To make large sheets of carbon available for light collection, Indiana University Bloomington chemists have devised an unusual solution -- attach what amounts to a 3-D bramble patch to each side of the carbon sheet.
Trinity College Dublin (TCD) scientists based at the Institute of Molecular Medicine (IMM), TCD School of Medicine, in collaboration with CRANN, will lead a pan-European team that has attracted funding worth approximately 12m euros, to develop a cutting edge nanotechnology process which will enable the early and rapid diagnosis of most common cancer types.
Could inexpensive wireless sensors based on nanotechnology be used to alert engineers to problematic cracks and damage to buildings, bridges, and other structures before they become critical? A feasibility study would suggest so.
Leti announced today that it has demonstrated a fully CMOS-compatible laser source coupled to a silicon waveguide, a major milestone toward the WADIMOS project's goal of fabricating silicon photonics circuits in CMOS foundries.
Researchers at AIST have developed continuous production equipment for metal nanoparticles and have succeeded in the practical use of a process where metal nanoparticles are synthesized continuously with uniform quality.
Professor Chang-Hwan Choi of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology was named as a recipient of the 2010 Young Investigator Program award by the Office of Naval Research.
Experiments can sometimes lead to the discovery of completely unanticipated phenomena. Such is the case with the remarkable behavior exhibited by peptide nanostructures (in the form of supramolecular filaments) observed during experiments carried out at the Advanced Photon Source.
Scientists at Argonne National Laboratory have identified a new class of silver-based catalysts for the production of the industrially useful chemical propylene oxide that is both environmentally friendly and less expensive.
The single-atom thick material graphene maintains its high thermal conductivity when supported by a substrate, a critical step to advancing the material from a laboratory phenomenon to a useful component in a range of nano-electronic devices.
