The new Materials [email protected] site provides forums for those engaged in developing emerging materials technologies, improving established materials technologies, educating the next generation of materials scientists and engineers, and using technical skills to meet societal needs.
In the quest to better understand one of nature's most 'ghostly' elementary particles - the neutrino - scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy?s Brookhaven National Laboratory are spreading their expertise from the mines of Canada to the mountains of China.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed a fast, inexpensive and effective method for evaluating the sugars pharmaceutical companies use to stabilize protein-drugs for storage at room temperature.
Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI), a collaborative center of the University of Maryland and NIST, have reported a new way to fine-tune the light coming from quantum dots by manipulating them with pairs of lasers.
Melissa Patterson, a W. Burghardt Turner Fellow at Stony Brook University (SBU), will give a talk at the American Chemical Society?s national meeting in Philadelphia on controlling the size of nanoclusters, research she performed using a new instrument at the U.S. Department of Energy?s Brookhaven National Laboratory.
Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania have theorized a way to increase the speed of pulses of light that bound across chains of tiny metal particles to well past the speed of light by altering the particle shape.
The discovery is based on previous pioneering research by Professor De Silva and his colleagues at Queen?s, which created ?catch and tell? sensor molecules that send out light signals when they catch chemicals in blood.
Energieeffizienz, eines der aktuell bedeutsamsten Themen fuer Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft, wird von Mikro- und Nanotechnik-Experten auf der MST-Regionalkonferenz NRW 2008 am 27. Oktober in Dortmund diskutiert.
