Researchers at the University of Illinois have developed a technique for fabricating three-dimensional, single-crystalline silicon structures from thin films by coupling photolithography and a self-folding process driven by capillary interactions.
By producing some of the highest resolution images of peptides attaching to mineral surfaces, scientists have a deeper understanding how biomolecules manipulate the growth crystals. This research may lead to a new treatment for kidney stones using biomolecules.
The future Andalusian Centre for Nanomedicine and Biotechnology, BIONAND, in Malaga/Spain is seeking Heads for its main research areas: Nanodiagnostics, Therapeutic Nanosystems and Nanobiotechnology as well as for its Nano-Imaging Research Facility.
Two new studies reveal in unprecedented detail how the ribosome interacts with other molecules to assemble new proteins and guide them toward their destination in biological cells. The studies used molecular dynamics flexible fitting (MDFF) to examine the interaction of the ribosome with two prominent molecular partners.
The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education has announced the national and state Professor of the Year Awards. Physicist Greg Salamo, the Joe N. Basore Professor in Nanotechnology and Innovation in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, was named Arkansas Professor of the Year.
The goal of CONTACT is to establish a tailored supply chain of new CNT-filled composites with enhanced mechanical and electrical properties for applications including electrodes, structural materials and windblades.
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering hosted more than 200 Girl Scouts from across upstate New York on November 21, as the Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York participated in NanoExplorations, a program designed to provide a close-up look at the exciting world of nanotechnology.
The Freiburg Materials Research Center (FMF) will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its founding in 2010. The center will commemorate the occasion by co-organizing three symposia in February, March, and June.
