AMETEK EDAX, Inc., a leader in X-ray microanalysis and electron diffraction instrumentation, has added a new 160 mm2 detector to its Elite T Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) System for Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEM).
A team led by scientists at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory explored how atomically thin two-dimensional (2D) crystals can grow over 3D objects and how the curvature of those objects can stretch and strain the crystals. The findings, published in Science Advances, point to a strategy for engineering strain directly during the growth of atomically thin crystals to fabricate single photon emitters for quantum information processing.
Dynavac is pleased to announce that it was named 2019 Subcontractor of the Year for Region 1, New England by the Small Business Administration (SBA). This coveted accolade is awarded to small businesses that have provided the government and industry with exceptional goods and services as subcontractors. The nomination for the award was made by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Lincoln Laboratory in recognition of Dynavac’s contributions in expanding their environmental test capabilities.
Palomar Technologies, a global leader in total process solutions for advanced photonics and microelectronic device packaging, announced that SST Vacuum Reflow Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Palomar Technologies, has launched the SST 8300 Series Automated Vacuum Pressure Soldering System. The series, consisting of single and triple chamber systems provides a highly reliable solder connection with a better than industry standard void rate – a key to delivering high-reliability power modules for automotive and commercial applications.
