How to manufacture printed electronics - Live demonstration

On April 17-18, the Printed Electronics Europe conference and exhibition in Berlin, Germany, will feature "Manufacturing Street" - a live, multi-technology, printed electronics demonstration. Being part of the exhibition, this years' Manufacturing Street brings together seven organisations in the supply chain who will demonstrate a number of printing and process steps in interactive sessions throughout the event, printing functional inks and assembling printed and conventional electronics devices.

Quantum computers counting on carbon nanotubes

Carbon nanotubes can be used as quantum bits for quantum computers. A study by physicists at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen has shown how nanotubes can store information in the form of vibrations. Up to now, researchers have experimented primarily with electrically charged particles. Because nanomechanical devices are not charged, they are much less sensitive to electrical interference.

Stem cells entering heart can be tracked with nano-'hitchhikers'

The promise of repairing damaged hearts through regenerative medicine - infusing stem cells into the heart in the hope that these cells will replace worn out or damaged tissue - has yet to meet with clinical success. But a highly sensitive visualization technique developed by Stanford University School of Medicine scientists may help speed that promise's realization.

New safeguards foster innovation in nanomaterials

European researchers in the Nanodevice project are investigating the safety aspects of nanomaterial production. Their plan laid down in 2009 was to develop new concepts, reliable methods and portable devices for detecting, analysing and monitoring airborne ENMs in the workplace. The latest feedback from the team suggests the project has delivered on its promise.
