Overcoming the Challenges of Conventional PLD using Coldab® USPLD and the Technology Advantages

Overcoming the Challenges of Conventional PLD using Coldab® USPLD and the Technology Advantages

PLD is a thin film deposition process that involves the deposition of a material on a substrate by striking with high power laser pulses. The whole process occurs inside a vacuum chamber. Vaporization of this material takes place in the laser-ablation process, creating a plasma cloud. [More]
Graphene: Biomedical Research and Applications

Graphene: Biomedical Research and Applications

CVD graphene from University Wafer is a great substrate to use for a wide variety of biotech research. Graphene has several unique properties including: DNA absorption, its function as a super quencher and its protection from enzyme cleavage which make it an ideal nanomaterial for biological engineering.

Ultrasonically Propelled Nanorods

Ultrasonically Propelled Nanorods

Over the last several years scientists from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have been studying how to make nanomotors move around when suspended in a liquid. In 2012 a team of scientists from Penn State first observed that metal nanorods would rotate in response to ultrasound, but the reason why has baffled scientists since its discovery. The research conduct by the NIST could now offer new insight and applications inside the human body. [More]

Magnetometry Measurements on Nanostructured Magnetic Materials

First-order reversal curves (FORC) can be used to determine the relative proportions of reversible and irreversible components of the magnetization of a material. [More]
Self-Assembling Nanoparticles Help Detect Cancer Cells Earlier

Self-Assembling Nanoparticles Help Detect Cancer Cells Earlier

According to the World Health Organization, cancer is among the leading causes of death worldwide, accounting for 8.2 million deaths in 2012. Researchers from Imperial College London have recently developed a self-assembling nanoparticle which could improve MRI detection of cancer cells. [More]
Fine Tuning Graphene with Nano-Ribbons

Fine Tuning Graphene with Nano-Ribbons

Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) have developed a new way of using graphene ribbons to fine tune the wonder material causing it to act like a semiconductor. [More]
Discovery of a Boron "Buckyball"

Discovery of a Boron "Buckyball"

Nanotechnology experienced a huge surge 30 years ago when a formation of carbon atoms shaped like a soccer ball was created, which became known as a buckyball. The discoverers were awarded the Nobel Prize in 1996 and the windfall of publicity that followed helped nanotechnology explode into technologists' interests across the world. [More]
