Latest Nanoelectronics Stories
US researchers said Sunday that new artificial "skin" fashioned out of flexible semiconductor materials can sense touch, making it possible for robots to be able to grip eggs but be strong enough to hold a frying pan as well.
TAIPEI, Taiwan, Sept.
Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a new class of electronic logic device in which current is switched by an electric field generated by the application of mechanical strain to zinc oxide nanowires.
Breakthrough discovery enables nanoscale manipulation of the piezoelectric effect.
Bioprobes offer first intracellular measurements with a semiconductor device.
A new technology enabling tiny machines called micro electromechanical systems to 'self-calibrate' could make possible super-accurate and precise sensors for crime-scene forensics, environmental testing and medical diagnostics.
NIST researchers grow nanowires made of semiconductorsâ€”gallium nitride alloysâ€”by depositing atoms layer-by-layer on a silicon crystal under high vacuum.
Processes which lend materials new characteristics are generally complicated and therefore often rather difficult to reproduce.
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., July 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Strasbaugh (OTC Bulletin Board: STRB), a leading provider of equipment and tools for advanced chemical mechanical planarization (CMP), prime wafer polishing, and grinding equipment for device and wafer manufacturing, announced today that it has engaged E-Dot Technology, a CMP service and support company in Taiwan R.O.C., to represent Strasbaugh.
Surface tension isnâ€™t a very powerful force, but it matters for small things â€” water bugs, paint, and, it turns out, nanowires.
