Green nanotechnology allows sustainable construction. This is the theme of one day workshop in Copenhagen. The workshop takes place in connection with this years Nanotech Northern Europe Conference (NTNE), the largest annual nanotech conference in Europe.
'Neurotechnology isn't science fiction - it's here today,"'says John Donoghue, professor of neuroscience and engineering and director of the Brown Institute for Brain Science. 'Devices that connect to the nervous system are already helping those with paralysis to move again, those with blindness to see and those with deafness to hear.'
If you love soccer but don't want to wait until the next World Cup in 2010 to satisfy your appetite for the most popular game on Earth, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has the answer - though the nourishment comes in very small bites.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have shown for the first time that a single layer of molecular 'salve' can significantly soothe the stresses affecting clean metal surfaces.
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.
