Researchers in Japan have developed a design concept for a device that allows imaging at scales previously impossible for optical instruments. Their advance is based on novel imaging techniques that allow optical imaging in the subwavelength regime, where the wavelength used is larger than the smallest features of the object being imaged.
'Entrepreneurship and Innovation Clusters' is the theme of the 2008 annual conference of the national Technology Transfer Society, to be co-hosted this month by the University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering and School of Business.
The race for the best 'gecko foot' dry adhesive got a new competitor this week with a stronger and more practical material reported in the journal Science by a team of researchers from four U.S. institutions.
A Northwestern University-led research team has identified a promising new material that could transform a technology that currently cools and heats car seats -- thermoelectrics -- into one that also efficiently converts waste heat into electricity to help power the car and improve gas mileage.
Sharing knowledge and testing innovative solutions to better manage Alberta's water resources are the foundation of a world-class research agreement between the Alberta Water Research Institute and GE Water and Process Technologies.
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany will hold a Job Fair this month to assist in recruiting qualified candidates for new engineering positions that will play a critical role in expanding a variety of leading-edge programs in nanoelectronics research and development.
The Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network (NanoKTN), one of the UK's primary knowledge-based networks for Micro and Nanotechnologies, has announced a 20-month partnership with Bio Nano Consulting (BNC) Ltd and the creation of the NanoKTN's fourth theme, Bionano and Nanomedicine.
Europe is ready to accelerate development of nanotechnologies for sustainable energy systems, as delegates heard at a recent conference, Nanotechnology for Sustainable Energy, organised by the European Science Foundation.
The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences (SIBS) signed, on 25 September in Shanghai, a collaboration protocol with QIAGEN, a Netherlands holding company and world leading provider of sample and assay technologies, to develop new molecular testing solutions to improve the safety of food products.
