The quantity of artificial carbon-based nanoparticles in lake and river-beds, originating from new products, is negligible compared to the concentration of natural carbon-based nanoparticles that are present in such beds.
A new PhD thesis from Chalmers shows that the multifaceted material perovskite could be of benefit in three key applications: fuel cells, gas separation prior to the storage of carbon dioxide and nanocomponents in electronic products.
Die Deutsche Vakuum-Gesellschaft zeichnet Dr. Juergen Fassbender vom Forschungszentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (FZD) fuer seine Arbeiten zur Ionenstrahl-Modifikation von ultraduennen magnetischen Schichten und Schichtsystemen mit dem Gaede-Preis 2009 aus.
EuroNanoForum 2009 is the fourth conference of a set of international nanotechnology conferences organized within the framework of national Presidencies of the European Union. This will be a 4-day conference taking place from 2nd to 5th of June 2009, in Prague.
The two-day event, to open on March 30 in Jerusalem's Inbal Hotel and organized by Kenes, will attract world-class experts, investors, businessmen and governmental representatives from Israel and abroad, and will include not only lectures and over 300 poster sessions but also a large exhibition.
Sri Lanka's Science and Technology Minister Prof. Tissa Vitarana stressed the importance of introducing Nanotechnology to industries and said fund controllers in the country must extend their fullest co-operation to develop the technology.
The article, titled 'Power: Battery Boost,' discusses how ultracapacitors differ from batteries in their energy storage abilities, and their ability to provide power pulses, which in some applications could be more than 10 times the rated battery power.
Ziel eines neuen Forschungsprojekts ist es, definierte optoelektronische Eigenschaften neuartiger Materialsysteme auf Molekuelbasis zu designen. Die VW-Stiftung unterstuetzt das Forschungsvorhaben mit insgesamt 500.000 Euro.
This is the tale of two biological substances-cells from mammals and bacteria. It's a story about the havoc these microscopic entities can wreak on all manner of surfaces, from mighty ships to teeth and medical devices, and how two Syracuse University researchers are discovering new ways to prevent the damage.
A new metal nanostructure developed by researchers at the University of California, Santa Cruz, has already shown promise in cancer therapy studies and could be used for chemical and biological sensors and other applications as well.
The University of Wisconsin-Madison Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) on Nanostructured Interfaces presents NanoDays 2009, part of the second annual nationwide festival of educational programs about nanoscale science and engineering and its potential impact on the future.
Researchers at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock said they have developed a process involving nanostructure that shows great promise in boosting the efficiency of titania photoanodes used to convert solar energy into hydrogen in fuel cells.
