As we have written here before, the utter nonsense of claiming that nanotechnology products will be a 'trillion dollar market' has become a self-perpetuating claim that is eagerly adopted by politicians to push industrial policies, subsidies and investments.
Archaeological evidence suggests that glass was first made in the Middle East sometime around 3000 B.C. However, almost 5,000 years later, scientists are still perplexed about how glassy materials make the transition from a molten state to a solid.
The project, titled 'A Facility to Perform Bio-molecular Imaging; Real Time Phase Mapping of Biological Dynamics,' is designed to provide real-time images of biological processes at nano and pico scale resolutions, a feat never achieved before.
The Stanford School of Engineering today announced that Jen-Hsun Huang, the founder and chief executive officer of leading visual computing company NVIDIA and a Stanford electrical engineering alumnus, will donate $30 million to help build a modern and sustainable destination for education and research, the Jen-Hsun Huang School of Engineering Center.
The world's largest-ever physics experiment has got underway at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, in Switzerland. The first beam of protons successfully made its way around the 27 km particle accelerator on the morning of September 10.
Fusion for Energy with the support of the European Commission, Japan Atomic Energy Agency and ITER Organisation have successfully tested a prototype superconductor for the ITER Poloidal Field coils made of Niobium(Nb)-Titanium(Ti) reaching a stable operation at 52 kA in a magnetic field of 6.4 Tesla.
Wie Nanotechnologie Unternehmen aufgestellt sind und welchen Weiterbildungsbedarf sie sehen, ist einer aktuellen Studie zu entnehmen, die vom Bundesministerium fuer Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) in Auftrag gegeben und vom VDI Technologiezentrum koordiniert worden ist.
A Florida State University researcher who uses high-powered computers to map the workings of proteins has uncovered a mechanism that gives scientists a better understanding of how evolution occurs at the molecular level.
Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, are continuing their march toward creating a synthetic, gecko-like adhesive, one sticky step at a time. Their latest milestone is the first adhesive that cleans itself after each use without the need for water or chemicals, much like the remarkable hairs found on the gecko lizard's toes.
