Proteins attaching to gold nanoparticles don't mill around randomly, but organise into clusters, according to UK scientists who say they have for the first time spied in detail peptides assembling on a surface.
Scientists report that they have combined silicon and ferromagnetic iron with a small amount of another common metal, manganese, to create a new material which is neither a magnet nor an ordinary semiconductor.
In the framework of Holst Centre, IMEC - Europe's leading independent nanoelectronics research institute - has broadened the functionality and scope of its wireless health monitoring technology by linking it to real-time extraction of relevant medical data.
Dr. Novoselov, a Royal Society Research Fellow in The School of Physics and Astronomy, was selected from more than 300 nominees under the age of 35 following his discovery of graphene with Professor Andre Geim in 2004.
The structure of gold nanoparticles has been largely unknown for over a decade. The current study helps to understand the stability, composition as well as electronic, chemical and optical properties of the particles.
Forscher in Japan stellten vor einigen Jahren in einem Experiment zufaellig eine Verbindung aus Silizium, Mangan und Kohlenstoff her, die unerwarteterweise auch bei Raumtemperatur ferromagnetisch war. Forschern aus Karlsruhe und Dresden gelang nun die Herstellung von magnetischen 'Nano-Draehten' aus diesem Material.
The U.S. Department of Energy announced on August 14 that it has selected 10 hydrogen storage research and development projects to receive $15.3 million over the next 5 years, subject to annual appropriations.
Indonesian researchers can access the latest research in particle physics from world-class scientists gathering for the 4th Asia-Pacific Conference on Few-Body Problems in Physics, which opened Tuesday.
The new Materials Technology@TMS site provides forums for those engaged in developing emerging materials technologies, improving established materials technologies, educating the next generation of materials scientists and engineers, and using technical skills to meet societal needs.
In the quest to better understand one of nature's most 'ghostly' elementary particles - the neutrino - scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy?s Brookhaven National Laboratory are spreading their expertise from the mines of Canada to the mountains of China.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a fast, inexpensive and effective method for evaluating the sugars pharmaceutical companies use to stabilize protein-drugs for storage at room temperature.
