Veeco Instruments Inc., today announced the release of its latest generation of industry-leading SP products for backend semiconductor metrology. The Wyko(R) SP9900(TM) Surface Profiling System performs critical measurements that support high yield and device reliability for advanced high-density interconnect (HDI) packages.
Placing a film of silicon nanoparticles onto a silicon solar cell can boost power, reduce heat and prolong the cell's life, researchers now report.
Dow Corning has turned to renewable forms of energy to help power one of its largest manufacturing sites in Europe. More than 1,000 square meters of solar panels, installed on the roof and facades of office and production buildings, are expected to generate the amount of energy needed to satisfy the annual electricity needs of 35 households.
A new chemical compound which could remove the need for patients to undergo certain invasive diagnostic tests in the future has been created by scientists at Durham University.

Global warming isn't the only heat scientists are feeling. Another area in which heat flow is becoming crucial is the field of molecular electronics, where long-chain molecules attached to tiny electrodes are used to transport and switch electrons.
Two staff members in the School of Chemistry at University of Bristol have won Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) industrially sponsored awards.
By combining the capabilities of several telescopes, teams of scientists, including University of Massachusetts Amherst astronomers, have spotted extremely bright galaxies hiding in the distant, young universe.
Most people think of Sir Isaac Newton as the father of gravity.
But for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory physicist Henry Chapman and his colleagues, Newton's 'dusty mirror' experiment served as a launching pad for them to keenly watch the X-ray induced explosion of microscopic objects.
Nikon Instruments has introduced the LV-UDM Universal Design Microscope, a breakthrough universal microscope platform able to meet the demands of the academic and industrial fields.
With the on going demand of highly efficient light source, extremely long life hours of source are required. DOMINANT Semiconductors' SPNovaLED product range has proven track record to produce this ideal light source in various lighting applications such as architecture and general lighting.
The world's largest bolometer camera for submillimetre astronomy is now in service at the 12-m APEX telescope, located on the 5100m high Chajnantor plateau in the Chilean Andes. LABOCA was specifically designed for the study of extremely cold astronomical objects and, with its large field of view and very high sensitivity, will open new vistas in our knowledge of how stars form and how the first galaxies emerged from the Big Bang.
JDSU has taken a color-generating cue from nature. The company, a leading enabler of broadband and optical innovation, today introduced ChromaFlair ColorShift Glitter, a new color-shifting flake that gives paints, coatings, plastics, textiles and packaging the ability to exhibit a wide range of hues when viewed from different angles.
