Top scientists and researchers in the fields of materials science and corrosion are turning to nanoscience/nanotechnology in a continuous effort to be more clear and precise in explaining natural phenomena at the macromolecular level.
In news that is not boding well for the future of nanomaterial safety testing, Environmental Science & Technology today reports that the chemical industry fails to deliver on its promise to identify chemical hazards.
Despite its significant market expectations for a vast area of applications, many microsystems (MST, MEMS) still face key manufacturing challenges in guaranteeing stability, robustness and associated reliability within the target working environment.
A website being dubbed the YouTube for scientists has been launched, raising new hopes of bringing science closer to the people. The initiative has three high-profile backers: the Public Library of Science; the US' National Science Foundation and the San Diego Supercomputer Center.
An innovative technique for producing very small, conductive nano-wires on silicon chips. The technique can produce wires that are 5,000 times longer than they are wide and meet the need for connecting ever-smaller electronic components.
