Swift and accurate identification of ultra fine structures, defects, scratches or dust particles in incident light demands a high-performance stereomicroscope, trained eyes and top quality illumination. At the SMT (Systems Integration in Microelectronics) fair in Nuremberg, Leica Microsystems is presenting its innovative LED illumination modules for stereomicroscopes, which offer optimum illumination even for difficult material samples.
Under the term nanotechnology, specialists develop and realize coatings or objects with thicknesses or dimensions of only a few nanometers. Due to their special, physical properties, the coatings or objects that are only a few atomic layers thin have particular advantages.
Plasticity in certain semiconductor materials at the nanoscale is actually linked to phase transformation rather than dislocation nucleation, as previously thought. This is shown by the results of an international resear...
Apex is the next generation nano-mechanical test instrument providing industry-leading sensitivity, control and unmatched performance. The tool comes with two interchangeable modules - Nano indenter (NH-3) and Micro indenter (MH-2). The modules can be easily interchanged for Nano and Micro range mechanical tests.
Chung-Souk Han, Ph.D., assistant professor of civil engineering at North Dakota State University, Fargo, has been named a recipient of the Faculty Early Career Development award (CAREER) by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Agar Scientific is pleased to announce that they are now in a position to supply the Kleindiek micromanipulator to the UK and Irish markets.
Asylum Research scientists will be presenting their recent work in Piezoresponse Force Microscopy (PFM) at the upcoming MRS Spring Meeting, Session JJ, in San Francisco, CA on April 15-17, 2009.
Asylum Research will sponsor a free atomic force microscopy (AFM) Workshop on February 12 and 13, 2009 in the Pettit Building/Microelectronics Research Center (MiRC) on the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) campus. The Workshop will include three keynote talks by Georgia Tech researchers on Nanogenerators (Dr. Jinhui Song), on Heterogeneous Lipoprotein Assembly and Structure (Dr. Todd Shulchek), and on Microgels on Surfaces (Dr. Toni South).
AVS and Asylum Research have announced that Asylum's MFP-3D™ NanoIndenter has been selected as one of the top five products exhibited at the AVS International Symposium in October. Asylum's MFP NanoIndenter is a true "instrumented" indenter and is the first AFM-based indenter that does not use cantilevers as part of the indenting mechanism.
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Nanocomposites and Nanoporous Materials VIII" report to their offering.
Selected, peer reviewed papers from the 8th International Symposium on Nanocom...
