Materials researchers from Saarbruecken developed a low friction coating combining two properties: It shows lubrication properties similar to grease and oil and it protects from corrosion. The new material is suitable for the coating of metals and metal alloys, such as steel, aluminium or magnesium.
Today, the second edition of the International Conference on Silicon Photovoltaics takes off in Leuven (Belgium). The Si PV conference is a high-level scientific conference on advanced crystalline silicon solar cell technology.
The National Nanomanufacturing Network is conducting a survey of nanomanufacturing community members to better understand the avenues that people use to stay informed about advances in nanomanufacturing.
The conception of NanoThailand 2012: "Nanotechnology for the Benefits of Mankind", which will be held during April 9-11, 2012 in Khon Kaen, Thailand, is to be a premier international conference and a series of exhibition in Nanotechnology, bringing together world-leading researchers, Thai scientists, entrepreneurs, business partners and exhibitors, in several focused areas of science and technology at the nanoscale.
This week, North Carolina's advocate for nanobiotechnology innovation, the Center of Innovation for Nanobiotechnology (COIN), is co-hosting a rare opportunity for Triangle life science and technology professionals to gain access to some of the top talent on nanotechnology from across the nation representing academia, government and private sector interests.
Scientists have taken an important step forward in developing a new material using nano-sized magnets that could ultimately lead to new types of electronic devices, with greater capacity than is currently feasible.
Women in Europe for a Common Future, an international network of over 100 women's, environmental and health organisations implementing projects in 40 countries and advocating globally for a healthy environment, has released a position paper on nanoparticles and nanotechnology: Nano - The great unknown
Physicists agree that laminar flow of liquids has been well understood and described in detail from the theoretical point of view. Researchers at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw have, however, observed that droplets of chemical substances flowing in a carrier liquid inside microchannels - although presenting laminar flow inside them - present multiple mysteries.
