Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft More material could be saved when manufacturing wafers in future. Ultra-thin saws made of carbon nanotubes and diamond would be able to cut through silicon wafers with minimum kerf loss. A new method makes it possible to manufacture the saw wires. You can’t saw without producing sawdust – and that can be expensive if, for example, the “dust” comes from wafer manufacturing in the photovoltaic and semiconductor industries, where relatively high kerf loss has...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Silicon nanostructures are used in everything from electronics to energy storage, but their production process is complex and costly. However, engineers from Oregon State University have identified a compound sitting in every kitchen that could reduce production costs and boost mass production of the tiny structures: table salt. According to a recently published report in the journal Scientific Reports, sodium chloride can melt and...

Kaolinite is a mineral with the chemical composition Al2Si2O5(OH)4. It is a layered silicate mineral, with one tetrahedral sheet linked through oxygen molecules to one octahedral sheet of alumina octahedra. It is also known as china clay and kaolin (高嶺土 in pinyin: gao1 ling3 tu3), named after Gaoling ("High Hill"), Jingde Town, Jiangxi, China. It is a soft, earthy, usually white mineral (dioctahedral phyllosilicate clay), produced by the chemical weathering of feldspar. In...
