Minus K Congratulates to the Following Winners of Minus K’s 2016 Educational Giveaway

Minus K Technology has to-date granted over $45,000 of its superior performing patented Negative-Stiffness low-frequency vibration isolators to the following universities in for their U.S. Educational Giveaway

Arizona State University - School for Engineering or Matter, Transport & Energy - Mechanial Engineering

Vibration isolator will be used for measuring near-field radiative heat transfer between two flat parallel surfaces with submicron vacuum gap distances.

Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo - Physics Department

Vibration isolator for use with their in-house interfacial shear rheometer to measure 2D systems as models of soft amorphous solids like foams, concentrated emulsions (e.g. mayonnaise), and bulk metallic glasses.

Northwestern University - Materials Research Center

Vibration isolator will be used with their semi-automatic probe station used to measure electronic devices enabling long-term stability testing of thousands of components such as capacitors, resistors, transistors and others fabricated from many types of new materials.

Stanford University - Applied Physics Department

Vibration isolator will be used to replace the pneumatic legs (additional units to be purchased) of their optical table supporting a Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) plus Ultra High Vacuum chamber with cryogenic system.

University of Michigan - Mechanical Engineering Department

Vibration isolator for teaching two new hands on experimental nanotechnology training classes using Atomic Force Microscopy, Nanoscale Metrology and Laser Trapping Interferometry.

University of Tennessee - Nuclear Engineering Department

Vibration isolator will be use to get very high resolution neutron imaging for next generation energy storage technologies.

Minus K believes that assisting research at the college level is essential for the continued advancements within all disciplines. Granting this equipment our way of supporting academia.
