Gold Coating Over Etched Nanoscale Pattern Dims Glare

Gold Coating Over Etched Nanoscale Pattern Dims Glare

All that's gold does not glitter, thanks to new work by UC Irvine scientists that could reduce glare from solar panels and electronic displays and dull dangerous glints on military weapons. [More]
Scientists Employ Nanoindentation to Sample Initial Formation of Shear Bands in Metallic Glass

Scientists Employ Nanoindentation to Sample Initial Formation of Shear Bands in Metallic Glass

What do some high-end golf clubs and your living room window have in common? The answer is glass, but in the golf clubs' case it's a specialized glass product, called metallic glass, with the ability to be bent considerably and spring back into its original form. Your windows, as you know, aren't quite as forgiving of a sudden impact, and they shatter – they are brittle, as opposed to ductile, or more flexible products. [More]

Nanotextured, Silicon Micro-Cell Arrays Hold Promise for Mass Production of More Efficient Solar Cells

Nanotextured, Silicon Micro-Cell Arrays Hold Promise for Mass Production of More Efficient Solar Cells

Converting sunshine into electricity is not difficult, but doing so efficiently and on a large scale is one of the reasons why people still rely on the electric grid and not a national solar cell network. [More]

EV Group and ICON Develop Roll-To-Roll Thermal Nanoimprint Lithography Tool

EV Group (EVG), a leading supplier of wafer bonding and lithography equipment for the MEMS, nanotechnology and semiconductor markets, today introduced the EVG®570R2R—the industry's first roll-to-roll thermal nanoimprint lithography (NIL) tool. [More]
‘Waviness’ in Carbon Nanotube Forests Dramatically Reduces Their Stiffness

‘Waviness’ in Carbon Nanotube Forests Dramatically Reduces Their Stiffness

A new study has found that “waviness” in forests of vertically-aligned carbon nanotubes dramatically reduces their stiffness, answering a long-standing question surrounding the tiny structures. Instead of being a detriment, the waviness may make the nanotube arrays more compliant and therefore useful as thermal interface material for conducting heat away from future high-powered integrated circuits.

A*STAR IMRE and Partners Launch New Nanoimprint Foundry

A*STAR IMRE and Partners Launch New Nanoimprint Foundry

A*STAR’s new Nanoimprint Foundry will bridge the gap between laboratory-based nanotechnologies and real-world products. This is the first time that Singapore nanotechnology suppliers and manufacturers have been brought together to speed up productisation of nanoimprinting, a technology that imbues ordinary surfaces with unique properties for applications in sectors like consumer care, biomedical devices, optics, filtration, displays and maritime.

Nanojems Engraves First Million Digits of Pi on Sapphire Crystal with Gold

Nanojems Engraves First Million Digits of Pi on Sapphire Crystal with Gold

Nanojems, a Reno-based microfabrication firm, has just engraved the first million digits of pi on sapphire crystal with gold. The engraving contains 200 times more digits than any other known engraving and is a landmark feat for the never-ending constant. The characters are so small that two digits can be etched on the end of a human hair. [More]
