Sputtering Targets for Thin Film Manufacturing in Touchscreen Panels – An Interview with Jai Subramanian

In this interview, Jai Subramanian from H.C. Starck talks to AZoM about the demands of the mobile device market on touch screen technology, and how their speciality alloys for sputtering targets help to improve the performance and reliability of touch screen devices. [More]
Deposition Systems for OLED Technology Research

Deposition Systems for OLED Technology Research

Organic light emitting diode or OLED displays form the major area of focus in electronics conferences or trade shows. For many years, scientists have known that specific organic materials exhibit electroluminescent characteristics. [More]
Testing Equipment for Space & Satellite Hardware in Space Simulation Systems

Testing Equipment for Space & Satellite Hardware in Space Simulation Systems

The international space station is revolving around the Earth just 400km above its surface, which means it is spinning in low orbit. The station hovers in the atmospheric layer called the thermosphere, which may contain some amount of atmospheric molecules. [More]
Thin Film Deposition for Photovoltaic Research using Perovskite

Thin Film Deposition for Photovoltaic Research using Perovskite

Perovskite is a type of mineral that is abundantly available on Earth (Figure 1). It was initially discovered in 1839 at the Ural Mountains, and since then has become the focus of intense photovoltaic studies. [More]

Using Plasma Treatment for the Underfill Process in Flip Chip Packaging

Flip chip packaging technology has become a sophisticated and highly demanded packaging technique due to its high performance, heat dissipation properties, speed and I/O density. [More]
Changing the Rules of Attraction for Non-Magnetic Materials - An Interview with Dr. Cespedes

Changing the Rules of Attraction for Non-Magnetic Materials - An Interview with Dr. Cespedes

A research team from the University of Leeds recently developed a technique for magnetizing non-magnetic metals by altering their quantum interactions. AZoM spoke to the lead member of this team, Dr. Oscar Cespedes, about the research. [More]
Maximizing the Accuracy of Measurements of Absolute Molecular Weight for Synthetic Polymers

Maximizing the Accuracy of Measurements of Absolute Molecular Weight for Synthetic Polymers

The performance and physical properties of polymers are mainly dependent on the characteristics of polymer molecules themselves. The behavior of the materials is influenced by the molecular weight and molecular weight distribution, molecular size and structure. [More]
Advanced Ceramic Materials for Severe Service Applications

Advanced Ceramic Materials for Severe Service Applications

There is no appropriate definition for severe service. It may be necessarily considered as operating conditions, in which a valve replacement is costly or lowers the process capacity. [More]

Using Hydro Sight Imaging to Determine Whether a Sample is Milling or Dispersing

Various factors need to be considered when attempting to obtain an accurate measurement of a sample’s particle size distribution. [More]
Using the Kinexus Rotational Rheometer for In-Situ Characterization of the Rheological Properties of UV Curable Materials

Using the Kinexus Rotational Rheometer for In-Situ Characterization of the Rheological Properties of UV Curable Materials

Photopolymers are normally made up of oligomers, monomers and photo-initiators that cross-link to create a network structure on exposure to light, normally in the visible or the ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum. [More]
