An intimate understanding of complex materials that lie at the heart of pharmaceuticals or even nuclear weapons can occur more quickly and efficiently thanks to an agreement between Los Alamos and Argonne national laboratories.
European scientists have created a pioneering three-dimensional (3D) brain probing system that may provide new leads for understanding schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease and other serious brain conditions.
Mit 4,23 Millionen Euro foerdert die Europaeische Union den Aufbau von zwei Technologie-Zentren an der Uni Wuerzburg. Die neuen Einrichtungen befassen sich mit Nanotechnologien und mit ultrahochaufloesender Analytik.
Jeffrey Long's lab will soon host a round-the-clock, robotically choreographed hunt for carbon-hungry materials. The Berkeley Lab chemist leads a diverse team of scientists whose goal is to quickly discover materials that can efficiently strip carbon dioxide from a power plant's exhaust, before it leaves the smokestack and contributes to climate change.
Scientists from four U.S. universities have created a way to use Rice University's light-activated nanoshells as building blocks for 2-D and 3-D structures that could find use in chemical sensors, nanolasers and bizarre light-absorbing metamaterials.
Dr. Andriy Kovalenko will make a keynote presentation at the 2010 International Conference on Nanotechnology for the Forest Products Industry, presented by TAPPI and VTT. He is Senior Research Officer, Group Leader - Theory and Modeling, NRC-NINT and Adjunct Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Alberta.
Christian Stamm and his colleagues at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin fuer Materialien und Energie (HZB) can look back on six years of pioneering work at the synchrotron BESSY II. They have set up a unique experiment on so-called femtoslicing, and are now publishing a result obtained in collaboration with an external user group.
Aiming to motivate researchers to help the U.S. Navy decrease its reliance on fossil fuels, the Office of Naval Research announced nine winners of an 'Energy Challenge' that was issued at its recent Naval Energy Forum.
Gary D. Seidel, assistant professor of aerospace engineering in the College of Engineering at Virginia Tech, has received a Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award to support development of a carbon nanotube-enhanced composite for structural health monitoring sensors to improve the resiliency of huge wind turbine blades.
Mit der Alterung biologischer Zellen beschaeftigen sich deutsche Wissenschaftler und Unternehmen in einem neuen Verbundprojekt. Modernste optische Methoden sollen die Prozesse in lebenden Zellen beruehrungslos charakterisieren und abbilden.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded nearly $2.5 million to 11 companies to support their work in eight key environmental areas: monitoring and control of air emissions, biofuels, green buildings, drinking water monitoring, hazardous waste monitoring, water infrastructure, homeland security, nanotechnology and innovation in manufacturing.
Dr Mark Gasson, from the School of Systems Engineering, contaminated a computer chip which had been inserted into his hand as part of research into human enhancement and the potential risks of implantable devices.
