Market leaders in temperature controlled microscopy, Linkam Scientific Instruments, are working with French instrument company, Xenocs, to provide the facility to perform X-ray experiments under changing temperature and/or tensile conditions. [More]
Magritek, a leading provider of compact NMR and MRI instruments, report on the use of their Spinsolve Benchtop NMR spectrometer in the undergraduate teaching program at Long Beach City College under the leadership of Dr Marlon Jones. [More]
Picosun Oy, the leading provider of high quality Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) equipment and solutions for industrial production, introduces significant improvements for MEMS (MicroElectroMechanical Systems) manufacturin... [More]
The Australian National University physicists have developed a water tractor beam offering an innovative method capable of confining oil spills, explaining rips at the beach or manipulating floating objects. [More]
New York University scientists have discovered that the low-temperature microscopic particles tend to melt with the rise in temperature to moderate levels and again recombine under high temperature. This invention paves the way for the development of smart materials capable of adapting to any new environment, and for providing detailed study of 3D printing technology. [More]
Scientists have combined hydrogen (H2) and deuterium (D2) to produce a new “Phase IV” material in which molecular interaction was found to be different than previously observed. This is the first time Anderson localization from vibrational energy has been noticed during interaction with different masses in a material. [More]
Researchers from the University of Michigan have created nanolobes, which are rounded crystalline structures without any facets. The design resembles starfish shell texture, which is almost impossible to create in the laboratory. The shape of the nanolobes as well as the technique by which they are made have potential applications such as a light guide in advanced LEDs, non-reflective surfaces and solar cells. [More]
The WuXi AppTec bulk cell culture production facility designed by Sartorius Stedim Biotech (SSB), a leading international supplier of pharmaceutical and biotech equipment, received an honorable mention in the 2014 Facili... [More]
The claim by microbiologist Derek Lovley and his colleagues at the University of Massachusetts Amherst that the microbe Geobacter produces nanowires has been the subject of a great deal of scientific debate over the last decade. Now a new collaborative study has provided strong evidence in accordance with their claims. [More]
Researchers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory have unravelled the mystery of the deformation mechanism found in metallic glasses. [More]
The DrySyn water manifold from Asynt optimises use of laboratory fume cupboard coolant use by converting a single water tap into three condensing streams and into one drain.
This novel lab&nbs... [More]
A group of researchers from the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard have designed large DNA crystals with an accurately defined depth and sophisticated features, paving the way for new and advanced nanodevices. [More]
Polymer composites with biomasses have been the trend for some time now, with wood plastic composites (WPC) probably the most common.
However, a new and exciting field of polymer composites are opening up: polymeric c... [More]
