First place in an EU competitive call on "Unconventional Computing" was awarded to a collaborative proposal coordinated by Prof. John McCaskill from the RUB Faculty of Chemistry and Biochemistry. The project MICREAgents plans to build autonomous self-assembling electronic microreagents that are almost as small as cells.
Wissenschaftler haben beobachtet, dass in Nanostrukturen bei sehr tiefen Temperaturen ein bislang etabliertes Naturgesetz verletzt wird. Diese Entdeckung könnte wichtige Konsequenzen für den Bau eines Quantencomputers haben.
Researchers have developed a display technology that requires a much simpler architecture for operation. They demonstrated that combining a thin perforated gold film with a liquid crystal layer is all that it takes to make an efficient color filter.
While study of the binding properties of membrane proteins is essential, detailed analysis of these complex entities is tricky. Now, Nongjian Tao, Professor of Electrical Engineering, and director of the Center for Bioelectronics and Biosensors at Arizona State University's Biodesign Institute has devised a new technique for examining the binding kinetics of membrane proteins.
A researcher at Arizona State University's Biodesign Institute has found a clever way to measure catalytical reactions of single nanoparticles and multiple particles printed in arrays, which will help characterize and improve existing nanoparticle catalysts, and advance the search for new ones.
A joint research group consisting of the Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute (SPring-8), Kyoto University, and the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) succeeded in fabricating a crystalline thin film with a film thickness of nanometer order, in which molecules of a 3-dimensionally strong porous coordination polymer (PCP) are arranged (oriented) in a designated direction, and demonstrated that this thin film has a reversible gas adsorption/desorption reaction function.
The First International Symposium on Nanomedicine in Drug Delivery and Cancer Diagnosis, held at the University of Delaware from Aug. 16-17, not only enabled researchers to share their latest findings but also provided a venue to launch new partnerships.
Last week, NT-MDT hosted the webinar "AFM imaging of DNA related structures". The speaker of the webinar was noted scientist Dr. Alexander Kotlyar, Professor of Tel Aviv University, Israel. The webinar is now available in a set of three videos
Holomic LLC, a startup company seeking to commercialize a groundbreaking technology developed at UCLA that turns simple cell phones into powerful microscopes has joined UCLA's on-campus technology incubator program at the California NanoSystems Institute.
When twins are forced to share, it can put a significant strain on their relationship. While this observation is perhaps unsurprising in the behavior of children, it is less obvious when it comes to nanoparticles.
By manipulating different types of light, including UV and visible light, researchers are able to alter the critical temperatures of superconducting materials. This finding adds to a growing toolbox for controlling and improving the technology.
The European Commission's Expert Advisory Group on nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new production technologies published five orientation papers with recommendations on how innovation in the industrial technology sectors could be better supported in the future, for instance, with Horizon 2020.
