Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories have created the first carbon nanotube device that can detect the entire visible spectrum of light, a feat that could soon allow scientists to probe single molecule transformations, study how those molecules respond to light, observe how the molecules change shapes, and understand other fundamental interactions between molecules and nanotubes.
This report provides preliminary analyses and recommendations as well as brief summaries of background documents listed in the operational plan relevant to phase 1 of the project on exposure measurement and exposure mitigation.
According to a progress report, the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) is on the right course to respond to the EU's socioeconomic needs, and is particularly relevant with regard to the challenges posed by the current financial crisis.
Penn State materials researchers have reported the largest known energy storage capacity for a bulk glass, making it a potential new candidate for capacitors for electric vehicles and portable power applications.
Freiburger Forscher vom Fraunhofer-Institut fuer Physikalische Messtechnik IPM haben in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Rowland Institute der Harvard University erstmals ein Verfahren entwickelt, mit dem in einem Hologramm gleichzeitig Phase und Amplitude eingestellt werden koennen.
Join ITT Visual Information Solutions, CytoViva, and Bruxton Corporation for a live web seminar demonstrating hardware and software solutions for spectral microscopy applications in nanomedicine, nanomaterials, nanotoxicology, pathogen diagnostics, and nanoparticle biomarkers.
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.
