Bruker today announces the SkyScan 1272, an innovative high-resolution X-ray micro-CT (computed tomography) system, which can non-destructively visualize up to 200 Megapixel (14,450x14,450 pixels) virtual slices through objects.
There has been another leap forward in the rapidly developing field of nanotechnology. The scientists at Contipro Biotech have created a new device capable of producing near-perfectly aligned nanofibers.
The project matches the scientific expertise from the University of Waterloo in macromolecular science with the sustainability benefits of EcoSphere bio-based nanoparticles which are based on green chemistry. The goal of the project is to broaden the scientific knowledge base of the EcoSphere technology to support its introduction into new application areas.
The world's lead manufacturer of chemicals for the metal finishing and electroplating industry has just signed a major research contract with Case Western Reserve University, aimed at developing novel chemistries and processes that will enable the manufacturing of smaller semiconductor devices than heretofore possible in routine production.
Magnolia Solar, Inc. has demonstrated a flexible CIGS solar cell with an efficiency of 13 percent, rivaling the average efficiency of current PV technologies and proving that flexible thin film solar cells are potentially a viable solution for various energy needs.
On March 12, Beneq will open a subsidiary and operations in Saint Petersburg to commercialize its atomic layer deposition technology (ALD) in the Russian market. As part of the overall strategy, the company will sign an agreement to launch a joint laboratory for research and development of industrial applications in ALD with Saint Petersburg State Electrotechnical University.
NanoSight reports on how Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis, NTA, is being used in the development of novel bioanalytical assays at Illinois State University. The main application is the characterization of gold nanoparticles and differentiation between monodisperse samples from small numbers of aggregated materials.
Toronto-based Integran Technologies Inc. announced further advances in its "structural metal plating-on-polymer" technology (Nanovate NP) for enhancing fuel efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by enabling the cost-effective manufacture of lightweight transportation parts.
Particle Sciences, a leading drug delivery CRO, has teamed up with NETZSCH Premier Technologies, a leading manufacturer of wet milling and dispersing equipment, to provide drug developers with improved access to state-of-the-art pharmaceutical nanomilling equipment and full pharmaceutical development capabilities.
