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.

  • Written by piezosystem jena press release

Ultra-short pulsed lasers are no longer used mainly in the laboratories of basic researchers. They are an important part in the industry for cutting, surface finishing and pattern recognition and also in medical science. In medical science amongst others they are in place for the detection of cancer cells. Specialized microscopes combined with the ultra-short pulse laser reach a higher resolution. Therefore it is possible to differ healthy cells from cancer cells.

  • Written by Thomas Swan press release

Company brings forward timing of graphene scale-up.

Today, Thomas Swan announced plans to bring forward the scale-up of their Elicarb® Graphene products. Originally scheduled for year-end 2014, the first integrated kg/day process will now be completed by September 2014. Due to the excellent progress made in process development and the high level of commercial interest in graphene products the change in schedule was recently approved by the Thomas Swan board.“Reliability and quality in carbon nanomaterials” – existing carbon nanotube plant at Thomas Swan, Consett.
