Today the Baker-Polito Administration announced a $3 million grant to Northeastern University to establish the Advanced Nanomanufacturing Cluster for Smart Sensors and Materials (“ANSSeM”), a consortium of private manufacturing companies and tier-one research universities working on new methods to create smart sensors and other revolutionary materials using ‘nanoscale’ printing processes...
Massachusetts Awards $3 Million to Northeastern University to Drive Development of Smart Sensors and Nanoscale MaterialsPress Releases
A perpetual quest of manufacturers and viewers is for ever-brighter colors and better images for flat-panel displays built from less expensive materials that also use less electricity.
An intriguing method discovered by Sandia National Laboratories researcher Alec Talin and collaborators at the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology at the National Institute of Standards and Technology may be that next step...
Liquid crystal devices (laptops, cameras, mobile phones, TVs, monitors, etc.) became an important facet of modern society. The future progress in the development of these devices relies on new liquid crystal materials capable to fulfill strict industrial requirements. The combination of liquid crystals and very fine materials called nanoparticles is a “hot” topic in modern liquid crystal science...
Research scientists at INM - Leibniz Institute for New Materials are presenting a new process that, in a single step, allows manufacture of conductive paths that are just a few micrometers in width on flexible foils. As a result, new designs for appliances with flexible or even rollable displays will be possible.
In order for touchscreens on smartphones and tablets to function, microscopically fine conductor paths are required on their surfaces...
