A novel ion trap geometry could usher in a new generation of applications because the device holds promise as a stylus for sensing very small forces or as an interface for efficient transfer of individual light particles for quantum communications.
A tiny grid pattern has led materials scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Institute of Solid State Physics in Russia to an unexpected finding - the surprisingly strong and long-range effects of certain electromagnetic nanostructures used in data storage.
A new agreement between Syracuse University and Brookhaven National Laboratory will enable SU faculty and students to use Brookhaven's state-of-the-art research facilities. The agreement also encourages SU and Brookhaven scientists and engineers to explore opportunities for collaborative research in the fields of energy technology development, environmental sciences, biomaterials, forensic science, engineering and computer science, the biological sciences, and policy.
Der im Auftrag des Bundesministeriums für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) von der VDI Technologiezentrum GmbH geplante Branchendialog "NanoEngineering" soll am 8. Dezember 2009 in Düsseldorf zeigen, wie neue Entwicklungen aus der Material- und Nanotechnologieforschung in die Praxis des Maschinen- und Anlagenbaus umgesetzt und damit Kosteneinsparungen und neue Märkte erschlossen werden können.
A new statistical analysis technique that identifies and removes systematic bias, noise and equipment-based artifacts from experimental data could lead to more precise and reliable measurement of nanomaterials and nanostructures likely to have future industrial applications.
Combat-related injuries plague the military in part because of multidrug-resistant bacteria. Imagine being able to spray a compound fracture with microcapsules that deliver a drug to bolster the immune system, stopping infection before it starts.
A Princeton-led research team has revealed surprising information about how electron behavior influences the conduction of electricity in a class of high-temperature superconductors. An increased understanding of this mechanism could one day transform a number of technologies, including the transmission of electrical power.
The Institute of Microelectronics (IME), a research institute of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), today announced the launch of the 10th Electronic Packaging Research Consortium (EPRC-10) to address key integration challenges of 3-dimensional Packaging and Embedded Module technologies.
Researchers in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leicester have developed a new synthesis method, which has led them to the discovery of fluorescent silicon nanoparticles and may ultimately help track the uptake of drugs by the body's cells.
The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded chemist Dr Alexander Kros a Starting Independent Researcher Grant of 1.4 million euro. He will be using the grant to study how molecules penetrate the natural barrier of a cell membrane. If his research is successful, it will in time bring about a revolution in how medicines are administered.
Ein wichtiger Schritt auf dem Weg zur Untersuchung grundlegender Quanteneffekte ist Forschern der Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg und des Erlanger Max-Planck-Instituts für die Physik des Lichts gelungen.
