Bad Gastein, Austria
This course is application-oriented. Typically, participants come from companies or
institutes, which want to apply nanomaterials or to step in into this field.
Within three days, the participants get more knowledge about nanomaterials as
compared to a few months of tedious literature studies. The instructor,
Prof. Dieter Vollath is author of the first textbook on nanomaterials.
The number of participants…

Researchers from the A*STAR Institute of Materials Research and Engineering and the National University of Singapore have developed an improved design for a Graphene based field-effect transistor (FET). The new device includes an additional silicon dioxide (SiO2) dielectric gate below the graphene layer. This allows for simplified bit writing by providing an additional background source of charge carriers and paves the way towards nonvolatile Graphene-based memory… Continue

Scanning probe microscopy plays an important role in different fields of nanotechnology. The main objectives of this open position are a) to develop and compare new 3D sensitive probes and probing techniques in addition to the conventional raster scan methods and b) to develop simulations for description of the measurement signals in dependence of the relevant interaction forces between probing tip and 3D nanostructures.
These investigations target at an in-depth understanding and… Continue

It turns out that Samsung is not content with the Super AMOLED Plus displays - and are already working on the next-gen AMOLEDs. These will use a laser deposition method (LITI) - which will enable Samsung to make cheaper OLEDs that will have a much higher resolution (over 300ppi). It's also an important step towards OLED TVs commercialization:… Continue

Kaneka announced that it will start accepting orders for OLED lighting panels on March 22nd, 2011 in Japan (and later in April in Europe). Kaneka will offer OLED square panels in give colors (warm white, red, orange, blue and green). The panels will be dimmable (in the range from 1,000cd/m2 to 5,000cd/m2).
Kaneka's OLED panels will cost around ¥2 million (approx $24,000) per square meter - and the company believes that the price will drop to ¥200,000 ($2,400) next year and to ¥50,000… Continue

bTendo and STMicroelectronics announced an agreement to jointly develop the world's smallest MEMS-based Laser-Beam-Steering projector for mobile devices. This projector will be based on bTendo's dual-mirror laser projector technology and ST's MEMs, video-processing and semiconductor technologies. Continue
The new projector module will be less than 2.5cm3 in volume and below 6mm in height. It will offer focus-free images and will include a video-processing chip and built-in MIPI…

Back in May 2010 Dupont announced that they can print a a 50-inch OLED TV in under two minutes, using their new printable OLED materials and a custom-made printer from Dai Nippon Screen Manufacturing Co. Today we learned that Dupont estimates that their new OLEDs will be cheaper than LCDs - by about 40%! (Regular OLEDs cost about twice as much as LCDs to manufacture).… Continue

A friend of mine, András Paszternák, runs a thriving online nanotech community called Nanopaprika (he’s in Hungary, hence the name). He started the community (for which I am a Scientific & Advisory Board member) when he was doing his PhD and it has grown rapidly into one of the most targeted niches on the Web with lots of partnerships across the nano community in academia, industry and publishing. Nevertheless, András is impatient and dissatisfied with the pace of… Continue
