Sol Voltaics today unveiled SolInk, an economical nanomaterial that promises to increase the efficiency of crystalline silicon or thin film solar modules by up to 25 percent or more, leading to solar power plants and rooftop solar arrays that will generate far more electricity than today's best commercially available systems.
JPK Instruments, a world-leading manufacturer of nanoanalytic instrumentation for research in life sciences and soft matter, are happy to announce that registration is now open for the fifth international symposium on the applications of optical tweezers and related technologies in the life sciences.
Cadence Design Systems, Inc. today announced an ongoing multi-year agreement with TSMC to develop the design infrastructure for 16-nanometer FinFET technology, targeting advanced node designs for mobile, networking, servers and FPGA applications.
LamdaGen Corporation, a nanotechnology platform company that provides plasmonic sensors and systems for diagnostics and life sciences, announced the Japanese Patent Office issuance of patent number 5203390, 'Enzymatic Assays for LSPR', which enables highly sensitive and quantitative diagnostics.
Fulfilling the promise of performance and power scaling at 16 nanometers, ARM and Cadence today announced details behind their collaboration to implement the first ARM Cortex_A57 processor on TSMC's 16-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process.
Bruker announced today the release of the Dimension IconŽ SSRM-HR, a new atomic force microscope configuration including the Scanning Spreading Resistance Microscopy module, designed specifically for high-resolution semiconductor characterization.
Vancouver-based Perfect Lithium Corp. has filed patents for its innovative materials processing technology. These novel methods have the potential to reduce energy storage costs ($/kWh) of lithium-ion battery materials by as much as 50%.
As the new flagship product for CRAIC Technologies, 20/30 PV microspectrophotometer is designed to non-destructively analyze many types of microscopic samples from the deep ultraviolet to the near infrared by several different techniques.
A year ago, the microtechnology, nanotechnology, and advanced materials industry looked out on the year 2012 with quite positive expectations. As it turned out, the unstable economic situation has left its mark on these industries, too. For 2013, at least, the companies expect a slight upwards trend.
