchers with a limited budget while not sacrificing any of the innovative Park AFM technology that sets this product line apart from conventional AFMs.
Lomiko and Graphene Labs agree to co-develop a vertically integrated supply chain that includes a secure supply of high-quality graphite, cost-effective and scalable processing, tight quality control and integration of graphene-based products in end-user products.
Bruker today announces the SkyScan 1272, an innovative high-resolution X-ray micro-CT (computed tomography) system, which can non-destructively visualize up to 200 Megapixel (14,450x14,450 pixels) virtual slices through objects.
There has been another leap forward in the rapidly developing field of nanotechnology. The scientists at Contipro Biotech have created a new device capable of producing near-perfectly aligned nanofibers.
The project matches the scientific expertise from the University of Waterloo in macromolecular science with the sustainability benefits of EcoSphere bio-based nanoparticles which are based on green chemistry. The goal of the project is to broaden the scientific knowledge base of the EcoSphere technology to support its introduction into new application areas.
