Starfire Systems Inc. is pleased to announce the release of a new ultra-high temperature ceramic forming precursor.
Ceramic materials, known for their crack resistance, find applications in various industries, ranging from dentistry to aerospace engineering. Reinforcing these materials to enhance their safety and efficiency is a major area of research.
Electroceramics, including capacitors, are crucial parts of electronic devices. But any disruption to the crystalline structure of these electroceramics can alter their specific properties.
5G, or the fifth-generation technology standard for broadband cellular networks, is touted as having finally arrived for ultrafast download speeds, an end to dropped calls and buffering, and greater connectivity to advance autonomous vehicle development, remote surgery, and the Internet of Things.
Flash sintering is a ceramic processing technique which uses electric current to intensively heat the ceramic sample internally rather than using only external furnace heating. The process can lower ceramic processing temperatures and durations significantly, enabling ceramics to be co-processed with metals or other materials, and reducing energy use.
A research team in Korea has developed a ceramic fuel cell that offers both stability and high performance while reducing the required amount of catalyst by a factor of 20.
Scientists at Rice University have developed a “defective” catalyst that makes the synthesis of hydrogen peroxide from oxygen simple.
Scientists of Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) have advanced the technology of high-speed sintering for optical ceramics (Nd3+:YAG), i.e. active elements generating laser emission in the near-infrared wavelength range (1.06 µm) for cutting the edge microelectronics and medicine.
NGK INSULATORS, LTD. based in Nagoya, Japan, announced that it has won an order for NAS batteries for storing electrical energy for the Tanegashima Space Center of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency. The order was received from Kyudenko Corporation, which is headquartered in Fukuoka, Japan.
With the importance of non-contact environments growing due to COVID-19, tactile electronic devices using haptic technology are gaining traction as new mediums of communication.
