Somewhat the way Harry Potter can cover himself with a cloak and become invisible, Cornell researchers have developed a device that can make it seem that a bump in a carpet -- or, indeed, any flat surface -- isn't there.
The OECD's Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials and Working Party on Nanotechnology are organizing a 'Conference on Potential Environmental Benefits of Nanotechnology: Fostering Safe Innovation-Led Growth' at the OECD Conference Centre in Paris, France, on July 15-17, 2009.
At the LASER World of Photonics 2009 in Munich the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology (ILT) will show for the first time the currently most powerful ultra-short-pulse laser module with an output of over 400 watts and pulse durations of less than 1 ps.
Einem Forscherteam um Professor Philip Tinnefeld vom Department Physik der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) Muenchen ist es nun gelungen, fluoreszierende Molekuele zu entwickeln, die sich durch zwei gegensaetzlich wirkende chemische Prozesse gezielt an- und ausschalten lassen.

When a spacecraft launches from Cape Canaveral, Fla., in the future, its cargo will include a small box containing a nano-fluidics experiment designed by scientists at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.
Rising seventh and eighth graders in the local region will have an opportunity to examine evidence like a crime scene investigator, launch a rocket and much more if they participate in the free Summer Science Day Camp at West Virginia University sponsored by WVNano.
Like tiny Jedi knights, tunable fluidic micro lenses can focus and direct light at will to count cells, evaluate molecules or create on-chip optical tweezers, according to a team of Penn State engineers.
