Nanotechnology Still Holds Huge Untapped Potential for the Industry

In nano on April 21, 2008 at 3:35 am

(Nanowerk News) Finland is a forerunner in nanotechnology, and the fast-growing field has already produced strong results. The 70 million euro Tekes FinNano programme, currently in its third year, has launched companies and new business throughout the country. Applications of nanotechnology are in widespread use in the key areas of Finnish industry.

New Artificial Material Paves Way To Improved Electronics

In nano on April 21, 2008 at 3:09 am

The new material, a superlattice, which has a multilayer structure composed of alternating atomically thin layers of two different oxides (PbTiO3 and SrTiO3), possesses properties radically different to either of the two materials by themselves. These new properties are a direct consequence of the artificially layered structure and are driven by interactions at the atomic scale at the interfaces between the layers.

“Besides the immediate applications that could be generated by this nanomaterial, this discovery opens a completely new field of investigation and the possibility of new functional materials based on a new concept: interface engineering on the atomic scale,” said Dr. Dawber.
