Avik Ghosh, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Virginia, recently won an internal Fund for Excellence in Science and Technology (FEST) Distinguished Young Investigator Grant for a research proposal that could ultimately transform transistor technology.
INO (the National Optics Institute in Canada) announces the signing of a cooperation agreement with the Bavarian Laser Centre GmbH (BLZ), a research centre in Erlangen, Germany, specializing in photonic microsystems research, development, and production.
A monkey has successfully fed itself with fluid, well-controlled movements of a human-like robotic arm by using only signals from its brain, researchers from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine report in the journal Nature.
The five-year, $489,798 grant will support the University of Delaware scientist's research to determine how cells interact with potential drug carriers and how the resulting structural changes of the carrier affect its ability to efficiently deliver its payload.
University of Oregon researchers trying to flip the spin of electrons with laser bursts lasting picoseconds instead found a way to manipulate and control the spin - knowledge that may prove useful in a variety of new materials and technologies.
Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), a university-research consortium for semiconductors and related technologies, today joined with the National Science Foundation (NSF) to announce funding of $2M in grants for nanoelectronics research at six major NSF centers across seven U.S. universities.
The research scientists of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE will in future be working in close cooperation with the scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT. The new Fraunhofer Center for Sustainable Energy Systems is located in the immediate vicinity of the MIT campus.
Peptide arrays are powerful tools for developing new medical substances as well as for diagnosis and therapy techniques. A new production method based on laser printing will enable the potential of peptide arrays to be effectively utilized for the first time.
