3 New IEC Nanotechnology Specs Released

There are 3 new IEC Nanotechnology Technical Specifications and those of you in the  industry will want to get copies.  One is a vocabulary document (IEC TS 8004-9).  The other two address Nanomanufacturing (IEC TS 62607-3-2 and IEC TS 62607-4-5).  We’ll take a look at each of them one at a time.

IEC TS 80004-9Nanotechnologies – Vocabulary – Part 9: Nano-enabled electrotechnical products and systems

This new technical specification has been released to help those of you working on the synthesis of nanomaterials and composites.  The uses of these materials are being explored for high energy storage batteries, for example.  Since the field is growing quickly, there’s a need for this terms and definitions document.  Some examples of terms addressed include NEMS (nano-electromechanical system) and OE (organic electronics).  It should be used by folks in the field of nanotechnologies and the production of electrotechnical products and systems.

IEC TS 62607-3-2Nanomanufacturing – Key control characteristics – Part 3-2: Luminescent nanoparticles – Determination of mass of quantum dot dispersion

Luminescent nanoparticles are finding their way into a number of applications, including medical diagnostic devices, lighting, and “smart” glass.  This is achieved by the use of “quantum dots,” the physical particles themselves.  Of course, these dots need to be synthesized and tested for stability.  This 18-page technical specification addresses the technical details of determining the mass of a sample quantum dot dispersion. Measurements are taken after the impurities and sufactant ligands are removed by heating to high temperatures.

IEC TS 62607-4-5Nanomanufacturing – Key control characteristics – Part 4-5: Cathode nanomaterials for nano-enabled electrical energy storage – Electrochemical characterization, 3-electrode cell method

This 26-page technical specification is also a highly technical document for nanomanufacturing.  It too focuses on energy systems, particularly batteries for electric vehicles.  Of particular interest is the use of electrodes made from nanoscale composites.  The document specifically provides a methodology for characterizing the electrochemical properties of new cathode nanomaterials.  It is based on a 3-electrode cell method.  This will help you compare different types of cathode nanomaterials (like lithium iron phosphate – LFP) during your developmental stages.
