Marcy Nanocenter Site Receives Wet Lands Permit from Army Corps of Engineers

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has issued a Section 404 permit for the Marcy Nanocenter site, enabling the next phase of the Nano Utica initiative. This includes the construction of a 450 MM enabled wafer fabrication campus and significant local job creation that will further solidify New York’s global position as a leader in semiconductor manufacturing and nanotechnology.

Researchers Analyze Yolk-Shell Structures with Sulfur Nano-Nuggets to Create Better Lithium-Ion Batteries

Researchers Analyze Yolk-Shell Structures with Sulfur Nano-Nuggets to Create Better Lithium-Ion Batteries

Tucked in a small laboratory at the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, a team of scientists from the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences (SIMES) is making and testing new types of lithium-ion batteries. Their goal: create a battery five times better than the ones we use today. [More]
Etched Nano-Size Teeth Make Mobile Display Surfaces Anti-Reflective

Etched Nano-Size Teeth Make Mobile Display Surfaces Anti-Reflective

If you've ever tried to watch a video on a tablet on a sunny day, you know you have to tilt it at just the right angle to get rid of glare or invest in a special filter. But now scientists are reporting in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces that they've developed a novel glass surface that reduces both glare and reflection, which continue to plague even the best mobile displays today.
