A team of researchers from Harvard University and Zena Technologies, led by Kenneth B. Crozier, demonstrated that individual, vertical silicon nanowires can shine in all colors of the spectrum. The Si nanowires are fabricated via e-beam lithography and inductively coupled plasma reactive ion etching.
PhD student Peter Krogstrup from the Nano-Science Center at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen, developed a theoretical model to explain why and how nanocrystal wires (nanowires) form, in collaboration with researchers from CINAM-CNRS in Marseille.
Electrical energy can be generated from a temperature difference in a circuit with suitable materials. In simulations, ETH Zurich scientists show which materials are most likely to succeed in a thermoelectric process.
IBM (NYSE: IBM) Research is the first to measure the movement and processing of digital data as a magnetic pattern on nanowires 1,000 times finer than a human hair. Racetrack Memory uses the spin of electrons to move data at hundreds of miles per hour to atomically precise positions along the nanowire "racetrack."
Nanoco Group plc (AIM: NANO) produced a 1kg batch of red cadmium-free quantum dots (CFQD) for a major Japanese corporation, which triggers a US$2 million payment to Nanoco by the corporation.
To reflect its goal of driving commercialization of nanotechnologies, the NanoBusiness Alliance changed its name to the NanoBusiness Commercialization Association. The name change is meant to reflect the movement of nanotechnology from an era of R&D to an era of products and product integration.
Vendum Batteries (OTCBB: VNDB), a US-based battery technology development company, joined the Nano Knowledge Transfer Network (NanoKTN), a Government agency leading and supporting the commercialization of nanotechnologies in the UK.
BioNanomatrix Inc., a developer of nanoscale, single-molecule imaging and analysis platforms designed to reduce the time and cost needed to analyze the genome, has closed a $23.3-million Series B round of equity financing.
"We are optimistic that the high-tech tenant companies based at CNSE's STC will be expanding in the years to come, and we want to ensure that when those companies are ready, they have the ability and capacity to expand on the STC campus," said Ontario County Economic Developer Mike Manikowski.
