Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University have developed a novel approach for delivering small bits of genetic material into the body to improve the treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases.
The discovery reveals that energy-carrying particles generated by packets of light can travel on the order of a thousand times farther in organic (carbon-based) semiconductors than scientists previously observed.
The California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA has opened its new Integrated Systems Nanofabrication Cleanroom (ISNC), more than doubling the amount of cleanroom space available on the Westwood campus and extending research capabilities to researchers in biology and medicine.
An international team of researchers has discovered a new class of highly electronegative chemical species called hyperhalogens, which use superhalogens as building blocks around a metal atom. The new chemical species may have application in many industries.
The Oct. 4 issue of the high-impact journal, Applied Physics Letters, contains a new electrofluidics design from the University of Cincinnati and start-up company Gamma Dynamics that promises to dramatically reshape the image capabilities of electronic devices.
On October 4th/5th, 2010, more than 200 European and US specialists were discussing the risks and opportunities offered by nanotechnology at a symposium in Lucerne organised by the Chemistry Section of the International Social Security Association (ISSA).
At a recent launch of the Nanotechnology Association of Thailand in Bangkok on October 7, Prof. Sirirurg Songsivilai, President of Nanotechnology Association of Thailand said the aim of the association is to work closely with industries, researchers, and decision makers to effectively launch NanoQ in 2011.
Dr. Long Que, assistant professor of electrical engineering at Louisiana Tech University, has reported success in designing and fabricating a device that allows microscale electronic devices to harvest their own wasted energy.
Following a very successful workshop on the simulation and experimental study of biomolecular diffusional processes in Heidelberg in 2007, a second workshop will take place on October 11-13, 2010, at the Studio, Villa Bosch.
Researchers believe that the puzzle of catalytic gold is now partially solved. Gold can catalyse an oxidation reaction by first oxidising itself. New research evidence on gold-oxide phase at room temperature and atmospheric pressure help us to finally understand the oxidation mechanisms of catalytic gold nanoclusters in these conditions.
