Die Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft foerdert ein Projekt der Fachhochschule Giessen-Friedberg mit 210.000 Euro. Eine von Prof. Dr. Alexander Kloes geleitete Gruppe arbeitet an der 'strukturnahen Modellierung von Nanoscale Multiple-Gate-FETs zur Schaltungssimulation'.
With the aim of confirming that textiles treated with silver nano-particles do not cause any harm, researchers at the Hohenstein Institute in Germany, together with 16 partners from research institutions, industry and the regulatory authorities, are working on a major project to investigate the behaviour, whereabouts and effect of the particles in the environment.
The simulation of laser-based production processes has to cover a wide span of time and length scales, especially in new techniques from micro- and nanophotonics. This requires special algorithms which have already been used successfully at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, as well as a massive amount of computer power. Fraunhofer ILT has built a high-performance computer cluster at the Center for Nanophotonics.
Um herauszufinden, wie Fluessigkeiten sich im Kontakt mit nanostrukturierten Oberflaechen verhalten, haben die Wissenschaftler des Exzellenzclusters 'Center of Smart Interfaces' (CSI) der TU Darmstadt ein Nanoanalytiklabor gegruendet.
The U.S. Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) today announced a total of more than $22 million in funding for nine research projects targeting innovative manufacturing technologies in fields ranging from biopharmaceuticals and electronics to renewable energy sources and energy storage.
Together with Italian researchers, ETH Zurich scientists have developed a novel organometallic fuel cell. In addition to generating electrical energy, it also produces fine chemicals from renewable raw materials - with no waste.
Fortified with iron: It's not just for breakfast cereal anymore. University of Illinois researchers have demonstrated a simpler method of adding iron to tiny carbon spheres to create catalytic materials that have the potential to remove contaminants from gas or liquid.
For the first time in history, a change will be made to the atomic weights of some elements listed on the Periodic table of the chemical elements posted on walls of chemistry classrooms and on the inside covers of chemistry textbooks worldwide. The new table, outlined in a report released this month, will express atomic weights of 10 elements - hydrogen, lithium, boron, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, silicon, sulfur, chlorine and thallium - in a new manner that will reflect more accurately how these elements are found in nature.
A new study from researchers at North Carolina State University sheds light on how a technique that is commonly used for making single-metal nanoparticles can be extended to create nanoparticles consisting of two metals - and that have tunable properties.
In a proof of principal study in mice, scientists at Johns Hopkins and the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) have shown that a set of genetic instructions encased in a nanoparticle can be used as an 'ignition switch' to rev up gene activity that aids cancer detection and treatment.
