The silicon transistors in your computer may be replaced in ten years by transistors based on carbon nanotubes. This is what scientists at the University of Gothenburg are hoping - they have developed a method to control the nanotubes during production.
Researchers have theoretically developed and experimentally demonstrated that the artificial catalytic nucleic acids called DNAzymes and their substrates constitute a platform for the logic operations essential to computational processes.
Scientists have discovered a way of mimicking the stunningly bright and beautiful colours found on the wings of tropical butterflies. The findings could have important applications in the security printing industry, helping to make bank notes and credit cards harder to forge.
In a development that could lead to novel carbon composites and touch-screen displays, researchers from Rice University and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology today unveiled a new method for producing bulk quantities of one-atom-thick sheets of carbon called graphene.
Save the date for the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) Strategic Planning Workshop: Providing Critical Stakeholder Input to the 2010 NNI Strategic Plan; July 13-14, 2010 at the Palomar Hotel in Arlington, VA.
An intimate understanding of complex materials that lie at the heart of pharmaceuticals or even nuclear weapons can occur more quickly and efficiently thanks to an agreement between Los Alamos and Argonne national laboratories.
European scientists have created a pioneering three-dimensional (3D) brain probing system that may provide new leads for understanding schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease and other serious brain conditions.
Mit 4,23 Millionen Euro foerdert die Europaeische Union den Aufbau von zwei Technologie-Zentren an der Uni Wuerzburg. Die neuen Einrichtungen befassen sich mit Nanotechnologien und mit ultrahochaufloesender Analytik.
Jeffrey Long's lab will soon host a round-the-clock, robotically choreographed hunt for carbon-hungry materials. The Berkeley Lab chemist leads a diverse team of scientists whose goal is to quickly discover materials that can efficiently strip carbon dioxide from a power plant's exhaust, before it leaves the smokestack and contributes to climate change.
Scientists from four U.S. universities have created a way to use Rice University's light-activated nanoshells as building blocks for 2-D and 3-D structures that could find use in chemical sensors, nanolasers and bizarre light-absorbing metamaterials.
