The forum started with a plenary session "The Demand for Innovation" opened by Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Sergey Ivanov. He addressed the participants stating that Russia has shown its ability to create an effective mechanism for searching, evaluating and launching the hi-tech projects.
The Alliance for Nanotechnology in Cancer of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) is initiating a public private industry partnership called TONIC (Translation Of Nanotechnology In Cancer) to promote translational research and development opportunities of nanotechnology-based cancer solutions.
Murdoch University nano scientists have discovered that a eucalyptus plant native to south west WA has unique self-cleaning and water-repellent properties which could make it a gold mine for new nanotechnology applications.
At the Moscow RUSNANOTECH 2011, ETU and TEKLAB announced their partnership in commercializing the NanoLab, a highly cost-effective nanotechnology education laboratory for trans-disciplinary training of nanomaterials synthesis and analysis at universities.
The Institute of Microelectronics (IME), an Institute of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), today announce it has been awarded the ISO 13485:2003 (Medical Devices Standard) Certification for the design and development of medical devices.
Working with Picosun Oy, a Finland-based global manufacturer of ALD equipment, the Carleton researchers solved the problem, creating a copper precursor with the potential to meet the performance needs of global semiconductor foundries.
Power Sources Manufacturers Association announces to the power sources industry the availability of an advanced e-learning tutorial that covers the latest advances in the science, research and applications of nanotechnology.
While many books are dedicated to individual aspects of nanofabrication, there is no single source that defines and explains the total vision of the field. Filling this gap, Nanofabrication Handbook presents a unique collection of new and the most important established approaches to nanofabrication.
Plastic is getting a huge boost thanks to a team of European researchers that has found a new way to develop this material. An innovative 'recipe book' will help experts create the 'perfect plastic' with specific uses and properties.
With few exceptions, optical investigations on nanowires have so far been carried out almost exclusively by conventional optical microscopy, which has limited spatial resolution. Researchers have now developed a new method, called tip-enhanced near-field microscopy, which makes use of a tapered metal tip as an optical antenna.
