The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") presented its first-ever 'Nano in the Mall' program on November 14, highlighting the role of nanotechnology in enabling energy efficiency and conservation.
Cornell University announced today that the Cornell Center for Advanced Computing (CAC) in partnership with Purdue University has received a National Science Foundation award to deploy The MathWorks MATLAB on the TeraGrid as an experimental computing resource.
Scientists have developed a simple, cheap, accurate test to find undetected landmines. Students from the University of Edinburgh have created a custom-made bacteria that glows green when it comes into contact with chemicals leaked by buried explosives.
NanoProfessor, a division of NanoInk, Inc. focused on nanotechnology education, announced today that Dakota County Technical College, in Rosemount, Minn., will serve as the inaugural pilot site of the NanoProfessor NanoScience Education Program.
Jena scientists from different disciplines founded a new network in order to utilize so-called nanocontainers for applications in the biomedical field. The research collaboration is now being funded by the State of Thuringia for the next 3 years with EUR 1.25 million.
Small amounts of oil leave a fluorescent sheen on polluted water. Oil sheen is hard to remove, even when the water is aerated with ozone or filtered through sand. Now, a University of Utah engineer has developed an inexpensive new method to remove oil sheen by repeatedly pressurizing and depressurizing ozone gas, creating microscopic bubbles that attack the oil so it can be removed by sand filters.
Physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated the first 'universal' programmable quantum information processor able to run any program allowed by quantum mechanics using two quantum bits (qubits) of information.
In order to effectively fight pathogens, even at remote areas of the human body, immune cells have to move quickly and in a flexible manner. Scientists have now deciphered the mechanism that illustrates how these mobile cells move on diverse surfaces.
Synopsys, Inc., a world leader in software and IP for semiconductor design, verification and manufacturing and KACST, the King Abdulaziz City of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia, today signed an agreement to work together to promote a knowledge-based society in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The impact of nanotechnology developments on the current state of medicine and their implications for the future will be explored at the third annual Global Symposium on NanoBioTechnology, 'New Directions in NanoHealth: Diagnostics, Therapies, Drug Delivery, NanoSafety' on November 19-20, 2009 at California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA.
