nanotimes 10-07/08 :: July/August 2010

Dear Sir/Madam,

Our (summer) edition of nanotimes is live now at:

Plain text (Blackberry) version live at:

A few weeks ago I was in Nuremberg and visited the German location of
Konarka Technologies, Inc., a U.S. manufacturer of third generation
photovoltaic modules. For this summer (double) edition we spoke to Alex
Valenzuela, Vice President European Business Development at Konarka. We
got a very interesting insight about one of the best companies worldwide
operating in this sector. Konarka's product, Power Plastic(R) uses
nanotechnology and organic chemistry to create the thinnest and lightest
module in the world while offering opaque and semi-transparent panels
in four colours.
Besides the interview, we can offer you some interesting tech news in
this edition. The Company E Ink [page 24] expands the capabilities of
reflective displays with Pearl, its next generation display technology.
Pearl has the whitest reflective displays in the industry, and a
contrast ratio now approximately 50% greater than today's products. And,
there's good news for electric vehicles [page 8]: U.S. researchers will
explore both cheaper metals and the more stable phosphate in place of
oxide in batteries. Their lithium manganese phosphate mini battery held a
little more than 150 milliAmp hours per gram of material, higher than<
other researchers had been able to attain.

Plus, we will reprint some really amazing photos from the Carl Zeiss
Nano Image Contest. All users of ZEISS particle beam systems can submit
their most beautiful photos. The website is available for submissions
until September 12th.

If we can be of any further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.

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
