Sappi announced that it will build a pilot-scale plant for low-cost Cellulose NanoFibrils (nanocellulose) production at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen in the Netherlands. The pilot plant is expected to be operational within nine months.
BASF has acquired Seashell's technology, patents and know-how for silver nanowires. The acquisition extends BASF's portfolio of solutions offered to the display industry through the company's growing Electronic Materials unit.
Nanolive SA announces the release of an off-line version of their STEVE software. Starting from today, scientists will be enabled to travel inside 3D cells in full color by simply downloading STEVE on their laptop.
Park Systems announced today they have signed a Joint Development Project with nanoelectronics research center imec, to develop in-line AFM metrology solutions of future technology nodes including but not limited to surface roughness, thickness, critical dimension, and sidewall roughness.
Roche and BioMed X announced today that they have entered into a collaboration agreement to establish a research group focusing on the development of a novel sensor technology platform based on new nanomaterials such as graphene.
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.
