New research provides a more thorough understanding of new mechanisms, which makes it possible to switch a magnetic nanoparticle without any magnetic field and may enable computers to more accurately write and store information.
Cosmetics Design-Europe.com runs an article today saying that "Nanomaterials used in cosmetics have been compared to the invisible airborne killer, asbestos, by a high-profile chemistry professor at the BA Festival of Science in York." Kristen Kulinowski answers.
With 1.4 billion Euros ($1.8 billion) allocated to 550 projects in the field of nanosciences and nanotechnology, the EU's 6th Research Framework Programme accounts for one-third of total public funding for nanotechnology and is the world's largest single funding agency worldwide for this exciting field.
Part of the funding, $1 million, in collaboration with UT Southwestern Medical Center, will go to conduct research into the use of nanotechnology for the treatment of a variety of medical conditions including cancer, autoimmune deficiencies, HIV and organ transplant rejection.
A new topical lotion that penetrates the skin deeply enough to target and eliminate serious skin infections, but without being systemically absorbed, has shown a high degree of safety and tolerability in patients with onychomycosis, or toenail fungus, a new study has shown.
Scientists in Israel are reporting the first simple and inexpensive method for building the large-scale networks of single-walled carbon nanotubes needed for using these microscopic wisps in a future generation of faster, smaller, and more powerful computers and portable electronic devices.
