CEA-Leti said today that its multi-partner programs, IDEAL and IMAGINE, have demonstrated cost-effective solutions that extend 193nm immersion lithography for 1X nodes for critical levels such as contact and via, and for the cut layer, when multi-patterning is used.
The new nanomaterial efficiently separates the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide from nitrogen, the other significant component of the waste gas released by coal-fired power stations. This would allow the carbon dioxide to be separated before being stored, rather than released to the atmosphere.
The remarkable material graphene promises a wide range of applications in future electronics that could complement or replace traditional silicon technology. Researchers of the Electronic Properties of Materials Group at the University of Vienna have now paved the way for the integration of graphene into the current silicide based technology.
A breakthrough in our understanding of the properties of titania (titanium dioxide) - the basis of self-cleaning window technology - has been made by scientists at UCL, uncovering a decades old misunderstanding that has clouded our knowledge of how mixed phase titania catalysts operate.
Monolayer graphene exhibits exceptional electronic and mechanical properties, making it a very promising material for nanoelectromechanical devices. Now, researchers have conclusively demonstrated the piezoresistive effect in graphene in a nanoelectromechanical membrane configuration that provides direct electrical readout of pressure to strain transduction.
Forschern ist es gelungen, magnetische Nanokristalle im inneren Hohlraum von Kohlenstoff-Nanoröhren zu züchten. Diese weisen drei Besonderheiten auf: (1) Die Grösse der Kristalle lässt sich durch den Durchmesser der Nanoröhre kontrollieren. (2) Die Kristalle sind vor Oxidation geschützt. (3) Durch ihre Winzigkeit haben die Nanokristalle andere magnetische Eigenschaften.
