Exactly Nano - Reference materials for nanotechnologies

Reference materials for nanotechnologies

BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing lists the world-wide available nano-scale reference materials on its website

BAM has listed the world-wide commercially available nano-scale reference materials on its website as well as links to manufacturers and vendors: http://www.nano refmat.bam.de

Nanotechnologies stand at the threshold to industrial use. Standards help convert innovations into marketable products. BAM intensively supports the international standardization for nanotechnologies (for example in ISO/TC 229 Nanotechnologies or CEN/TC 352 Nanotechnologies). New requirements arose for calibrating the highly sensitive measurement procedures used in nanotechnologies.

About 65 nano-scale reference materials of different categories (step grating, nanoobjects, porosity...) are currently listed under the above link. Certified reference materials (CRMs) of the highest quality are included and these are usually offered by the national and European metrological state institutes (PTB/BAM, IRMM, NIST, AIST,...). Reference materials offered by companies or research institutes where the data necessary from a metrological point of view may be incomplete are also included. The compilation is being updated regularly.

A data sheet in pdf format can be downloaded for each reference material. The sheets contain quantitative data on the mean value and uncertainty, information about the area of application and links to the respective manufacturer/vendor.

Suggestions, criticism or comments to the reference material list are welcome.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...

Im Focus: On the way to a biological alternative

A bacterial enzyme enables reactions that open up alternatives to key industrial chemical processes

The research team of Prof. Dr. Oliver Einsle at the University of Freiburg's Institute of Biochemistry has long been exploring the functioning of nitrogenase....

Larsen C Ice Shelf rift finally breaks through

A one trillion tonne iceberg - one of the biggest ever recorded -- has calved away from the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica, after a rift in the ice,...

Im Focus: Laser-cooled ions contribute to better understanding of friction

Physics supports biology: Researchers from PTB have developed a model system to investigate friction phenomena with atomic precision

Friction: what you want from car brakes, otherwise rather a nuisance. In any case, it is useful to know as precisely as possible how friction phenomena arise –...
