The School aims to increase metrology and standardization competencies among specialists working in testing and multipurpose centers and laboratories in nanoindustry areas, including participants in the NANOCERTIFICA certification system for nanoindustry manufacture.
Oregon researchers have synthesized an elusive metal-hydroxide compound in sufficient and rapidly produced yields, potentially paving the way for improved precursor inks that could boost semiconductor capabilities for large-area applications.
Die Bremer Produktionstechniker um Professor Lutz Maedler sind Partner einer internationalen Forschungsinitiative zur Etablierung der wissenschaftlichen Grundlagen fuer Nano-Bio-Wechselwirkungen innerhalb des Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology (CEIN)
Scientists in Canada have recreated a famous painting on the microscale using a new protein patterning technique. The technique can also be used to mimic patterns of proteins found in cells and could lead to advances in neuroscience.
An animal's reproductive capabilities are established early in development, when a homogeneous embryonic cell population gives rise to two distinct cell types - somatic cells that form the vast majority of body tissues, and primordial germ cells (PGCs) that ultimately yield spermatozoa or ova.
A team of Japanese researchers have designed liquid crystals - a phase that flows like a liquid but has short-range order between the molecules - that spontaneously assemble to form a donor-acceptor array for photovoltaic devices.
In the quest to slow down and ultimately understand chemistry at the level of atoms and electrons, University of Colorado at Boulder and Canadian scientists have found a new way to peer into a molecule that allows them to see how its electrons rearrange as the molecule changes shape.
The U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory has teamed with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the University of Illinois at Chicago and Northwestern University to form the Illinois Center for Advanced Tribology, which will develop solutions to technical issues related to transportation, health and systems that operate in extreme environments.
It has been a success for the past six years, and it's back again. The 7th Annual Charlotte Biotechnology Conference (CBC) will be held in the Student Activities Center (SAC) on October 28, 2008 and will feature an array of different speakers elaborating on the different aspects of biotechnology.
The U.S. Department of Energy is sponsoring the inaugural Science + Energy Research Challenge (SERCh), Nov. 9-10, 2008, at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which is partnering with Oak Ridge Associated Universities to host the event.
