At next week's SPIE Advanced Lithography Conference, to be held February 22 - 26 in San Jose, California, imec technologists contribute in a record number of over 30 papers showing their newest breakthroughs in advanced semiconductor lithography research.
Researchers detail a method that uses hydrogels - less than 100 nanometers in size - to sneak a particular type of small interfering RNA (siRNA) into cancer cells. Once in the cell the siRNA turns on the programmed cell death the body uses to kill mutated cells and help traditional chemotherapy do it's job.
Scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology have shown that by directing gold nanoparticles into the nuclei of cancer cells, they can not only prevent them from multiplying, but can kill them where they lurk.
RUSNANO CEO Anatoly Chubais and head of the Russian Federal Medical-Biological Agency Vladimir Uiba signed an agreement today to work jointly to ensure safe production and safe application of nanotechnology and nanomaterials.
A conference which will discuss emerging silicon-based nanotechnologies for advanced information AND communication devices which mean that mobile phones and computers will be even lighter, more functional and more economical, will be held at the University of Southampton next month.
Two new appointments at the University of Southampton's Nano Research Group will drive research into a whole new range of nano and bio-nano technologies and lead to global industrial research collaborations.
SabryCorp, Ltd. announced the upcoming NanoAgri Conference, scheduled for April 11-12, 2010 in Cairo, Egypt. It will host the leading experts in this field to discuss the revolutionary solutions nanotechnology offers the agricultural and food industries.
Toshiba Corporation and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) today announced joint development of a mask pattern optimizing technology that improves the accuracy of lithography for LSIs by approximately 20%.
By manipulating a mysterious quantum property of light known as entanglement, researchers are able to mount up to two photons on top of one another to construct a variety of quantum states of light - that is, build two-story quantum toy houses of any style and architecture.
