Researchers are developing a new type of rocket propellant made of a frozen mixture of water and nanoscale aluminum powder that is more environmentally friendly than conventional propellants and could be manufactured on the moon, Mars and other water-bearing bodies.
The repair of damaged nerve cells is a major problem in medicine today. A new study by researchers at the Montreal NeurologicaI Institute and Hospital (The Neuro) and McGill University, is a significant advance towards a solution for neuronal repair.
The Russian Corporation for Nanotechnologies and Sberbank signed the agreement aimed at coordinating the efforts for ensuring development of innovation infrastructure in the Russian Federation in the field of nanotechnologies, implementation of national projects for creating promising nanotechnologies and nanoindustry.
Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore's leading science and technology university has formed a tripartite research alliance with the National Center of Scientific Research (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique or CNRS), the largest governmental research organisation in France, and Thales the French electronics giant and a global technology leader in aerospace, space, defence, security and transportation industries.
Leti, the leading research and development institute focused on micro- and nano-technologies, announced today that it has broken new ground in the integration of nanotechnology with traditional complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) chip technology.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has unveiled a method for calibrating entire waveforms - graphical shapes showing how electrical signals vary over time - rather than just parts of waveforms as is current practice.
Scientists have spent the better part of the last eight decades trying to find, in essence, a magnet with only one pole. A team working at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has found one.
IMEC, a leading European research center in nanotechnology, the Institüt für Mikrotechnik Mainz (IMM), one of the leading European research centers in microfluidics, and their partners within the European Sixth Framework Project MASCOT achieve a major milestone in the development of a lab-on-chip for the detection and therapy evaluation of breast cancer.
Researchers at UC Merced received a three-year $1.3 million grant from the National Science Foundation to develop luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs) that use materials other than silicon as semiconductors.
Theresa M. Reineke, associate professor of chemistry in the College of Science, and colleagues in her lab at Virginia Tech and at the University of Cincinnati have developed a new molecule that can travel into cells, deliver genetic cargo, and packs a beacon so scientists can follow its movements in living systems.
High-energy heavy ion collisions, which are studied at RHIC in Brookhaven and soon at the LHC in Geneva, can be a source of light flashes of a few yoctoseconds duration - the time that light needs to traverse an atomic nucleus.
