The Universidad Autonoma de Madrid has tested a new protection technique that consists of the electrodeposition of a conductive polymer (polypyrrole) over the surface of a material like copper that is easily oxidized.
A consortium of Piedmont Triad institutions has been awarded a $100,000 planning grant from the North Carolina Biotechnology Center to establish the state's first Center of Innovation, focusing on the emerging field of nanobiotechnology.
What do Americans know about nanotechnology-the technology that promises to ignite the next Industrial Revolution? According to polls, the answer is not much. A federally-supported national network of U.S. scientists, museum professionals, and educators is working to change that.
In a new, highly targetted $100-million program, Alberta's provincial research-funding arm, Alberta Ingenuity, says it is setting out on a path that will significantly change the entire funding landscape across Canada.
Just months after the proposal for a Nano Park was announced, the Department of Science and Technology (DST) of the Centre has made public its plans to establish an Institute of Nano Science and Technology in Bangalore.
A Micro-Vett Fiat Doblò, a regular size 5-seat station wagon, powered by a custom 18kWh Altairnano lithium-ion NanoSafe battery pack, traveled 300 kilometers (186 miles) in one day in an urban delivery circuit.
The latest technology road map for UK micro and nano metrology is now available to download from the case studies section of the CEMMNT (Centre of Excellence in Metrology for Micro and NanoTechnologies) website
Scientists may be one step closer to understanding the atomic forces that cause friction, thanks to a recently published study by researchers from the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Houston and the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory.
The National Science Foundation has awarded an interdisciplinary team of five Stevens Institute of Technology researchers a four-year, $1 million grant to develop 'smart' self-assembling nano-biomaterials that can control whether bacteria will adhere to synthetic surfaces, allowing for carefully targeted control over microscopic processes that occur within the human body.
