A study day attended by several Tunisian and foreign experts in nanotechnologies was organized on Thursday in Tunis. The study day which was held at the national institute of applied sciences and technologies of Tunis (INSAT), laid the groundwork for the second edition of the Tunisian nanosciences and nanotechnologies Days due to be held in Tunis in July 2009.
An international research team has reconciled two theories that explain the properties of the pion. The work is important because this subatomic particle plays a key role in the strong interaction - the fundamental force that holds atomic nuclei together.
Researchers have developed a new, table-top technique called RAPID (Resolution Augmentation through Photo-Induced Deactivation) lithography that makes it possible to create small features without the use of ultraviolet light.
Ohio State University researchers have developed a new strategy to overcome one of the major obstacles to a grand challenge in physics. What they've discovered could eventually aid high-temperature superconductivity, as well as the development of new high-tech materials.
On April 26, hundreds of students, staff, and faculty from premier Bay Area research universities and laboratories, as well as scientists and businesspeople from industry will converge at the 6th annual Berkeley Nanotechnology Forum.
CEA/Leti (the Electronics and Information Technology Laboratory of the CEA, based in Grenoble), and IBM today announced that they will collaborate on research in semiconductor and nanoelectronics technology.
Hirosi Ooguri and Masahito Yamazaki of the Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (IPMU) developed a new method to use crystal melting models in three dimensions to identify quantum states of black holes in superstring theory.
Indium tin oxide (ITO), with all of its faults and inadequacies, will continue to dominate the transparent conductor industry for the foreseeable future, according to NanoMarkets. The firm projects revenues from ITO to grow from $3.2 billion this year to $8.3 billion by 2014.
Recent experiments to create a fast-reacting explosive by concocting it at the nanoscopic level could result in more spectacular firework displays. But more impressively, the method used to mix chemicals at that tiny scale could lead to new strong porous materials for high temperature applications, from thermal insulation in jet engines to industrial chemical reactors.
