Light-sheet based microscopy (LSM), also known as single plane illumination microscopy (SPIM), is a state-of-the-art microscope imaging method in which a biological sample is illuminated with a thin sheet of light - provided by a laser beam narrowed to just a few microns across - coming from the side rather than from above or below as with traditional light sources.
To encourage industry engagement and promote nano and E&P cross sector opportunities, the pioneering EPNanoNet network, through a joint collaboration with The Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship, will host a Summit in Houston on September 12th delving deeper into significant nanotechnology developments.
Recently, the NanoHeal project has been granted funding by the Norwegian Research Council of Norway, through the Nano2021 program. In the NanoHeal project cryogelation will be one of the methods for engineering porous composite materials based on nanocellulose from wood.
Atomic orbital electrons react to change of nucleus electric charge following each beta decay and to flying nearby particles emitted from the nucleus. NCBJ physicists have simulated such processes for the 6He nuclei.
This interactive exhibit has been designed to engage family audiences in nanoscale science, engineering and technology. Hands-on exhibits present the basics of nanoscience and engineering, introduce some real world applications, and explore the societal and ethical implications of this new technology.
Knowing the position of missing oxygen atoms could be the key to cheaper solid oxide fuel cells with longer lifetimes. New microscopy research from the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory is enabling scientists to map these vacancies at an atomic scale.
A joint study by the University of Missouri and United States Geological Survey found that they can be toxic to aquatic animals. The researchers urge that care be taken to prevent the release of CNTs into the environment as the materials enter mass production.
NANOTEC and Asia Nano Forum jointly organized the 1st Asia Nano Forum Summit Technical Seminar in Bangkok on "Nano Labeling and Safety Issues" and "Green Nanotechnology". Invited speakers from 15 of ANF member economics participated in the technical presentation and discussion.
