The Silver Nanotechnology Working Group (SNWG), an industry effort intended to foster the collection of data on silver and nanotechnology in order to advance the science and public understanding of the beneficial uses of silver nanoparticles in a wide-range of consumer and industrial products, made a detailed presentation to the recent EPA Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) meeting to discuss the topic 'Evaluation of Hazard and Exposure Associated with Nanosilver and Other Nanometal Oxide Pesticide Products'.
Encouraged by the success of the 1st and 2nd IEEE International NanoElectronics Conference (INEC) held in Singapore in 2006 and Shanghai in 2008, the 3rd INEC will be held in City University of Hong Kong from January 3 to 8, 2010.
In einem laufenden und zwei beantragten Projekten will das Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut fuer Hoechstfrequenztechnik, gemeinsam mit Partnern aus Wissenschaft und Industrie nun neuartige Galliumnitrid-Transistoren fuer die Leistungselektronik entwickeln.
Physiker der Universitaet Bonn haben eine neue Methode ersonnen, Atomen ihren Willen aufzuzwingen: Ihnen ist es gelungen, die Eigenschwingung der kleinen Teilchen (ihre so genannte Wellenfunktion) praezise zu steuern.
Senior technologists, executives, and faculty from across the semiconductor R+D community presented technical data revealing significant advances in emerging memory technologies, energy efficient devices and high mobility channel transistors at a SEMATECH-led workshop on 'Emerging Technologies in Solid State Devices' held December 5-6, 2009.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has updated and enhanced several web resources containing NIOSH's research results and recommendations on the work-related health and safety implications of nanotechnology.
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany will host a first-ever conference this week that is designed to enable strategic partnerships with several leading Japanese organizations for advanced research, development and commercialization of leading-edge nanoscale technologies.
At the end of the two-year study, a team at Rice University hopes to have a database that charts the expected response of particles of a given size, type and chemistry. Ultimately, the hope is to provide researchers with a tool that will help predict how a particular particle is likely to behave.
