Significant advances in the application of colloidal structures as light emitters and lasers may soon be realized following the discovery of very fast fluorescence emission rates in colloidal nanoplatelets.
A research team at the Institut Laue-Langevin, the flagship centre for neutron science, has demonstrated quantitatively the science behind an anomaly in the surface tension of polyelectrolyte/surfactant mixtures. Their findings show that the dramatic increase in surface tension that affects the production of various pharmaceutical and cosmetic formulations is caused by the comprehensive aggregation of active ingredients.
A quick, inexpensive and highly sensitive test that identifies disease markers or other molecules in low-concentration solutions could be the result of a Cornell-developed nanomechanical biosensor, which could potentially help with early stage disease detection.
Bringing together micro and nanotechnology researchers within the South and Midwest regions, Western Kentucky University and the KY EPSCoR NanoNet are pleased to present the first annual Kentucky Nanotechnology Symposium which will be held March 30-31, 2012 at WKU in Bowling Green Kentucky.
Carnegie Mellon University's Roberto R. Gil and Rongchao Jin have successfully used NMR to analyze the structure of infinitesimal gold nanoparticles, which could advance the development and use of the tiny particles in drug development.
Graphene's star is rising as a material that could become essential to efficient, environmentally sound oil production. Rice University researchers are taking advantage of graphene's outstanding strength, light weight and solubility to enhance fluids used to drill oil wells.
Researchers with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have discovered a universal technique for stripping nanocrystals of tether-like molecules that until now have posed as obstacles for their integration into devices.
ICE Publishing, the publishing division of the Institution of Civil Engineers, today announces the immediate availability of 28 ahead of print articles - including 2012 Themed Issue articles of Bioinspired Materials - from its new flagship journal series: ICE Science.
In this project funded by the Danish EPA the Technical University of Denmark and National Research Centre for the Working Environment has initiated the development of a screening tool called NanoRiskCat (NRC) for the evaluation of exposure and hazard of nanomaterials contained in products for professional and private use.
The new cell shows potential to meet the major requirements for future device-level nonvolatile memory. RRAM is an emerging technology for nonvolatile memory, a candidate to replace NAND Flash technology in the scaling race to sub-10nm memories.
