Researchers from the Hitachi Central Research Laboratory, Japan, and the Advanced Technology Institute of the University of Surrey report that nano-designed transistors for the large area display and sensor application field benefit hugely from quantum size effects.
Detached from its biological origin, artificial DNA double helices were modified in such a way that the evolutionarily optimized biomolecule can also be used as a key structural element for the arrangement of metal ions.
To kickoff the 'Infrastructure, Sustainability and Testing Management ' Conference, Sept 23-25, that the American Filtration and Separations Society is holding in Charlotte, there will be seven short courses on September 22, 2008. Two of these courses are 'Microfiltration Membrane' and 'Ultrafiltration Membrane' training.
A commentary by Samuel S. Epstein, M.D. Dr. Epstein is Professor Emeritus of Environmental and Occupational Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health and Chairman of Cancer Prevention Coalition.
Arizona State University researchers have made a breakthrough in understanding the effect on climate change of a key component of urban pollution. The discovery could lead to more accurate forecasting of possible global-warming activity.
The New South Wales-Gangwon Technology Collaboration Ageeement creates a technology cooperation framework of which the key element is a collaborative grant program to support joint proof of concept projects of one year or less between researchers and/or companies from both New South Wales and Gangwon.
A flash of light can temporarily alter the structure of graphite. Researchers found that - for a brief moment at least - exposure to light changes the chemical bonding in graphite to a form reminiscent of diamond.
A University of Utah study is shedding light on an important, unsolved physics problem: the relationship between chaos theory - which is based on 300-year-old Newtonian physics - and the modern theory of quantum mechanics.
Physicists at JILA, a joint institute of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Colorado at Boulder, have demonstrated a powerful new technique that reveals hidden properties of ultracold atomic gases.
