Researchers at UCLA have developed a new method for producing a hybrid graphene?carbon nanotube, or G-CNT, for potential use as a transparent conductor in solar cells and consumer electronic devices. These G-CNTs could provide a cheaper and much more flexible alternative to materials currently used in these and similar applications.
The Institute for Computer Sciences, Social-Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering (ICST) has announced the dates for this year's International ICST Conference on Nano-Networks on October 18-20, 2009 in Luzern, Switzerland.
STMicroelectronics and Soitec today announced an exclusive joint cooperation between the two companies that will lead to the development of 300mm wafer-level backside-illumination technology for next-generation image sensors in consumer products.
Biomedical engineering professor Kristen Billiar, who will study the mechanics of nanoscale scaffolds for tissue engineering at the National University of Ireland Galway, is the 14th member of the current WPI faculty to be named a Fulbright Scholar
David B. Agus, M.D. brings his talents in researching new treatments for prostate cancer to his role as the director of the new University of Southern California (USC) Westside Cancer Center located in Beverly Hills, as well as directing the newly established Center for Applied Molecular Medicine at the USC Health Science Campus.
In a panel session at the 2009 BIO International Convention next week, individuals on the front lines of the biomedical revolution will explore what it takes to develop and successfully commercialize these 'disruptive' technologies, as well as the impact they could have on our future health and well-being.
The team's plan is to extend the capabilities of a powerful new imaging tool called the dynamic transmission electron microscope or DTEM. These instruments can snap 10 to 100 images per millionth of a second, while capturing details as small as 10 nanometers, or about four times the diameter of a DNA molecule.
Dr. Paul Corkum, an attosecond science researcher at the National Research Council Canada (NRC) and professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Ottawa, is this year's winner of one of Ontario's most prestigious science prizes.
Mobiltelefone und Laptops, die wie bunte Schmetterlinge in der Sonne schillern, sind moeglicherweise schon bald keine Zukunftsmusik mehr. Neue Verfahren zur Nanostrukturierung von Oberflaechen durch kontrollierte Faltenbildung bieten eine elegante und kostenguenstige Moeglichkeit, solche Effekte zu erzielen.
The National Science Foundation announced a special opportunity for funding projects that strengthen the research infrastructure in the nation's science and engineering research and education institutions.
