Undergraduate Delves into Nanotechnology Research at UC’s Nanoworld Lab

A summer of research certainly paid off for Christian Lipa, a sophomore in mechanical engineering, who decided to take a step outside his comfort zone and delve into the world of nanotechnology (the study of tiny particles) in the University of Cincinnati Nanoworld Lab. [More]
Tortech Nanofibres Installs Additional Capacity for Manufacture of Nonwoven Carbon Nanotube Sheets

Tortech Nanofibres Installs Additional Capacity for Manufacture of Nonwoven Carbon Nanotube Sheets

Tortech Nanofibres, a subsidiary of Plasan, today announces the installation of additional capacity for the manufacture of its nonwoven carbon nanotube (CNT) sheet at its manufacturing facility. This will more than triple output once full commissioning is completed in the next few months and is an important step towards a full scale industrial manufacturing capability. [More]
