The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering hosted more than 200 Girl Scouts from across upstate New York on November 21, as the Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York participated in NanoExplorations, a program designed to provide a close-up look at the exciting world of nanotechnology.
The Freiburg Materials Research Center (FMF) will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its founding in 2010. The center will commemorate the occasion by co-organizing three symposia in February, March, and June.
Scientists at the Carnegie Institution have found for the first time that high pressure can be used to make a unique hydrogen-storage material. The discovery paves the way for an entirely new way to approach the hydrogen-storage problem.
Ever wonder what something looks like up close and personal? ASPEX wants your samples! ASPEX, makers of the Personal Scanning Electron Microscope (PSEM), kicked off its 'Send Us Your Sample' campaign, encouraging people to send in samples to be scanned by one of their PSEMs.
Energieeffiziente und umweltfreundliche Technologien ruecken immer mehr in den Mittelpunkt. Welchen Beitrag die Mikro- und Nanotechnologie dabei leisten kann, zeigt eine Veranstaltung am 1. Dezember in Dortmund auf.
To develop tools for tracking histone acetylation in live cells, Minoru Yoshida of the RIKEN Advanced Science Institute in Wako paired his knowledge of histone acetylation with colleague Kazuki Sasaki's expertise in fluorescent biosensor design.
Stanislaus S. Wong, a scientist with a joint appointment at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory and Stony Brook University, has won the Buck-Whitney Award from the American Chemical Society (ACS) Eastern New York Section.
Scientists at the University of Michigan have determined the atomic-level, three-dimensional structure of a SEVI precursor known as PAP248-286 and discovered how it damages cell membranes to make them more vulnerable to infection with HIV.
Vibrations in nanostructures offer applications in molecular-scale biological sensing and ultrasensitive mass detection. To approach single-atom sensing, it is necessary to reduce the dimensions of the structures to the nanometer scale while preserving long-lived vibrations.
Together with colleagues from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz, scientists from Empa's [email protected] laboratory have for the first time succeeded in synthesizing a graphene-like polymer with well defined pores
