Counterfeit products are depriving manufacturers of revenue, harming brand integrity and, in some cases, compromising safety. Accordingly, manufacturers and brand owners are fighting to keep phony goods out of their supply chains.
The Observatory for Micro and Nano Technologies (OMNT) has announced the setting up of a multidisciplinary working group responsible for providing a scientific watch on the effects of nanoparticles and nanomaterials on health and the environment.
Surmounting several distinct hurdles to quantum computing, physicists have found that individual carbon-13 atoms in a diamond lattice can be manipulated with extraordinary precision to create stable quantum mechanical memory and a small quantum processor.
New findings not only help us to understand the basic science of how lipid-like peptides interact with lipid molecules, but also may provide new strategies for the encapsulation and the delivery of biological active materials.
University of Alberta research team has combined two fields of study in nanotechnology to create a third field that the researchers believe will lead to revolutionary advances in computer electronics, among many other areas.
Researchers have now developed a new MRI contrast agent using manganese oxide nanoparticles that produces images of the anatomic structures of mouse brain which are as clear as those obtained by histological examination.
