On Thursday, January 26, Meyer Tool & Mfg., Inc. was featured on the Nightly Business Report’s (NBR) segment discussing the state of manufacturing in the United States and the difficulties involved in locating skilled employees.
Cryoguard Corporation, a CSA CSM, launched a new website on January 5, 2012. Visitors to http://www.cryoguard.com will find a wealth of new product information, along with a “News” page covering cryogenic shipping and storage.
Oxford Instruments Nanoscience (OINS) has introduced the MercuryiTC cryogenic temperature controller.
FSI International, Inc., a leading manufacturer of surface conditioning equipment for microelectronics manufacturing, announced that a leading device producer has placed orders for multiple ANTARES® CryoKinetic Cleaning Systems, further broadening the platform’s installed base.
Air Products has announced a price increase on liquid and bulk helium.
Retired UK technician Ian Miller has received an MBE (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) for services to ultralow temperature physics at Lancaster University.
Working with an international team, three physicists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory have helped to demonstrate the feasibility of a new kind of particle accelerator that may be used in future physics research, medical applications and power-generating reactors.
A new image from NASA’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) shows a complex distribution of interstellar dust and stars in the Orion nebula.
New evidence this week supports a theory developed five years ago at Rice University to explain the electrical properties of several classes of materials -- including unconventional superconductors -- that have long vexed physicists.
Cryogenic testing is complete for the final six primary mirror segments and a secondary mirror that will fly on NASA's James Webb Space Telescope. The milestone represents the successful culmination of a process that took years and broke new ground in manufacturing and testing large mirrors.
Two teams of physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermilab and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have independently made the largest direct measurements of the invisible scaffolding of the universe, building maps of dark matter using new methods that, in turn, will remove key hurdles for understanding dark energy with ground-based telescopes.
