Six undergraduate students from colleges and universities in New York State have been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) from Brookhaven National Laboratory to compete in the first annual Science and Energy Research Challenge (SERCh).
A new study published in the September/October issue of the journal Marketing Science reveals the world's most innovative countries, with Japan and the Nordic countries earning top spots and the United States finishing in sixth.
To make Indian industry a part of the nanotechnology revolution, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has decided to tie up with educational and research institutes in the country under its 10-point action plan.
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.
