Astronomers using data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope have, for the first time, discovered buckyballs in a solid form in space. Prior to this discovery, the microscopic carbon spheres had been found only in gas form in the cosmos.
To correlate TiO2 surface features with ET, scientists compared the photoinduced ET dynamics from single quantum dots (QDs) to polycrystalline TiO2 thin films grown by atomic layer deposition with that of porous TiO2 nanoparticle films by using single-particle fluorescence spectroscopy.
Radiological Technologies University would like to present Dr. Renat Letfullin as he hosts his "Introduction to Nanomedicine" webinar. The goal for these webinars is to build awareness about the revolutionary possibilities that nanotechnology holds for the field of medicine.
New analyses of more than 4,000 scientific studies have concluded that a family of "miracle materials" called MOFs have a bright future in products and technologies - ranging from the fuel tanks in hydrogen-powered cars to muting the effects of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide - that are critical for solving some of the greatest global challenges of the 21st century.
Never get stranded with a dead cell phone again. A promising new nanotechnology called Power Felt, a thermoelectric device that converts body heat into an electrical current, soon could create enough juice to make another call simply by touching it.
Wissenschaftler der Uni Goettingen beschaeftigen sich in einem neuen Projekt mit der Erforschung von Spinwellencomputern. Das Rechnen mit Spinwellen koennte in Zukunft eine schnellere parallele Datenverarbeitung in Mikroprozessoren ermoeglichen.
New information from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) about how layered switching devices for novel computer memory systems work may now allow these structures to come to market sooner, helping bring about faster, lower-powered computers.
Researchers have developed a "soft template infiltration" technique for fabricating free-standing piezoelectrically active ferroelectric nanotubes and other nanostructures from PZT - a material that is attractive because of its large piezoelectric response.
