Nano-coatings for Scientific Research

Liquid repellent nano coating is a technology which allows surfaces to be liquid repellent without changing their look or feel. They can be applied to a wide range of products and can add significant value for product manufacturers and scientific researchers alike. With consumer products such as textiles for shoes or swimwear, or coatings for […]

Physics Nobel Prize 2010

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2010 was awarded jointly to Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov “for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene”. Graphene is a form of carbon. As a material it is completely new – not only the thinnest ever but also the strongest. As a conductor of electricity it performs as well […]

Another Stunning Graphene Experimental Surprise

Graphene, the extraordinary form of carbon that consists of a single layer of carbon atoms, has produced another in a long list of experimental surprises. In the current issue of the journal Science, a multi-institutional team of researchers headed by Michael Crommie, a faculty senior scientist in the Materials Sciences Division at the U.S. Department […]

OECD on Risks and Benefits of Nanomaterials

Innovation can bring benefits, but possible risks too. The emergence of nanotechnology, which manipulates barely visible materials for industrial purposes, is a case in point, and policymakers are taking a close look. All kinds of nanomaterials are now found in common household items, from sports gear and sunscreens to socks and dresses, from beds and […]
