Nanoscale structures have properties that can’t be achieved in any other way, stemming from precise control over the structure’s composition and geometry. Unfortunately, simultaneously achieving high levels of control of both characteristics can be challenging. Bottom-up, self-assembly methods can carefully tailor the chemical makeup a nanoparticle, but are limited in their ability to control the shape or size of nanostructures build from these small components...
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a wearable, wireless sensor that can monitor a person’s skin hydration for use in applications that need to detect dehydration before it poses a health problem. The device is lightweight, flexible and stretchable and has already been incorporated into prototype devices that can be worn on the wrist or as a chest patch...
NanoMech, Inc., a leading nano-engineering and manufacturing company based in Northwest Arkansas has earned ISO 9001 certification. An important accomplishment for any company, ISO 9001:2015 is an internationally recognized standard that specifies requirements for a formal quality management system.
“The approval of ISO 9001 is one of the major milestones in the history of our corporation,” said NanoMech’s Chairman and CEO, James Phillips...
The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Advanced Manufacturing Projects for Emerging Research Exploration recently announced a funding opportunity (FOA) that includes a range of topics in advanced materials and processes, and explicitly includes a subtopic on Atomically Precise Manufacturing (APM). DoE has been soliciting SBIR projects in this space for several years now but this is the first AMO R&D Projects FOA in this space...
