This week, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) issued interim guidance for medical screening and hazard surveillance for workers potentially exposed to engineered nanoparticles.
Matthew Doty, assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Delaware, has received a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development Award for his work on quantum dot molecules.
University of Pittsburgh researchers have created a nanoscale one-stop shop, a single platform for creating electronics at a nearly single-atom scale that could yield advanced forms of such technologically important devices as high-density memory devices and transistors and computer processors.
An innovative and easily implemented technique in which nanoscale elements precisely assemble themselves over large surfaces could soon open doors to dramatic improvements in the data storage capacity of electronic media.
The scientific field that focuses on the ultra-small - nanotechnology - will play the biggest single role in the 237th National Meeting and Exhibition of the American Chemical Society, which takes place in Salt Lake City from March 22-26.
A new imaging technique developed by researchers at the University of Illinois overcomes the limit of diffraction and can reveal the atomic structure of a single nanocrystal with a resolution of less than one angstrom.
An international team of scientists, led by a Princeton University group, has observed an exciting and strange behavior in electrons' spin within a new material that could be harnessed to transform computing and electronics.
Before you can design the perfect nanoparticle catalyst, you first need to understand the fundamental science that governs their reactivity, say scientists from the US. And they claim to have done just that, using single molecule spectroscopy to reveal that nanocatalyst surface properties respond to changes to the concentration of reactants.
