Dreidimensionale Zellkulturmodelle, Konvergierende Technologien und Siliziumkompatible Photonik - diese drei Themen stehen im Mittelpunkt der aktuellen Ausgabe des Newsletters 'future technologies update'.
Using a new detection system, scientists of the German Cancer Research Center (Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, DKFZ) have unraveled the molecular mechanisms by which inflammations influence the glucose concentration in the blood.
A Queensland University of Technology researcher who has come up with a three-dimensional (3D) technology platform for biomedical research has received early-stage funding to accelerate the process of development to commercialisation.
Senior Metallurgical Engineer and Engineering Manager Dr. John Tartaglia of Stork Climax Research Services will be presenting a seminar titled 'Aspects of Electron Microscopy and Microanalysis', on Friday, August 21.
Modelling the fabrication processes for integrated circuits can slash production development time and costs by up to 40%. But as transistors, already at nano-scales, become ever smaller, researchers are modelling new worlds.
After more than 20 years with the Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center, Mildred Holley, manager of technology programs at the Arkansas Small Business Technology Development Center, is the new operations director of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock?s Nanotechnology Center.
Fibrin, the chief ingredient of blood clots, is a remarkably versatile polymer. On one hand, it forms a network of fibers -- a blood clot -- that stems the loss of blood at an injury site while remaining pliable and flexible. On the other hand, fibrin provides a scaffold for thrombi, clots that block blood vessels and cause tissue damage, leading to cardiovascular disease. The answer is a process known as protein unfolding.
Topics dealing with cost savings or subjects like 'Green MEMS' were popular in Tokyo. The fusion of microsystems technology with bio- and nanotechnology to hetero-functional, integrated devices is in focus of Japanese companies and institutes.
Physicists at the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI) in Vienna and Innsbruck, Austria, have created an interaction between light and a micromechanical resonator that is strong enough to transfer quantum effects.
In its fourth year running, this year's annual UK NanoForum and Emerging Technologies 2009 comprises a two-day conference and exhibition bringing over 100 senior international delegates and 350 UK delegates together to network and identify potential business and collaboration opportunities.
A dedicated laboratory space on the UC Riverside campus moves Bourns College of Engineering another step closer to a more comprehensive nanoengineering center. The space at Pierce Hall is now home to an advanced metal, organic, chemical, vapor, deposition (MOCVD) reactor.
Researchers from RIKEN Advanced Science Institute in Wako have developed a method to immobilize oligonucleotides on gold nanoparticle surfaces with precise control over their number and geometric arrangement.
