A novel strategy for engineering semiconductor materials can boost the performance of water-splitting solar cells for hydrogen production, according to a new study by researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
Dr. Barbara Karn of EPA's National Center for Environmental Research (NCER) is lead author on a recently published article in Environmental Health Perspectives entitled 'Nanotechnology and In Situ Remediation: A Review of the Benefits and Potential Risks'.
On Oct. 11-13, the best minds in carbon nanotechnology will gather at Rice University for a technical symposium during the Year of Nano, a series of events at the university celebrating the 25th anniversary of nano's big bang.
New analysis from Frost and Sullivan, Sensors for Agriculture and Environment Monitoring, finds that advanced techniques such as sensors, wireless communication technologies, and robotics are employed for precision agriculture/farming.
The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (abbreviated DFG, German Research Foundation in English) and the Japan Science and Technology Agency ( JST) are launching the research project 'Quantum Computing in isotopically Engineered Diamond' aiming to novel logic devices potentially enabling faster computing and unconditionally secure communications.
Last November, the Australian Secretary for Health released a public discussion paper inviting consultations on a Government proposal to strengthen regulation of industrial nanomaterials use in Australia. The deadline for submissions regarding the discussion paper is 5pm this Friday, February 12.
A world-renowned medical researcher discusses the key role that nanotechnology has begun to play in the detection and treatment of cancer in an article that will appear in the March 2010 edition of Mechanical Engineering magazine.
A major hurdle in the ambitious quest to design and construct a radically new kind of quantum computer has been finding a way to manipulate the single electrons that very likely will constitute the new machines' processing components or qubits. Princeton University's Jason Petta has discovered how to do just that.
For the first time, Carnegie Mellon University physicist Alex Evilevitch has directly measured the energy associated with the expulsion of viral DNA, a pivotal discovery toward fully understanding the physical mechanisms that control viral infection and designing drugs to interfere with the process.
Scientists have developed a near-field microscope that can measure the optical properties of e. g. semiconductor thin films with a spatial resolution and sensitivity long thought unachievable due to fundamental physical laws.
In a just-published paper in the magazine Science, IBM researchers demonstrated a radio-frequency graphene transistor with the highest cut-off frequency achieved so far for any graphene device - 100 billion cycles/second (100 GigaHertz).
