A new grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) will support 30 graduate students working in the Cornell Center for Materials Research (CCMR) on the development of materials to advance sustainable living.
For decades, researchers have been trying to combine semiconductor materials that have different and potentially complementary characteristics into a single microchip. Now, an MIT team has finally succeeded in this effort, an advance that could point to a way of overcoming fundamental barriers of size and speed facing today's silicon chips.
The Australian research community will soon have access to one of the most powerful nanotechnology instruments in the world, able to write and etch data on particles ten thousand times smaller than the width of a human hair.
Today NorTech, the champion for high tech industry growth in Northeast Ohio, announced it will transition operations of its Nano-Network initiative to PolymerOhio, a statewide organization that accelerates commercialization activities across a wide range of applications in the polymer and advanced materials industries.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST has successfully initiated a COST Action on the subject of 'highly ionised pulse plasma processes - HIPP processes' and now takes the lead of the action.
Scientists at Oregon State University have developed a new 'adjuvant' that could allow the creation of important new vaccines, possibly become a universal vaccine carrier and help medical experts tackle many diseases more effectively.
Out to prove that there is more to Finnish technology than Nokia handphones, Finland is seeking collaborations with India in biotechnology and nanotechnology and will also set up a Finnish Innovation Centre in New Delhi.
In a speech Tuesday before the 8th annual NanoBusiness Conference in Chicago, Congressman Dan Lipinski called for enhanced support for cutting-edge research into nanotechnology, which has the potential to be a revolutionary force for job creation and economic growth.
