A new set of experiments by Duke University bioengineers has uncovered the existence of 'bistability', in which an individual cell has the potential to live in either of two states, depending on which state it was in when stimulated.
A European-sponsored programme that gives universities inexpensive access to state-of-the-art microchip design tools and fabrication techniques, and helps even small businesses fabricate novel microchips, is helping Europe remain competitive worldwide.
Eine Fachtagung des Cluster Nanotechnologie mit begleitender Ausstellung am 5. und 6. Oktober 2009 an der Universitaet Augsburg / Auszeichnung der Sieger des diesjaehrigen bayerischen Schulwettbewerbs zur Nanotechnologie bei der feierlichen Eroeffnungsveranstaltung.
Prof. Igor Sokolov, director of the Nanoengineering and Biotechnology Laboratories Center (NABLAB) at Clarkson University, was named a winner in the first phase of the Veeco Labs Research Grant Program, 'HarmoniX Innovation'.
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A+M University sponsored the university's inaugural Nano/Micro Poster Symposium to promote multidisciplinary interaction and scientific communication among students and faculty in the field of nano/micro technology.
The Exhibition will be devoted to application aspects of the nanotechnology use and will allow to show already existing samples of nanomaterials, the latest developments in the field of nanotechnology, and equipment for nanoindustry.
An international team of physicists has for the first time observed magnetic behaviour in an atomic gas, addressing a decades-old debate as to whether it is possible for a gas or liquid to become ferromagnetic and exhibit magnetic properties.
Building the super-fast computers of the future has just become much easier thanks to an advance by Australian researchers that lets them grab hold of tiny electronics components and probe their inner structure using only a beam of light.
Researchers have developed a quantum physical model that accurately describes the function of these artificial photosynthetic systems, and provides an understanding of their reaction kinetics that could lead to significant improvements in their conversion efficiencies.
The Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and the California Nano-Industry Network is hosting the fifth Nanotechnology Symposium: 'DTSC/California Nano-Industry Network Symposium' on November 16, 2009 in Sacramento, California.
Researchers have overcome a major obstacle in efforts to use tiny structures called carbon nanotubes to create a new class of electronics that would be faster and smaller than conventional silicon-based transistors.
Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the Scripps Research Institute have uncovered the role played by the least-understood part of a first-responder molecule that rushes in to bind and repair breaks in DNA strands, a process that helps people avoid cancer.
