It is possible that broken bones will in the near future be fixed using metallic glass. Materials researchers at ETH Zurich have developed an alloy that could herald a new generation of biodegradable bone implants.
Auf dem 2. Internationalen Nanotechnologie Forum (RusNanoTech 09) in Moskau, organisiert das BMBF vom 6. bis 8. Oktober einen deutschen Gemeinschaftsstand, auf dem auch die Universitaet Kassel vertreten sein wird.
University of Toronto researchers have used nanomaterials to develop a microchip sensitive enough to quickly determine the type and severity of a patient's cancer so that the disease can be detected earlier for more effective treatment.
Physicists at UC San Diego have successfully created speedy integrated circuits with particles called 'excitons' that operate at commercially cold temperatures, bringing the possibility of a new type of extremely fast computer based on excitons closer to reality.
The NanoTeach project announces a NSF-funded opportunity for high school science teachers to participate in professional development to support the integration of nanoscience and technology into their existing curricula.
The National Science Foundation has awarded $431,200 to the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Department of Physics to facilitate the purchase of a new highly-specialized imaging system - the first of its kind in Alabama - that will be a centerpiece of a new interdisciplinary research laboratory on campus.
