Solution-Based Nanomaterials Advancing the Performance of Thin-Film Transistors, Circuits, and Sensing Systems

Expert Reviews
While thin-film transistor (TFT) devices and circuits have existed for decades now, mostly as switching circuit arrays for addressing pixels for display applications, the emergence of flexible and printed sensor device applications have renewed the emphasis for high performance TFT integrated circuits and systems. Common functions for most sensor systems include signal amplification, and analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) prior to data storage or transmission to conventional electronics, which tend to require custom interface designs for standardized silicon chips. Diverging from traditional silicon electronics...

Nanoparticles Accelerate and Improve Healing of Burn Wounds

Highlights
Skin thermal burns are a complex and major source of morbidity, mortality and healthcare expenditure in the United States, with 486,000 patients treated for burn injury each year. Given the range of causes, from fire associated injury to water scalding, patients often present with multiple and complex burns – wounds that often worsen and expand over the first few days do to the associated underlying inflammation and injury.
"Though the impact of these injuries is large, our current treatment armament falls short, with gold standard treatments lacking evidence to support their use, or even worse, may even delay wound healing as was recently elucidated with silver sulfadiazine," Dr. Adam Friedman...

Nano-C Receives EPA Approvals for Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes

Press Releases
Nano-C, Inc. received clearance from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to manufacture and sell Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWCNT) for a wide range of applications.  Nano-C worked extensively with the EPA through the TSCA Premanufacture Notice (“PMN”) process to develop effective environmental, health and safety protocols for the production and use of SWCNT.  This follows PMN clearances that Nano-C has received earlier for manufacturing fullerene and fullerene derivatives.  Nano-C worked with Mr. John V. Massingale of Greenwich Chemical Consulting, a leading authority on TSCA...

Aculon Launches NanoProof Series for PCB Waterproofing

Press Releases
Aculon’s proprietary surface modification technology treats a PCB to be repellent to water and/or oil while maintaining its full operating functionality.
Until now water-resistance product offerings generally fall into two categories: conformal solution based hydro/oleophobic coatings that repel fluids but require some level of masking or “keep-out” areas, and vacuum-deposited coatings (which is a batch process and also require masking) such as parylene-based treatments...
