A new membrane developed at the University of Rochester's Laboratory for Laser Energetics blocks gas from flowing through it when one color of light is shined on its surface, and permits gas to flow through when another color of light is used.
This three-year ENIAC (European Nanoelectronics Initiative Advisory Council) project aims to achieve substantial advances in state-of-the-art medical 3D-imaging platforms by focusing on the diagnosis and therapy of serious diseases of the central nervous system and brain.
Through advancements in nanotechnology, Professor Babak Parviz, from the University of Washington, will explain at a NASA talk how contact lenses have been converted into systems that can complete extraordinary tasks.
The current tendency in bone tissue engineering is developing materials that temporarily substitute for the bone while inducing its regeneration in such a way that this, temporary material, disappears as the bone recovers its space.
Einem Team von Forschern der Uni Hamburg und des spanischen Forschungszentrums IMDEA Nanoscience ist es gelungen, Materialien auf chemischem Wege herzustellen, die sich durch Selbstorganisation zu zweidimensionalen Nanostrukturen zusammenfinden.
Researchers report the creation of pseudo-magnetic fields far stronger than the strongest magnetic fields ever sustained in a laboratory - just by putting the right kind of strain onto a patch of graphene.
Physicists at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) have found that when graphene is stretched in a specific way it sprouts nanobubbles in which electrons behave in a bizarre way, as if they are moving in a strong magnetic field.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, known for having one of the top research programs in the country for batteries and fuel cells for vehicle applications, has decided to enter another area in the battery world. It has been granted $1.6 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds to develop a novel storage device for the electric grid.
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have developed a new fluorescent biosensor that could aid in the development of an important class of drugs that target a crucial class of proteins called G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs).
