CEA-Leti today announced the launch of the TARGET-PDT project designed to increase the effectiveness of photodynamic therapy (PDT) for treating cancer by developing a novel nano carrier-based approach.
The NanoKTN is pleased to announce that a PhD student and member of the NanoKTN has been awarded the Roscoe Medal, presented by representatives of RSC and AgChemAccess Ltd, at the prestigious SET for Britain event, held at the House of Commons in March 2010.
Do you want to meet like minded business innovators in the nanotechnology field? The NanoKTN, in partnership with The University of Nottingham's Nanotechnology and Nanoscience Centre, is holding its next finance event hosted by BioCity on May 19.
Researchers at AIST succeeded in extracting light from a semiconductor into air with the highest efficiency. For this purpose, ridges were fabricated on a semiconductor surface, and then, the fabricated ridges were coated with a silicon dioxide layer.
MIT researchers have developed a powerful new tool for calculating the effects of Casimir forces, with ramifications for both basic physics and the design of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). One of the researchers' most recent discoveries using the new tool was a way to arrange tiny objects so that the ordinarily attractive Casimir forces become repulsive.
To highlight breakthroughs in this area, the editors of Optics Express, the Optical Society's (OSA) open-access journal, published a special focus issue on 'Unconventional Polarization States of Light'.
As King Abdullah inaugurates a package of development projects worth SR14.039 billion (approx. $3.7 billion) at King Saud University (KSU) today, King Abdullah Institute for Nanotechnology, affiliated with KSU, announced that it has registered two nanotechnology patents with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
A National Institutes of Health grant will help University of Central Florida researchers explore new ways to potentially reverse the damage caused by multiple sclerosis and other neurological disorders.
Dr. Yves Bellouard of the Department of Mechanical Engineering is coordinator of a new European project, Femtoprint, to be started this month. The goal is to design a convenient 3D laser printer that will print microstructures in glass.
