Nanotechnology and genetic surveillance and are some of the many healthcare topics that will be featured at the American Association of Occupational Health Nurses? (AAOHN) 2008 Symposium and Expo April 25 through May 1 in Salt Lake City.
For almost half a century, scientists have struggled with plutonium contamination spreading further in groundwater than expected, increasing the risk of sickness in humans and animals. Researchers finally discover and study the structure of plutonium nanoclusters.
The world?s first commercial source of individual photons using diamond based quantum technology has been developed by Quantum Communications Victoria (QCV) within the School of Physics at The University of Melbourne, Australia.
Leading edge innovations in sustainable technologies for the environment, alternative energy, solar energy and advanced materials will be featured at UCR?s Bourns College of Engineering's major annual technology transfer conference Tuesday and Wednesday, May 13 and 14.
A revolutionary cancer treatment using microscopic magnets to enable 'armed' human cells to target tumours has been developed by researchers funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council.
Every year, more than 30 billion water bottles are added to America's landfills, creating a mountainous environmental problem. But if research at Missouri University of Science and Technology is successful, the plastic bottles of the future could literally disappear within four months of being discarded.
Two Dartmouth researchers have determined that the element chromium displays electrical properties of magnets in surprising ways. This finding can be used in the emerging field of spintronics, which might someday contribute to new and more energy-efficient ways of processing and storing data.
They may never win an Oscar, but scientists at Argonne National Laboratory have developed techniques for creating accurate movies of biological and chemical molecules, a feat only theorized up until now.
After powering the micro-electronics revolution, silicon could carve out an important new role in speeding the debut of ultra-clean fuel cell vehicles powered by hydrogen, researchers in China suggest.
