Researchers at Oregon State University and other institutions have developed a new plasmonic nanorod metamaterial using extraordinarily tiny rods of gold that will have important applications in medical, biological and chemical sensors.
Improved magneto-nano sensor chips are up to 1,000 times more sensitive than current methods of cancer detection - can scan any bodily fluid with high accuracy and search for up to 64 different cancer-associated proteins simultaneously.
The European Environmental Bureau (EEB), Europe's largest federation of environmental citizens' organizations, launched a report outlining the critical governance structures needed for the safe development and use of nanotechnologies.
Max Planck Innovation, the technology transfer organization of the Max Planck Society, grants Leica Microsystems, Wetzlar, an exclusive license for implementing the latest generation of optical microscopes with a resolution far below the diffraction limit (nanoscopes).
UC Santa Barbara and the Institute of Microelectronics (IME) of Singapore have entered into a 'green electronics' research collaboration agreement focused on developing ultra-efficient nanoscale transistors and exploring their circuit-level functionality.
Leica Microsystems, Wetzlar, erhaelt von Max-Planck-Innovation, der Technologietransfer-Organisation der Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, die Exklusivlizenz fuer die Umsetzung der neuesten Generation optischer Mikroskope mit Aufloesung weit unterhalb der Beugungsgrenze (Nanoskope).
The completed building will consist of a 28,000-square-foot basement, an 8,000-square-foot sub-basement, and four above-ground levels each measuring about 12,000 square feet. The total building is about 90,000 square feet including hallways, utilities and common spaces.
