The University of Southampton's Southampton Nanofabrication Centre, which opens next week, will make it possible to manufacture high-speed and non-volatile ?universal memory? devices for industry within 5 years.
Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) authorized the University of Science and Technology of China to build the Research and Demonstration Center for Integrated Utilization of Solar Energy in Hefei, Anhui province.
Superfast quantum computer getting closer Researchers of the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at the TU Delft have succeeded in getting a grip on the environment of a quantum particle, thereby increasing the control over single electrons.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded Rutgers University two grants worth $6.4 million to fund graduate research in clean and sustainable energy resources using biotechnology and nanotechnology.
Metallofullerenes are capable of forming ordered supramolecular structures with different orientations. By specifically manipulating these orientations it might be possible to store and subsequently read out information.
Nanoparticles combining platinum and gold act as superefficient catalysts, but chemists have struggled to create them in an industrially useful form. Rice University chemists have answered the call this week with a polymer-coated version of gold-platinum nanorods, the first catalysts of their kind that can be used in the organic solvents favored by chemical and drug manufacturers.
The purpose of the OECD Series on the Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials is to provide up-to-date information on the diverse activities at OECD related to human health and environmental safety. The latest publications are available for download .
The National Science Foundation has awarded Clemson University researchers $2 million to study ways to mimic the suction mechanism used by butterflies and moths to feed so that the same method can be used in medical diagnostics.
Was Silizium fuer die Entwickler von Computerchips, ist fuer Laserphysiker eine Substanz namens Lithiumniobat. Diese Stellung verdanken die durchsichtigen Kristalle vor allem einer schoenen Eigenschaft: Sie koennen die Farbe von Laserlicht veraendern. Dazu muessen sie allerdings ausreichend sauber sein. Und diese Reinigung war bislang ein schwieriges und teures Unterfangen. Forscher um den Bonner Physiker Professor Dr. Karsten Buse konnten freien Elektronen nun mit einem Besen aus Licht aus dem Kristall kehren.
Pat Thiel, senior chemist at the U.S. Department of Energy?s Ames Laboratory, has been named the winner of the 2010 Arthur W. Adamson Award for Distinguished Service in the Advancement of Surface Chemistry.
