A new way to control the motion of fluid particles through tiny channels, potentially aiding the development of micro- and nano-scale technologies such as drug delivery devices, chemical and biological sensors, and components for miniaturized biological 'lab-on-a-chip' applications has been discovered by chemical engineers at The University of Texas at Austin.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have set the stage for building the 'evolutionary link' between the microelectronics of today built from semiconductor compounds and future generations of devices made largely from complex organic molecules.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Joint Quantum Institute (NIST/University of Maryland) have developed a new method for creating pairs of entangled photons, particles of light whose properties are interlinked in a very unusual way dictated by the rules of quantum physics. The researchers used the photons to test fundamental concepts in quantum theory.
A new report published today identifies and describes research and development priorities for the future of three critical, high-tech U.S. manufacturing areas - hydrogen energy technologies, nanomanufacturing, and intelligent and integrated manufacturing.
Children, adults and families throughout Tech Valley can receive an up-close look at the exciting world of nanotechnology when the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany holds its inaugural Community Day on Saturday, April 5 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex.
The NanoBusiness Alliance, a leading nanotechnology trade association and the Colorado Nanotechnology Alliance today announced that it is launching a new conference, The Nano Renewable Energy Summit, to be held in Denver, Colorado from July 20 ? 22, 2008.
Scientists at the Advanced Technology Institute of the University of Surrey and at the School of Chemistry in the University of Bristol have been awarded funding of nearly GBP 0.87M from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to investigate techniques using high-power, short-pulsed lasers for the production of important nanomaterials, including nanoclusters, nanotubes and nanorods of carbon and zinc oxide, with controllable electrical and optical properties.
The First Sino-German Frontiers of Science Symposium (SINOGFOS) was held from March 13-16, in Beijing, bringing together 60 or so young scholars from research institutions and universities of the two countries.
New conference addresses the legal and regulatory world of food and beverage packaging, including food security, the threat of bioterrorism, recalls, nanotechnology, food safety and sustainability issues.
Ohio State University engineers are developing a technology to coat jet engine turbine blades with zirconium dioxide -- commonly called zirconia, the stuff of synthetic diamonds -- to combat high-temperature corrosion.
A South Korean biotechnology professor agreed to retract two papers on anti-aging technology published in international science journals after the institute discovered he fabricated data, officials said.
'Nanoparticles in Biomedical Imaging: Emerging Technologies and Applications (Fundamental Biomedical Technologies)' is the title of a new book co-edited by Jeff W.M. Bulte, professor in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and affiliated faculty member of the Institute for NanoBioTechnology, and his colleague Mike M.J. Modo, of the Institute of Psychiatry at King?s College in London, UK.
