Researchers at The University of Manchester have produced tiny liquid crystal devices with electrodes made from graphene ? an exciting development that could lead to computer and TV displays based on this technology.
A newly announced course in MIT's Professional Education Program will provide a comprehensive overview of how nanomaterials such as nanoparticles, nanocapsules, micelles, microemulsions, liposomes, nanoporous materials, and polymer multilayers can be prepared, stabilized, surface-functionalized and assembled for applications in biotechnology, biomedicine, and pharmaceuticals.
Sir J. Fraser Stoddart, a world-renowned chemist who joined the Northwestern University faculty in January as Board of Trustees Professor of Chemistry in the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences, will be the featured speaker at the University?s third nanotechnology town hall meeting May 13.
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Max Planck Institute for Physics in Germany believe they can achieve a significant increase in the accuracy of one of the fundamental constants of nature by boosting an electron to an orbit as far as possible from the atomic nucleus that binds it.
In what should be good news for integrated circuit manufacturers, recent studies have helped resolve two important questions about an emerging microcircuit manufacturing technology called nanoimprint lithography - yes, it can accurately stamp delicate insulating structures on advanced microchips, and, no, it doesn?t damage them, in fact it makes them better.
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development has brought countries together to pool their resources and test the human health and environmental safety of several nanomaterials that are already in use.
In the rapid and fast-growing world of nanotechnology, researchers are continually on the lookout for new building blocks to push innovation and discovery to scales much smaller than the tiniest speck of dust.
A breakthrough barrier technology from Singapore A*STAR?s Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) protects sensitive devices like organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) and solar cells from moisture 1000 times more effectively than any other technology available in the market, opening up new opportunities for the up-and-coming plastic electronics sector.
In May, 14 striking, larger-than-life photographic prints that are both comfortingly organic and starkly abstract will enable patrons of Mother Fool's Coffeehouse in Madison to visualize a scientific world that's rarely seen outside the laboratory.
