The speed at which heat moves between two materials touching each other is a potent indicator of how strongly they are bonded to each other, according to a new study by researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
Researchers have developed a heat-dissipation method that cools carbon nanotube electronics by utilizing nonconventional radiation in a 'near-field zone' just above the substrate, or surface, on which the nanotubes rest.
Pierre Lapointe, president and C.E.O. of FPInnovations, will make a keynote presentation at the 2009 International Conference on Nanotechnology for the Forest Products Industry, presented by TAPPI and Alberta Ingenuity, June 23-26, 2009 in Edmonton, Canada
Industrial Nanotech, Inc. announced today that the Company's patented Nansulate nanotechnology-based coatings will be showcased in a green technology show house currently being renovated in Brooklyn, New York by Eco Brooklyn.
A simple treatment of a nano-coating to building surfaces could leave an entire structure unscathed in the event of an overwhelming fire. Details about this application along with a multitude of similar practical developments will be the subject of the Nano Cement, Steel and Construction Industries Conference to be held May 16-17, 2009 in Cairo.
Applied scientists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) in collaboration with researchers from Hamamatsu Photonics in Hamamatsu City, Japan, have demonstrated, for the first time, lasers in which the direction of oscillation of the emitted radiation, known as polarization, can be designed and controlled at will.
Cerium oxide is a ceramic nano-abrasive. Scientists have now examined, under conditions close to reality, what happens when it is breathed in and deposited on the lung surface. Initially, the result was rather reassuring.
With last month's passing of the bill for the 'Act on the KIT Merger', the cabinet of the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg has set the course for the legislation procedure to establish the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).
