Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute of Chemistry have developed an adsorbent-assisted physical vapor deposition method for the fabrication of crystalline organic nanowires with single composition, in which the introduction of adsorbents was proven to be indispensable for improving the uniformity of the products.
To keep up with these fast developments, d&a in collaboration with the
Israel National Nanotechnology Initiative and with support of the
Office of the Chief Scientist at the Israeli Ministry of Industry, Trade and
Labor, are launching the 1st Israeli Nanotech Knowledge Center, a visual
directory of the entire industry.
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.
