Forscher der Universität Regensburg haben Nanoteilchen entwickelt, die künftig in der Augenheilkunde eingesetzt werden könnten. Die nur etwa 50 Nanometer grossen Teilchen setzen sich - nach der Injektion in den Blutkreislauf - an der Wand der Blutgefässe fest, die die Netzhaut versorgen.
A patent-pending technology to produce nanospheres developed by a research team at North Dakota State University, Fargo, could enable advances across multiple industries, including electronics, manufacturing, and biomedical sectors.
The Graphene Commercialisation and Applications: Global Industry and Academia Summit 2013, (25th-26th June, 2013, London), is the first forum of its kind aimed at establishing the real, commercially viable industrial applications of graphene, and expediting its role as a game-changing technology.
The second edition of Protein Nanotechnology Protocols Instruments and Applications expands upon the previous editions with current, detailed chapters that provide examples of proteins which are now being harnessed for a wide range of applications, some more developed than others.
AtMol, ICT-FET Integrated Project, is pleased to announce the International Workshop on Imaging and Manipulating of Adsorbates using Dynamic Force Microscopy, to be held from the 16th to the 17th of April in Nottingham (UK).
A newly developed membrane used to separate waste from water could become key in the treatment of pollutants ranging from acid mine drainage to oil-containing wastewater, as well as in processes ranging from desalination to kidney dialysis.
Georgia Institute of Technology and Purdue University researchers have developed efficient solar cells using natural substrates derived from plants such as trees. Just as importantly, by fabricating them on cellulose nanocrystal (CNC) substrates, the solar cells can be quickly recycled in water at the end of their lifecycle.
Engineers at the University of California, San Diego are developing nanofoams that could be used to make better body armor; prevent traumatic brain injury and blast-related lung injuries in soldiers; and protect buildings from impacts and blasts. It's the first time researchers are investigating the use of nanofoams for structural protection.
The Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University announced today that it was awarded a $9.25 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to further advance a blood-cleansing technology developed at the Institute with prior DARPA support, and help accelerate its translation to humans as a new type of sepsis therapy.
Scientists have developed a cloak that is just micrometres thick and can hide three-dimensional objects from microwaves in their natural environment, in all directions and from all of the observers' positions.
A new biosensing assay which can specifically and rapidly detect colorectal cancer biomarkers in solution has been developed by researchers at the London Centre for Nanotechnology and other UCL departments, introducing the concept of 'spinostics'.
