In 2004, a single layer of graphite known as graphene was synthesized for the first time via mechanical exfoliation of graphite. This discovery, for which Novoselov and Geim were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010, has ushered in a 'graphene frontier' with worldwide interest in exploiting their intriguing potential for technological applications in fields such as nanoelectronics and energy storage. The primary method that is used to fabricate large-scale transparent graphene films is chemical vapor deposition (CVD). However, this requires high-temperature processing and relatively long deposition times. Furthermore, this precludes the deposition of graphene onto temperature-sensitive substrates.
Elmarco introduces the updated Nanospider™ ("NS") LAB – the first product update to the world’s best selling nanofiber research tool which was originally launched in 2005 at the Nanotech exhibition in Tokyo, Japan. Designed for experimental work on nanofiber material and applications, this new product incorporates years of customer feedback and product support. With a smaller footprint and lower cost, the NS LAB now makes use of the stationary wire electrode first introduced into Elmarco’s industrial lines in 2010.
"We’ve listened to the market and to our customers," said Kaz Nomoto, CEO of Elmarco Ltd, and responsible for business activities across Asia.
Carbodeon NanoDiamonds PTFE Coating doubles surface durability and reduces friction by up to 66 percentPress Releases
Surface coatings specialist Carbodeon has released a new PTFE/NanoDiamond coating with twice the durability and up to 66 percent less friction than current products. The new coating has huge potential to cost-effectively reduce CO2 output and fuel demand, as well as to improve equipment lifespan, in fields such as the automotive, aerospace and industrial machinery industries.
New surface coating enables cost-effective CO2 and fuel reductions in machinery NanoDiamond particles are hardwearing, small, and offer very low surface friction.
The administration has recently announced the latest awards for Manufacturing Innovation Institutes (MIIs), a public-private partnership intended to boost advanced manufacturing while strengthening U.S. capabilities in defense, and creating sustainable economic impact and jobs through enhanced global competitiveness, and higher paying domestic jobs.
