  • Written by Haydale

Haydale, the company focused on the commercialisation of graphenes and other nanomaterials, has announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire EPL Composite Solutions (EPL), a specialist in the design, development and commercialisation of advanced composite polymer materials both in the UK and overseas. This acquisition will maximise EPL’s access to the nano-enhanced composites market and is expected to significantly boost Haydale’s sales potential. Haydale’s patented low temperature plasma process: Nanomaterials are introduced into the rotating reactor drum and interact with the plasma generated by the electrode at centre.

- How will the human-machine interface deliver care and treatment in the future? -

Healthcare delivery in the modern setting is increasingly complex, and technology will bring with it Human-Machine interfaces that will increase the dependency between Clinicians and Machines.

A Clinicians great skill is to 'Sense the Patient' when making life changing decisions.
The iDoctor, the 'Bionic Clinician', will support the human Clinician enabling better decision making improving patient care and treatment.

This event examines the breakthrough technologies that will enable this vision

  • Written by Innovnano press release

Innovnano’s unique and cost-effective AZO sputtering targets for the production of transparent conducting oxides

Innovnano (, an expert manufacturer of high performance ceramic powders, has developed a range of nanostructured AZO (aluminium-doped zinc oxide) specifically for the production of high density sputtering targets. These AZO sputtering targets provide researchers with a highly optimised and cost-effective tool for the development of next generation transparent conducting oxide (TCO) thin films, applicable to numerous research areas ranging from solar cells to conducting glass. Innovnano’s AZO sputtering targets have high electrical conductivity, enhanced mechanical and thermal properties and improved target lifetimes, ideally designed to aid researchers in advancing thin film research.Advancing thin film research with nanostructured AZO

New Webinars on Novel Technologies and Solutions for Electronics

A series of free webinars will keep you ahead of exciting developments in industrial nanoelectronics.

The EU project EuroTraining has just released 5 new webinars in order to make high quality training in the field of micro/nano-electronics available for European industry and research.

The webinars last between 30 and 60 minutes and cover following topics:

- Why nanotechnologies in Electronics

- The Micro for Nano (M4N)

- Conduction Mechanisms in Molecules

- Molecular Electronics

- Molecular QCA

The EuroTraining project was launched in January 2013 and includes five partners: COREP from Turin (Italy) and FSRM from Neuchâtel (Switzerland), both specialized in continuous education and technology transfer, the technical universities of Budapest (Hungary) and Denmark and the research organization CEA-LETI in Grenoble (France). The project is supported by the EC and runs for three years.
