Rolith's proprietary security labels based on metallic nanostructures are invisible to the human eye and standard inspection equipment but can be revealed using Terahertz microprobe sensors from Protemics.
Nanophase Technologies Corporation announced today the opening of a new polishing laboratory that will enable new product development and provide customer application support and process simulation for a variety of demanding optical and precision surface finishing markets.
Delphi is a complete solution that makes it possible to do fast correlative microscopy with unique overlay precision. The system is easy to use for both light- and electron-microscopists making correlation intuitive and fully automated.
Nearly 20 years ago researcher Alex Zettl synthesized in his lab a new material never before seen by nature: boron nitride nanotubes, the strongest, lightest, most thermally conducting, and most chemically resistant fiber known to exist. Now a startup has licensed this technology with the aim of manufacturing boron nitride nanotubes for commercial use.
In cooperation with Alcatel Lucent Bell Labs researcher from AMO realized the worldwide fastest Graphene based photodetectors. By demonstrating a maximum data rate of 50 GBit/s a new record level could be reached, pushing this technology closer to applications.
Graphene 3D Lab Inc., a company developing advanced materials for 3D printing, has submitted a provisional application for a patent to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The application is related to recent innovations in the materials and methods of 3D printable batteries.
