Air Products has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire all of DuPont's interest in DuPont Air Products NanoMaterials LLC (DA NanoMaterials), the two companies' 50-50 joint venture serving the global semiconductor and wafer polishing industries.
Professor Michael Graetzel has won the prestigious 2012 ALBERT EINSTEIN World Award of Science for his outstanding achievements in inventing and developing the Graetzel Cell, the Dye-sensitised Solar Cell (DSC), that is regarded by many as the single most important breakthrough in the development of sustainable energy.
The agreements, which are designed to improve the flexibility and efficiency of the joint venture, include a NAND Flash supply agreement for Micron to supply NAND products to Intel and agreements for certain joint venture assets to be sold to Micron.
3M and Chesapeake Energy Corporation announced an agreement to collaborate in designing, manufacturing and marketing a broad portfolio of compressed natural gas (CNG) tanks for use in all sectors of the United States transportation market.
Nanostart holding Lumiphore announced the European launch of three diagnostic tests by its partner ThermoFisher Scientific Clinical Diagnostics using Lumiphore's time-resolved fluorescent reporter technology.
By combining fundamental rethinking of the circuit architectures and designs with clever use of the benefits that the aggressively scaled technology offers (such as high intrinsic speed of the nanoscale transistors) the program aims at developing small, cost-, performance- and power-competitive reconfigurable radio transceivers in 28nm digital CMOS technology covering all key broadband communication standards including next generation cellular and connectivity standards such as LTE advanced and next-generation WiFi.
Cleanfield, along with its partners McMaster University, Zhejiang University and Hyperion Shanghai Drive Technology Co. Ltd., were recently awarded an International Science and Technology Partnerships Program (ISTPP) grant, with an objective to further develop a new photovoltaic (PV) nanowire solar cell based on low cost substrates initially intended for the rapidly expanding concentrator photovoltaic market.
This process is based on a technique to synthesize continuously large-scale, extra-fine, and long CNTs of high purity with three walls on an average, and is expected to enhance the speed for practical use of CNTs in all fields.
Nanolane, specialised in the development and commercialisation of nanomaterials characterisation systems, is bringing out an innovative measurement solution - Sarfus Mapping Lite - that fits in with any optical microscope setup functioning with reflected light.
