Keithley Instruments, Inc., a world leader in advanced electrical test instruments and systems, will offer a free, web-based seminar titled 'Photovoltaic Measurements: Testing the Electrical Properties of Today?s Solar Cells'.
U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory scientist Tiffany Santos has been awarded a L'Oreal USA Fellowship for Women in Science for her work in materials science at the Center for Nanoscale Materials.
Argonne Center for Nanoscale Materials staff in the Nanofabrication & Devices Group together with collaborative users from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee have fabricated a miniaturized gas sensor using hybrid nanostructures consisting of SnO2 nanocrystals supported on multiwalled carbon nanotubes.
Researchers have demonstrated that, counter to classical Newtonian mechanics, an entire collection of superconducting electrons in an ultrathin superconducting wire is able to 'tunnel' as a pack from a state with a higher electrical current to one with a notably lower current, providing more evidence of the phenomenon of macroscopic quantum tunneling.
Over 170 businesses, research groups and other organizations are involved in the emerging field of synthetic biology throughout the United States, according to a new interactive map launched today by the Synthetic Biology Project at the Woodrow Wilson Center.
Rice University researchers today announced that the first field tests of 'nanorust', the university's revolutionary, low-cost technology for removing arsenic from drinking water, will begin later this year in Guanajuato, Mexico.
In the second call for proposals, projects focus on either the development of new technologies or on the interface between biomedical research and genomics. The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) approved six RTD-projects today.
A first-of-its-kind clinical trial exploring a way to diagnose cancer in its earliest stages is being conducted at the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute through a National Cancer Institute grant.
Rice physicist Huey Huang is on a quest to understand death -- or at least a little piece of it. Huang has spent the past 15 years studying the properties of cell membranes in an effort to unravel a mystery about cell suicide, a mystery that starts with a tiny hole.
