CEA-Leti and Menapic today announced a joint-development program to apply colored picosecond acoustics to materials analysis. Menapic's colored picosecond acoustics (APiC) technology is an innovative tool to characterize the mechanical properties of thin films.
Anasys Instruments reports on the NIST announcement in their Tech Beat publication which describes the work of Andrea Centrone and his colleagues demonstrating the use of AFM-IR for chemical composition studies at nanoscale resolution.
JPK Instruments, a world-leading manufacturer of nanoanalytic instrumentation for research in life sciences and soft matter, reports on the research studies of Dr Ioan Notingher, associate professor in the faculty of science at the University of Nottingham. With a research interest in the development of new optical and spectroscopic methods for studying biomaterials, he is applying JPK's atomic force microscope (AFM) system, the NanoWizard, and tip assisted optics module (TAO).
The U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory, located outside of Chicago, and California Lithium Battery, Inc. (CalBattery), a Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator portfolio company, announced today that they have signed a licensing agreement for an Argonne-developed, silicon-graphene composite anode material for high-energy lithium batteries.
NanoSight reports on how Nanoparticle Tracking Analysis, NTA, is being used in the development of a method to estimate the purity of vesicle preparations by comparing the ratio of nano-vesicle counts to protein concentration. This work is reported by Dr Aled Clayton of the School of Medicine at Cardiff University in an original research article published in the Journal of Extracellular Vesicles.
Dolomite, a world leader in the design and manufacture of microfluidic devices, has extended its range of System Solutions to include a Parallel Droplet System, a reliable and versatile high throughput system for the production of up to 30,000 monodispersed micro droplets per second ranging from20 to 60 micrometers in diameter.
ILC Dover, the designer and manufacturer of NASA's space suits and a wide range of engineered film and fabric products, announced today its innovative, flexible containment systems are being offered for nanotechnology applications.
Built on Intel's advanced 22nm, 3-D Tri-Gate transistor technology, Speedster22i HD devices consume half the power and are half the cost of competitive high-end FPGAs for targeted high bandwidth applications.
Bruker are hosting a workshop that combines presentations from leading UK research groups with practical workshops using electrical characterisation methods including photoconductive AFM, quantitative work function mapping, scanning capacitance and electrochemistry.
