Keithley Sponsors First Weblog for Nanotechnology Electrical Testing
Linda Bell, Publisher of "Nanotech Briefs," said she expects the new blog to be an important contribution to the emerging field of nanotechnology. "Engineers working in the rapidly changing disciplines of nanotechnology and MEMS need to stay abreast of the latest developments in their respective fields, and the Nanotest Blog is the ideal way for engineers to do that," said Bell. "With the support of Keithley, this Blog creates a center for those seeking to study and improve upon the latest test techniques in developing nano-materials," says Bell. "The ability to create accurate and repeatable measurements at the nano-scale level is critical to engineers seeking to develop these next generation materials."
“Engineers and researchers who are developing the next generation of materials and electronics, including those for the semiconductor industry, need to be kept informed of the latest breakthroughs and electrical testing technologies. The Blog offers a forum to share feedback on the many issues of making measurements on the nanoscale.”
"The Blog is a means to communicate advances in nanotechnology measurement technique and capability," according to John Tucker, Keithley's Lead Industry Consultant and Marketer for Nanotechnology. "Engineers and researchers who are developing the next generation of materials and electronics, including those for the semiconductor industry, need to be kept informed of the latest breakthroughs and electrical testing technologies. The Blog offers a forum to share feedback on the many issues of making measurements on the nanoscale."
Visitors to the Nanotest Weblog can post responses to particular items or post questions to other Weblog visitors. There is also a link to a library of white papers and articles as well as announcements of upcoming conferences and events of interest to the nanotechnology and MEMS test and measurement community.
Nanotechnology is an important new area of research that promises significant advances in electronics, materials, biotechnology, alternative energy sources, and dozens of other applications. Keithley Instruments is the world leader in the creation of electrical measurement solutions for nanotechnology. Nanotechnology requires the measurement of very small currents and voltages, capabilities that Keithley has pioneered for 60 years.
With their unequalled performance, Keithley's measurement tools enable nanotechnology researchers to observe phenomena that were impossible just a few years ago. Keithley is seen by many nanotechnologists as a key enabler of their work. These researchers depend on Keithley's measurement expertise and knowledge to help them unlock the secrets at the nanoscale level and accelerate the jump from the nanotech research lab to commercial production.
