ion-mask, P2i's world-leading liquid repellent nano-coating for footwear and lifestyle products, has taken the web by storm after featuring in 'Liquid Mountaineering' - a video viral that has generated more than four million hits on YouTube.
Wissenschaftler aus Hannover und Jena haben eine neue Methode entwickelt, die einen Siliziumkristall zum perfekten Spiegel macht: Sie haben in seine Oberflaeche ein speziell strukturiertes Nano-Gitter geaetzt.
Experts from key EU projects united in Brussels at Nanomedicine in Europe today to deliver a strong message to the European Parliament that concerted and coordinated action is needed to ensure the widespread benefits offered by advances in nanomedicine are not squandered.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have found that applying a small electric field results in faster formation of ceramic products during manufacture at lower temperatures, and enhances the strength of the ceramic itself.
A team of Duke University chemists has perfected a simple way to make tiny copper nanowires in quantity. The cheap conductors are small enough to be transparent, making them ideal for thin-film solar cells, flat-screen TVs and computers, and flexible displays.
The mystery surrounding what happens when bubbles collide has finally been busted. And knowing how bubbles bounce apart and fuse together could improve the quality of ice-cream and champagne as well as increase efficiency in the mining industry.
Metal mirrors made with extremely high precision and exactly positioned are the key elements of modern telescopes. A new production technique enables complex optical surfaces to be manufactured with excellent trueness of shape and hitherto unattained positional accuracy.
Light-emitting diodes are gaining ground: They are now being used as background lighting for displays. But the manufacturing of complex LED optics is still complex and expensive. A new technology is revolutionizing production: Large-scale LED components can now be manufactured cost-effectively.
Counterfeit products create losses in the billions each year. Beside the economic damages, all too often additional risks arise from the poor materials and shoddy workmanship of 'knock-off artists'. Yet with the aid of fluorescing dyes, materials can be individually tagged and identified with certainty.
