Expanding on work published two years ago, MIT's Daniel Nocera and his associates have found yet another formulation, based on inexpensive and widely available materials, that can efficiently catalyze the splitting of water molecules using electricity.
C-Crete, started by MIT doctoral student in Civil and Environmental Engineering Rouzbeh Shasavari and MIT Sloan School of Management MBA candidate Natanel Barookhian, is based on discoveries made last year at MIT about the molecular structure of cement.
A group of researchers of the University of Cadiz has designed a new mapping system for the study of photovoltaic surfaces. The system can detect, at the micrometric level, all the defects existing in a solar panel.
How do spiders form long, highly stable and elastic fibers from the spider silk proteins stored in the silk gland within split seconds? Scientists from the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) and the University of Bayreuth have now succeeded in unraveling the secret.
This conference is unique in presenting in the same forum overviews of the nanotechnology policies and programs in Europe, Japan, US and other major regions and in addressing through invited technical talks from senior researchers major fields in nanotechnologies and their use in microelectronics.
More than 300 elementary, middle- and high-school students received a firsthand look at the exciting science of nanotechnology when they attended NanoCareer Day at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering's Albany NanoTech Complex on May 13.
Two University of Pennsylvania mathematicians have found solutions to a 140-year-old, 7-dimensional equation that were not known to exist for more than a century despite its widespread use in modeling the behavior of gases.
Using nanotechnology and a patented signal enhancing technique developed at the University of Georgia, UGA researchers have discovered a rapid, sensitive and cost-effective method to detect and identify a number of rotavirus strains and genotypes in less than one minute with greater than 96 percent accuracy.
