  • Carbon Nanotube Based Transistor Device (No. T4-1730)

    Scientist: Shahal Ilani

    With the continuous trend of electronic component miniaturization, process control technologies must keep up with component size reduction. Defects that were so far negligible, are now posing critical operation obstacles, and are more difficult to identify as scales are reduced to <10 nm. This new technology developed ... Read more
  • Conductive Inorganic Fullerenes and Nanotubes (No. T4-1482)

    Scientist: Reshef Tenne

    Modification of the electronic properties of layered-type semiconductors can be accomplished by doping/alloying of the semiconductor. In the present disclosure we show that doping of MoS2 and WS2 nanotubes/nanoparticles can be accomplished by doping with either Re (n-type) or Nb (p-type) foreign atoms. These nanoparticle ...

  • Desulfurization of Flue-Gasses (No. T4-1577)

    Scientist: Igor Lubomirsky

    A novel desulfurization system achieves removal of sulfur dioxide (SO2) from industrial exhaust streams at efficiencies that can greatly supersede technologies currently in use. The chemical process is highly selective to SO2, and consumes much less reagents, therefore reducing the cost of desulfurization.Techniques to c ... Read more
  • Device for Electric Field Induced Local Magnetization (No. T4-1886)

    Scientist: Ron Naaman

    A new technology developed by a group of researchers led by Prof. Ron Naaman from the Weizmann Institute, harnesses the advantages of electron spin orientation for memory and information transmission applications. The innovation enables replacement of the traditional current-based semiconductor technologies, yielding fas ... Read more
  • Devices and Methods to Measure Small Displacements (No. T4-1815)

    Scientist: Igor Lubomirsky

    This novel method utilizes polarized light that in contrast to conventional methods does not interact directly with the material or with the material’s surface. Here the material to be tested is secured underneath a reflective material, such that the polarized light reflected off the reflective material does not intera ... Read more
  • Extraction of Gold from Electronic Waste and Ores (No. T4-1910)

    Scientist: Igor Lubomirsky

    A method for selective extraction of gold has been developed at the Weizmann Institute. This method allows the efficient and environmentally benign recovery of gold that is currently discarded of in large quantities from electronic waste from household appliances, consumer electronic devices and industrial equipment.Prof ...
