As far as engine parts are concerned, mineral oil lubricants help safeguard them from wear, and this effect is improved by the addition of polymer nanoparticles to the lubricating oil.
PI is introducing a new series of direct-drive, ball bearing rotary stages to supplement their A-62x series of air bearing spindles. The V-62x stage family is designed for 24/7 applications that require high precision motion with eccentricity and flatness deviations below 1 µm and high stiffness
Light-harvesting (LH) supramolecules, which appear in a variety of structural configurations, are essential for photosynthesis in plants and some microorganisms. These LH molecules have not yet been created artificially.
Recently, at Lund University in Sweden, physics researchers were successful in building small solar radiation-collecting antennas—nanowires—using three varied materials that are a better fit for the solar spectrum than the silicon solar cells available at present.
In a recent article published in the journal Nature, researchers use intense, sub-cycle light transients to generate optical field emission of electron pulses from tungsten nanotips to directly analyze the emission kinetics in real time.
A paper published in the journal ACS Nano showed that for a frictional system solely experiencing structural aging, the macroscopic frictional response comes from the interaction among surface roughness and molecule movement inside adsorbed monolayers.
In a paper published in the International Journal of Extreme Manufacturing, it was demonstrated that GHz burst mode femtosecond laser pulses could be used to create unique two-dimensional (2D) laser-induced periodic surface structures on silicon.
A recent study has reported the development of a biodegradable, injectable, and mechanically fragmented nanofiber-hydrogel composite (mfNHC), loaded with adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) that could be used to treat Crohn's disease.
A team of scientists exposed oxidized MXene films to very brief high-frequency electromechanical vibrations, leading to the efficient removal of the oxide layer and allowing their electrical and electrochemical performance to be recovered.
Researchers studied the K+ distribution on cleft mica surfaces using low-temperature and non-contact atomic force microscopy (AFM) in ultra-high vacuum (UHV). Their results could impact how 2D materials are used in electronics.
With some careful twisting and stacking, MIT physicists have revealed a new and exotic property in “magic-angle” graphene: superconductivity that can be turned on and off with an electric pulse, much like a light switch.
Global semiconductor developer BluGlass Limited has launched its first suite of gallium nitride (GaN) laser products for customer purchase at leading industry conference, SPIE Photonics West, in San Francisco, USA.
Researchers from the National Graphene Institute (NGI) at The University of Manchester and the École Normale Supérieure (ENS), Paris, illustrated the Hebbian learning in manmade nanochannels, where the channels exhibited short-and long-term memory.
Neurons are the fundamental units of the brain and nervous system, the cells responsible for receiving sensory input from the external world, for sending motor commands to our muscles, and for transforming and relaying the electrical signals at every step in between.
Agnitron is pleased to announce it will be building an additional A300 MOCVD system for the III/V Optoelectronic market for a multinational customer. The customer is a current customer of Agnitron’s parts and...
