New research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has allowed scientists to observe ion channels within the surface membrane for the first time, potentially offering insights for future drug development.
Researchers from NIST and the Naval Research Laboratory have developed a new way to introduce magnetic impurities in a semiconductor crystal, a technique that will enable researchers to selectively implant atoms in a crystal one at a time to learn about its electrical and magnetic properties on the atomic scale.
Im letzten Jahr haben das Fraunhofer IAO und das Fraunhofer-Institut fuer Angewandte Polymerforschung IAP, Potsdam-Golm, eine Technologieplattform fuer Mikroverkapselung ins Leben gerufen, von der Industrien unterschiedlicher Branchen, von der Papier- ueber die Chemieindustrie bis hin zur Personal Care-Industrie bereits enorm profitiert haben.
In leading the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh's first technology spin-off, Charles Gibson, an inorganic chemistry professor, hopes to make a big impact on the energy storage industry with the tiniest of particles.
Eighteen top national undergraduate science students, including one grand prize winner, have been named at the U.S. Department of Energy's second annual Science and Energy Research Challenge (SERCh,) held recently at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Scientists at Monash University, in collaboration with colleagues from the universities of Wollongong and Ulm in Germany, have produced tandem dye-sensitised solar cells with a three-fold increase in energy conversion efficiency compared with previously reported tandem dye-sensitised solar cells.
Research from North Carolina State University is revolutionizing the field of antenna design - creating shape-shifting antennas that open the door to a host of new uses in fields ranging from public safety to military deployment.
The Georgia Institute of Technology has been awarded a U.S. Air Force Center of Excellence to design nanostructures for energy harvesting and adaptive materials, and to develop tools to optimize critical cognitive processes of the modern warfighter.
Lara Estroff, assistant professor of materials science and engineering, and colleagues have taken a deep, detailed look at the way lab-created calcite crystals, similar to those found in nature, grow in tandem with proteins and other large molecules.
Scientists and engineers from two of the nation's largest industries - medicine and energy - will come together Dec. 7 with leading academicians to explore the synergies in moving oil and pumping blood.
