• This is to find and define common points, synergies and convergences between the different coating technologies and surface treatments. (eppm.com)
  • Therefore, one of the main advantages of the collaboration between technology centres is to detect and apply the existing convergences between treatments by means of nanotechnology on different surfaces and their characterisation techniques as a prospection for the development of these new hybrid materials.

  • Apart from the cases considered at risk for the general health status of the patient, implants placed in sites treated with bone regeneration procedures [ 9 , 10 ] may benefit from the surface treatments that create nanometric osteoconductive features. (hindawi.com)
  • He said: "his technique enhances the sharp features which are inherently present on high-tech structured surfaces such as edges, grooves and boundaries in a way which enables their detailed geometry and position to be better determined than previous methods. (warwick.ac.uk)
  • Also, transfer printing of Ag nanowires onto the surface of a fruit enables direct and rapid detection of pesticide residues on the surface using a SERS analysis. (kaist.ac.kr)
  • Based on the very close and complementary collaboration of three distinguished leading research groups, this book highlights recent advances in the field ranging from synthesis and fabrication of organic and polymeric materials, surface and interface science to advanced analytical methods. (wiley.com)
  • Two emerging consequences are the use of patterns and structures on surfaces, and complex forms, all of which have to be rigorously controlled in order to optimise such areas as lubrication, adhesion and optical performance. (warwick.ac.uk)
  • Another point of special interest of this collaboration has focused on detecting convergences when employing the characterisation techniques common in metals, wood, textiles, ceramics or polymers that determine the properties improvement in surface (tribological, sensorial, microbial, different functions).

  • In 2015, Titan Spine , a medical device surface technology company focused on developing innovative spinal interbody fusion implants, announced the appointment of Jim as the company's Senior Nanotechnology Specialist. (lifeboat.com)
  • The appointment followed the company's receipt of 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its Endoskeleton line of interbody fusion implants featuring its next generation nanoLOCK surface technology and precedes the company's full commercialization of the new line. (lifeboat.com)
  • Jim's role includes leading the educational initiatives to further demonstrate and communicate the scientific evidence supporting the advantages of Titan Spine's unique nanoLOCK surface technology. (lifeboat.com)
  • It can also facilitate the detection and characterization of defects on the surfaces. (warwick.ac.uk)
  • Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) is one of the most practical analysis techniques for molecular structure characterization and trace-amount detection due to unique fingerprint signals and large signal enhancement ratio. (kaist.ac.kr)
  • As an example of a near-term application, we demonstrate that Ag nanowires printed on the inner surface of a vial glass can enhance SERS signals, enabling direct and convenient detection of molecules dispersed in a solution at an extremely low concentration. (kaist.ac.kr)
  • The mission of the Surface and Nanoscience group is to be a centre of excellence for the modelling and analysis of surfaces and nanometre scale materials. (nanowerk.com)
  • The Center for Nanotechnology, chaired by Amy Madl, senior principal health scientist, specializes in assessing and understanding the impact of nanomaterials and nano-enabled products so that clients can maximize the societal benefits of these products while minimizing risk to humans and the environment. (nanowerk.com)
  • It thus addresses new concepts in micro- and nanofabrication, bio-nanotechnology, biosensors and the necessary compositional and structural analysis. (wiley.com)
  • With True Surface Microscopy we have made another technological leap which will enable our customers to explore new avenues in their scientific field" says Dr. Olaf Hollricher, Managing Director Research & Development. (nanotech-now.com)
  • Conversely, modulating surface features by nanotechnology could have the effect of decreased bacterial colonization. (hindawi.com)
  • In the 1990s, much focus was placed on topographical micrometric features, noting an increase of osseointegration, BIC, and resistance to applied loads [ 20 ] on sandblasted and etched surfaces. (hindawi.com)
  • This leads to the understanding that osseointegration could indeed be influenced by various surface features [ 21 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • The surface features an increased amount of nano-scaled textures that result in the up-regulation of a greater amount of osteogenic and angiogenic growth factors critical for bone growth and fusion as compared to PEEK and the company's previous surface. (lifeboat.com)
  • With the requirement for ever higher performance of smaller and smaller parts, emphasis is having to be placed on their surfaces in order to produce high-value products. (warwick.ac.uk)
  • Microbian evolution on a wide variety of surfaces can produce phenomena such as corrosion, dirt, smells and even serious hygiene and health problems. (nanotech-now.com)
