Cyber and nanotechnologies took full focus for 26 of the Partnership for Peace Consortium's Emerging Security Challenges Working Group during a two-day workshop hosted at the Swedish National Defense College in Stockholm November 20-22.
Thailand is willing to tell it all at the Seed and Need Seminar on January 31 during nanotech 2014 at Tokyo Big Sight, Tokyo, Japan. The title of the presentation is 'Nanotechnology Development in Thailand'.
Researchers have been working on the optimization of the third-generation sequencing technique based on nanopore. They found that long chain DNA with low salt concentration is more conducive to the nanopore sequencing process.
From Sept. 15 to Dec. 22, the 2014 Cornell Council for the Arts (CCA) Biennial, 'Intimate Cosmologies: The Aesthetics of Scale in an Age of Nanotechnology', will feature several events and principal projects by faculty and student investigators and guest artists.
Researchers used a unique optical metamaterial with a refractive index of zero to generate 'phase mismatch-free nonlinear light', meaning the generated light waves move through the material gaining strength in all directions. This phase mismatch-free quality holds promise for quantum computing and networking, and future light sources based on nonlinear optics - the phenomena that occur when interactions with light modify a material's properties.
Scientists from NIST and Sandia National Laboratories have added something new to a family of engineered, high-tech materials called metal-organic frameworks: the ability to conduct electricity. Conductive MOFs have the potential for use in a variety of applications including sensors for detecting gases and toxic substances.
Research scientists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) Electronics Science and Technology Division in collaboration with researchers at University at Buffalo-The State University of New York (SUNY) demonstrate the possibility for new optical devices using graphene for communications, imaging and signal processing.
A revolutionary instrument that will expedite the discovery of new, artificial forms of matter with unprecedented electronic and magnetic properties will be funded by a $4.13 million gift from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
Researchers have developed a technique to form a virtual wall for oily liquids that will help confine them to a certain area, aiding researchers who are studying these complex molecules. This development will have future implications in the guided delivery of oil and effective blockage of oil spreading.
An international, multidisciplinary research team has developed an ultrathin membrane that can stick to skin and carry arrays of diagnostic sensors and stimulatory components. The 'electronic skin' allows remote patient monitoring and may someday be used to deliver treatments.
A tiny capsule that can carry out a chemical analysis of the contents of one's stomach could identify the presence of so-called 'occult' blood at very low levels. The data is automatically broadcast to an external monitoring device for detection of early stage stomach cancer by one's physician.
Scientists are reporting development of a squishy gel that when compressed - like at a painful knee joint - releases anti-inflammatory medicine. The new material could someday deliver medications when and where osteoarthritis patients need it most.
