Scientists in China are reporting an advance that may improve the natural wonders of wool - already regarded as the 'wonder fabric' for its lightness, softness, warmth even when wet, and other qualities.
Scientists at Cornell are devising methods to detect the magnetic fields of individual electrons and atomic nuclei, which they hope to use to make 3-D images - a nanoscale version of magnetic resonance imaging.
Researchers in Japan have developed a new microscopic technology which can achieve a single-cell gene induction by heat-shock response evoked with cell heating using infrared laser irradiation under a microscope in vivo.
Die baden-wuerttembergischen Firma Nanocraft Coating (Engen) will mit Unterstuetzung der DBU voellig neuartige Beschichtungsverfahren entwickeln, die es ermoeglichen, Edelmetalle wesentlich duenner als bisher aufzutragen. Die DBU foerdert das Projekt mit rund 122.000 Euro.
The Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering faculty members who direct the Institute for NanoBioTechnology and Engineering in Oncology Center both have been awarded the distinction of AAAS Fellow. Election as a Fellow is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers.
Sensors Expo is dedicated to exploring the most up-to-date innovations in sensor technology including physical sensors, sensor networks, biosensors, Energy Harvesting, MEMS/Nanotechnology, instrumentation and controls, intelligent systems, machine-to-machine communication, wireless sensing and IT technology.
Berkeley Lab's National Center for Electron Microscopy (NCEM) provided the technology and a Visiting Scientist Fellowship that helped a Missouri State University researcher make a key discovery which should boost efforts to use carbon nanotubes as catalytic supports in direct ethanol fuel cells.
Researchers at Northeastern's Electronic Materials Research Institute (eMRI) are collaborating with two Harvard Medical School researchers to develop a nanotechnology-based 'smart implant' to treat cancer.
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany hosted more than 3,000 elementary, middle and high school students and over 30,000 members of the community through its educational and public outreach programs and initiatives this year, representing a 20 percent increase over 2008.
Membership of the Engineering Council will allow IoN to work closely with other Institutes licensed under EC, such as the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET), with which IoN already has a memorandum of understanding to run a joint micro and nanotechnology network.
The Technische Universitaet Darmstadt, tesa scribos GmbH, the Universitaet Stuttgart and BASF SE want to research printed electronics in the project 'Complementary Circuit Technology for printed Displays' (German name Kosadis).
Researchers at Argonne National Laboratory are leveraging their broad and deep understanding of safe, high-energy and long-life Li-ion battery development to leap the high hurdles required for the development of commercially viable Li-air batteries.
