New Press on Nanotronics - January 31, 2012

Research for Alzheimer's and Regenerative Medicine now Benefitting from Nanotronics' Microscopy--

New York (MMD Newswire) January 30, 2012 -- Nanotronics Imaging, a pioneer in nano-inspection for semiconductors, announced today that it will assist medical research by applying its groundbreaking inspection methods to neuroscience, regenerative medicine and other life science fields. Its inaugural partners are the Joseph L. Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University Medical Center, and the McGowen Institute at University of Pittsburgh. Both institutions have begun to make promising strides with Nanotronics' systems in Alzheimer's research and large-scale regenerative medicine.

"One of the major challenges for scientific research is to have the ability to rapidly screen materials at the nanoscale, and in no field is that more critical than life-saving medical research," said Nanotronics Imaging CEO and founder Dr. Matthew Putman. "Scientists recently discovered, for example, that Alzheimer's disease is not irreversible. Rapid high-resolution imaging of the brain's neurons will be critical to furthering such medical advances, as well as in the study of other debilitating diseases such as schizophrenia. Our high resolution nSPEC® microscope has unparalleled high-area capabilities, covering large areas of the brain, and can reduce imaging time from weeks down to days or even minutes."

Nanotronics Official at CS Mantech - May 15, 2011

Nanotronics Imaging LLC, is introducing the nSPEC(tm) semiconductor analysis system next week at the CS Mantech show in Palm Springs, California. Cutting-edge proprietary software and hardware underlying nSPEC(tm) enables rapid, and detailed analysis of wafer defects. Complete system automation with cassette-to-cassette loading of 2"-8" wafers is available. Nanotronics promotes "Point and Shoot" microscopy, as it aims to eliminate a learning curve for users, while giving accurate and easy to interpret data.  

Nanotronics Imaging is proud to announce new Vice President Ivan Eliashevich, Ph.D. who brings a level of expertise in the semiconductor industry that is unique. "I knew Ivan as client, who helped me to understand wafer technology. He is honest, knowledgeable, and a powerful proponent for the customer and supplier. I feel lucky to have him as a part of our team", says CEO and founder Matthew Putman.

Review Of "The Gowanus Recodings" - July 3, 2009

Real free jazz is like water : it flows freely, refreshingly, you can dip your feet in it, submerge in it, drown in it. You can't tell. But the best way to enjoy it, is to make sure you keep afloat (don't swim!) and let the music carry you away, without expectations, without an idea of where you will end up, stop rationalizing (where? what? when? how? ), stop asking questions, stop wondering, just float along. At least that's how I appreciate most of real free jazz, think of Other Dimensions In Music for instance. This album is in the same vein, and I enjoy it at the same level.

The band is led by Demian Richardson on trumpet, with Matthew Putman on piano, David Moss on bass, Federico Ughi on drums, and Daniel Carter on tenor sax, flute, clarinet and trumpet. Ughi and Carter need no introduction: soulful freedom is their natural habitat. Moss has the not so easy task of deciding when and when not to formalise rhythms, and usually he manages to color the music rather than play the beat. Putman does a really great thing on piano, which is possibly the hardest instrument to play in a totally free enviromnent without sounding chaotic or overpowering the soloists, yet he is at his best on the slow "Out Of The Ether". Yet Richardson himself is the star. I did not know him. But his tone is clear and bluesy, in the most traditional sense, yet what he does with it is the strong part: playing phrases heavy with soul and freedom, confident enough to use silence to create a feeling of openness and possibilities. And that defines the very nature of the music : gentle and free, unobtrusive yet full of character, open yet focused. Let it flow and float along ...

Buy from 577 Records.
