Graphene is an atom-thick sheet of carbon that loses symmetry in the transition from a flat shape to a rippled one. Based on the physics of graphene stretching/compression, scientists are searching for clues to the Higgs boson particle, which is currently being sough in the CERN Large Hadron Collider.
Cornell University researchers have unveiled striking, atomic-resolution details of what graphene "quilts" look like at the boundaries between patches, and have uncovered key insights into graphene’s electrical and mechanical properties.
IEDM 2010, which took place early in December, included papers on all aspects of advanced semiconductor manufacturing. Techcet's Michael A. Fury reviews several papers he saw at IEDM covering Nobel-Prize-garnering nanomaterial graphene.
The funding will enable C3Nano to scale up its hybrid carbon nanotube (CNT) based transparent electrode ink and film for use in devices such as touch screens, OLED devices, PV panels and flexible displays and to collaborate with customers.
IBM said that its inventors received a record 5896 US patents in 2010, marking the 18th consecutive year it has topped the list of the world's most inventive companies, and the first time a company has received >5000 patents in one year in the US.
Displaybank's latest report covers graphene technology patents registered in Korea, U.S., Japan, and Europe by August 20, 2010. Valid patents corresponding to graphene manufacturing and applications are culled from 891 items of raw data.
CVD Equipment Corporation (Nasdaq: CVV) announced that new orders received during January 2011 totaled approximately $9.3 million dollars. These orders are for both production and research equipment in the fields of solar, LEDs and nanotechnology.
NEi Software debuts its free finite element analysis (FEA) mobile application, NEi Stratus, experimenting with how and when finite element analysis solutions can be delivered to engineers. NEi Stratus will be available by the beginning of the second fiscal quarter and will be initially offered at no charge.
