Nanotechnology in Bulgaria: Market Report

Nanotechnology in Bulgaria: Market Report

The lack of funding, along with the alleged poor funding choices and the distractions of the investigations will no doubt be stunting the development of nanotechnology in Bulgaria. Thus, it would be no surprise to hear more about the alleged misappropriation of research funding in Bulgaria, as opposed to any scientific breakthroughs. [More]
Nanotechnology in Portugal: Market Report

Nanotechnology in Portugal: Market Report

Reforms introduced in 2011, along with the planned increases in government R&D spending make good reading, but the real test will be whether they can be delivered based on recovering from the GFC, and will consequently influence the speed at which Portuguese science and nanotechnology develop in the future.

Negative Oxygen Ion Impingement on SiO2 Thin Films During Growth

Negative Oxygen Ion Impingement on SiO2 Thin Films During Growth

A major concern in material science and technology is to gain insight into the fundamental processes involved in thin film nanostructuration. Hence, plasma-assisted thin film deposition is applicable, especially because of the strong interaction between the film at the time of growth and the plasma-generated species, which may result in metastable structure formation that offer singular properties or for a range of applications.
