R+D Magazine has recognized a tabletop microscope developed by a team of Colorado State University and Berkeley researchers at the National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center for Science and Technology as one of the Top 100 most significant technological advances for 2008.
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany today announced plans for the world's first celebration of 'NANOvember,' a month-long series of events and activities that showcase the exciting world of nanotechnology.
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California at Berkeley have used in situ transmission electron microscopy to measure hollow spherical nanoparticles that withstand extreme stress and deform without losing strength.
The American Physical Society has awarded a UT Dallas researcher one of the society's highest honors, recognizing Dr. Yves Chabal?s development of methods to better understand processes that take place on the silicon surface that is literally the platform for the multibillion-dollar semiconductor industry.
A scientist at the University of Wisconsin has developed a host of coatings that heal shallow pits and fractures on almost any material ? from metal to glass to silicon. The coatings also prevent further degradation.
During the second edition of the NanoRisk conference, to be held in Paris next week (October 21-23), researchers, industry and government representatives will address nanotechnology risk questions in detail.
During the NanoEnergy conference, to be held in Paris Tapis Rouge Conference Center next week (October 21-23 October), researchers and industry will address all aspects of nanotechnology's role in the energy sector.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has selected 20 project proposals for funding following its Nanomanufacturing for Energy Efficiency 2008 Research Call. The projects promise to make revolutionary improvements in a broad range of energy production, storage, and consumption applications that will reduce energy and carbon intensity in industrial processes.
UC Santa Barbara?s Center for Nanotechnology in Society (CNS) and the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) invite the Santa Barbara community to attend a casual public forum called 'Nano-Meeter' to discuss the possibilities for applying nanotechnologies to energy needs.
By manipulating the way tiny droplets of fluid dry, Cornell researchers have created an innovative way to make and pattern nanoscale wires and other devices that ordinarily can be made only with expensive lithographic tools. The process is guided by molds that 'stamp' the desired structures.
