Panasonic has introduced a new electrical shaver - the ES8228S Vortex Nano Shaver with Nanotech Blades - which it claims 'delivers the sharpest blades for precise and accurate shaving, now with nanotechnology.'
The DC-based research and consulting firm Social Technologies recently released a series of 12 briefs that shed light on the top areas for technology innovation through 2025. The brief on 'nanomaterials,' by futurist Peter von Stackelberg, is the fourth trend in the series.
An online web seminar on January 31, 2008 presented by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) will deal wth nanotoxicology issues for assessing and managing occupational exposure risks for nanoparticles in the workplace.
A new generation of ultrafast fiber lasers being developed in Europe is creating more uses for the beams of high-intensity light, while lowering production and maintenance costs and increasing efficiency.
A research team led by Prof. PAN Jianwei with the University of Science and Technology of China, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, has been successful in performing Shor's algorithm, a quantum algorithm for factorization, on an optical quantum computer.
For dry machining, high hardness and high oxidation-resistance are both important. That's why superhard nanocomposites, which represent a new, advanced generation of wear protective coatings boosting such advantages as high hardness and high oxidation, are important to dry machining.
Nanomedicine pioneer Mauro Ferrari, Ph.D., and colleagues at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston have developed a new way to get intravenous agents for cancer and other diseases to the parts of the body where they‚??re needed most and to reduce the amount that goes to others areas where unintended injury can occur.
More than $1 million will go toward the NDSCS Nanoscience Technology program, which can provide unique opportunities to its students that will meet the current needs of business and industry in North Dakota and around the nation.
