Scientists and researchers from the Photovoltaic and Optoelectronic Devices group from the Universitat Jaume I, led by Professor Juan Bisquert, have developed, using nanotechnology, a device with semiconductor materials which generate hydrogen independently in water using only sunlight.
A team from the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) has developed a technique to measure internal cell temperatures without altering their metabolism. This finding could be useful when distinguishing healthy cells from cancerous ones, as well as learning more about cellular processes.
Researchers from A*STAR's Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) and their commercial partners have developed a new plastic that reflects just 0.09 - 0.2% of the visible light hitting its surface.
Informationspflichten von Seiten der Landesbehoerden fuer besonders besorgniserregende Stoffe im Rahmen der europaeischen Chemikalienrichtlinie REACH werden momentan nur unzureichend erfuellt. Das geht aus einer Antwort der Bundesregierung auf eine Kleine Anfrage der Fraktion Buendnis 90/Die Gruenen hervor.
Ion bombardment of metal surfaces is an important, but poorly understood, nanomanufacturing technique. New research using sophisticated supercomputer simulations has shown what goes on in trillionths of a second. The advance could lead to better ways to predict the phenomenon and more uses of the technique to make new nanoscale products.
A special feature in this week's issue of the journal Science highlights protein array technology, touching on research conducted by Joshua LaBaer, director of the Biodesign Institute's Virginia G. Piper Center for Personalized Diagnostics.
A new study shows that the availability of hydrogen plays a significant role in determining the chemical and structural makeup of graphene oxide, a material that has potential uses in nano-electronics, nano-electromechanical systems, sensing, composites, optics, catalysis and energy storage.
The expert on nanosecurity affairs for the European Commission, Giorgios Katalagarianakis, explained the guidelines which would guide the European projects on nanosecurity from 2013 during the symposium, "Questions of security and regulatory challenges of nanomaterials", Questions of security and regulatory challenges of nanomaterials".
