Nanyang Technological University (NTU) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM), a leading German research university, to foster faculty and student exchanges.
Funding from theBiotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) could lead to the development of new and better treatments for broken bones and other orthopaedic problems associated with ageing.
Elsevier's Science + Technology division China and Science News announced today that they will jointly organize the first 'Attracting Academic Talent Summit' in Beijing on June 2, 2009, at the Beijing Rongjin International Hotel.
Facettenreiche Einblicke in die Welt der Nanotechnologie - von neuen Forschungsansaetzen ueber aussergewoehnliche Karrierewege bis zu exzellenten Kompetenzzentren - vermittelt erneut das Magazin 'Nanotechnologie aktuell' in seiner Ausgabe 2009.
Starting out with a review of the principles of nanophotonics, this book covers a wide range of novel nanofabrication technologies. The internationally recognized editor pioneered this field of research and here he has gathered together a team of authors to highlight the technical details and procedures for both discrete particle as well as surface structure generation.
Scientists have shed new light on how cells interpret messages from the signalling molecule known as 'Hedgehog', which plays an important role in the development of organisms as diverse as flies, fish, mice and humans.
The object of this call by the Joint Research Centre, Institute for Health and Consumer Protection, for expression of interest is the provision of services in the field of nanotechnology - safety assessment of products and substances.
The doctoral dissertation of Lauri Sainiemi (M.Sc.) studies silicon micro and nanofabrication methods, which have a large number of applications. The single most interesting example presented in the dissertation is a novel nanopatterned silicon surface which allows almost limitless manipulation of water droplets.
Ein Gutachtergremium der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG schaetzt den Sonderforschungsbereich 'Nanopositionier- und Nanomesstechnik' der Technischen Universitaet Ilmenau als 'Leuchtturm mit unerreichter Praezision' ein und foerdert ihn daher in den kommenden vier Jahren mit rund sieben Millionen Euro.
By combining the best of two different distance measurement approaches with a super-accurate technology called an optical frequency comb, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have built a laser ranging system that can pinpoint multiple objects with nanometer precision over distances up to 100 kilometers.
