Der im Auftrag des Bundesministeriums für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) von der VDI Technologiezentrum GmbH geplante Branchendialog "NanoEngineering" soll am 8. Dezember 2009 in Düsseldorf zeigen, wie neue Entwicklungen aus der Material- und Nanotechnologieforschung in die Praxis des Maschinen- und Anlagenbaus umgesetzt und damit Kosteneinsparungen und neue Märkte erschlossen werden können.
A new statistical analysis technique that identifies and removes systematic bias, noise and equipment-based artifacts from experimental data could lead to more precise and reliable measurement of nanomaterials and nanostructures likely to have future industrial applications.
Combat-related injuries plague the military in part because of multidrug-resistant bacteria. Imagine being able to spray a compound fracture with microcapsules that deliver a drug to bolster the immune system, stopping infection before it starts.
A Princeton-led research team has revealed surprising information about how electron behavior influences the conduction of electricity in a class of high-temperature superconductors. An increased understanding of this mechanism could one day transform a number of technologies, including the transmission of electrical power.
The Institute of Microelectronics (IME), a research institute of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), today announced the launch of the 10th Electronic Packaging Research Consortium (EPRC-10) to address key integration challenges of 3-dimensional Packaging and Embedded Module technologies.
Researchers in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leicester have developed a new synthesis method, which has led them to the discovery of fluorescent silicon nanoparticles and may ultimately help track the uptake of drugs by the body's cells.
The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded chemist Dr Alexander Kros a Starting Independent Researcher Grant of 1.4 million euro. He will be using the grant to study how molecules penetrate the natural barrier of a cell membrane. If his research is successful, it will in time bring about a revolution in how medicines are administered.
Ein wichtiger Schritt auf dem Weg zur Untersuchung grundlegender Quanteneffekte ist Forschern der Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg und des Erlanger Max-Planck-Instituts für die Physik des Lichts gelungen.
The University of Houston is expanding its nanoscience and nanotechnology offerings this fall with the launch of a unique program intended to give undergraduates in-depth training and access to state-of-the-art equipment.
