An innovative technique that combines tumor suppressor protein p53 and biomineralization peptide BMPep was successful in synthesizing hexagonal silver nanoplates, indicating an effective approach for regulating the nanostructure of inorganic materials.
Five years ago, there was a widespread discussion worldwide regarding third-generation solar cells that challenge conventional silicon cells due to a simple and inexpensive manufacturing process that required lesser energy.
Duke University scientists have been brewing up conductive ink-jet printer “inks” to print customizable, low-cost circuit patterns on any surface. To do this, they suspended tiny metal nanoparticles in liquids.
The world’s smallest transistor is now smaller than the AIDS virus. In the past 60 years, the industry has reduced the size of the central elements of computer chips to 14 nm. However, traditional methods are reaching their physical limits.
A versatile method to pattern the structure of nanowires has been developed by a team of Hokkaido University researchers. This new method provides a tool that will aid the development of novel nanodevices.
Manufacturers of computer chips constantly aim to pack more transistors into less space, however with the size of those transistors nearing the atomic scale, there are physical limitations on how small they are able to make the circuitry’s patterns.
Nanotechnology is widely considered to be the way of the future for electronics, medicine and many other scientific endeavours.
SUSS MicroTec, a leading supplier of equipment and process solutions for the semiconductor industry and related markets, announced the launch of the MA/BA Gen4 series today.
The George Washington University (GW) recently received multiple instruments from the Raith product portfolio to serve its interdisciplinary nanoscale research community at the new Science & Engineering Hall, and important results have already been achieved.
An innovative nano-lithography printing system has been installed at the University of Bath, making it the only institution in the United Kingdom that has this novel nano-scale patterning equipment. This capability enables the university to play a pioneering role in the advancement of next-generation manufacturing methods for nano-engineered semiconductors.
