Developments in nanobiotechnology at UCSB point to medical applications

Two new groundbreaking scientific papers by researchers at UC Santa Barbara demonstrate the synthesis of nanosize biological particles with the potential to fight cancer and other illnesses. The studies introduce new approaches that are considered 'green' nanobiotechnology because they use no artificial compounds.

Micro rheometer is latest lab-on-a-chip device

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a microminiaturized device that can make complex viscosity measurements - critical data for a wide variety of fields dealing with things that have to flow - on sample sizes as small as a few nanoliters.

Silicon oxide nanoelectronics circuits break barrier

Rice University scientists have created the first two-terminal memory chips that use only silicon, one of the most common substances on the planet, in a way that should be easily adaptable to nanoelectronic manufacturing techniques and promises to extend the limits of miniaturization subject to Moore's Law.

Glass magic - a film that changes what glass can do

Researchers have developed a process that allows them to manufacture not just transparent, but heatable films. These films also prevent condensation, ensuring ice cannot build up on the windscreen overnight - and, once and for all, consigning the ice scraper to the trash can.
