Victims of third-degree burns and other traumatic injuries endure pain, disfigurement, invasive surgeries and a long time waiting for skin to grow back. Improved tissue grafts designed by Cornell scientists that promote vascular growth could hasten healing, encourage healthy skin to invade the wounded area and reduce the need for surgeries.
Researchers at New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences have outlined a method for storing programs inside DNA that simplifies nanocomputing - computation at the molecular level.
Efficiency is a problem with today's solar panels; they only collect about 20 percent of available light. Now, a University of Missouri engineer has developed a flexible solar sheet that captures more than 90 percent of available light, and he plans to make prototypes available to consumers within the next five years.
APIC Corporation, a Los Angeles, CA-based pioneer of photonics technology integrated with electronics, and the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany today announced that they have formed a $10 million partnership for joint development and commercialization of innovative "green" technology to enable faster computer chips that use significantly less power.
Physiker haben am Center for Functional Nanostructures (CFN) am Karlsruher Institut fuer Technologie (KIT) in der Arbeitsgruppe von Professor Martin Wegener fast ein Jahr daran gearbeitet, die Struktur der Karlsruher Tarnkappe so zu verfeinern, dass sie auch in einem fuer den Menschen sichtbaren Bereich des Lichts wirkt.
The Nanoscale Effects in Tribology (NET 2011) Meeting will address the advances occurring in nanoscale tribology, providing attendees the opportunity to network, and discuss trends and future developments.
Today, Flanders' ambitious brain research that may lead to better diagnosis and treatment of brain disease, new prosthesis technologies for patients with a disability, a new generation of more intelligent robots, etc. switches into higher gear.
Researchers at Hewlett Packard and the University of California, Santa Barbara, have analysed in unprecedented detail the physical and chemical properties of an electronic device that computer engineers hope will transform computing.
