Nanomaterial Trends 2015: Nanocomposites and High Strength Nanomaterials

As nanotechnology continues to advance in almost every scientific field, its application in industry has been particularly valuable through the growing use of nanocomposites. A nanocomposite can be a one, two or three-dimensional matrix in which particles (<100 nm in size) have been added to improve a particular property of the material. The presence of these composite materials are able to reinfo [More]
Using Mass Spectroscopy on Metastable Species During Plasma Processing

Using Mass Spectroscopy on Metastable Species During Plasma Processing

The presence of particle detectors operated at up to 4x10-4Torr pressures enables operation of mass spectrometers at pressures close to that of several plasma processing systems. This results in a better sampling of both neutral and ionized species obtained from plasma reactors. [More]
Time Resolved Mass and Energy Spectra Measurements of Plasma

Time Resolved Mass and Energy Spectra Measurements of Plasma

Beneficial data can be obtained by directly measuring spectra and energy distributions of mass-identified positive and negative ions approaching the target surfaces in plasma reactors. [More]

The Challenges and Methods for Characterizing Nanomedicines

The Challenges and Methods for Characterizing Nanomedicines

The European Science Foundation has defined nanomedicine as “the science and technology of diagnosing, treating and preventing disease and traumatic injury, of relieving pain, and of preserving and improving human health, using molecular tools and molecular knowledge of the human body.” In contrast to the traditional medical fields, nanomedicine focuses its efforts specifically towards research and development on the nanoscale.
