Scientists from Japan have devised a technique to develop two materials, where each material is formed of three graphene layers.
There are many possibilities for computing created by nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids. Researchers from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have worked with international collaborators to demonstrate reliable programming of a cobalt grid at room temperature.
The FT-MTA03 Micromechanical Testing and Assembly System is a highly versatile testing instrument for the accurate quantification of mechanical properties and dimensions/geometry in the micro- and nanoscale.
Nanomechanics Inc., a leading provider of innovative tools designed to enable users to understand, evaluate, and test the mechanical performance of materials at the micro- and nano-levels, is set to launch a new monthly webinar series on Wednesday, June 22.
ZEISS announces the new Ultra Load Stage for ZEISS Xradia Ultra 3D X-ray microscopes (XRM). Xradia Ultra Load Stage uniquely enables in situ nanomechanical testing -- compression, tension, indentation -- with non-destructive 3D tomographic imaging. For the first time, researchers will be able to image the evolution of structure in 3D under load down to 50 nm resolution. This new capability applies to a wide range of interests, covering both engineered and natural materials.
Insects are full of marvels – and this is certainly the case with a beetle from the Tenebrionind family, found in the extreme conditions of the Namib desert. Now, a team of scientists has demonstrated that such insects can collect dew on their backs – and not just fog as previously thought.
At the 2014 MRS Fall Meeting and Exhibit, Bruker today introduced the NanoForce Nanoindenting and Nanomechanical Testing System to enable new discoveries in nanoscience. Nanomaterials are now found not only in research but increasingly in the product design cycle, and are playing a prominent role in industry.
This unique report addresses the applications and technologies of printing, curing and key integration equipment that is enabling printed electronics.
Since 2006, when NASA's Stardust spacecraft delivered its aerogel and aluminum foil dust collectors to Earth, a team of scientists has combed through the collectors in search of rare, microscopic particles of interstellar dust.
Slot waveguide is a specific light-guiding structure with a property to enhance the optical field in a nanometer scale void of low refractive index (RI) material embedded between higher RI material rails. Typically, slot waveguides have been fabricated from high refractive index inorganic dielectrics or semiconductors, such as silicon or silicon nitride, and they operate in the near infrared (NIR) wavelength region.
