The Colorado Nanofabrication Laboratory at the University of Colorado at Boulder will host a symposium April 2 and a program of interactive, family-oriented outreach activities April 3 as part of NanoDays"2010, the third annual nationwide festival of educational programs about nanoscale science and engineering.
For the first time, researchers have been able to confine and study an individual protein, one that plays a key role in photosynthesis, without having to pin it down so tightly as to alter its fundamental behavior.
By watching how energy moves across a tiny device akin to a springing diving board, Cornell researchers are a step closer to creating extraordinarily tiny sensors that can instantly recognize harmful substances in air or water.
Riso DTU has now with Danish Gas Technology Center (DGC) as partner received support from the Danish Programme for Energy Technology Development and Demonstration (EUPD) to initialize a center which will eventually support industry with test, development, analysis, approval, certification, consultation, and training in the areas of fuel cell and hydrogen technologies.
The weird world of quantum mechanics describes the strange, often contradictory, behaviour of small inanimate objects such as atoms. Researchers have now started looking for ways to detect quantum properties in more complex and larger entities, possibly even living organisms.
Molekuele, die erst bei Bestrahlung mit Licht ihre biologische Funktion entfalten, koennten an genau definierter Stelle im Organismus 'angeschaltet' werden. Wissenschaftlern vom Leibniz-Institut fuer Molekulare Pharmakologie (FMP) und von der Technischen Universitaet Berlin ist es gelungen, solche lichtsensiblen molekularen Strukturen zu entwickeln.
According to recent news reports, manufacturing is showing clear signs of rebounding. Manufacturing's other good news: Eight game-changing innovations are about to enhance production on the factory floor.
More than 50 years old, this law is still in effect, but to extend it as long as 2020 will require a change from mere transistor scaling to novel packaging architectures such as so-called 3D integration, the vertical integration of chips.
Scientists have leaped over a major hurdle in efforts to begin commercial production of a form of carbon that could rival silicon in its potential for revolutionizing electronics devices ranging from supercomputers to cell phones.
Researchers at Stanford University have successfully developed brand new concept of organic lighting-emitting diodes (OLEDs) with a few nanometer of graphene as transparent conductor. This paved the way for inexpensive mass production of OLEDs on large-area low-cost flexible plastic substrate, which could be rolled up like wallpaper and virtually applied to anywhere you want.
Entries for the EUROPEAN BIOTECHNICA AWARD 2010 are now being accepted. European companies from the biotechnology sector and the life sciences have until 30 April 2010 to submit entries for this prize.
