Capping its inaugural year of funding several research initiatives, Science Foundation Arizona has been a major catalyst in enhancing ASU's research portfolio. This statewide public-private partnership, made possible by an appropriation from the governor and Arizona Legislature, awarded more than $8 million to ASU research awards in 2007.
Recently published research has shed light on a semiconducting material with zero thermal expansion. The research may play a role in the design of future generations of electronics and optoelectronics that can withstand a wide range of temperatures.
Researchers at E2TAC, the Energy and Environmental Technology Applications Center at the University at Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering are researching and developing a range of leading edge nanoscale technologies that hold out the promise of realizing greater yields at lower costs across a range of conventional, as well as renewable alternative power generation technologies.
Researchers in New Jersey report development of a new type of non-stick material whose ability to shed liquids like water from a duck's back can be turned on or off simply by flipping an electrical switch.
In an exclusive interview, Professor Niels Christian Nielsen, winner of this year's Danisco Award, shared his thoughts on the rise of nanotechnology and gave insight on this fascinating new area of the food industry.
Uppsala University has been selected for the prestigious EU assignment to lead one of four pilot projects to provide novel models and experience of excellence-driven integrated partnerships at European level.
Reflecting upon almost twenty years as head of the European consumers' organisation, Murray highlighted digital rights, nanotechnology and GM technology as the predominant issues to emerge during his tenure.
Researchers have succeeded in manufacturing a stacked split-ring metamaterial for the optical wavelength range. This layer-by-layer stacking procedure, which can be repeated as often as desired, is capable of producing well aligned three-dimensional metamaterial structures.
The ISIS Second Target Station Project at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire achieved a major milestone on Friday December 14, at the first attempt and two days ahead of schedule. Protons were successfully extracted into the new proton transfer beamline from the existing ISIS accelerator and delivered to the new target station.
