Using a technique called 'Maskless lithography' (ML2), researchers in the EU-funded 'Maskless lithography for IC manufacturing' (MAGIC) project are starting a new era in small scale IC production that will make the process faster, simpler and cheaper.
A new study from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute demonstrates how graphene foam can outperform leading commercial gas sensors in detecting potentially dangerous and explosive chemicals. The discovery opens the door for a new generation of gas sensors to be used by bomb squads, law enforcement officials, defense organizations, and in various industrial settings.
Professor Coleman's research investigates how to produce "nanosheets", flat sheets of materials that are just one atom thick, or about one hundred-thousandth the size of a human hair. These materials have potential in the development of thermoelectric devices and next generation batteries.
Stanford researchers have used nanoparticles of a copper compound to develop a high-power battery electrode that is so inexpensive to make, so efficient and so durable that it could be used to build batteries big enough for economical large-scale energy storage on the electrical grid - something researchers have sought for years.
Matthew Doty, assistant professor in the University of Delaware Department of Materials Science and Engineering, is co-author of two papers exploring novel methods for assembling quantum dots to control how electrons interact with light and magnetic fields for applications in next generation computing devices and solar energy capture.
Nano Science and Technology Consortium (NSTC), India announces the Nanotechnology Training (Certification) Programs for different fields of Science and Technology. With the availability of these kind of training programs in India, NSTC is looking forward to sensitize students, professionals and industries with requisite knowledge of Nanotechnology.
The CIC microGUNE research centre and the Biodonostia Institute have recently started testing a new technique for assessing the severity of inflammatory intestinal diseases, such as Crohn's Disease, in patients at the Donostia Hospital.
It is only since this year that organisations belonging to the Polish Academy of Sciences may establish companies to commercialize their scientific inventions. The present legal regulations have allowed the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy Sciences in Warsaw to take up shares in Scope Fluidics, a young spin-off company developing innovative microfluidic technologies.
SIMTech established Singapore's first Large Area Processing Research Programme as it sets sights on creating a new industry to produce innovative large area printed electronics and functional films that are cost-effective, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly.
) ISO/TS 80004-4:2011 gives terms and definitions for materials in the field of nanotechnologies where one or more components are nanoscale regions and the materials exhibit properties attributable to the presence of those nanoscale regions. ISO/TS 80004-5:2011 lists terms and definitions related to the interface between nanomaterials and biology.
Klappe, die erste... Der Startschuss fuer "nanospots" ist gefallen. Es handelt sich um den Wettbewerb zum 1. Nano-Kurzfilm-Festival fuer (Nachwuchs-)Wissenschaftler, mitinitiiert von der Martin-Luther-Universitaet Halle-Wittenberg und gefoerdert von der Volkswagenstiftung. Als Hauptgewinn winken 5000 Euro fuer den besten Spot zum Thema "Leben mit Nano: Der Mensch zwischen Natur und Hightech".
Led by a group at the University of Maryland (UMd), a multi-institution team of researchers has combined modern materials research and an age-old metallurgy technique to produce an alloy that could be the basis for a new class of sensors and micromechanical devices controlled by magnetism.
A team of university researchers, aided by scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), have succeeded in integrating a new, highly efficient piezoelectric material into a silicon microelectromechanical system (MEMS). This development could lead to significant advances in sensing, imaging and energy harvesting.
