A groundbreaking new equation developed in part by researchers at the University of Michigan could do for organic semiconductors what the Shockley ideal diode equation did for inorganic semiconductors: help to enable their wider adoption. Without the Shockley equation, the computers of today would not be possible.
Canary Foundation researchers at Stanford University received the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Early Detection Research Network (EDRN) Biomarker Development Laboratory (BDL) Grant. This award came at the same time as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved an eIND for Canary Foundation research in the testing of molecular imaging agents for lung cancer.
In the framework of the ongoing work of the High-Level Expert Group on Key Enabling Technologies (KETs), this Open Day is organised by the Working Group on Nanotechnologies in order to consult a broad stakeholder audience on the needs and challenges of the sector, contributing to the development of appropriate policy measures to promote the industrial deployment of KETs.
Plants play an important role as producers of sugar and carbohydrates. Scientists from the University of Wuerzburg are conducting research in this area - with the long-term goal of influencing sugar levels in agricultural crop plants.
Imec Taiwan today signed the co-funding contract with the Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) for its R+D activity Imec Taiwan Innovation Centre (ITIC). ITIC's goal is to expedite applied research projects with industry and academia that will result in electronic designs, components and technology solutions.
University of Virginia chemical engineers Robert J. Davis and Matthew Neurock have uncovered the key features that control the high reactivity of gold nanoparticles in a process that oxidizes alcohols in water. The research is an important first step in unlocking the potential of using metal catalysts for developing biorenewable chemicals.
The 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics went to the two scientists who first isolated graphene, one-atom-thick crystals of graphite. Now, a researcher with the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering is trying to develop a method to mass-produce this revolutionary material.
