A123 Systems, a developer and manufacturer of advanced Nanophosphate lithium iron phosphate batteries and systems, has introduced Nanophosphate EXT, a new lithium ion battery technology capable of operating at extreme temperatures without requiring thermal management.
The new high-tech facility provides customers access to a wide range of scientific instruments for life-science and analytical applications using NMR, X-ray analysis, mass spectrometry, chromatography, molecular spectroscopy and AFM microscopy.
The Berlin Competence Centre for Thin Film and Nanotechnology for Photovoltaics (PVcomB) - an initiative of the Helmholtz Centre Berlin for Materials and Energy and the Technical University of Berlin - has set two thin-film solar-module production tools in operation together with Leybold Optics GmbH from Germany.
SouthWest NanoTechnologies (SWeNT) has developed two new grades in its SMW line of Specialty Multi-wall CNT. These materials are used as additives that enable higher electrical conductivity in polymer compounds and improved cathode performance in Lithium Ion batteries.
JPK Instruments, a world-leading manufacturer of nanoanalytic instrumentation for research in life sciences and soft matter, reports on the use of AFM to study the nanoscale interactions of biological systems at the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (IPRI) and ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) of the University of Wollongong in the group of Dr Michael Higgins.
Kaneka and imec report a large area (6 inch semi-square) heterojunction silicon solar cell with a certified power conversion efficiency of 22.68% with an electroplated copper contact grid on top of the transparent conductive oxide layer.
GLOBALFOUNDRIES, a worldwide leader in the technology roadmap race, has agreed to manufacture devices for ST using ST's proprietary Fully Depleted Silicon-on-Insulator (FD-SOI) technology in both the 28nm and 20nm nodes.
Haydale Limited and Cheap Tubes Inc today announce that they have reached agreement for CTi to act as the exclusive agent for the supply of the Haydale HDPlas nano products in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
The CRAIC Apollo is designed to add Raman spectroscopy to modern optical microscopes. With the ability to measure Raman spectra of micron-scale samples, the CRAIC Apollo is a powerful tool to identify and characterize materials, pharmaceuticals, semiconductors and biological samples.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has accepted Izon Science Patent No. 11/721047 for an invention for detecting, measuring and controlling particles. The patent covers the novel elastomeric size-tunable nanopores used in Izon Science's qNano and qViro instruments.
