Applications of nanotechnology to electronics, photonics and renewable energy will be the focus of a joint forum to be held from August 10 to 14, 2009 at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
DARPA is providing $1.4 million to a Phase III research project led by the Argonne National Laboratory to develop high-performance integrated diamond microelectro-mechanical system (MEMS) and complementary metal-oxide-semiconductors devices (CMOS) for radar and mobile communications using an Argonne developed and patented Ultrananocrystalline Diamond film technology.
A new and better method for accelerating bone formation in cases of orthopedic injuries and conditions, such as osteoporosis, fractures and disc disorders, has been developed by Nadav Kimelman at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's Faculty of Dental Medicine.
The high production cost of electricity from silicon-based solar cells has limited the use of the technology. Low cost solar cells with high cell performance are highly desirable and organic solar cells could be the answer.
A device that removes arsenic from groundwater will compete against a nanotechnology-based drug delivery system and eight other novel technology innovations at the 2008 ASME Innovation Showcase (ASME IShow) to be held Oct. 31, in Boston.
A chemistry professor at the University of Connecticut and his graduate students have published new results in Nature Nanotechnology showing how they isolated a particular type of carbon nanotube from a sample and manipulated it in a way that could have broad applicability in drug and gene delivery, electronic devices, and nanotechnology research.
Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) today joined with researchers at Stanford University to announce multiple ?firsts? demonstrated with carbon nanotubes to produce CMOS-compatible working circuits on a wafer scale.
