Expert disputes the claim that the so-called agglomeration of engineered nanomaterials will result in super-sized clusters so large that they cannot penetrate deep inside the body, thereby eliminating the potential for harm.
A transistor containing quantum dots that can count individual photons (the smallest particles of light) has been designed and demonstrated at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Robert Service, nanotechnology reporter at Science magazine, will interview Dr. Roco about nanotechnology at a Friday, November 9th, 2007, 12:30 p.m. event and live webcast at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
Registration closes Oct. 12 for a two-day seminar at Wayne State University that will explore how nanoscience will impact future technology and biomedicine applications.The event is scheduled for Oct. 15-16 at the McGregor Conference Center.
The University of Leicester and the East Midlands Region are leading a national programme aimed at providing schools and colleges with hands-on access to state of the art scientific instrumentation in the study of chemistry.
A University of Arkansas researcher and his colleagues have found a novel way to 'look' at atomic orbitals, and have directly shown for the first time that they change substantially when interacting at the interface of a ferromagnet and a high-temperature superconductor.
The U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science today released a comprehensive update of its landmark 2003 publication, Facilities for the Future of Science: A Twenty-Year Outlook, that shows the agency has made "significant progress" in deploying the scientific facilities and instruments that the United States needs to capture world scientific leadership, extend the frontiers of science and support the Department's missions.
BSI British Standards will publish nine documents for nanotechnology terminology and guidance for UK industry, addressing nanotechnology health and safety issues, materials specifications, and labelling of nanotechnology-based products.
