Due to their reliability, small size, high output power and high efficiency, semiconductor lasers are increasingly gaining market share in many laser applications. Laser Optics Berlin, held from March, 22th to 24th, is one of the key industrial trade shows in this growing field, and is an important networking opportunity.
In 1908, the German physicist Gustav Mie came up with an elegant set of equations to describe the interaction of electromagnetic waves with a spherical metal particle. The theory has been a touchstone ever since for researchers seeking to quantify how nanoscale plasmonic particles scatter radiation.
A team of scientists at Washington University in St. Louis is currently working on a magic bullet for cancer, a disease whose treatments are notoriously indiscriminate and nonspecific. But their bullets are gold rather than silver. Literally.
The MIT Clean Energy Prize (MIT CEP) organizing team today announced 24 semi-finalist teams that will compete for a $200,000 grand prize provided by NSTAR and the United States Department of Energy to be awarded on May 11, 2010 for the most innovative clean energy solution.
The forum 'Innovations for Industry' is, with more than 60 international speeches during five days, the biggest industry forum for applied micro- and nanotechnology. Numerous companies from all over the world will present their latest technologies and applications at the MicroNanoTec/HANNOVER MESSE from April 19 - 23.
The workshop not only focused on the two major research themes, nano-photonics and bio-photonics, but also discussed the future biomedical collaborations between University of Washington (UW) and National Cheng Kung University (NCKU).
