Technology Development Pathways: Case Studies from the National Nanotechnology Initiative

September 15, 2017 - 10:02am
Workshop/TrainingWednesday, November 1, 2017 - 12:00pmWashington, DC The Technology Development Pathways workshop will showcase application areas where nanotechnology has had commercial impact. Keynote presentations will highlight the pathways companies have taken to get from research to commercialization. Afternoon panel discussions will focus on specific steps of the development pathway, such as scale up and quality control/ measurement systems. Building on these successes, conversations at the workshop will explore remaining technical challenges or innovations needed to fully exploit the commercial potential of nanotechnology over the coming decades. While the primary focus will be to share best practices from the private sector, Federal Government representatives will also participate, enabling attendees to learn of ongoing research, agency needs, and funding opportunities. This event will support the goals of the Sustainable Manufacturing: Creating Industries of the Future Nanotechnology Signature Initiative.

Stanford Advanced Materials (SAM) is a global supplier of a series of pure metals, alloys, ceramics and minerals such as oxides, chlorides, sulfides, oxysalts, etc. Our headquarters was established in 1994 in Irvine, California, USA to provide high-quality rare-earth products for research and development (R&D) purposes. To meet the increasing demands for rare-earth products and other materials, we increased both the variety and the scale of our materials to serve not only our R&D customers but also downstream manufacturers in the e.g. 23661 Birtcher Dr. Lake Forest, CA 92630

MEMS Testing & Reliability 2017

June 22, 2017 - 12:20pm
Workshop/TrainingTuesday, August 1, 2017Santa Clara, California MEMS and sensors of all types are used in countless applications, but all sensors must go through testing and reliability checks before being integrated into products. This workshop focuses on the current and emerging processes used to test MEMS and sensors. What are the latest technologies, equipment and tools being developed for testing? What are the challenges facing the testing segment of the sensor supply chain? What factors are driving the industry for new solutions? What new methods or processes are making the testing of sensors quicker, more cost-effective and more efficient? We hope you will join us as we answer these questions and discuss other exciting reliability topics with industry experts and research leaders. Networking sessions and exhibits will complement speaker presentations and topics. Workshop Topics This full-day workshop will provide attendees in-depth presentations, as well as networking and discussion opportunities, about the latest MEMS testing technologies and applications with topics such as: Market trends and future industry projections Testing equipment, tools, and methodologies Front-end production equipment, tools, and processes Packaging equipment, tools, and developments Challenges and opportunities, including supply chain and ecosystem perspectives “Pure play” foundries vs. platform-based design approaches, IDM vs. fabless approaches Cost management and reduction Scaling, yield improvement, rapid prototyping, and high volume production.

ConferenceMonday, December 4, 2017 to Thursday, December 7, 2017Hong Kong We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 3rd International Conference on Surfaces, Coatings and Nanostructured Materials – Asia (NANOSMAT-Asia) to be held at the City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong during 4-7 December 2017. NANOSMAT is an established name in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology conferences. The first ever NANOSMAT conference was organised and held in Portugal in 2005. NANOSMAT conferences provide a unique platform for discussing key aspects of materials-related Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The maiden NANOSMAT-Asia was held in Wuhan, China during March 2013. The second NANOSMAT-Asia was held in Kayseri in Turkey in 2015. NANOSMAT-Asia is a biennial event and it attracts delegates from academia, industry and research institutes to network, exchange ideas and gain new insights on the forefront of materials, processing and nanotechnology related applications. The event will also host an exhibition. One of the highlights of NANOSMAT-Asia will be the plenary lecture by some Nobel Laureate. During NANOSMAT-Asia in 2013 Nobel Laureate Professor Dr Peter Grunberg (Germany) delivered the plenary lecture.
