Researchers at the University of Delaware have conducted high-performance computer modeling to investigate a new approach for ultrafast DNA sequencing based on tiny holes, called nanopores, drilled into a sheet of graphene.
Supported by the Ministry of Education and Science, members of top Russian research institutes and companies developing nanocarbon materials will participate in the Exhibition and the related scientific event.
A new cooperation will support Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research's (KISR) endeavor to establish a 13.5 million Kuwait Dinars nanotechnology center that is to be funded by the Kuwaiti Government.
Researchers at The University of Texas at Dallas and Virginia Tech have created an undersea vehicle inspired by the common jellyfish that runs on renewable energy and could be used in ocean rescue and surveillance missions.
A new class of biomedical diagnostic devices are among the possible uses for the optical sensing technologies developed in Holger Schmidt's lab at UC Santa Cruz. To help Schmidt assess the commercial potential of his work, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded his team a $50,000 Innovation Corps grant.
In the continual quest for better thermoelectric materials - which convert heat into electricity and vice versa - researchers have identified a liquid-like compound whose properties give it the potential to be even more efficient than traditional thermoelectrics.
Researchers working for the EU-funded research project SOPHIED have discovered that a fungus from the Solomon Islands produces special enzymes that act as nano-bio-catalysts. These components help to trigger a chemical reaction between two different basic ingredients and turn it into a dye.
Researchers have developed a new method for the boron-doping of two dimensional carbon materials, which is expected to be a promising approach towards the development of highly efficient electron transporting materials for organic electronics.
The NT conferences are the most influential meetings focusing on nanotube research and have been held for the past 12 years around the world. The thirteenth will take place in 2012 in Brisbane, Australia.
