Today at noon Finnish time, Kai-Erik Elers, Technical Applications Manager of the leading Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) systems manufacturer Picosun Oy presents and defends his PhD thesis 'Copper Diffusion Barrier Deposition on Integrated Circuit Devices by Atomic Layer Deposition Technique' at the Department of Chemistry of the Faculty of Science of the University of Helsinki.
The Photonics Advanced Research Center (PARC) at Osaka University and SPIE have signed an agreement to cooperate more closely in fostering information exchange and other activities to help advance photonics research.
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Ames Laboratory are collaborating with other research labs, universities, and industrial partners to develop better coatings for antifriction applications.
Developed in collaboration with the renowned imaging expert and online teaching pioneer Mike Davidson from Florida State University, this new website will be a comprehensive and independent resource to learn about the latest techniques in Fluorescence Imaging.
Microoled and CEA-Leti announce the OLED microdisplay with the finest pixel pitch (more than 1.7 million sub-pixels, 2 to 4 times more than the other emissive technologies) and the lowest power consumption reported to date (4 times more efficient).
A group of physicists from the University of Liege, Belgium shows how lab technicians can make droplets dance, float and bounce above a surface, keeping small amounts of fluid free of contamination and ripe for testing.
Take a gold sample the size of the head of a push pin, shoot a laser through it, and suddenly more than 100 billion particles of anti-matter appear. The anti-matter, also known as positrons, shoots out of the target in a cone-shaped plasma jet.
Taking a novel approach to educating the public about the fast-growing field of nanotechnology, the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany and Colonie Center today unveiled what is believed to be the first nanotechnology exhibit to be located in a shopping center anywhere in the world.
Yale Professor Mark Reed, whose research has contributed to nanotechnology in areas from quantum dots to molecular electronics, has been named a fellow of the IEEE, one of the most prestigious honors given by this professional association for the advancement of technology.
A*STAR's Institute of Microelectronics (IME), Singapore and Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing, one of the world?s top dedicated semiconductor foundries, have successfully optimized a range of fine-pitch packaging technologies for copper metallization and low-k dielectric silicon processes at 65 nanometer and below.
Researchers are investigating microneedles, nanoparticles and polymer carriers as potential new techniques to combat the leading cause of visual impairment and blindness in the United States, according to a report from the Third Annual ARVO/Pfizer Ophthalmics Research Institute Conference.
When atoms in a crystal are struck by laser light, their electrons, excited by the light, typically begin moving back and forth together in a regular pattern, resembling nanoscale soldiers marching in a lockstep formation. But according to a new theory developed by Johns Hopkins researchers, under the right conditions these atoms will rebel against uniformity.
The institution, jointly established by the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag) and the Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), has a federal mandate to strengthen independent research, consulting and training in the ecotoxicology field.
