Over the next seven years, unique new experimental facilities for research with X-rays will come into operation. This decision, taken by the ESRF Council, representing the 19 countries financing the ESRF, confirms Europe's vision to expand its global leadership in photon science.
Researchers in Sweden have succeeded in creating electrical wires consisting of protein fibers encased in plastic. The 10 nanometer thin fibers are self-organizing and compatible with biological systems.
Researchers at AIST in Japan have developed an array spotter capable of dispensing an infinitesimal amount of liquid sample and of changing freely the intervals between the capillaries that serve as dispensing outlets.
Wissenschaftler des Karlsruher Instituts fuer Technologie (KIT) haben einen unerwarteten elektronischen Effekt entdeckt, der mittelfristig einen Durchbruch bei der Herstellung neuartiger Schaltelemente bringen koennte.
Researchers report synthesizing a molecular motor made of DNA that includes three important properties in one molecule. Although still limited in its forward motion, this mechanism could eventually transport cargo in real nanotech devices.
Scientists from Queen Mary, University of London have improved their understanding of the inner workings of our computers and mp3 players, thanks to an exciting new field of research called ?organic spintronics?.
Energy concerns will not disappear despite the falling price of oil, so investors can expect significant long-term opportunities in the cleantech space, according to a new thematic report published by Steven Milunovich, Merrill Lynch cleantech strategist.
A team of scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy?s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has won a prestigious Gordon Bell Prize, sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), for special achievement in high performance computing for their research into the energy harnessing potential of nanostructures.
A delegation of the Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies (RUSNANO) headed by Director General Anatoly Chubais visited the Moscow State University (MSU) to see laboratories specializing in the field of nanotechnologies and reached a preliminary agreement on the creation of a center for nanotechnologies.
The grant is for the build-out and outfitting of a Center for Integrated Precision and Quantum Measurement (CIPQM), part of a larger project to construct a new building for the school's physics and astronomy departments.
The Hastings Center and the Centre for Biomedical Ethics at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore have announced a collaboration aimed at expanding bioethics scholarship in Asia.
Leatherhead Food International and the Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network (NanoKTN) have teamed up to launch a focus group to promote and develop a dialogue between the Government and the Food Industry to concentrate on the role of emerging micro- and nanotechnologies in food, drink and pharmafood applications.
