Materialwissenschaftler der Fachhochschule Muenster und ein Entwicklerteam der Evonik Degussa GmbH in Marl wollen mit neuartigen Nanopartikeln das Herstellungsverfahren von elektronischen Bauelementen revolutionieren.
A University of York scientist has been awarded a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship for her research on smart polymer materials that could eventually be used as sensors to detect biological materials and pollutants.
The research improves the method of accurately forecasting the location and nature of potential failures in electronic devices due to cracks in the integrated materials, promising to help increase the durability and reliability of today?s electronic devices and potentially even aircraft and bridges.
The biotechnology program at the Harvard Extension School continues to find itself at the leading edge of science education, this year offering several new courses and a new master's concentration in the hot topic area of bioengineering and nanotechnologies.
In partnership with CEMMNT, MM Live has announced the introduction of the Metrology in Micro Manufacturing Workshop, which will take place during the afternoon session of Day 2, October 21, of the Micro Manufacturing Conference.
Organised crime, terrorism, civil conflict, and natural disasters are sadly commonplace in global society and have developed increasingly complex dimensions. To counter such threats, civil security and emergency response teams are looking towards new technologies that offer more sensitive, rapid, and accurate detection methods; that provide the means to neutralise or effectively deal with the outcomes of such incidents; and that provide greater protection to personnel.
If you are curious about the potential of quantum computing, you will want to keep your eye on 'Harnessing Quantum Physics'. This is one of many panel discussions coming your way as part of the Quantum to Cosmos Festival.
Kamen will join dozens of the world's leading innovators, nanotechnology executives and educators at the conference offering keynote speeches or participating on panels to highlight the most pressing issues facing those commercializing nanotech innovations.
The U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory has received an additional $29.1 million in DOE Office of Science (SC) funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for a range of improvements and upgrades to major scientific facilities and other projects.
