Working with Picosun Oy, a Finland-based global manufacturer of ALD equipment, the Carleton researchers solved the problem, creating a copper precursor with the potential to meet the performance needs of global semiconductor foundries.
Power Sources Manufacturers Association announces to the power sources industry the availability of an advanced e-learning tutorial that covers the latest advances in the science, research and applications of nanotechnology.
While many books are dedicated to individual aspects of nanofabrication, there is no single source that defines and explains the total vision of the field. Filling this gap, Nanofabrication Handbook presents a unique collection of new and the most important established approaches to nanofabrication.
Plastic is getting a huge boost thanks to a team of European researchers that has found a new way to develop this material. An innovative 'recipe book' will help experts create the 'perfect plastic' with specific uses and properties.
With few exceptions, optical investigations on nanowires have so far been carried out almost exclusively by conventional optical microscopy, which has limited spatial resolution. Researchers have now developed a new method, called tip-enhanced near-field microscopy, which makes use of a tapered metal tip as an optical antenna.
Antibody-conjugated magnetic nanoparticles and superconducting quantum interference device sensors may provide a useful, viable and highly-sensitive alternative to mammographic screening in breast tumor cell detection.
Tetsushi Taguchi of the International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA) in Japan gives a comprehensive overview of the key technologies and materials required for the regeneration of organs. This review emphasizes the importance of the development of methods for the assembly and adhesion between individual cells and/or vesicles for in vitro regeneration of organs.
Imec and its 16 project partners have announced that they have launched the European FP7 project X10D, a project aimed at developing tandem organic solar cells with an increased conversion efficiency and lifetime, and a decreased production cost. The ultimate goal of the X10D project is to bring organic photovoltaic technologies (OPV) towards introduction into the competitive thin-film PV market.
A research team at the University of Alberta wants to refine the optical transmission of information by using a single photon, the fundamental building block of light that can allow unprecedented applications in optical information transfer.
