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: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
