Tissue engineering meets nanotechnology: A look at tomorrow's medicine

Tissue engineers seek to develop functioning substitutes for damaged tissues and organs. Generally, this means seeding cells onto 3-dimensional porous scaffolds made of biomaterials, which provide mechanical support and instructive cues for the developing engineered tissue. Now it's time to go to the next level, and make complex tissues that can really do things - contract, release growth factors, conduct electrical signals and more. Things our own cells and tissues do.

Semiconductor Technology for Ultra Large Scale Integrated Circuits and Thin Film Transistors III

This conference is organized with the intention of again providing a forum for continued discussion on the latest developments in two of the most critical high-tech fields, i.e., Ultra Large Scale Integrated Circuits (ULSIC) and Thin Film Transistor (TFT). It is aimed at the exchange of state-of-the-art information among those involved in research, development, and production of semiconductor materials, processes, and devices.

Fastest movie in the world recorded - a method to film nanostructures

Scientists at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin fuer Materialien und Energie (HZB) and the Technische Universitaet Berlin (TUB) now present a method that takes us a good step towards producing a "molecular movie". They can record two pictures at such a short time interval that it will soon be possible to observe molecules and nanostructures in real time.

Spaser - groundbreaking nano-laser for medicine and electronics

The physical length of an ordinary laser cannot be less than one half of the wavelength of its light, which limits its application in many industries. Now the Spaser, a new invention developed in part by Tel Aviv University, can be as small as needed to fuel nanotechnologies of the future.

Nanofilters for molecule selection by size and substance

Separating molecules is an important part of many manufacturing and testing processes, including pharmaceutical production and some biomedical tests. One way of carrying out such separation is by using nanofilters - materials with holes of a precisely controlled tiny diameter, to allow molecules up to that size to pass through while blocking any that are larger. But a new system devised by researchers at MIT could add an important new capability: a way to selectively filter out molecules of the same size that have different chemical properties.
