Stephanie Meyer, a physicist specializing in optics, is bringing new capabilities to the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus by building an advanced, super resolution microscope able to see some of the innermost workings of the cell.
Super strong nanometals are beginning to play an important role in making cars even lighter, enabling them to stand collisions without fatal consequences for the passengers. A PhD student at Riso DTU has discovered a new phenomenon that will make nanometals more useful in practice.
Neben vielen anderen Anwendungsmoeglichkeiten koennen Nanoroehren zur Reinigung von kontaminiertem Wasser eingesetzt werden. Viele wasserverunreinigende Stoffe haben eine hohe Affinitaet fuer Kohlenstoffnanoroehren. Deshalb koennen Schadstoffe aus kontaminiertem Wasser entfernt werden, indem sie durch dieses Material gefiltert werden.
A University at Buffalo-led research team has developed a mathematical framework that could one day form the basis of technologies that turn road vibrations, airport runway noise and other "junk" energy into useful power. The concept all begins with a granular system comprising a chain of equal-sized particles -- spheres, for instance -- that touch one another.
Using high-magnetic fields, Susumu Takahashi, assistant professor at the University of Southern California, and his colleagues managed to suppress decoherence, one of the key stumbling blocks in quantum computing.
Scientists are reporting a key advance toward the long-awaited era of "single-molecule electronics," when common electronic circuits in computers, smart phones, audio players, and other devices may shrink to the size of a grain of sand.
Conventional diagnostic tools often cannot detect many cancers, Alzheimer's and other life-threatening diseases early enough to provide effective treatment. But nanotechnology, which is revolutionizing electronics and other fields, promises to similarly transform medicine, particularly when it comes to identifying illnesses more quickly.
A violation of one of the oldest empirical laws of physics has been observed by scientists at the University of Bristol. Their experiments on purple bronze, a metal with unique one-dimensional electronic properties, indicate that it breaks the Wiedemann-Franz Law.
New nanotechnology-based treatments, including nerve tissue engineering that draws on the limb-regrowing ability of the axolotl, and techniques for targeted attacks on ovarian and lung cancer, were discussed at a major nanomedicine conference in Sydney last week.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a measurement technique that reliably determines three fundamental mechanical properties of near-nanoscale films.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have found that dense arrays of extra-long carbon nanotubes absorb nearly all light of long wavelengths, and thus are promising coatings for prototype detectors intended to measure terahertz laser power.
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign today announced it has entered into a licensing agreement with Xerion Advanced Battery Corp. under which Xerion has the exclusive right to bring the University's StructurePore battery-charging technology to the market.
