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.
Beneq announces the launch of its new atmospheric wet coating technology called nFOG for use in applications such as anti-reflective coatings for large-sized glass. This new technology combines the advantages of the speed of spray coating, the quality of dip coating and the high material yield of roller coating.
Asylum Research announces the availability of its powerful new nanomechanical imaging technique, AM-FM Viscoelastic Mapping Mode, for its entire line of Cypher and MFP-3D atomic force microscopes. AM-FM Viscoelastic Mapping Mode lets you quickly and gently image viscoelastic properties including storage modulus and loss tangent with nanoscale spatial resolution.
By making use of nanotechnology, OSRAM hopes to produce significantly more LED chips with its existing production plant. OSRAM researchers have for the first time succeeded in manufacturing a so-called '3D nano LED' for white light.
