NBMC awarded contracts to 12 organizations from…

NanoAvionics aims for 30 percent US-market share for smallsats

Columbia IL (SPX) May 25, 2021 NanoAvionics has laid out its ambitious growth and business development plans for the USA via its existing facility in Columbia, Illinois. The smallsat bus manufacturer and mission integrator will develop the only satellite manufacturing facility in the state to become its main hub in…

Nano flashlight enables new applications of light

Boston MA (SPX) May 05, 2021 In work that could someday turn cell phones into sensors capable of detecting viruses and other minuscule objects, MIT researchers have built a powerful nanoscale flashlight on a chip. Their approach to designing the tiny light beam on a chip could also be used…

Nanostructured device stops light in its tracks

Boston MA (SPX) May 04, 2021 Understanding how light waves oscillate in time as they interact with materials is essential to understanding light-driven energy transfer in materials, such as solar cells or plants. Due to the fantastically high speeds at which light waves oscillate, however, scientists have yet to develop…

NanoAvionics adds satellite twin to Aurora Insight global wireless spectrum mission

Columbia SC (SPX) May 04, 2021 NanoAvionics, a leading smallsat bus manufacturer and mission integrator, has successfully established communications with “Bravo,” the second nanosatellite the company built and launched for Aurora Insight, a U.S. business analytics company for the wireless industry. “Bravo” was sent into low Earth orbit (LEO) on…

Measuring the Moon's nano dust is no small matter

Washington DC (SPX) Apr 29, 2021 Like a chameleon of the night sky, the Moon often changes its appearance. It might look larger, brighter or redder, for example, due to its phases, its position in the solar system or smoke in Earth’s atmosphere. (It is not made of green cheese,…

DNA robots designed in minutes instead of days

Columbus OH (SPX) Apr 26, 2021 Someday, scientists believe, tiny DNA-based robots and other nanodevices will deliver medicine inside our bodies, detect the presence of deadly pathogens, and help manufacture increasingly smaller electronics. Researchers took a big step toward that future by developing a new tool that can design much…

Cotton wool proves effective in separating single-wall carbon nanotubes

Kazan, Russia (SPX) Apr 26, 2021 The project was kickstarted in 2017 when a delegation of YTC America (subsidiary of Yazaki Corporation) visited Kazan Federal University. During the talks, YTC suggested that KFU participate in developing effective methods of separating single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) into metallic and semiconducting specimens. This…

AFRL approves Cooperative Research And Development agreement for silicon photonics

Wright-Patterson AFB OH (SPX) Apr 06, 2021 The Air Force Research Laboratory recently approved a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement between its Nanoelectronic Materials Branch and Iris Light Technologies. The collaboration will be working to develop hybrid silicon lasers. Sometimes called the “holy grail of optoelectronics,” these miniature lasers are…
