Physicists at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) have found that when graphene is stretched in a specific way it sprouts nanobubbles in which electrons behave in a bizarre way, as if they are moving in a strong magnetic field.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, known for having one of the top research programs in the country for batteries and fuel cells for vehicle applications, has decided to enter another area in the battery world. It has been granted $1.6 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds to develop a novel storage device for the electric grid.
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have developed a new fluorescent biosensor that could aid in the development of an important class of drugs that target a crucial class of proteins called G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs).
Nabil Mistkawi, a new Portland State University (PSU) chemistry graduate and full-time Intel employee, has invented a one-of-a-kind chemical formulation that enables sub-50 nanometer (nm) process technology for advanced microprocessors manufacturing.
The Optical Society (OSA) is pleased to recognize the groundbreaking research presented yesterday at its topical meeting, Integrated Photonics Research, Silicon and Nano Photonics (IPR), by Intel Corporation. IPR is currently being held at the Monterey Plaza Hotel in Monterey, Calif., USA through today.
SabryCorp, Ltd. announced the upcoming 4th NanoTech Insights (NTI) Conference, scheduled for Feb 27-March 2, 2011 in Cairo, Egypt. It will host different diciplines experts to discuss the revolutionary solutions nanotechnology offers to different industrial sectors.
Researchers studying a gas of trapped ultracold atoms have identified a set of conditions, never before observed but in excellent agreement with new theoretical predictions, that determine the onset of a critical 'phase transition' in atomic arrays used to model the behavior of condensed-matter systems.
Department of IT, BT and S + T, Government of Karnataka in association with Vision Group on Nanotechnology, chaired by Prof. C.N.R. Rao, Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR) and MM Activ Scitech Communications is organizing the 3rd edition of Bangalore Nano.
Empa researchers have succeeded in growing sea-urchin shaped nanostructures from minute balls of polystyrene beads using a simple electrochemical process. The spines of the sea urchin consist of zinc oxide nanowires. The structured surface should help increasing the efficiency of photovoltaic devices.
A greater understanding of the quantum processes that lead to chemical reactions may lead to new strategies in the design and control of molecules - ultimately leading to scientific breakthroughs in health care and diagnostic medicine, quantum computing, nanotechnology, environmental science and energy.
U.S., German and Austrian physicists studying the perplexing class of materials that includes high-temperature superconductors are reporting this week the unexpected discovery of a simple 'scaling' behavior in the electronic excitations measured in a related material.
