HENDERSON, NV, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- AmeriLithium Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: AMEL; "AmeriLithium" or "the Company") is pleased to announce making public the latest reports from its geophysical examination of the Company's Paymaster Canyon Lithium brine project in Nevada, USA.
A technique originally, applied to monitor the flow of contaminants into shallow groundwater supplies, has been repurposed to monitor carbon dioxide pumped deep underground for storage.
The unique properties of thin layers of graphiteâ€”known as grapheneâ€”make the material attractive for a wide range of potential electronic devices.
University of Maryland physicists have shown that in graphene the intrinsic limit to the mobility, a measure of how well a material conducts electricity, is higher than any other known material at room temperature. Graphene, a single-atom-thick sheet of graphite, is a new material which combines aspects of semiconductors and metals.
By Lee, Chiapyng; Kuo, Yu-Lin Refractory metal nitride thin films have been widely developed as the diffusion barriers for the aluminum or copper interconnects in integrated circuits. This study reviewed the evolution of diffusion barriers in copper metallization.
- A pivoted catch designed to fall into a notch on a ratchet wheel so as to allow movement in only one direction (e.g. on a windlass or in a clock mechanism), or alternatively to move the wheel in one direction.
