In a major speech at Policy Exchange, the Minister for Universities and Science in the UK set out details of how the GBP600 million announced for science in the Autumn Statement will support big data, space, robotics and autonomous systems, synthetic biology, regenerative medicine, agri-science, advanced materials and energy.
The nano tech Executive Committee is pleased to present nano tech 2013, the 12th International Nanotechnology Exhibition & Conference, from January 30 to February 1 at Tokyo Big Sight (Tokyo International Exhibition Center), East Exhibition Halls 4, 5, and 6 and Conference Tower.
Looking toward improved batteries for charging electric cars and storing energy from renewable but intermittent solar and wind, scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory have developed the first high-performance, nanostructured solid electrolyte for more energy-dense lithium ion batteries.
INERIS (französisches Institut für Umweltschutz und Umweltgefahren in der Industrie) hat den Aufbau einer in Frankreich einzigartigen Plattform zur Intensivierung der Expertise und der Forschung im Bereich Nanotechnologien beschlossen.
A UT Arlington bioengineering researcher has teamed with a UT Southwestern colleague to develop a nanoparticle drug delivery system that will help stimulate lung growth and function after partial lung removal or destructive lung disease.
The world's smallest tunnels have a width of a few nanometers only. Researchers from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Rice University, USA, have dug such tunnels into graphite samples. This will allow structuring of the interior of materials through self-organization in the nanometer range and tailoring of nanoporous graphite for applications in medicine and battery technology.
By carefully controlling the shape of water droplets with an ultraviolet laser, a team of researchers from Australia and France has found a way to coax silica nanoparticles to self-assemble into much more highly uniform silica wires.
