Memory storage miniaturization is progressing steadily on to smaller and smaller devices. As structures go, one cannot miniaturize further than to the size of individual molecules. Precisely this has been achieved by a group of scientists.
Scientists in South Dakota are reporting development of the first broad-spectrum antimicrobial paint, a material that can simultaneously kill not just disease-causing bacteria but mold, fungi, and viruses.
Researchers from California and Massachusetts have come up with a new type of non-toxic nanoparticle that is efficiently broken down and excreted by the kidneys once it has delivered its drug cargo to the target organ.
SEMATECH, a global consortium of chip-makers, and global metallization technology provider, today announced that Atotech has become a member of SEMATECH?s 3D Interconnect Program located at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany.
Der Arbeitskreis der BioRegionen in Deutschland lobt zum dritten Mal den "'nnovationspreis der BioRegionen in Deutschland' aus. Ausgezeichnet mit insgesamt 6.000 Euro werden anwendungsorientierte Ideen aus der Life Science-Forschung.
Nanoscience in Foods: Opportunities and Challenges is an exciting new conference designed to help keep you up-to-date with the latest advances in the application of micro- and nanotechnology in food and drink applications.
In the future, explained Peter Ghazal, Chair of Edinburgh University?s Department of Molecular Genetics and Biomedicine, biological sensors, the product of the integration of biology and electronics will be used to detect infections and prescribe personalized treatments.
Indiana University and Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center recognized the success of an ongoing partnership to enhance national security and advance research opportunities in life sciences, physics and other fields during a ceremony at IU's Cyclotron Facility.
A new imaging technology could give scientists the ability to simultaneously measure as many as 100 or more distinct features in or on a single cell. In a disease such as cancer, that capability would provide a much better picture of what?s going on in individual tumor cells.
An international team of scientists has developed a way to train such molecules to line up neatly on the surface of water in thin, tissue-like layers called nanofilms. This technique should allow biochemists to better see and study the molecules and may lead to a new generation of molecular electronics and ultra-thin materials only one molecule thick.
A landmark report by J. Clarence Davies, Oversight of Next Generation Nanotechnology, describes how existing health and safety agencies are unable to cope with the risk assessment, standard setting and oversight challenges of 21st century technology.
New research shows that human teeth lost some enamel hardness after the application of several different products used in the home to whiten teeth. The study suggests that future generations of such products might be reformulated in an effort to reduce these side effects.
EMERGNANO - the first global review of active research into the environment, health and safety risks of nanotechnology has been published today by Defra, the UK Government Department for Food and Rural Affairs.
