Nitto Denko to Start-up Prototyping Centre in Singapore Research Institute


Nitto Denko Asia Technical Centre (NAT) will be expanding its Singapore base to include a prototyping centre in Singapore. The centre will be pioneered at A*STAR's Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) under a unique Lab-in-RI programme. NAT can leverage on existing ...


UV-transparent coating for image sensors


Image sensors as used in cell phones are partially color-blind. This is because of their coating, which prevents UV light from passing through. CMOS chips have as a result not been suitable for spectroscopy up to now. A new production process makes the coating transparent – and the sensors ...


SPECIM and Forschungszentrum Jülich sign contract for development of advanced hyperspectral imagers for vegetation research


SPECIM, Spectral Imaging Ltd announced a new project with Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany. The first target of the HyPlant project is to develop a new-generation push-broom hyperspectral imager capable of collecting seamless VNIR and SWIR data from 380 to 2500 nm in a single, compact ...


Out-sniffing bomb-sniffing dogs

Tel Aviv University researcher leads development of swift, small, highly reliable sensor to detect explosives


Dogs have long been called man's best bomb detector –– until now. A Tel Aviv University scientist leads a research team that has developed a powerful electronic sensor to detect multiple kinds of explosives –– including those used in the recent Yemeni bomb threat. Based on nanotechnology ...


Measuring the electrical properties of nano-crystals

UK scientists help to create standards for measuring electric materials on the nanoscale


The UK's National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is working to provide more reliable measurement of the electrical properties of materials used in nanotechnology – which could lead to much more accurate devices in the future. Scanning probe microscopy (SPM) won the Nobel Prize in 1986. It uses a ...


Sniffing out shoe bombs: A new and simple sensor for explosive chemicals


University of Illinois chemists have developed a simple sensor to detect an explosive used in shoe bombs. It could lead to inexpensive, easy-to-use devices for luggage and passenger screening at airports and elsewhere. Triacetone triperoxide (TATP) is a high-powered explosive that in recent ...


Capital for laser-based photoacoustics


High-Tech Gründerfonds and MAZ level one investing about EUR 550k in PAS-Analytik GmbH. The aim with this investment is to further develop the technology of laser-based photoacoustics and to push entry into the market for industrial and medical gas analysis. PAS-Analytik GmbH was established in ...


Researchers show how cells open 'doors' to release neurotransmitters


Like opening a door to exit a room, cells in the body open up their outer membranes to release such chemicals as neurotransmitters and other hormones. Cornell researchers have shed new light on this lightning-quick, impossibly small-scale process, called exocytosis, by casting sharp focus on ...


Radio chip and sensor in one


RFID technology is on the advance. But, up to now radio chips primarily supply data for the identification of products. Researchers have now developed a transponder which measures temperature, pressure and humidity. The chip with sensor function could revolutionize the applications ...


Nano antenna concentrates light

Intensity increases 1,000-fold in Rice lab's experiment


Everybody who's ever used a TV, radio or cell phone knows what an antenna does: It captures the aerial signals that make those devices practical. A lab at Rice University has built an antenna that captures light in the same way, at a small scale that has big potential. Condensed matter physicist ...
