The Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN), is pleased to announce that its disease diagnostics technology, the MicroKit, has won the Silver Award at the Asian Innovation Awards 2011 organized by The Wall Street Journal Asia.
A team of scientists working at Argonne National Laboratory's Center for Nanoscale Materials has successfully carved ultrananocrystalline diamond thin films into nanowires, boosting the material's functionality and providing potential improvements to the fabrication of biosensors.
As the director of Arizona State University's (ASU) LeRoy Eyring Center for Solid State Science, Thomas Sharp now leads the facility that played an integral role in his graduate education and his continuing research as an ASU professor.
Researchers in Korea have developed fully functional flexible non-volatile resistive random access memory (RRAM) where a memory cell can be randomly accessed, written, and erased on a plastic substrate.
A nanocomposite hard probe inserted in the cerebral cortex of a rat model turns nearly as pliable as the surrounding gray matter in minutes, and induces less of the tough scarring that walls off hard probes that do not change, researchers at Case Western Reserve University have found.
Researchers from the NIST Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology have led the development of a new technique for efficiently out-coupling photons from epitaxially-grown quantum dots directly into a standard single-mode optical fiber.
The institute acquired an automatic TEL wafer prober in order to meet the requirements of latest measuring tasks related to capacity, quality and positioning accuracy within a large temperature range. Moreover future wafer test and characterization requirements will be developed and verified by means of an additional system.
A discovery by physicists at UC Santa Barbara may earn silicon carbide - a semiconductor commonly used by the electronics industry - a role at the center of a new generation of information technologies designed to exploit quantum physics for tasks such as ultrafast computing and nanoscale sensing.
