Newer, faster supercomputers have allowed scientists to create detailed models of blood flow that help doctors understand what happens at the molecular level and, consequently, how heart and blood diseases can be treated.
The supercomputer is an important milestone of Europe's contribution to the Broader Approach (BA), an Agreement signed between Europe and Japan to complement the ITER project through various R+D activities which are developed in the field of nuclear fusion.
How do you simulate the behaviour of protons and amino acids on the computer? How do you depict experiments to study their behaviour as more or less water is introduced? These questions may seem trivial in this age of powerful computers. Yet, it turns out this task will remain almost impossible to solve until new mathematical algorithms are found.
CEA-Leti, a leading global research center committed to creating and commercializing innovation in micro- and nanotechnologies, is hosting its third workshop on innovative memory technologies at MINATEC on Wednesday, June 29, 2011.
A step change in research relating to plasma nanoscience is needed for the world to overcome the challenge of sufficient energy creation and storage, says a leading scientist from CSIRO Materials Science and Engineering and the University of Sydney, Australia.
The National Nanomanufacturing Network is very pleased to announce that the Nanoinformatics 2020 Roadmap, a guidance document written by and intended for the broader nanoinformatics community, is now publicly available. Nanoinformatics encompasses the acquisition of information relevant to the nanoscale science and engineering community and the implementation of effective mechanisms for working with that information.
Through the partnership, Carestream Health will conduct research and prototype development for some of its newest digital technologies at CNSE's Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence.
When one cloud of gas meets another, they normally pass right through each other. But now, MIT physicists have created clouds of ultracold gases that bounce off each other like bowling balls, even though they are a million times thinner than air - the first time that such impenetrable gases have been observed.
Last year's $2 billion shutdown of European airspace following a volcanic eruption in Iceland alerted everyone to the danger that ash clouds can pose to aircraft engines. Now, researchers have discovered that a new class of ceramic coatings could offer jet engines special protection against volcanic ash damage in the future.
