Thailand flag flew high at nano tech 2016

The15th International Nanotechnology Exhibition & Conference (a.k.a nano tech 2016) opened its doors to the public this morning at Tokyo Big Sight, Tokyo Japan. This is 6th year that Thailand have participated in what is considered the "world's largest event for nanotechnologies". The Thai delegation consisted of representatives from 5 companies (KEEEN Ltd., Thai Biothetic International Research Co.,Ltd, Smart vet Co.,Ltd, Thai Techno Glass Co.,Ltd., and IRPC) and researchers from NANOTEC, TISTR, and TRF. Leading the Thai delegation was Prof. Pairash Thajchayapong, Chairman of NANOTEC Executive Board and Prof. Sirirurg Songsivilai, Executive Director NANOTEC. H.E. Mr. Bansarn Bunnag, Thai Ambassador to Japan, his wife and some embassy staff also attended the opening ceremony. A total of 16 exhibitions by both private sector and research agencies under the theme "Thailand Nanotechnology: For Healthy Life by Nature and Green" will be on display during the 3 days event. In addition, the Thai delegates will also be involved in one-on-one business matching activities, attending technical seminars, and building networking opportunities for business and research collaborations. Over 500 companies from 25 countries are participating in this mega event and it is expected that the conference will attract over 50,000 visitors during the 3 days. IMG_2514 IMG_2524 IMG_2538

Flat-packed unit brings creativity to AFM

The first atomic force microscope (AFM) images on non-conducting surfaces marked a feat of ingenuity and technical skill bordering on the improbable. Thirty years on, and the same technique capable of nanoscale resolution has now been flat-packed into an affordable unit that can be assembled by 11-year-old school children. The Strømlingo flat-packed atomic force microscope is an open-platform nanoscale imaging device that can be both readily assembled and modified, thereby opening up the technology for the user’s creativity to come to play....

Graphene-like boron made for the first time, claim researchers

The first boron films that are just one atom thick have been produced by a team of researchers at several institutes in the US. A preliminary study of the ultrathin material called "borophene" suggests that it displays a variety of fascinating and potentially useful properties, including direction-dependent conductivity. However, unlike graphene – which comprises a single layer of carbon atoms – the boron films are not free-standing and are instead fixed to a metal substrate.....

MoS2 monolayers make GHz transistor

Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin say that they have fabricated flexible radio-frequency transistors from molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) with the highest ever intrinsic cut-off frequency of 5.6 GHz and power gain of 3.3 GHz. The devices, which are grown by chemical vapour deposition on large sheets of silica, could find use in a wide range of wireless communication applications, especially in wearable technologies, "smart" patches and the internet of things (IoT)........

Nanospin microscope acquires images in record time

Scanning probe microscopy is ideal for studying the nanoworld because it allows researchers to measure the topographic, electronic, optical and magnetic properties of a sample depending on the type of probe employed. Spin-based quantum probes, for example, are particularly good for making such measurements, but until now have only been able to acquire images relatively slowly. Now, a team at the University of Melbourne in Australia and the Ecole Normale Supériere de Cachan in France has developed a new approach to scanning quantum probe microscopy based on a nanospin ensemble that allows for quick imaging of samples, even biological ones, with nanometre-scale resolution...........
