Veeco has announced their second Veeco Labs request for proposals. In this program, Veeco will award the best five proposals, an approx. $40k electronic application module (TUNA/TR-TUNA, SSRM, SCM, or CAFM) for the Dimension, MultiMode, or Innova SPMs.
The online gallery for Princeton University's third Art of Science competition went live Thursday, May 14. An online site that allows members of the public to choose their favorite 2009 Art of Science image will go live at the same time.
Nanotechnology scientists at UALRand UAMS Monday will present a briefing on a new discovery in the fight to eradicate cancer. The discovery has promise for a new generation of treatment options beyond surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.
Applying innovative measurement techniques, researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have directly measured the unusual energy spectrum of graphene, a technologically promising, two-dimensional form of carbon that has tantalized and puzzled scientists since its discovery in 2004.
The Institute of Nanotechnology (IoN), through its role in the EU-funded observatoryNANO project, is investigating the role that nanotechnology and other technologies can play in addressing complex security issues.
The Regulatory Governance Initiative (RGI) at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada has recently produced a report entitled: 'International Approaches to the Regulatory Governance of Nanotechnology'.
An international team of scientists has resolved the structure of chlorophyll in chlorosomes of green bacteria. Chlorosomes are the light-harvesting antennae of these bacteria. Such structures can be useful in the future for the development of 'artificial leaves'.
Molecular biologists, including the cool dudes from CSI, use gel electrophoresis to separate DNA fragments from each other in order to analyse the DNA. A team of researchers under the leadership of Vici winner Serge Lemay, has now shown for the first time how the gel influences the movement of the DNA.
Researchers from the Kavli Institute of NanoScience in Delft are the first to have successfully captured a single electron in a highly tunable carbon nanotube double quantum dot. This was made possible by a new approach for producing ultraclean nanotubes.
Anatoly Chubais, RUSNANO Director General, met with the representatives of the largest investment banks to attract the investment community both to search together for new potential business opportunities in the hi-tech area outside Russia and finance RUSNANO?s current projects.
