The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has updated and enhanced several web resources containing NIOSH's research results and recommendations on the work-related health and safety implications of nanotechnology.
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany will host a first-ever conference this week that is designed to enable strategic partnerships with several leading Japanese organizations for advanced research, development and commercialization of leading-edge nanoscale technologies.
At the end of the two-year study, a team at Rice University hopes to have a database that charts the expected response of particles of a given size, type and chemistry. Ultimately, the hope is to provide researchers with a tool that will help predict how a particular particle is likely to behave.
Researchers at A*STAR's Institute of Microelectronics (IME) have developed a rapid and sensitive integrated system to test for specific cardiac biomarkers in blood. Compared to the conventional testing platform known as ELISA (Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay), the new integrated system significantly cuts sample preparation and analysis time which typically requires 6 hours to just 45 minutes.
University of New South Wales will enhance its research capabilities in areas including nanotechnology, clean energy and biotechnologies following its success in the latest round of federal government grants for major equipment and research infrastructure.
An MoU documents the intention to expand cooperation between RUSNANO and the EBRD, as this organizations share common goals: to promote the commercialization of promising scientific and technological advancements and create conditions for sustainable innovation development.
At this week's International Electron Devices Meeting, the nanoelectronics research center imec presents an innovative, simple and robust GaN-on-Si double heterostructure FET (field effect transistor) architecture for GaN-on-Si power switching devices.
The semiconductor, called a plasmon, can focus light the size of a single protein in a space that is smaller than half its wavelength while maintaining laser-like qualities that allow it to not dissipate over time.
