Using super-high pressures similar to those found deep in the Earth or on a giant planet, Washington State University researchers have created a compact, never-before-seen material capable of storing vast amounts of energy.
Building on last year's popular webinars on the regulation of nanotechnology, Keller and Heckman and NanoReg are pleased to announce Nanotechnology Today 2010, a series of four new webinars designed to address important regulatory issues and the challenges associated with the safe development of nano-enhanced products.
Scientists of the University of Freiburg and the University of Frankfurt have elucidated the architecture of the largest protein complex of the cellular respiratory chain. They discovered an unknown mechanism of energy conversion in this molecular complex. The mechanism is required to utilize the energy contained in food.
New work from the Institute of Food Research has shown how sugar beet pectin acts as an efficient emulsifier, using a technique that could be used to unravel in the finest detail how such important food ingredients work.
Wissenschaftler der Universitaeten Freiburg und Frankfurt haben die Architektur des groessten Proteinkomplexes der zellulaeren Atmungskette aufgeklaert. Sie entdeckten einen bisher unbekannten Mechanismus der Energieumwandlung in diesem molekularen Komplex.
Science fiction has nothing over quantum physics when it comes to presenting us with a labyrinthine world that can twist your mind into knots when you try to make sense of it. A team of Arizona State University researchers, however, believe they've opened a door to a clearer view of how the common, everyday world we experience through our senses emerges from the ethereal quantum world.
Powerful new microscopes able to resolve DNA molecules with visible light, superfast computers that use light rather than electronic signals to process information, and Harry Potteresque invisibility cloaks are just some of the many thrilling promises of transformation optics.
The NanoBusiness Alliance today issued a Position Statement on Nanomaterials Product Sustainability, which reflects NanoBusiness Alliance members' enduring commitment to managing effectively the environmental, health, and safety (EHS) implications of nanotechnology.
A new shape memory alloy with up to now unprecedented functional stability was developed by researchers from the Institute for Materials at the Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum in cooperation with researchers from the USA and Japan.
Nongjian Tao, a researcher at the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University has hit on a new way of making graphene, maximizing the material's enormous potential, particularly for use in high-speed electronic devices.
The Danish company Topsoe Fuel Cell A/S and Riso DTU have received a grant of 54.5 million DKK from the Danish Energy Agency's Programme for Energy Technology Development and Demonstration (EUDP). This will ensure that the current efforts within solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) will be continued, leading to prototypes in 2012 which meet market demands for efficiency, life time and price.
