Materials known as 'multiferroics' hold great promise as memory storage devices owing to coupling between their magnetic and electric properties. Alas, in the multiferroic materials known to date, this coupling typically is very weak and limited to low temperatures, hampering their uptake in commercial applications.
Bristol University has won funding for four new centres that will generate the scientists and engineers needed for Britain's future, it was announced today by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) - the UK funding body for science and engineering.
Researchers succeeded in demonstrating one of the most dramatic effects of the electron-electron repulsion: When the interactions between the electrons get too strong, a metal can suddenly become insulating.
The International Society for Quality Electronic Design announced today that it is accepting nominations for the 3rd annual ISQED Quality Award, dubbed as IQ-Award. The IQ-Award was established in 2007 to recognize individuals who have made significant and often lasting contributions to the field of quality in electronic design.
The book is designed to appeal to advanced undergraduates and graduate students in chemistry, materials science,and chemical engineering departments, by leading them stepwise from the elementary chemistry on which materials science depends, through a discussion of the different classes of materials, and ending with a description of how materials are used in devices and general technology.
The New York NanoBusiness Alliance today announced that President Vincent Caprio will address a group of top executives, active investors and government leaders at the fourth annual Axiom Capital Management 'Livingston Nanotechnology Conference,' being held on December 8 and 9 New York City.
Nobelprize.org, the official website of the Nobel Foundation, will provide live webcasts of the 2008 Nobel Peace Prize Award Ceremony from Oslo, Norway and the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony from Stockholm, Sweden on 10 December 2008. Nobel Lectures on 7-8 and 10 December will also be webcasted.
Im Auftrag des Bundesministerium fuer Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) praesentierte die VDI Technologiezentrum GmbH (VDI TZ) im Rahmen der Themenkampagne 'Welcome to Nanotech Germany' die deutsche Nanotechnologie in Moskau.
The latest issue of the International Journal of Nanotechnology (IJNT) introduces you to a collection of original papers representative of the research performed in Greece in the field of nanotechnology.
Scientists at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan have developed a new technique for the mass production of unique metal-complex-type organic nanotubes. It was found that the nanotubes can be obtained when an aqueous metal salt solution is added to an alcoholic suspension of amphiphilic molecules comprising glycylglycine and fatty acids.
Under the terms of agreement, Russian Academy of Science will assist RUSNANO in defining the key directions for development of the nanoindustry by using the methodology of scientific and technical forecast in various hi-tech industries.
