There is no disputing graphene is strong. But new research by Rice University and the Georgia Institute of Technology should prompt manufacturers to look a little deeper as they consider the miracle material for applications.
In-situ nanoindentation study of phase transformation in magnetic shape memory alloys
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.
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.
Advanced Micro-Fabrication Equipment Inc. (AMEC) said today that a leading Korean manufacturer of memory ICs has placed repeat orders for its Single-Station Chamber Advanced Dielectric Etch tool, the Primo SSC AD-RIE™.
George Pharr, Chancellor's Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and Joint Faculty Scientist in the Materials Science and Technology Division at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has been named to the National Academy of Engineering. He becomes the fifth NAE member in the College of Engineering.
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.
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.
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’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.
