The Pittsburgh Conference announced its annual Call for Topics for Conferee Networking Sessions for Pittcon 2012, which will be held March 11-15, 2012, in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center.
Charite - Universitaetsmedizin Berlin has established a new treatment at the Clinic for Radiooncology, Campus Virchow, which offers selected patients a nanomedicine approach for the treatment of recurrent brain tumors.
Scientists are increasing the intensity of light by making nanometer scale patterns on surfaces. The nanoimprinting method will change devices' optical properties, without making them demand more energy. Except for brighter mobile phone and computer screens, we may soon have the possibility to benefit from this nanotechnology solution while driving.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, announced today it will continue groundbreaking work developing electronics that simulate the cognitive capabilities of biological intelligence in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics, or SyNAPSE program.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have created a tunable superconducting circuit on a chip that can place a single microwave photon (particle of light) in two frequencies, or colors, at the same time.
Using a combination of sophisticated computer modeling and advanced materials analysis techniques at synchrotron laboratories, a research team has demonstrated how some relatively simple processing flaws can seriously degrade the otherwise near-magical electronic properties of graphene.
The young company HeiQ helps with oil disasters. Fleece mats treated with a special impregnating technique can soak up huge amounts of oil and thus protect entire stretches of coast from contamination.
It's super strong, it's green and it's providing new opportunities for business in Alberta. It's called nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC) and Alberta is about to become a leader in its production and study. A new Edmonton-based pilot facility will be the first in Canada to produce the quality of NCC that researchers need to fully explore all its potential applications.
