Scientists are puzzled by the nanobubbles that can develop on surfaces under water. It should be impossible for them to exist but nevertheless they remain intact for hours. They are something of a mystery, yet it is possible to manipulate the development of these bubbles.
Researchers have accurately identified tools that model the atomic and void structures of a network-forming elemental material. These tools may revolutionize the process of creating new solar panels, flat-panel displays, optical storage media and myriad other technological devices.
Researchers at the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science at Northwestern University recently performed experiments and computations to resolve major existing discrepancies about the scaling of ZnO nanowires elastic properties.
Aktuelle Forschungsergebnisse zur Anwendung von Nanoteilchen in der Biomedizin zeigen, dass gefuellte und nur einige Nanometer grosse Kohlenstoffroehrchen (CNT) fuer kontaktlose Temperaturmessungen an Krebstumoren verwendet werden koennen.
Sharp today announces the U.S. launch of Sharp Solar Academy, a unique environmental education program designed to empower today?s youth with the knowledge to change and improve their environmental future.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded funding to the Georgia Institute of Technology to create a new Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) - The Georgia Tech Laboratory for New Electronic Materials.
The SEMI PV Group today announced the publication of a White Paper that details a strong future vision for the PV industry, presenting strategies the industry can implement now to help ensure a sustainable and profitable growth.
Arrays of flexible microcantilevers - micrometre-thin diving boards - can be used as sensors to detect binding interactions between drugs and their targets, a team of international scientists has shown.
If one could deliver magnetic, cancer-fighting drugs directly to tumors - and if one could keep the drugs in place at the tumor sites with magnets - one could avoid some of the side-effects of giving people cancer drugs that end up distributed through their entire body.
The NoE PolyNet (Network of Excellence for the Exploitation of Organic and Large Area Electronics / OLAE) aims to establish Europe in the OLAE area as the world leader in science, technology development and subsequent commercial exploitation of printing and large area technologies for heterointegration of flexible electronics.
Eighteen semifinalist teams competed on the UC Berkeley (UCB) campus October 2 for four first prizes, each including $10,000 cash, $2,000 in supplies, mentoring from experts, and a space in the new Venture Lab housed in the College of Engineering.
Svilen Bobev, assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Delaware, has been selected to receive the 2009 Margaret C. Etter Early Career Award from the American Crystallographic Association (ACA).
