A dedicated laboratory space on the UC Riverside campus moves Bourns College of Engineering another step closer to a more comprehensive nanoengineering center. The space at Pierce Hall is now home to an advanced metal, organic, chemical, vapor, deposition (MOCVD) reactor.
Researchers from RIKEN Advanced Science Institute in Wako have developed a method to immobilize oligonucleotides on gold nanoparticle surfaces with precise control over their number and geometric arrangement.
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany announced today that it has selected an accomplished physician to head a next-generation NanoHealth initiative that will focus on education, research, and deployment of nanotechnology enabled improvements in occupational, public, and environmental health and safety.
Scientists at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) and Harvard University have thrown the lid off a new toolbox for building nanoscale structures out of DNA, with complex twisting and curving shapes.
Raising prospects for building a practical quantum computer, physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated sustained, reliable information processing operations on electrically charged atoms (ions).
In a major effort to accelerate the scientific breakthroughs needed to build a new 21st-century energy economy, U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced the delivery of $377 million in funding for 46 new multi-million-dollar Energy Frontier Research Centers (EFRCs) located at universities, national laboratories, nonprofit organizations, and private firms across the nation.
A team of scientists and researchers is working to find ways the unique molecular properties of DNA can be exploited to sort single-walled structures so they will have the same physicochemical properties.
The one-day conference addressed the latest developments and advances in the applications of micro and nanotechnology in food and drink and looked at global regulations and the opportunities and challenges in this area.
Researchers at the University of Arizona are chipping away at problems like how to employ solar at the utility-generating plant level, how to harness it to charge the newly indispensable products of the day - cell phones, MP3 players, laptops - what to do at night and when clouds halt the energy giveaway from the sky.
The International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health is seeking submissions for a special issue provisionally titled, 'Human and Environmental Exposure Assessment for Nanomaterials', guest edited by Vladimir Murashov, PhD, Special Assistant to the Director, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
