Auger Nanoprobe – The Most Powerful Probe in the Nanoworld!

Zhongrui_Li_Web_Banner_600x320Abstract: Due to the rapid progress in nanoscience and nanotechnology, a powerful tool which can characterize the device and structure at nanometer level is highly demanded. The instrument to analyze the composition of thin films or patterned structures and detect contaminants or residues is critical to the design of new materials, facilitating manufacturing processes, and increasing product quality/yield. Optical methods and EDX analysis have found their limitations in detecting the continued shrinking of device size and critical defect size, while Auger nanoprobe exhibits its irreplaceable… Read More

Thomas Frost Receives Best Paper Award for Achieving a HQ QD Red Laser

Frost-bestpaper-600-320Lasers emitting in the 600nm wavelength range have important applications in medicine, optical information processing, plastic fiber communication systems, optical storage, and full color laser displays and laser projectors. Red lasers, which stand at the upper end of the wavelength spectrum compared to blue and green, are currently realized, but with different materials than used in the current research.

Thermal Vision: Graphene light detector first to span infrared spectrum

web_banner_600x320The first room-temperature light detector that can sense the full infrared spectrum has the potential to put heat vision technology into a contact lens. Unlike comparable mid- and far-infrared detectors currently on the market, the detector developed by University of Michigan engineering researchers doesn’t need bulky cooling equipment to work. “We can make the entire design super-thin,” said Zhaohui Zhong, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering. “It can be stacked on a contact lens or integrated with a cell phone.” Read the full article… Read More

The promise of microchannel artificial lungs

Joseph_Potkay_Web_Banner_600x320Abstract: Lung disease affects over 200 million people worldwide and kills over 2 million people annually. In the United States, it is the only major disease with an increasing death rate. Artificial lung technologies have recently been used to provide respiratory support for lung-disease patients. However, treatment and outcomes with current artificial lung systems remain less than optimal due to limitations in portability, biocompatibility, and gas exchange. Microchannel artificial lungs, on the other hand, promise to enable a new class of truly portable artificial lungs… Read More
