Development of serial entrepreneurship in nanotechnology industry Despite repeated declarations by state officials about support and the need for the development of high technology, the real innovation activity in the Russian market is low. The introduction of new technologies of the generation of innovative companies startups – may allow if not to reverse, then at least to change things for the better. In this regard, such concepts as "startup factory", "startup studio", "serial entrepreneurship," "innovation conveyor" are introduced into use. One of the main ideologists of the transition to new models of work is Denis Kovalevich, CEO and one of the shareholders of TECHNOSPARK Nanotechnology Center from Troitsk, which is a member of the network of nanotechnology centers of the Rusnano Fund for Infrastructure and Educational Programs.
From mechanical processing of wafers to laser and plasma systems Japanese DISCO Corporation is the undisputed leader in solutions for grinding, polishing and cutting of the wafers. The fact that it holds the record for the number of received SCQI (Supplier Continuous Quality Improvement) and PQS (Preferred Quality Supplier) Awards from Intel Corporation eloquently testifies to the level of the equipment and service of the company. The headquarters of the DISCO is located in Tokyo. About 4 thousand employees work for the company and subsidiaries. DISCO’s capitalization exceeding 20 billion JPY. Karl Heinz Priewasser, CEO of the European division of DISCO, told us about the advanced developments of the company.
Profile measurements of complex-shaped parts using scanning nanohardness tester The component parts of the mechanisms having curved surfaces require strict shape control. To implement this operation, devices based on contact (probe) or non-contact (optical) methods can be used. In this paper, profiles of molds used in HPHT diamond growth were measured using the contact profilometry method implemented in NanoScan-4D scanning nanohardness tester.
Methods of nanoscopy in study of carbon materials and biopolymers With the aim of establishing the relationship between the local structure of surface of carbon and polymer materials and of their electrophysical properties, it has been developed a device for combined atomic force microscopy and scanning capillary microscopy that allows to study the morphology and properties of 2D nanoscale structures and also to conduct their controlled deposition.
Analysis of defects in carbon-carbon composite materials using digital microscope The use of carbon composite materials with unique thermal, mechanical and erosional properties offers great opportunities for the development of rocketry, aviation, space technology, engineering, metallurgy and shipbuilding. This paper considers methodology of control of surface defects in Argolon – 4DL carbon composite material by use of hardware and software system based on digital microscope.
Scanning probe microscopy of local chemical reactions in deposited thin films Implementation of the scanning capillary microscopy mode in the scanning probe microscopes opens new features in the control of local chemical reactions.
VIII conference of NTSR: all aspects of development and application of nanotechnology VIII annual conference of Nanotechnological society of Russia (NTSR) was held on 30–31 March in the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation and Mendeleyev University of Chemical Technology of Russia. A wide range of problems in materials science, biotechnology, development of microelectronics and instrumentation was considered.
Ten of best innovative products of VacuumTechExpo 2017 As it was previously reported, in the framework of the XII International exhibition of vacuum equipment VacuumTechExpo 2017, which took place from 11 to 13 April in Moscow, a competition "The best innovative product in the field of high technologies" was held. The winners of the competition are 10 innovative products that reflect modern trends in the global and domestic vacuum equipment and technology.
NTSR: Agronanoindustry consortium for innovation project management in agribusiness Under the auspices of the Nanotechnological Society of Russia the Agronanoindustry consortium, which provides complex support of innovative projects in the field of agribusiness at all stages of their life cycle, is created.
Localized microreactor deposition of thin films and nanostructures as new approach to investigation of chemical vapor deposition The paper analyzes the current state of the chemical vapor deposition (CVD). The basic problem of the technology is described and the fundamental reason for its existence is analyzed. The paper demonstrates a constant deficit of the experimental data on the results of CVD, as well as inadequate approaches to experimental research. All of this leads to the poor solution of the optimization problem of thin film deposition with desired physical and chemical parameters. We are firstly proposing to use a microreactor CVD. The definition of microreactor CVD is formulated in this paper, and the basic properties of the technology are described.
Accounting of features of changing of material properties in technology of silicon nanostructures The features of change of physical properties of the structure elements when reducing their size to nanoscale and the prospects for using these effects in microelectronics technology are discussed.
