Space apparently has its own recipe for making carbon nanotubes, one of the most intriguing contributions of nanotechnology here on Earth, and metals are conspicuously missing from the list of ingredients. The finding is the surprising by-product of lab experiments designed by Joseph Nuth at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center
Kompetenzen vernetzen: Unter diesem Leitspruch organisierten die Landescluster NanoMikro+Werkstoffe.NRW, EnergieForschung.NRW und EnergieRegion.NRW die Veranstaltung 'Neue Materialien in der Energietechnologie: Batterietag NRW'.
Dozens of researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory are exploring new solar technologies as part of its Alternative Energy and Efficiency Initiative. The initiative aims to achieve revolutionary advances toward the large-scale use of solar energy by merging basic and applied research that is supported by collaborations with industry and other research organizations.
In a new laboratory study, scientists have found that saltwater oysters and mussels take up and retain significant amounts of manufactured nanoparticles from seawater in clumps of so-called 'marine snow'.
Singularity University - the academic institution with the goal of preparing the next generation of leaders to address 'humanity's grand challenges' - today announced the dates for the second year of its Graduate Studies Program, and a 200% class size increase to accommodate 80 of the top students from around the globe.
The development should lead to new, high-resolution imaging devices and medical applications. Just as optical lasers have been incorporated into countless, ubiquitous devices, a phonon laser is likely to be critical to a host of as yet unimaginable applications.
Within the framework of the conference series 'US-German Conference on the Commercialization of Nanotechnologies', Germany Trade and Invest is presenting business opportunities for American companies and research institutes in the field of nanotechnology in Eastern Germany.
The European Commission has launched a joint FP7 Future Emerging Technology research project TRAMS aiming to investigate the impact of increasing variability and decreasing reliability of the components in future terascale memory systems and to create new design paradigms which can secure their reliable operation in future multicore processors and system on a chip applications.
Co-Action Publishing has announced the launch of their latest title, Nano Reviews. The journal's Editor-in-Chief, Professor Vasudevanpillai Biju of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan, seeks no less than to organize the flood of studies that are currently emanating from the Nanoscience, Nanotechnology, Nanobiotechnology and Single-moledule research areas - the 3NS field.
The Australian Government is introducing a comprehensive national framework to guide the safe development of new technologies such as nanotechnology and biotechnology as part of a $38.2 million National Enabling Technologies Strategy released today.
