The London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) and Veeco Instruments, UK are joining forces to set-up a training course for professionals and academics dedicated to the utilisation of Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM).
The Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network (NanoKTN), one of the UK's primary knowledge based networks for Micro and Nanotechnologies, has announced the appointment of Dr Barry Park as its new Theme Manager for Manufacturing and Processing.
The Nanotechnology Mini-Innovation and Growth Team at NanoKTN in the UK are looking to collect and collate information regarding what UK companies are currently doing in nanotechnology and what their requirements are to ensure major growth over the next ten years.
Technologies like nanotechnology, biomaterials and microfluidics can play a powerful role in reducing the impact of industrial activity on the environment, while opening new markets for Alberta-developed products and services.
It is possible that broken bones will in the near future be fixed using metallic glass. Materials researchers at ETH Zurich have developed an alloy that could herald a new generation of biodegradable bone implants.
Auf dem 2. Internationalen Nanotechnologie Forum (RusNanoTech 09) in Moskau, organisiert das BMBF vom 6. bis 8. Oktober einen deutschen Gemeinschaftsstand, auf dem auch die Universitaet Kassel vertreten sein wird.
University of Toronto researchers have used nanomaterials to develop a microchip sensitive enough to quickly determine the type and severity of a patient's cancer so that the disease can be detected earlier for more effective treatment.
Physicists at UC San Diego have successfully created speedy integrated circuits with particles called 'excitons' that operate at commercially cold temperatures, bringing the possibility of a new type of extremely fast computer based on excitons closer to reality.
