Bayer MaterialScience intends to focus its development activities more intently on topics that are closely linked to its core business. For that reason the company will bring its work on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) to a close. Precisely how the research results and know-how for the production and application CNT will be used further will be determined shortly.
Asylum Research announces the new MFP-3D Origin Atomic Force Microscope (AFM). The MFP-3D Origin is at the intersection of performance and affordability in the Asylum Research MFP-3D AFM family.
