Goodfellow Adds High Thermal Conductivity Silicon Nitride to Its Advanced Ceramics Product Range

With thermal conductivity of 100 W/mK, four times higher than standard silicon nitride, this material is emerging as a preferred insulating substrate for next-generation power modules, high-frequency circuits and LED mounting. [More]
Invisible Cloaks Could be Possible in the Future with Innovative Meta-Skin

Invisible Cloaks Could be Possible in the Future with Innovative Meta-Skin

Engineers at Iowa State University have created a flexible meta-skin that is capable of shielding objects from powerful radar waves. This stretchable and tunable meta-skin utilizes a row of tiny liquid-metal devices to trap and suppress the radar waves at a specific frequency, and shields objects against the sharp radar waves.

NIST and Collaborators Demonstrate Nondestructive Approach for Detecting Cracks in Ceramic Capacitors

NIST and Collaborators Demonstrate Nondestructive Approach for Detecting Cracks in Ceramic Capacitors

Medical implants and spacecraft can suddenly go dead, often for the same reason: cracks in ceramic capacitors, devices that store electric charge in electronic circuits. These cracks, at first harmless and often hidden, can start conducting electricity, depleting batteries or shorting out the electronics. [More]
