thumbnailA novel microscale selective laser sintering (μ-SLS) process for the fabrication of microelectronic parts
One of the biggest challenges in microscale additive manufacturing is the production of three-dimensional, microscale metal parts with a high enough throughput to be relevant for commercial applications. This paper presents a new microscale additive manufacturing process called microscale selective laser sintering (μ-SLS) that can produce true ...

thumbnailTooth-on-a-chip is new dental development
Organ-on-a-chip devices are being developed for use in researching disease progression and prevention as well as drug therapies. An international research team has added to these biomedical uses of microfluidics with a tooth-on-a-chip designed to advance the understanding of biomaterial effects on live dental pulp cells. The device mimics a ...

thumbnailVortex-induced vibration wind energy harvesting by piezoelectric MEMS device in formation
The experimental measurements have successfully demonstrated the benefits of placing micro-scale VIV wind energy harvesters in a formation. However, the amount of information that we can gain from the experimental measurements is limited due to several technical challenges. Firstly, noticeable difference in behaviour is observed between ...

MEMS Market Expected to Soar in Coming Years
Revenue for so-called high-value microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years, as a result of socio-environmental issues, such as global warming and aging populations, according to market research firm iSuppli Corp. High-value MEMS revenue is projected to grow nearly 29.7% in 2010, reaching $1.6 billion ...

thumbnailChemist develops a way to produce new materials for solar panels
The article was published in the journal Nanoscale. The vast majority of organo-inorganic hybrid materials used today in solar power are three-dimensional perovskite-like semiconductors that contain lead in their structure. However, the use of such materials creates problems due to their toxicity. Double perovskites, or "elpasolites," can serve ... 2019-12-23 - Nanotechnology
