Gold - Novel Technologies and Applications

We all recognise the outstanding beauty and value of gold. Yet it is easy to overlook the important role for gold arising from its unique technical properties. Gold, like other important industrial metals, has many unique physical and chemical attributes that mean it is the best, indeed the only, material for certain industrial applications. The exciting podcast helps to explain how the technical properties of gold are being exploited for new, leading-edge technologies like industrial catalysts, optical materials, nanotechnology and biomedical applications, including possible new anti-cancer drugs.

BLUGLASS – New Technology for Manufacturing LEDs

Using MOCVD to manufacture LEDs requires expensive sapphire substrates, whereas the BluGlass RPCVD process utilizes cheaper glass substrates. This combines with other lower cost input materials results in a cost saving of around 50%.

STREM CHEMICALS - Technology Diffusion for Commercialization of R+D Ideas

While Strem are a chemicals company they are constantly developing technologies of their own. In addition to this they are in close contact with academic and industrial researchers and coming across new technologies and processes all the time.
