Revealing research breakthroughs, engineers from SEMATECH's Front End Processes (FEP) program will present technical papers at the 56th annual IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) from December 6-8, 2010, at the Hilton in San Francisco, CA.
Just like an electrical switch allows the flow of electricity into electrical circuits, relativistic transparency in plasma can act like a fast optical switch allowing the flow of light through otherwise opaque plasma.
The Inter University Accelerator Centre (IUAC), New Delhi, India, and the Quantum Beam Center, NIMS, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on collaborative research for 'the Fabrication and modification of nanomaterials by ion beams'.
This agreement will not only reinforce the existing collaboration between UCL and NIMS in the field of computational materials science, organic nanomaterials and photocatalytic materials, but also envisage new collaboration and exchange of researchers.
A research team at the International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA) in Japan has developed an exhaust gas catalyst material with approximately 10 times greater thermal agglomeration resistance than conventional materials. This dramatic improvement in thermal agglomeration resistance opens the road to a large reduction in the amount of rare metals used in exhaust gas purification technologies.
A group of scientists from the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences, in cooperation with employees of the Warsaw University of Technology and the Atomic Energy Commission in Grenoble, have managed to determine how thin layers of highly ordered polymers can be created - a key element in the production process of organic electronic systems.
The American molecular biologist Susan Lindquist from the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, is the 2010 recipient of the Max Delbruck Medal awarded in Berlin, Germany. Lindquist, who is also a biology professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), was honored for her work on protein folding.
The side effects of chemotherapy could be largely wiped out by a so-called 'magic bullet' nanotechnology system being researched in Dubai, according to an associate professor at Dubai Pharmacy College.
Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC) and the Venezuelan Science Ministry's Center for Science and Technology Researches signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on interacademic cooperation in the field of nanotechnology.
More than 1,000 people, including children, adults and families from throughout upstate New York, converged today on the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany to participate in CNSE Community Day, a highlight of CNSE's unprecedented community and educational outreach initiative known as NANOvember.
