Microoled and CEA-Leti announce the OLED microdisplay with the finest pixel pitch (more than 1.7 million sub-pixels, 2 to 4 times more than the other emissive technologies) and the lowest power consumption reported to date (4 times more efficient).
A group of physicists from the University of Liege, Belgium shows how lab technicians can make droplets dance, float and bounce above a surface, keeping small amounts of fluid free of contamination and ripe for testing.
Take a gold sample the size of the head of a push pin, shoot a laser through it, and suddenly more than 100 billion particles of anti-matter appear. The anti-matter, also known as positrons, shoots out of the target in a cone-shaped plasma jet.
Taking a novel approach to educating the public about the fast-growing field of nanotechnology, the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany and Colonie Center today unveiled what is believed to be the first nanotechnology exhibit to be located in a shopping center anywhere in the world.
Yale Professor Mark Reed, whose research has contributed to nanotechnology in areas from quantum dots to molecular electronics, has been named a fellow of the IEEE, one of the most prestigious honors given by this professional association for the advancement of technology.
A*STAR's Institute of Microelectronics (IME), Singapore and Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing, one of the world?s top dedicated semiconductor foundries, have successfully optimized a range of fine-pitch packaging technologies for copper metallization and low-k dielectric silicon processes at 65 nanometer and below.
Researchers are investigating microneedles, nanoparticles and polymer carriers as potential new techniques to combat the leading cause of visual impairment and blindness in the United States, according to a report from the Third Annual ARVO/Pfizer Ophthalmics Research Institute Conference.
When atoms in a crystal are struck by laser light, their electrons, excited by the light, typically begin moving back and forth together in a regular pattern, resembling nanoscale soldiers marching in a lockstep formation. But according to a new theory developed by Johns Hopkins researchers, under the right conditions these atoms will rebel against uniformity.
The institution, jointly established by the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag) and the Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), has a federal mandate to strengthen independent research, consulting and training in the ecotoxicology field.
First, the good news: young people in Europe are overwhelmingly interested in science and technology and positive about the benefits they bring to society, according to a new Eurobarometer survey on young people's attitudes to science. The bad news is that few are interested in pursuing a scientific career.
Researchers at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan have developed polymer films that change color instantaneously and reversibly in response to changes in the tension applied.
United Arab Emirates (UAE) Higher Education and Scientific Research Minister HE Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, opened today the second International Conference on Bio-Nanotechnology conference at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
