A team of Vanderbilt engineers will play a key role in a new federal effort to significantly improve our understanding of how gases and liquids interact with solid surfaces - basic studies that have potential applications ranging from better batteries to more efficient methods for converting solar and electrical energy into fuel, improved fuel cells and enhancing the corrosion resistance of materials.
Researchers at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science have developed a novel, continuously running camera that captures images roughly a thousand times faster than any existing conventional camera.
On the 28th and 29th of April the representatives of Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies (RUSNANO) and the Finnish Nanotechnology Development Institute FinNano discussed the possibilities to implement the joint projects during their meeting in Saint-Petersburg.
