Researchers at AIST have developed continuous production equipment for metal nanoparticles and have succeeded in the practical use of a process where metal nanoparticles are synthesized continuously with uniform quality.
Professor Chang-Hwan Choi of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology was named as a recipient of the 2010 Young Investigator Program award by the Office of Naval Research.
Experiments can sometimes lead to the discovery of completely unanticipated phenomena. Such is the case with the remarkable behavior exhibited by peptide nanostructures (in the form of supramolecular filaments) observed during experiments carried out at the Advanced Photon Source.
Scientists at Argonne National Laboratory have identified a new class of silver-based catalysts for the production of the industrially useful chemical propylene oxide that is both environmentally friendly and less expensive.
The single-atom thick material graphene maintains its high thermal conductivity when supported by a substrate, a critical step to advancing the material from a laboratory phenomenon to a useful component in a range of nano-electronic devices.
Currently the world's fastest growing energy technology, photovoltaic production is increasing by roughly 50% each year. Find out more about current developments, network with other researchers and share research interests in a free online workshop on 'Nanotechnology and Photovoltaics' organized by the ICPC Nanonet project on Friday April 16 from 12.45-15.15 GMT (13.45-16.15 BST).
How severely do smog, diesel exhaust and secondhand smoke damage the lungs? What do pollen or nanoparticles trigger when they infiltrate the human body through inhaling? At this year's BIO Convention in Chicago from May 3 to 6, Fraunhofer researchers will present a new test system that can be used to investigate these questions.
IBM and the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST), Saudi Arabia's national research and development organization, today announced a research collaboration aimed at creating a water desalination plant powered by solar electricity, which could significantly reduce water and energy costs.
