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.
JEOL offers a new point-and-shoot navigation system that makes finding precise locations on a sample both fast and easy for SEM and EPMA users. The Stage Navigation System combines Stage Navigation Software with an externally-mounted 3 Megapixel CMOS color digital Stage Navigation Camera that functions as a low magnification optical microscope. The external camera eliminates the need for a dedicated port on the electron column.
SAIC-Frederick, Inc. and Biomatrica have begun a technology collaboration to improve molecular analysis of tumors, which is becoming increasingly important in cancer research and in the design of the next generation of targeted therapies.
GPI will use the systems to increase capacity for the production of high brightness light emitting diodes (HB LEDs) being driven by applications such as backlighting, lighting, displays, and automotive.
Beneq has been chosen a Winner of Red Herring's Top 100 Europe prize, an award in recognition of the leading private companies from Europe, celebrating these startups' innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Agar Scientific, a leading supplier of microscopy accessories and consumables, announces the new 1050 TEM Mill from Fischione Instruments to provide tabletop precision preparation for producing high-quality TEM samples for a wide variety of applications.
