Hiden Analytical introduce a new gas analyser - the HPR-20 QIC TMS system - specifically configured for analysis of fast transient pulses and of rapid compositional changes in gaseous processes. Developed for the researcher, the system is suited to studies of diverse thermally triggered and chemically triggered reactions.
NanoSight, leading manufacturers of unique nanoparticle characterization technology, reports on the work of Professor Hang (Hubert) Yin's group at the University of Colorado at Boulder where they apply Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis (NTA) to characterize biological nanoparticles such as microvesicles.
Fast and easy Raman spectroscopy of microscopic sampling areas is now available to researchers in the UK and Ireland as Elliot Scientific introduces the CRAIC Apollo Raman Spectrometer - available as an add-on for modern research grade microscopes, or as an option for CRAIC's existing range of UV-Vis-NIR Microspectrophotometers.
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.
