tinytechjobs, the premier job board dedicated to jobs in tiny technology, including careers in MEMS, nanotechnology, microtechnology, and information technology, announced today the celebration of its fifth anniversary in the small tech jobs space.
The Koerber European Science Award for 2009, worth 750,000 euros in prize money, goes to Andre Geim. The Dutch physicist has distinguished himself through his pioneering studies in the field of two-dimensional carbon crystals.
Research on a novel organic photovoltaic design presented by researchers at the Advanced Technology Institute (ATI) at the University of Surrey has won first prize in the recently concluded UK NanoForum 2008, jointly organised by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and UK Trade and Investment.
Chemists at the University of Liverpool working with IOTA NanoSolutions have developed a new technology to produce nanoparticles of insoluble drugs that mimic the behaviour and the effectiveness of dissolved drugs.
Research that could lead to brighter LCD screens, more efficient solar panels, improved biomedical imaging and high-tech security sensors has won the University of Melbourne's Chancellor's Prize for Excellence in PhD.
Rods, cones, cubes and spheres - move aside. Tiny gold stars, smaller than a billionth of a meter, may hold the promise for new approaches to medical diagnoses or testing for environmental contaminants.
The AIP Physics Industry Day is an opportunity to bust nanotechnology myths. And it?s not just from the perspective of scientists and researchers, but also policy makers, industries currently using nanotechnology in their products and those involved in determining Australia?s future regulatory framework.
As photonics - using beams of light in place of electricity for communications and computing - becomes more common, engineers need new tools for troubleshooting. Now researchers at Cornell have created a way to plot the waveform of an ultrashort-lived optical signal with a resolution of less than a trillionth of a second.
The latest quick freezing techniques coupled with sophisticated scanning electron microscopy techniques, are allowing physicists to create ice films in cold conditions similar to outer space and observe the detailed molecular organisation, yielding clues to fundamental questions including possibly the origin of life.
A new configurable chip which can correct faults in newly- manufactured transistors and can be implemented in mainstream devices such as mobile phones and computers, has been developed by engineers at the University of Southampton.
Scientists in Canada are reporting progress toward a new type of 'liquid mirror' - mirrors made with highly reflective liquids - whose shape can be changed to provide superior optical properties over conventional solid mirrors.
