Scanning Tunneling Microscopy of Ultrathin Zirconia (Austria)

PhD and Postdoc position

In our new SFB (collaborative research programme) on Functional Oxide

Surfaces and Interfaces we will study properties of and processes on

oxide surfaces with relevance to technological applications. The focus

of this position will be on zirconia (ZrO2) surfaces. The work will

start with growth of ultrathin zirconia films by oxidation of a

zirconium alloy or zirconium deposited on a more inert metal.

The zirconia films will be… Continue

The Truth About Nanoindentation Specifications

The competitive field of Nanoindentation measurement is commonly decided upon depth and load specifications. Competing Nanoindentation instruments list resolution capabilities from the Pico to the Micro ranges. Unfortunately, these specifications are sometimes intentionally misleading. When Depth Resolution is specified in the Pico range, it suggests that depth is controlled and measured at a hundredth of an Angstrom. Keeping in mind that an atom is between 62… Continue

NANO is an in many cases even in technical literature incorrectly used term. The Technical Committee 229 of ISO is deserving thanks for an exact definition with respect to particle size measurement in August 2008. (ISO/TS27687).

According to this definition only NANO-objects should be called NANO-particles if its three coordinate dimensions are all within the NANO-range of about 1 nm to 100 nm.

Regrettably even today many… Continue

Sony sees rollable large-screen OLED TVs in the future

Sony published an interesting interview with their display unit team about rollable OLED displays. Back in May (during SID 2010) Sony unveiled a new 4.1" rollable OLED display. In the interview, Dr. Kazumasa Nomoto reveals that Sony's end target is a rollable large-screen OLED TV: "The time will come when the very idea that an enormous black box (TV)was ever placed in rooms will seem strange.".

Sony also discusses the three new technologies that were developed just for this display:… Continue

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
