After the 1st and 2nd Virtual Nanotechnology Poster Conference - NANOPOSTER 2011 and 2012 the 3rd virtual nanoevent is here. Share your science and results with 6400+ nanotechnology researchers and students from more than 80 countries.
The newly developed STED-RICS microscopy method records rapid movements of molecules in live samples. By combining raster image correlation spectroscopy (RICS) with STED fluorescence microscopy, researchers of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) opened up new applications in medical research, e.g. analyzing the dynamics of cell membranes at high protein concentrations.
Researchers discovered how to embed nanoparticles of the red metal into vermiculite, an inexpensive, inert compound sometimes used in potting soil. In preliminary tests on local lake water, it killed 100 percent of E. coli bacteria in the sample.
Xmark Media, the organisers of Photonex 2013, the UK's showcase photonics conference and exhibition announce the programme and speakers for the meeting on Nano and Bio-Imaging. This FREE-to-attend conference will be held on Wednesday 16th October as part of a diverse two-day event at the visitor-friendly Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
Rice University nanotechnology researchers have unveiled a solar-powered sterilization system that could be a boon for more than 2.5 billion people who lack adequate sanitation. The 'solar steam' sterilization system uses nanomaterials to convert as much as 80 percent of the energy in sunlight into germ-killing heat.
The properties of nanomaterials could be easier to predict in future. Scientists have ground metal into continuously finer powders in steps and prepared a detailed catalogue of how the structure of the metal grains changes depending on grain size. They discovered that the crystal lattices initially shrink, but expand again below a certain threshold grain size.
Researchers have developed a technology that suppresses output decline in crystalline silicon solar cells caused by potential-induced degradation (PID), by coating the glass substrate with a thin film of titanium oxide-based composite metal compound.
Researchers report considerable improvement in device performance of polymer-based optoelectronic devices. The new plasmonic material, can be applied to both polymer light-emitting diodes (PLEDs) and polymer solar cells (PSCs), with world-record high performance, through a simple and cheap process.
