Industry Trends

  • Though there is no precise universal definition of what constitutes “advanced manufacturing”, the phrase is widely used to refer to any manufacturing process which adopts new, innovative technologies to create new products or enhance processes.

  • By measuring changes in physical properties that occur during nanoscale processes, nanosensors offer extremely high sensitivity and selectivity for a range of sensing applications. In this article, we explore the working principles of nanosensors and take a look at their most promising applications.

  • From polymers to superalloys to semiconductors, the materials science industry is responsible for some of the most significant technological developments in modern history. In this article, we take a look at the top 5 materials science trends that we expect to influence the world in 2021.

  • Cellulose is an integral part of wood fiber and the most abundant biopolymer on our plane. From bacteria to majestic trees, it is omnipresent as a building block of plant cells. The transformation of plant cellulose has given rise to interesting cellulose materials including microfibrillated cellulose (MFC), nanofibrillated cellulose (NFC), bacterial cellulose (BC) and nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC).

  • Deep tech is often defined as being start-up companies that develop new products based on ‘scientific innovation or meaningful engineering innovation’. This is as opposed to technological development driven by a specific customer demand. Examples of deep tech include artificial intelligence, quantum computing and biotechnology....

  • As part of an ambitious plan to ‘grow an innovation economy’ in Canada, the Canadian government has laid out an extensive network of plans to boost the countries science, research and technological developments. Here are just some of the areas where Canadian innovation is having...

  • Business technology covers a broad scope of technologies that are integrated into business operations. For many businesses, this includes various information technologies, such as virtual meeting software and virtual private networks. For others, it may extend to automation technologies, spanning from the use of robots...
