In der Kleinen Anfrage der Fraktion Buendnis 90/Die Gruenen "Aktivitaeten und Positionen der Bundesregierung im Bereich der Chemikalienpolitik auf nationaler und europaeischer Ebene" vom 08.09.2011 beziehen sich 18 der 55 Fragen auf das Thema Nanotechnologie und speziell Nanomaterialien.
The NanoKTN in partnership with the Chemistry Innovation KTN and Nanofactory, has announced details of a one-day seminar where experts in modelling can meet with those seeking to commercialize nanotechnology based products to share their mutual experience and needs.
The Technology Strategy Board in partnership with the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is to invest up to GBP 9m in grant funding to support highly innovative, business led collaborative research projects focussed on nanoscale technology-enabled solutions for the healthcare sector.
Scientists in Japan have shown that a hierarchic structure with a comparable size in vivo can be introduced into an artificial lipid bilayer membrane using nanostructures on oxide surfaces as templates.
Scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute are working to optimize a promising new nanomaterial called nanoblades for use in hydrogen storage. During their testing of the new material, they have discovered that it can store and release hydrogen extremely fast and at low temperatures compared to similar materials.
Wissenschaftlern der Johannes Gutenberg-Universitaet Mainz ist es gelungen, in die Struktur von Heusler-Materialien vorzudringen und das Verhalten der Elektronen zu beobachten. Sie verwenden dazu eine besondere Form der Photoelektronenspektroskopie, die es moeglich macht, viel tiefer als bisher in die Materie vorzudringen und die elektronische Beschaffenheit zu untersuchen.
Probably the leading team that is driving forward the work on nanogenerators for converting mechanical energy into electricity is Zhong Lin Wang's group at Georgia Tech has published a a comprehensive and coherent review about the development of nanogeneratos, organizing the book based on the group's published papers. And best of all, it is a free e-book.
A collaborative Oregon State University-University of Oregon Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry, born under a National Science Foundation grant in 2008, is moving into a second phase under a new five-year, $20 million grant.
With the discovery of a RNA nano-scaffold that remains unusually stable in the body, researchers at the University of Cincinnati have overcome another barrier to the development of therapeutic RNA nanotechnology.
An international team of researchers has for the first time demonstrated that random, haphazardly grown silicon nanowires can significantly boost the power-producing capabilities of solar cells by trapping a broad spectrum of light waves and capturing sunlight streaming in from a wide variety of angles.
Researchers from the University of Notre Dame in Indiana have harnessed another one of graphene's remarkable properties to better control a relatively untamed portion of the electromagnetic spectrum: the terahertz band.
