Researchers at CRANN, the Science Foundation Ireland funded nanoscience institute based in Trinity College Dublin (TCD), have discovered a new material that could transform the quality, lifespan and efficiency of flat screen computers, televisions and other devices.
Researchers at the Public University of Navarre (UPNA) are working on a project to design and manufacture composite PVC materials based on nanofillings and intended for multi-sectoral applications. The ultimate aim of the Vinilclay project is to control and optimize the properties of the plastic material; specifically, its photostability, thermal resistance and gas permeation.
The international symposium Nanofibers 2012 is held on June 4-5 in Tokyo, Japan and it is jointly held with 5th international conference of N3M "Nanofibers for the 3rd millennium" organized by Elmarco.
Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the University of Maryland, College Park, and Sandia National Laboratories built a series of nanowire batteries to demonstrate that the thickness of the electrolyte layer can dramatically affect the performance of the battery, effectively setting a lower limit to the size of the tiny power sources.
Remember Slinky, the coiled metal spring that "walks" down stairs with just a push, momentum and gravity? Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed their own version of this classic - albeit 10 million times smaller - as a novel technology for manipulating and measuring DNA molecules and other nanoscale materials.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is soliciting proposals to support long-term research in next-generation semiconductor technology, which is critical to the future of the U.S. electronics industry.
Gregg Gallatin, a researcher at the NIST Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology, has shown that combining a nineteenth century flux theorem with an eighteenth century mathematical operation provides a convenient technique for using scattered light to count nanoparticles and to characterize their shapes.
Keithley Instruments, Inc. has named Tina He as the recipient of the first annual Keithley Graduate Fellowship Award. Ms. He, a Case Western Reserve University Ph.D. student, was chosen for this award for her graduate research work on developing novel nanoscale devices and circuits with potential applications to advanced test and measurement.
New textbook covers the development of semiconductor nanomaterials, semiconductor thin films and bulk semiconductors, and provides an introduction to quantum mechanics theory and how that theory applies to optical and electrical properties of nanomaterial structures.
Imagine a world where the windows of high-rise office buildings are powerful energy producers, offering its inhabitants much more than some fresh air, light and a view. For the past four years a team of researchers from Flinders University has been working to make this dream a reality - and now the notion of solar-powered windows could be coming to a not too distant future near you.
Zu Beginn des Jahres stellte die Fraktion Buendnis 90/Die Gruenen eine Kleine Anfrage hinsichtlich des Umgangs der Bundesregierung mit den Ergebnissen und Empfehlungen der NanoKommission. Die Antwort der Bundesregierung liegt nun vor.
