The Nano/Bio Interface Center at the University of Pennsylvania has been awarded $11.5 million from the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Centers of the National Science Foundation to continue to advance nanoscale research at the interface of physical and biological systems.
New research by MIT scientists suggests that carbon nanotubes could be formed into tiny springs capable of storing as much energy, pound for pound, as state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries, and potentially more durably and reliably.
Germany's photovoltaic industry is marked by yet another milestone ahead of this year's European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference + Exhibition (EU PVSEC), taking place from September 21 - 25 in Hamburg.
Scientists at Brookhaven National Laboratory have demonstrated a new scanning electron microscope capable of selectively imaging single atoms on the top surface of a specimen while a second, simultaneous imaging signal shows atoms throughout the sample's depth.
Researchers at the Institute for Hygiene and Biotechnology (IHB) at the Hohenstein Institute have successfully devised a special, optimised textile coating that allows adult human stem cells to colonize the surface fibres of textile implants.
Researchers led by Daniel Kohane, MD, PhD of Children's Hospital Boston, funded by the National Institutes of Health, have devised a solution that combines magnetism with nanotechnology to create an on/off switch for drug release inside the body.
Carbon Nanotubes machen Kunststoffe stabiler, haltbarer und elektrisch leitfaehig. Vom 20. bis 23. September steht dieser neue Verbundwerkstoff im Zentrum der vierten International Conference on Carbon Based Nanocomposites an der TU Hamburg-Harburg.
Julius Rebek, Jr. and Trevor J. Dale at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California (USA) have developed a new class of sensors that detect certain neurotoxins up to five orders of magnitude faster than previous reagents.
