Keithley Publishes Handbook on Nanotechnology Measurement

Photonics.com
Apr 2007
Measurement tool maker Keithley Instruments Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio, announced this week the availability of its Nanotechnology Measurement Handbook, a 124-page guide to electrical measurements for nanoscience applications. The handbook offers assistance in making precision low-level DC and pulse measurements on nanomaterials and devices and provides an overview of the theoretical and practical considerations involved in measuring low currents, high resistances, low voltages and low resistances. The handbook also includes four appendices, including a selector guide for choosing the appropriate nanotechnology solution; a glossary of commonly used terms, a discussion of safety considerations and troubleshooting strategies. It can be used as a reference and as an aid to understanding low-level phenomena observed in the lab, Keithley said. To request a free copy, visit: www.ggcomm.com/Keithley/MAR07NANOTECH_NR.html or call: (888) KEITHLEY.



GLOSSARY
nanotechnology
The use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
