The mission of the company is to develop and commercialize new materials and technologies for industry transfer to create new products with the aim to improve quality of life, work and environment. The company acts as a go-between among many industrial branches and research fields, in particoular: nanotubes, fibers, fabrics, composite textile structures, extreme sport equipments and safe equipments, new performing materials and technologies for furnishing / automotive / nautical / medical areas.
Caleo-Tex is a textile finishing treatment based on carbon nanoparticles able to confer conductive properties to natural fibers and fabrics. The result is a cotton able to warm more than wool when properly powered.
Fifty-two years ago, on February 20, 1962, John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth. He also was one of the first humans to study the planet from space. Just 5 minutes and 44 seconds after launch, Glenn offered his first words about the view from his porthole: “This is Friendship 7. Can see clear back; a big cloud pattern way back across towards the Cape. Beautiful sight.” Three hours later, at the beginning of his third orbit, Glenn photographed this panoramic view of Florida from the Georgia border (right, under clouds) to just north of Cape Canaveral. His American homeland was 162 miles (260 kilometers) below. “I have the Cape in sight down there,” he noted to mission controllers. “It looks real fine from up here. I can see the whole state of Florida just laid out like on a map. Beautiful.”

When GE designed this electric flying suit for the U.S. Air Corps, pressurized airplane cabins were not yet in use. At high altitudes cabins could reach sub-zero temperatures capable of freezing flesh to metal. Shown above is a test of a GE electric flying suit at 63 degrees below zero in a cold room at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey in 1941.
Argon gas molecules are known to be much more thermal insulating than air (essentially oxygen and nitrogen) and undergo almost no chemical reactions. The complete octet (eight electrons) in the outer atomic shell makes argon stable and resistant to bonding with other elements. FOR MORE INFORMATION SEND AN EMAIL: CONTACT@GZESPACE.COM
Nice uh? Yeah, but wrong. It is quite common when you make artistic representations of scientific issues, run the risk, not always consciously, to create confusion in physical concepts, scales, mechanisms, etc… Not a criticism, but I think it is important to consider, especially when speaking of very small scales (nanotechnology, quantum mechanics, particle physics…).
Improving the performance of field-effect transistors (FETs) involves reducing the length and thickness of the channel between the source and drain electrodes. Andras Kis and co-workers have made an FET in which the channel is a single layer of MoS2 that is just 0.65 nm thick and 1,500 nm long: the black spheres in this schematic (which is not to scale) are Mo atoms; the yellow spheres are S atoms. The MoS2 layer also has a bandgap, which is crucial for many applications.
