A collaborative effort between researchers from the London Centre for Nanotechnology, King's College London and UCL Chemistry has led to the first measurements of the electrostatic surface potential of individual DNA and avidin molecules with nanometre resolution using Kelvin Probe Force Microscopy in air.
Switzerland launches "Swiss Nano-Cube", the national information and learning platform dedicated to the topics of micro- and nanotechnologies for vocational schools, secondary schools and higher professional schools.
Mit dem Ziel, ein einfaches und minimal-invasives Testverfahren für das Parkinson-Syndrom zu entwickeln, haben sich Forscher des Bochum-Dortmunder Verbundprojektes "ParkCHIP" im Spitzentechnologiewettbewerb "Hightech.NRW" durchgesetzt.
Decades of research have failed to conclusively crack the mystery of how amyloid-associated diseases like Alzheimer's do so much damage, but new findings by researchers at RIKEN suggest that part of the answer may lie in the structural rearrangements observed in plaque-forming proteins.
NanoMarkets, an industry analyst firm, today announced a free white paper based on the firm's upcoming report, "Batteries and Ultra-Capacitors for the Smart Power Grid: Market Opportunities 2009-2016". The report will be released in mid July 2009.
Clemson scientist Stephen Klaine has been awarded two $400,000 EPA grants to study a subject that did not exist a decade ago. Klaine is part of the young field of nano-ecotoxicology: the investigation of the impact that nanoparticles have on the environment.
Science and technology are becoming increasingly involved in the world of art. Scientific advances and new technological instruments are opening new doors to fields of knowledge to which they had been previously closed. Art is one such case in point.
New developments in a substance which emits brilliant light could lead to a revolution in lighting for the home and office in five years, claims a leading UK materials scientist, Professor Colin Humphreys of Cambridge University.
Researchers from across Europe have united to build the largest quantum key distribution network ever built. The efforts of 41 research and industrial organisations were realised as secure, quantum encrypted information was sent over an eight node, mesh network.
