'Organic and large-area electronics' (OLAE) is focused on materials and devices built from organic carbon-based molecules that are able to conduct electricity. Because these are lighter, more flexible and less expensive than inorganic conductors, such as copper or silicon, they are a viable alternative for many electronics applications.
American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (AABGU) just received a $3 million pledge from long-time AABGU supporter and National Vice President Ruth Flinkman-Marandy and Ben Marandy. This generous donation will support a new atom chip and quantum optics research and development facility at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Beer-Sheva, Israel.
The eBeam Initiative, a forum dedicated to the education and promotion of new semiconductor manufacturing approaches based on electron beam (eBeam) technologies, today announced that several of its members will present the latest breakthroughs using eBeam technologies to improve photomask critical dimension uniformity (CDU) and wafer yields this week during Photomask Japan (PMJ) 2012, the 19th international symposium on photomasks and nextgeneration lithography masks being held at the Pacifico Yokohama in Yokohama, Japan.
Two new advanced laboratory buildings for high-precision science and measurements have officially opened in Boulder, Colo., providing upgraded facilities to support technology innovation and economic growth as well as the training of future scientists.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass) have provided the first evidence that engineered nanoparticles are able to accumulate within plants and damage their DNA.
Materials scientists from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), working with an international research team, have helped prove the stability of a novel - and rugged - thin-film membrane that could prove key to a new class of sterilizable, flexible organic electronics for medical applications.
Researchers from the NIST Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology and Arizona State University have used environmental transmission electron microscopy (ETEM) to explain the role of nickel nanoparticles in lowering the operating temperature of praseodymium doped ceria (PDC) anodes in solid-oxide fuel cells (SOFCs).
How small can a chemical compound be and still retain the properties of that same compound in bulk? With computer models and laboratory experiments, researchers have determined the smallest crystal configuration, or as they call it, a "baby crystal", of lead sulfide.
Wissenschaftler der Friedrich-Alexander-Universitaet Erlangen-Nuernberg und des Uniklinikums Erlangen arbeiten daran, die Prinzipien der klassischen Chirurgie auf Behandlungen innerhalb der Zellmembran zu uebertragen. Vom gewohnten Handwerkszeug der Chirurgen bleiben jedoch nur Begriffe; Nanopartikel und Laser ersetzen das Operationsbesteck.
At the University of Montpellier 2, the Colloidal Metallurgy team is designing a system (using polymers and colloids) that will permit a better understanding of the mechanical and plastic properties of polycrystals.
The main scientific program has the theme of advances in photonics tools and techniques for the life sciences. Ten leading UK research scientists will present their latest work while leading industry specialists will provide parallel tutorials on their latest instrumentation and applications breakthroughs.
