The Sixth Biennial International Congress on the relationship between neurobiology and nano-electronics titled "The Eye and The Chip" will bring together the world's leading researchers involved in advancing artificial human vision at Henry Ford Community College Sept. 13-15, 2010.
In what could be a step toward higher efficiency solar cells, an international team including University of Michigan professors has invalidated the most commonly used model to explain the behavior of a unique class of materials called highly mismatched alloys.
The California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA has announced plans to collaborate with Hamamatsu Photonics Corp., a leading developer and manufacturer of photon detectors and camera systems, to apply nanoscience and nanotechnology to projects having global importance in health, medicine, energy and the environment.
Using a one-of-a-kind instrument designed and built at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), an international team of researchers have 'unveiled' a quartet of graphene's electron states and discovered that electrons in graphene can split up into an unexpected and tantalizing set of energy levels when exposed to extremely low temperatures and extremely high magnetic fields.
Researchers from ETH Zurich's Institute for Field Theory and High Frequency Electronics have developed new surfaces for radar absorption. Thanks to this multifaceted application, window panes could even double up as solar panels in future.
Scientists at the UK's National Physical Laboratory have developed a new strategy for quicker and more precise detection of biomarkers - proteins which indicate disease. The work could pave the way for new tools to detect early stages of Alzheimer's and cancer at the molecular level.
Unter der Leitung von Dr. Jan Hamaekers widmen sich die Fraunhofer-Forscher der Simulation neuer Materialien auf der Nano-, Mikro- und Makro-Skala auf Hochleistungs-Parallelrechnern. Dabei nutzen sie moderne numerischen Multiskalen-Methoden aus der Quantenmechanik, Molekueldynamik und der Kontinuumsmechanik.
The experiments conducted in the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences on super-thin liquid-crystal films created on water surface allowed the surprisingly slow and continuous rotational motion of molecules, rotating 'in unison', to be observed nearly with the naked eye.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Center for Environmental Research (NCER), invites applications for the Science to Achieve Results (STAR) Fellowships for graduate environmental study for master's and doctoral level students.
Potenziale und Herausforderungen von Innovationen aus der Material- und Nanotechnologieforschung zeigt der im Auftrag des Bundesministeriums fuer Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) vom VDI Technologiezentrum organisierte Branchendialog auf der Messe IFAT Entsorga in Muenchen am 14. September 2010.
