Nanotechnology it's uses and challenges for business. As a topic, nanotechnology is complex, controversial and cool all at the same time and this Business Forum session aims to put it all into perspective - not by looking at future 'imagine this' or 'what if' scenarios, but at how and why emerging technologies are being put to use in all kinds of really useful products today.
Researchers from the University of Minnesota have demonstrated a one-step technique for producing a class of magnetic nanoparticles that could be used in everything from biomedical applications to data storage.
Conductor paths in sensor systems have to be correctly 'wired'. Now, instead of using obtrusive connecting wires, researchers print the conductor paths. The connections thus produced are thinner, and the sensor delivers more accurate measurements.
The fate of carbon-based nanoparticles spilled into groundwater - and the ability of municipal filtration systems to remove the nanoparticles from drinking water - depend on subtle differences in the solution properties of the water carrying the particles, a new study has found.
