Nanocomposites in Aerospace

Nanocomposites in Aerospace

Nanocomposites are found in a number of places and the use of nanoparticle-rich materials predates the understanding of nature of these materials. Nanoscale organo-clays have been used to control flow of polymer solutions since the mid-1950s. Nanocomposites have even provided the aerospace industry with a variety of material solutions. [More]
Nanotechnology in Vietnam: Market Report

Nanotechnology in Vietnam: Market Report

While international workshops and etc are positive movements, there are barriers such as corruption, communist mindsets and relatively low expenditure levels that will hinder the development of nanotechnology in Vietnam in the short term. Vietnam will also struggle to compete with more developed and larger Asian neighbours such as Japan, South Korea and China. [More]
Nanotechnology in South Africa: Market Report

Nanotechnology in South Africa: Market Report

Despite growth in research funding in South Africa, nanotechnology has not been specifically targeted as a growth area for the country. Therefore, it would not be surprising to see South Africa overtaken by some other emerging economies in this field. [More]
Environmentally Friendly Nanoparticle Synthesis

Environmentally Friendly Nanoparticle Synthesis

Nanotechnology is a rapidly developing science and a number of methods are now available for producing nanoparticles. However, some of these methods employ high energy requirements, low material conversions and the use of hazardous chemicals. Hence, there is a growing need to develop eco-friendly nanoparticle synthesis methods. [More]
Nanotechnology in Cyprus: Market Report

Nanotechnology in Cyprus: Market Report

This article reviews the nanotechnology-related activities in Cyprus. It looks at organisations, companies and academic institutions that are active in this field and provides insights into their activities. [More]
Nanostructured Black Silicon

Nanostructured Black Silicon

Black silicon is a semiconductor material with a needle-shaped surface structure. It's similar to silicon but with a modified surface that has extremely low reflectivity and a high absorption rate of visible and infrared light. Black Silicon has helped researchers develop more efficient solar cells and it may also offer benefits for the medical sector. [More]
Nanotechnology in Saudi Arabia: Market Report

Nanotechnology in Saudi Arabia: Market Report

Research and development does not currently seem to be a focus area for Saudi Arabia. While their commitment is still quite frugal, it is increasing, which means that opportunities may begin to open up which may both reduce the brain drain and open up opportunities for more nanotechnology research.

Nanotechnology in Quantum Computing

Nanotechnology in Quantum Computing

The production of a working quantum computer has become a real possibility thanks to recent developments in the field nanotechnology but there is still a long way to go. [More]

What are Silver Nanowires?

Nanowires have a number of exciting properties which are not exhibited by 3-D or bulk materials. This is due to the fact that electrons within the nanowires are quantum confined and have energy levels that differ from that of the bulk materials. [More]
What are Graphene Nanoribbons?

What are Graphene Nanoribbons?

The successful fabrication of single layered graphene has generated a great deal of interest and research into graphene in recent years. One of the most recent advancements is the development of graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) layers of graphene with ultra-thin width of less than 50 nm. [More]
