Researchers from Rice University's Laboratory for Nanophotonics (LANP), the radiology department at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center are preparing to test a combined approach for diagnosing and treating pancreatic cancer with a specially engineered nanoparticle.
New York University has received a $1.6 million National Science Foundation grant to upgrade its Structural DNA Nanotechnology facility. Structural DNA nanotechnology uses synthetic DNA molecules to create new materials.
Vor genau zwei Jahre praesentierte das AIT Austrian Institute of Technology am 20. Oktober 2008 weltweit zum ersten Mal ein quantenkryptographisches Netzwerk, resultierend aus einer Kooperation mit den fuehrenden europaeischen Gruppen, darunter auch der Uni Wien. In den Tagen zwischen 18. und 20.Oktober 2010 erfolgt eine neuerliche Live-Praesentation.
Scientists have captured the first direct images of magnetic monopoles which were theoretically conceived by the British-Swiss physicist Dirac in the early 1930s who showed that their existence is consistent with the ultimate theory of matter - quantum theory.
The National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) is introducing new administrative processes for the notification and assessment of industrial nanomaterials that are considered to be New Chemicals under Part 3 (Notification and Assessment of Industrial Chemicals) of the Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Act 1989 (the Act).
Scientists at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in conjunction with the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, Ca., recently reported a detailed study of the interactions of water soluble semi-conductor quantum dots (QDs) with the electro-active neuro-transmitter dopamine. These biocompatible QD-dopamine nano-assemblies may be used as the active component for sensors that are used to detect a wide variety of target analytes ranging from sugars to peroxides.
Extracting drinking water from the sea to prepare for a world parched by climate change, and re-imagining aeroplane and ship hull designs for the best fuel efficiency, are two of the visionary applications of a new GBP2.4 million research project announced today at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland.
The funds will support the NU Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence, a collaborative venture between NU's International Institute for Nanotechnology and the Chicago-based Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Balaji Sitharaman, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Stony Brook University, is a 2010 recipient of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director's New Innovator Award. Only a select group of early-career biomedical researchers nationwide receive this award, which includes a 5-year $1.5 million grant.
Die Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) hat Dr. Sabine Wurmehl in ihr renommiertes Emmy-Noether-Programm zur Foerderung des wissenschaftlichen Nachwuchses aufgenommen. Der inhaltliche Schwerpunkt liegt in Materialien fuer die Spintronik.
The FlexTech Alliance, focused on developing the supply chain for displays and flexible, printed electronics, today announced that it has awarded Corning Incorporated a grant to develop commercially viable methods for continuous printed electronic manufacturing on flexible glass substrates. The general substrate design and process methods identified will be applicable to a wide range of applications including sensors, energy harvesting and storage, displays, and solid state lighting.
Physicists at UC Santa Barbara have succeeded in combining laser light with trapped electrons to detect and control the electrons' fragile quantum state without erasing it. This is an important step toward using quantum physics to expand computing power and to communicate over long distances without the possibility of eavesdropping.
