    What's New in General Vacuum

    Solution-grown nanowires make the best lasers

    "These are simply the best nanowire lasers by all performance criteria," says Jin, "even when compared to materials grown in high temperature and high vacuum."

    New insights into graphene and organic composites in electronics

    Coating graphene with organic molecules in a vacuum is one thing, but when it comes to functionalisation and cost, soluble graphene-organic hybrid systems have clear advantages over graphene produced by chemical vapour deposition or epitaxial growth.

    Proton beams are back in the LHC

    The technical stop of the LHC was a Herculean task. Some 10,000 electrical interconnections between the magnets were consolidated. Magnet protection systems were added, while cryogenic, vacuum and electronics were improved and strengthened. Furthermore, the beams will be set up in such a way that they will produce more collisions by bunching protons closer together, with the time separating bunches being reduced from 50 nanoseconds to 25 nanoseconds.

    Tackling the "Achilles heel" of OLED displays.

    A key innovation is encasing the printer in a nitrogen chamber, cutting exposure to oxygen and moisture, as well as cutting contamination with particles - notorious for diminishing OLED yields - by 10 times over current methods that use vacuum chambers.
