Ormocer-based lighting eliminates peripheral colour effects

Researchers will be demonstrating novel nanotechnology lighting technology and also a sound-emitting varnish at nano tech 2010 in Tokyo

Optical strain gauges test composites over millions of cycles

HBM has improved its K-OP optical strain gauges so they are suitable for up to 10million test cycles with an alternating strain of +/-5.000um/m

Eco-polyamide is manufactured partly from castor oil

Rhodia's new Technyl Exten resin uses polyamide 6.10 produced in part from castor oil, yet it still offers excellent material properties

Novel applications for carbon-based nanotechnologies

Futurecarbon will use the 2010 Hanover Fair to demonstrate its Carbo e-Therm electrical heating coating and Carbogran carbon nanotube granulate product

New technique to reduce defects in metal injection moulded parts

Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute are using neural networks to work towards zero-defect production of metal injection moulded components

Process developments create opportunities for ceramics

Ceramics offer properties that are not generally available from metals, plastics or composites, but ceramic components can be difficult to source, especially if time is of the essence. Alistair Rae reports

Shark-based painted surface cuts aircraft drag

A team of researchers has developed a way to finish aircraft exteriors with a nanoparticle-loaded paint that reduces drag and, therefore, fuel consumption

New source for ceramic and glass microcomponents

Goodfellow is now able to supply standard and customised ceramic and glass microcomponents for scientific and industrial applications

Non-reflective nanocoating is applied during moulding

Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute have developed a non-reflective surface finish that is applied to plastic components during the moulding process

Stainless steel hollow bars

Combination of hollow bar and Sanmac stainless steel means cutting speeds and feed rates can be increased

Novel mechanism indicates when cracks start in plastics

Researchers have developed a new technique by which users are made aware of cracks in critical plastic components by the emission of odours
