e.g. 3M Scotch-Weld Instant Adhesive was recently responsible for a Guinness World Records-setting feat, lifting an 8.1 metric ton (17,857 pound, 2990 PSI) forklift in the air for one hour.
Bridgelux Inc., a developer and manufacturer of LED lighting technologies and solutions, announced that Kaistar Lighting (Xiamen) Co., Ltd. has agreed to invest $25 million in the company. Bridgelux will use the equity investmentto further accelerate research, development, and production of LED chip and packaging technology for general illumination applications.
GE Global Research presented at the APS' 2012 March Meeting new research findings on its nanotextured anti-icing surfaces.
Graphene Laboratories Inc. presented their new expanded product line at the American Physical Society March Meeting in Boston, USA. Graphene Laboratories has significantly expanded their product line since their last appearance at a 2011 APS Meeting. The latest products include: CVD Graphene Coatings on various dielectric substrates, Graphene Paper, Reduced Graphene Oxide, Ultrafine High Surface Area Graphene Nanoplatelets, and Continuous Graphene on Foil, and 3D Graphene Foam. The 3D graphene is grown on nickel or copper foam, and the metal may then be etched away leaving a free-standing, porous graphene structure. The graphene foams have been found to be valuable for chemical sensing and energy storage.
Hitachi Chemical Co., Ltd. has recently developed a new large-scale synthesis process for CNTs.
Konica Minolta has successfully developed a high-accuracy inkjet head capable of 1-picoliter drop size.
In January, Luxtera opened Silicon CMOS Photonics process and CMOS Photonics device library to Optoelectronic Systems Integration in Silicon (OpSIS), a foundry service that provides access to optoelectronic integrated circuits to the community at large, at a modest cost.
Merck sells its electrolytes business for high-performance batteries to German BASF.
METACLAY, Russia, has launched the first production in Russia of nanosilicates and polymer nanocomposites incorporating those nanosilicates.
MiaSolé, a leading manufacturer of copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic solar panels, has secured $55 million in funding to drive its next wave of growth.
NanoGuardian(TM), a division of NanoInk(R), Inc. that delivers on-dose brand protection solutions to fight illegal diversion and counterfeiting, signed a multi-year agreement with a Top 10 global pharmaceutical company to supply its On-Dose NanoEncryption(TM) technology and Closed-Loop Protection(TM) market monitoring program to help ensure the safety and integrity of the company's products.
Nextreme Thermal Solutions announced that its thin-film thermoelectric technology has achieved a 60.1°degC (140.18deg F) temperature difference between its cold and hot sides at an ambient temperature of 24.7deg C (76.46deg F), bringing it on par with the performance of bulk thermoelectric technology.
Oxford Nanopore Technologies presented for the first time DNA sequence data using its novel nanopore "strand sequencing" technique and proprietary high performance electronic devices GridION and MinION.
Surrey NanoSystems has raised third round funding of GBP4.5 million (US$7.1m) - one of the largest amounts secured by any UK semiconductor-focused company in the last year - from a consortium led by New Wave Ventures.
Verticle, Inc. announced the mass production of hexagonal-shaped LED chip Honeycomb(TM).
