The purpose of this Workshop on 3D interconnect metrology is to gain a better understanding of how new and existing wafer metrology technologies can be utilized, modified or enhanced to measure and improve 3D interconnect processes.
The question how nanotechnology is dealt with politically which will be analysed at the international workshop Nanotechnology Governance Compared. It aims at casting diverse perspectives at the phenomenon of nanotechnology.
A new method now enables ETH-Zurich researchers to study hundreds of cell-surface proteins simultaneously. The results obtained could help to develop more accurate diagnostic tests and more specific therapies in the future.
Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology have demonstrated entanglement - a phenomenon peculiar to the atomic-scale quantum world - in a mechanical system similar to those in the macroscopic everyday world.
Clean coal technology, biomass energy generation, solar panels and wind turbines may take center stage in the public's perception of major energy research, but according to WVU Associate Professor Dimitris Korakakis, the quest for alternatives to traditional lighting can also have a major impact on saving energy.
This year's 5th NanoRegulation Conference will take place within the context of the NanoEurope 2009 Symposium on November 25th (afternoon) and 26th, 2009 at the Hochschule fuer Technik in Rapperswil, Switzerland.
Unlike the European Commission, the European Parliament assesses REACH inadequate to handle manufactured nanomaterials and calls on the Commission, among other things, to propose reviews of all relevant legislation within two years. What might be the consequences of this non-binding report; is it just canvassing or a true turnaround on this issue?
A nanotechnology over-the-counter prostate cancer test kit could be coming to a pharmacy near you, thanks to the collaborative work of a University of Central Florida chemist and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center Orlando researchers.
SCHOTT Solar, a leading photovoltaics manufacturer, entered into a 3 year research partnership with IMEC, Europe?s leading independent nanoelectronics research center. SCHOTT Solar joins IMEC's newly launched silicon photovoltaics industrial affiliation program.
