Eric D. Isaacs, a prominent University of Chicago physicist and senior administrator at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory, has been selected to become the next director of Argonne.
The NanoBusiness Alliance today announced the continuation of its NanoBusiness Talent program, which connects future scientists and high-tech companies by arranging summer internships for local high school students at Chicago-area nanotechnology companies with a grant from the Department of Energy.
A novel technique that enables researchers to push individual molecules into specifically arranged patterns recently allowed researchers at Stanford University to shatter the long held belief that one bit per atom is the limit for encoding information and reclaim the title of producers of the world's smallest letters.
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany announced today that it will host three prestigious global nanotechnology conferences this year that will bring hundreds of leading faculty, scientists and researchers from around the world to CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex.
There is a lot of hope invested in hydrogen, but it also presents some problems. It is energy-rich, clean and, as a constituent of water, of almost unlimited availability. However, so far it has been difficult to access it. Scientists have now found a simple, low-cost way to produce hydrogen.
This first full-colored introduction to nanomaterials and nanotechnology addresses in particular the needs of engineers who have to know the special phenomena and potentials, without going into too much scientific detail of the physics and chemistry involved.
Researchers from New York are reporting production of the longest platinum nanowires ever made - an advance that they say could speed development of fuel cells for cars, trucks, and other everyday uses.
The EU-funded NANOMED ('Nanomedicine ethical, regulatory, social and economic environment') project is focusing on all aspects of nanomedicine, with emphasis on providing an objective answer to claims that this field will have a huge impact on the healthcare sector.
Honoring the next generation of American innovators, Intel Corporation has announced the winners of America's oldest and most prestigious pre-college science competition, the Intel Science Talent Search.
Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have taken a critical step towards the goal of artificial photosynthesis with the discovery that nano-sized crystals of cobalt oxide can effectively carry out the critical photosynthetic reaction of splitting water molecules.
Biomedical and materials engineers at the University of Michigan have developed a nanotech coating for brain implants that helps the devices operate longer and could improve treatment for deafness, paralysis, blindness, epilepsy and Parkinson's disease.
New research from Rice University and the University of Oulu in Oulu, Finland, finds that carbon nanotubes could significantly improve the performance of electrical commutators that are common in electric motors and generators.
