Pyrograf Products was recently issued a Consent Order by the US Environmental Protection Agency allowing the sale of Pyrograf-III Carbon Nanotubes for commercial scale applications. This makes Pyrograf Products the first and only domestic supplier to be granted a consent order for direct sale of stacked-cup carbon nanotubes.
CelluForce will manufacture nanocrystalline cellulose, a recyclable and renewable nanomaterial, that will be commercialized throughout the world. The new company's identity was developed to reflect both the origin of the nanomaterial, extracted from tree cellulose, and one of the multiple properties of the product to be sold by the new company.
A novel, lower-dose formulation of indomethacin, a widely used pain reliever, is absorbed faster by the body than a standard formulation and maintains comparable maximum concentrations in the blood despite being administered at a lower dose, according to a study to be reported here tomorrow at the annual meeting of the American Headache Society.
Oxford Instruments Magnetic Resonance (OIMR) and Green Imaging Technologies, Inc. (GIT) have announced an agreement to establish a strategic partnership to bring complete cutting edge Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) solutions to the core analysis community. The partnership will open opportunities for NMR core analysis to be used by technicians with no specialist NMR knowledge or training and make special core analysis routine.
BigSky Technologies LLC, announced the issuance of the first in a series of patents for their GreenShield fabric finish technology. GreenShield is a new process for water-, oil-, and stain-repellency that replaces the conventional polymer-based chemicals with particle-based green nanotechnology, reducing the use of fluorochemicals by as much as 10 times.
Berkeley Design Automation, Inc., the nanometer circuit verification leader, today announced that TSMC has incorporated the Analog FastSPICE (AFS) Platform in Analog Mixed Signal Reference Flow 2.0 for device transient noise analysis targeting TSMC 28 nanometer process technology.
Q-Cells SE, one of the world's leading photovoltaics companies, has marked a new world record in the field of major polycrystalline solar cells. The independent calibration laboratory of Fraunhofer ISE (Institute for Solar Energy Systems) in Freiburg (Germany) confirmed the record efficiency rating of 19.5% on an area of 243 sqcm.
To lower the entry barriers to nanoimprint lithography for universities and R+D departments, NIL Technology today announces the introduction of its new Compact Nanoimprint Tool (CNI Tool). The CNI Tool is a compact thermal nanoimprint lithography tool that does not require any fixed lab installation.
As part of the collaboration, ITRI has purchased an EVG510 semi-automated wafer bonding system and an EVG6200 automated mask alignment system with top-bottom alignment and bond alignment options. EVG will also work closely with ITRI to develop, optimize and customize ITRI's wafer-level bonding processes for its partners and customers.
The instrument offers an excellent range of capability for materials research, from nanoindentation to nano-impact and fatigue, allowing the researcher to gain a complete picture of their materials properties, under true service conditions.
Previously, Cabot's aerogel products were called Nanogel aerogel, a name used for all its applications in several different market sectors - from building and industrial coatings to energy pipelines and even insulated apparel. Cabot's rebranding strategy will give the products separate identities and new names for each different market sector.
Helic Inc., the technology leader in synthesis and verification solutions for RF and high-speed IC design, today announced the TSMC RF Reference Design Kit 3.0 (RF RDK) incorporates its EDA products for EM modeling and RF substrate noise coupling analysis.
