A magnetic charge can behave and interact just like an electric charge in some materials, according to new research led by the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) which could lead to a reassessment of current magnetism theories, as well as significant technological advances.
Renowned materials scientist Robert Hull, the Henry Burlage Jr. Professor of Engineering and head of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, was recently named a fellow of the Materials Research Society (MRS).
European researchers have created a world-leading camera in CMOS that can record photons at a million times a second. Best of all, it will be really cheap to manufacture, offering applications in consumer products, entertainment and in-car safety systems.
The University of Texas at El Paso is pleased to announce that Jorge Gardea-Torresdey, Ph. D, chair for the Department of Chemistry, has been honored with the 2009 Distinguished Scientist Award by SACNAS, the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science.
European researchers who created an ultra-fast, extremely high-resolution video camera have enabled dozens of medical applications, including one scenario that can record 'thought' processes travelling along neurons.
The SOI Industry Consortium today announced an initiative to deliver a silicon on insulator (SOI) educational event in conjunction with ARM TechCon3 to help the electronics industry reap the benefits of SOI.
Researchers at Oregon State University and other institutions have developed a new plasmonic nanorod metamaterial using extraordinarily tiny rods of gold that will have important applications in medical, biological and chemical sensors.
Improved magneto-nano sensor chips are up to 1,000 times more sensitive than current methods of cancer detection - can scan any bodily fluid with high accuracy and search for up to 64 different cancer-associated proteins simultaneously.
