The topics discussed at the NATO Advanced Research Workshop 'Nanotechnology in the Security Systems' included nanophysics, nanotechnology, nanomaterials, sensors, biosensors security systems, explosive detection.
Physicists have developed new technology to study atomic vibration in small particles, revealing a more accurate picture of the structure of atomic clusters where surface atoms vibrate more intensively than internal atoms.
The National Institutes of Health is challenging science innovators to compete for prizes totaling up to $500,000, by developing new ways to track the health status of a single cell in complex tissue over time.
Researchers have developed a technology that allows a material to automatically read its environment and adapt to mimic its surrounding. The system is inspired by the skins of cephalopods, a class of marine animals which can change coloration quickly, both for camouflage and as a form of warning.
Scientists have discovered that bacterial nanowires (which conduct electricity, allowing certain bacteria to breathe) are actually extensions of the bacteria's outer membrane - not pili, as originally thought.
Neurotransmitters play an important role in the communication of nerve cells. Major details of the processes involved have been unclear until recently. Scientists have now shed light on these processes by using a new technique.
