A University of Missouri physicist has uncovered some clues about the basis of Einstein's theories and presented a more general approximation, which may better link quantum physics with classical physics.
Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), the world's leading university-research consortium for semiconductors and related technologies, today teamed with the National Science Foundation (NSF) to announce funding of $2 million in new supplemental grants for nanoelectronics research.
Hiroshi Takashima and coworkers of the Superconducting Devices Group of the Nanoelectronics Research Institute, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) have developed red electroluminescent devices using thin-films of chemically stable perovskite oxides.
A portable "lab on a chip" that can identify target molecules in blood samples has been created by European researchers. It is being used to measure fertility hormones and detect the genes associated with certain types of cancer.
U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman has announced that the UNM Nanoscience and Microsystems (NSMS) Graduate Program has been awarded the highly competitive grant to provide fellowships for Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN).
It's back! The American Chemical Society (ACS) Web community site for nanoscience and nanotechnology researchers and enthusiasts - ACS Nanotation - has launched a second installment of the NanoTube video contest that became an Internet sensation a few months ago.
Scientists developed a ready-to-use, cost-reducing technology that can capture sunlight and store it as energy to power Global Positioning System components, portable communications, and other devices for U.S. soldiers.
Dye-sensitized solar cells are expected to power Air Force unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the future because they are an optimum energy harvesting source that may lead to longer flight times without refueling.
The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) is seeking nominations for the 2010 Class of Fellows. Fellows membership is limited to a select few and is presented in recognition of contributions to the social, technological and educational aspects of the manufacturing profession.
IMEC today announces the launch of a new industrial affiliation program (IIAP) that will focus on the development of GaN technology for both power conversion and solid state lighting applications. An important goal of the program is to lower GaN technology cost by using large-diameter GaN-on-Si and hence by leveraging on the Si scale of economics.
Anthrax, long feared for its potential as a biological weapon, has lost some of its mystery. Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory, in collaboration with scientists at the University of Chicago, have determined the structure of a protein crucial to the virulence of anthrax bacteria.
IMEC has achieved promising results in the race to scale CMOS to 22nm and below. The breakthroughs from its transistor scaling programs include a successful integration of the laser-anneal technique in a high-K/metal-gate first process and a step forward towards fabricating aggressively scaled germanium-pFET transistors.
J.C. Seamus Davis and John Tranquada, physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, along with Aharon Kapitulnik of Stanford University, have been named the recipients of the 2009 Heike Kamerlingh Onnes Prize for outstanding superconductivity experiments.
