Am 1. Dezember 2011 fand in Stuttgart ein Kongress "Kleine Teilchen, grosse Fragen! Verbraucheraspekte im Umgang mit Nanotechnologien" statt. Die Dokumentationsbroschuere zum Kongress ist nun als PDF erhaeltlich.
You wouldn't know it from appearances, but a metal cube the size of a toaster, created at the University of Alberta, is capable of performing the same genetic tests as most fully equipped modern laboratories - and in a fraction of the time.
Am 19. April 2012 fand in der Bundesanstalt fuer Arbeitsschutz und Arbeitsmedizin in Dresden die Nano-Tagung der Saechsischen Arbeitsschutz-Konferenz unter dem Thema "Nanotechnologie - traditioneller Arbeitsschutz fuer innovative Materialien?" statt.
The crystal structure of nanotwinned copper exhibits many closely-spaced interruptions in an otherwise regular atomic array. Researchers have now performed a large-scale numerical simulation that sheds light on this relationship.
Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Yale University have developed a new concept for use in a high-speed genomic sequencing device that may have the potential to substantially drive down costs.
At this year's Spring Conference of the European Akademy Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler, experts from different involved fields of research presented several aspects of the development in nanomedicine: recent trends in the progress of nanotechnological methods in medical applications, risk and other ethical issues as well as the social impact of nanomedicine in the context of science, industry and the public.
Researchers at the University of Utah have recently formed a startup company called Navillum Nanotechnologies, and their efforts are gaining national attention with help from a team of M.B.A. students from the David Eccles School of Business.
