Potential Uses of Graphene in Photovoltaics, Energy Storage, and Plasmonic Circuits

Graphene is gaining traction as a potential material, with applications ranging from aerospace, lighting, energy to optoelectronics and electronics. This article discusses four fabrication techniques and three potential applications of graphene. [More]

Factory Scale Up in Milling of Raw Materials

It is a challenging task to reproduce dispersion in a production facility that has already been successfully done in the laboratory. Even after reaching the appropriate grind, the qualitative characteristics of a 7 Hegman produced in the factory may be different [More]

Application of an Immersion Milling System for the Production of Nanoparticles

The HCPN mill can grind particles into the nanoparticle range at shorter processing times. The new design integrates several changes in the internal milling system, but the basic easy to clean and use aspect of the immersion mill remains the same. [More]

Different Types of Graphene: Suitability of Graphene Fabrication Methods for Various Applications

The development of graphene is taking place at a rapid pace. The nanomaterial can produced by many different methods, each of which produces different forms of graphene. These forms have often radically different qualities, which are suited for use in different applications. [More]
Evaluating Nanoporosity in Materials Using Compact, Low-Voltage FE-SEM

Evaluating Nanoporosity in Materials Using Compact, Low-Voltage FE-SEM

Porosity plays a key role in the physical and mechanical properties of materials. The physical properties include instance, compression and tensile strength, density, and thermal conduction or expansion. Porosity also affects the resistance of a material to chemical corrosion. [More]
Nanoscale Analysis of Impact-Resistant Polymeric Materials Using AFM-IR

Nanoscale Analysis of Impact-Resistant Polymeric Materials Using AFM-IR

Rubber is mostly composed of vulcanized natural rubber that has been heat treated with sulfur to provide its resilient physical and impact resistant properties at a wide range of temperatures. Rubber has presently been engineered to tailor for specific applications and its structure is highly complicated. [More]
Using Instrumented Indentation to Measure Strain-Rate Sensitivity of Nickel

Using Instrumented Indentation to Measure Strain-Rate Sensitivity of Nickel

In a number of materials, the plastic stress that can be sustained depends on strain rate through a power-law relationship: higher stresses are sustained with higher strain rates and vice versa. [More]
Nanoscale Studies of Stratum Corneum with Integrated AFM and IR Spectroscopy

Nanoscale Studies of Stratum Corneum with Integrated AFM and IR Spectroscopy

The outermost layer of the skin serving as a barrier to foreign substances and which maintains the homeostasis of a human body is termed as the stratum corneum (SC). Those functions are critical for ensuring an individual's well-being. [More]
Inspection of Lead-Free Solder for Tin Whiskers Using the Phenom SEM

Inspection of Lead-Free Solder for Tin Whiskers Using the Phenom SEM

The law of most countries has banned using heavy metals such as cadmium, lead and mercury. This has resulted in a major impact on the semiconductor industry. [More]
