Picosun Oy, Finland-based global manufacturer of state-of-the-art Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) systems today announced a 400 % increase in new orders received during its fiscal Q1 (May to July 2010) on a year-on-year basis.
JEOL has introduced a unique Scanning Electron Microscope with optics that enable ultrahigh resolution imaging at low kV and high spatial resolution microanalysis. The Through-the-Lens System (TTLS) combines new objective lens and detector technologies with the proven JEOL in-lens Field Emission Gun. The TTLS is designed to enable imaging of a wide variety of samples, including magnetic materials. The model JSM-7001FTTLS LV also features low vacuum operation and a large specimen exchange airlock.
Dynasil Corporation of America has announced that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has approved seven of its Phase-II SBIR projects for awards, ranging from $750,000 to $1,000,000 each. The awards, totaling $6.2 million, are being made to its wholly owned subsidiary, Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc ("RMD"), to develop its state of the art nuclear sensors and instruments.
MesoCoat is pleased to announce that it has acquired exclusive commercial rights to the high density infrared surface modification technology IP Portfolio from UT-Battelle, LLC. This breakthrough surface engineering technology was developed over the last decade at the infrared processing center, part of the industrial materials division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Through technology transfer collaboration efforts and licensing of multiple patents, MesoCoat is commercializing this revolutionary technology which enables the application of coatings and cladding materials at rates 1-2 orders of magnitude faster, and with better quality than alternate processes such as laser or weld cladding or furnace processing.
Park Systems, the AFM technology leader and preferred nanotechnology solutions partner, launched a brand new website this month. The website, www.parkafm.com, is an interactive, visitor-focused site. Many of the design features of the new website were made in direct response to the requests received from customers around the world.
Analytik Jena AG has won two orders for the delivery to China of 20 atom absorption spectrometry devices.
Asylum Research, a technology leader in scanning probe/atomic force microscopy (AFM/SPM), announced today that it has delivered a dual system order for a Cypher™ AFM and an MFP-3D-BIO™ AFM to the University of Melbourne's Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Dr. Raymond Dagastine's group will use the Asylum AFMs to develop nano-scale experiments and theories to measure and predict interactions, collisions, and coalescence between droplets and bubbles that underpin innovative applications of foams and emulsions and other soft matter materials. The approach provides a "front seat" view of how drops or bubbles collide in solution and how the physical mechanisms are dependent on the types of molecules coating their interfaces.
NanoSight Announces Interactive Webinar on September 9th on the Characterization of Protein Aggregation
NanoSight, world-leading manufacturers of unique nanoparticle characterization technology will host an interactive webinar on the subject of the characterization of protein aggregation. It will be held on Thursday 9th September, 0700 PDT, 1000 EDT, 1500 BST, then again live, two hours later at 0900 PDT, 1200 EDT, 1700 BST.
The University of Southern California announced today that Michelle Povinelli, a member of the faculty of the Viterbi School of Engineering, has been recognized by MIT Technology Review magazine as one of the world's top innovators under the age of 35 for her research on the optical properties of nano-structured materials.
Imec and KLA Tencor have established a metrology method for optimizing the etch rate uniformity (ERU) in a transformer coupled plasma (TCP) reactor. The proposed metrology method makes use of PVx2 sensor wafers. For ion-assisted etch processes, the use of this PVx2-based method for ERU tuning results in lot-turn time savings of up to 80% compared to conventional etch rate uniformity tests.
A collaborative team of applied scientists from Harvard University and the University of Leeds have demonstrated a new terahertz (THz) semiconductor laser that emits beams with a much smaller divergence than conventional THz laser sources. The advance, published in the August 8th issue of Nature Materials, opens the door to a wide range of applications in terahertz science and technology. Harvard has filed a broad patent on the invention.
