The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) today announced the recipients of its 2009 University Researcher Awards, Dr. Anantha Chandrakasan of MIT and Dr. Kang Wang of UCLA. The awards were presented at the annual SIA Washington conference on March 12.
Um den Transfer der wissenschaftlichen Nanotechnologieforschung in die industrielle Anwendung zu erleichtern, haben die IHKs der Metropolregion Stuttgart gemeinsam mit dem Fraunhofer IAO das Anwendungscluster Nanotechnologie initiiert.
An international research team, involving Professor Rajeev Ahuja at Uppsala University and researchers in the USA, set out to understand the mechanism behind the catalytic effects of carbon nanomaterials.
From June 17-18, 2009 in Saarbruecken, Germany, prominent experts will be discussing ethical nanotechnology issues at the SIZE MATTERS 2009 conference from the perspective of the natural sciences, medicine, philosophy, theology and law.
Researchers at the University of Miami and at the Universities of Tokyo and Tohoku, Japan, have been able to prove the existence of a 'spin battery', a battery that is 'charged' by applying a large magnetic field to nano-magnets in a device called a magnetic tunnel junction.
Exploring the new measurement and materials' characterization techniques needed to apply nanotechnology effectively to global energy challenges is the aim of an international workshop on April 26-28, 2009, at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at the University of Albany in New York.
MIT engineers have created a kind of beltway that allows for the rapid transit of electrical energy through a well-known battery material, an advance that could usher in smaller, lighter batteries - for cell phones and other devices - that could recharge in seconds rather than hours.
Eric D. Isaacs, a prominent University of Chicago physicist and senior administrator at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory, has been selected to become the next director of Argonne.
The NanoBusiness Alliance today announced the continuation of its NanoBusiness Talent program, which connects future scientists and high-tech companies by arranging summer internships for local high school students at Chicago-area nanotechnology companies with a grant from the Department of Energy.
A novel technique that enables researchers to push individual molecules into specifically arranged patterns recently allowed researchers at Stanford University to shatter the long held belief that one bit per atom is the limit for encoding information and reclaim the title of producers of the world's smallest letters.
