For the real time visualization of the dynamics of MEMS it is often inevitable to use high speed camera systems because of the optical enlargement. The micro diagnostic system MinVis, which consists of a miniaturized [...]
Colossal Storage Inc. has exclusive license patent rights on new ways of non - contact reading and writing with non destructive reading of information to a ferroelectric molecule. These methods will be used to develop [...]
Our nanotech answer to these basic industrial processes is not to make very small turbines or compressors, but instead to take advantage of the physics that occurs at very small sizes. In this case, instead [...]
Fast, accurate, and inexpensive identification of failed integrated circuits on electronic circuit boards presents a major challenge for the electronic testing industry. In this paper we describe research and development efforts in the application of [...]
Public concern about the safety of nanotechnology is growing. Whether rationally based, or not, that concern can impede research and commercialization in the nanotechnology industry. This risk parallels problems already encountered by the biotechnology industry, [...]
Dip Pen Nanolithography, DPN™, was discovered in the laboratory of Dr Chad Mirkin at Northwestern University leading to the founding of NanoInk, Inc. with a mission to develop, manufacture and advance the process of DPN [...]
Nanophase Technologies Corporation employs a new physical vapor synthesis technique to manufacture ceria-based mixed rare earth oxide nanomaterials. The mixed rare earth oxide nanoparticles are dense, discrete crystals. The compositions are solid solutions that remain [...]
The push towards miniaturization has created substantial interest in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). To date, most of the developments regarding MEMS technology have relied on monolithic fabrication and integration. The monolithic approach has successfully produced various [...]
X rays is ideally suited for non-destructively imaging micrometer and nanometer sized structures because of its large penetration depth and rich contrast mechanisms. In particular, projection-type x-ray microscopes are widely used in material science and [...]

The Step and Flash Imprint Lithography (S-FILTM) process is a step and repeat nano-replication technique based on UV curable low viscosity liquids. S-FIL uses field-to-field drop dispensing of the UV curable liquids for the step [...]
A broad patent position has been established that produces semiconductor wafers containing physically-deepened grooves, ridges and quantum-dots on particular crystal planes with perfectly spaced pitches of 0.9 to 5.4 nm determined by the inherent crystal [...]
After several decades spent largely in the research domain, MEMS-based products are finally being commercialized at a furious pace. These products can require extensive mechanical design and analysis capabilities, including: -3D construction and visualization; -material [...]
An overview of the types of UV laser processing as applied to the fabrication of miniature devices using advanced UV Excimer and UV DPSS lasers, will be presented. This discussion will include examples of high [...]
