Surrey NanoSystems' unique nanotechnology processing know-how has been used to deposit the world's blackest material on lightweight, temperature-sensitive substrates. Its new 'super black' coating can be applied to optical instruments for space applications, to reduce reflections and increase sensitivity.
JPK Instruments, a world-leading manufacturer of nanoanalytic instrumentation for research in life sciences and soft matter, reports on how researchers from Kanazawa University in Japan have used the NanoWizard3 AFM to push the boundaries of high resolution imaging on large objects.
Having led the way in large scale manufacture of these incredibly strong, flexible and versatile materials, Thomas Swan are now ensuring that both carbon nanotubes and graphene are safely introduced to new markets.
Toronto-based Integran Technologies Inc. announced US 8,486,319 issued July 16, 2013 describing new applications for its nanoplating technology (Nanovate NP) for imprinting polymer surfaces to render them super-hydrophobic and/or self-cleaning.
LayTec in-line GmbH has won this year's Intersolar AWARD in the category 'PV Production Technologies' for X Link - a revolutionary metrology system for non-destructive evaluation of the EVA cross-linking level immediately after lamination.
Precision motion specialist PI introduces a new lower-cost, hexapod micro-positioning system, a parallel kinematic platform that provides motion with 6-degrees of freedom. Due to its new cost-saving design, that retains the full flexibility offered by the PI hexapod architecture, the H-820 will enable applications in new markets.
