Most science research programs that run on high-performance computers like the IBM Blue Gene/P Intrepid at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) generate enormous quantities of data that represent the results of their calculations. But scientists can also use the ALCF to visualize, explore and communicate their findings as highly accurate simulations and often beautiful images.
Researchers at MIT have found a novel method for etching extremely narrow lines on a microchip, using a material that can be switched from transparent to opaque, and vice versa, just by exposing it to certain wavelengths of light.
Researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin Biotechnology and Bioengineering Center in Milwaukee have just made the very expensive and promising area of protein research more accessible to scientists worldwide.
A study day attended by several Tunisian and foreign experts in nanotechnologies was organized on Thursday in Tunis. The study day which was held at the national institute of applied sciences and technologies of Tunis (INSAT), laid the groundwork for the second edition of the Tunisian nanosciences and nanotechnologies Days due to be held in Tunis in July 2009.
An international research team has reconciled two theories that explain the properties of the pion. The work is important because this subatomic particle plays a key role in the strong interaction - the fundamental force that holds atomic nuclei together.
Researchers have developed a new, table-top technique called RAPID (Resolution Augmentation through Photo-Induced Deactivation) lithography that makes it possible to create small features without the use of ultraviolet light.
Ohio State University researchers have developed a new strategy to overcome one of the major obstacles to a grand challenge in physics. What they've discovered could eventually aid high-temperature superconductivity, as well as the development of new high-tech materials.
On April 26, hundreds of students, staff, and faculty from premier Bay Area research universities and laboratories, as well as scientists and businesspeople from industry will converge at the 6th annual Berkeley Nanotechnology Forum.
CEA/Leti (the Electronics and Information Technology Laboratory of the CEA, based in Grenoble), and IBM today announced that they will collaborate on research in semiconductor and nanoelectronics technology.
Hirosi Ooguri and Masahito Yamazaki of the Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (IPMU) developed a new method to use crystal melting models in three dimensions to identify quantum states of black holes in superstring theory.
