Mit der Entwicklung und dem Einsatz einer neuen Generation von Elektronenmikroskopen beschaeftigt sich ein internationales Symposium, zu dem der Exzellenzcluster 'Zellulaere Netzwerke' der Universitaet Heidelberg am 19. Februar 2010 einlaedt.
Arizona State University (ASU) scientists have come up with a new twist in their efforts to develop a faster and cheaper way to read the DNA genetic code. They have developed the first, versatile DNA reader that can discriminate between DNA's four core chemical components - the key to unlocking the vital code behind human heredity and health
While airplane and rocket experiments have proved that gravity makes clocks tick more slowly - a central prediction of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity - a new experiment in an atom interferometer measures this slowdown 10,000 times more accurately than before, and finds it to be exactly what Einstein predicted.
A world-renowned medical researcher discusses the key role that nanotechnology has begun to play in the detection and treatment of cancer in an article that will appear in the March 2010 edition of Mechanical Engineering magazine.
Life's smallest motor, a protein that shuttles cargo within cells and helps cells divide, does so by rocking up and down like a seesaw, according to research conducted by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Brandeis University.
Critical issues and potential solutions in preparing extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUVL) for high-volume manufacturing will be explored by SEMATECH technologists at the SPIE Advanced Lithography 2010 conferences Feb. 21-25 in San Jose, CA.
A University of Missouri researcher is developing a tiny sensor, known as an acoustic resonant sensor, that is smaller than a human hair and could test bodily fluids for a variety of diseases, including breast and prostate cancers.
European experts in nanotechnology, optoelectronics and quantum physics have advanced the generation, detection and manipulation of single photons in semiconductors. Their discoveries bring practical single-photon and quantum applications significantly closer.
Nanotechnologie und speziell Nanopartikel eroeffnen neue, ungeahnte Moeglichkeiten fuer die Pharmazie und die Medizin. Das Potenzial dieser winzigen Partikel steht im Mittelpunkt einer Konferenz, zu der namhafte Experten und Nachwuchswissenschaftler aus der ganzen Welt an der Universitaet des Saarlandes zusammenkommen.
Building on his Nobel Prize-winning work creating fluorescent proteins that light up the inner workings of cells, a team of researchers led by Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator Roger Tsien, PhD, professor of pharmacology, chemistry and biochemistry at the University of California, San Diego and the Moores UCSD Cancer Center has developed biological probes that can stick to and light up tumors in mice.
Forscher am Institut fuer Halbleitertechnik an der Technischen Universitaet Braunschweig entwickeln gemeinsam mit Kollegen an der Universitaet Princeton (New Jersey, USA) und an der TU Muenchen neuartige Bauelemente fuer zukuenftige Computerchip-Generationen.
