The World Health Organization proposes new guidelines to policy makers and professionals in the field of occupational health and safety with recommendations on how best to protect workers from the potential risks of manufactured nanomaterials.
Researchers calculated the overall electron structure of the vacancy region of a crystal lattice through the unprecedented use of a hybrid functional method, which yielded results compatible with experimental data.
Scientists found out the mathematical method to calculate the temperature at which single walled carbon nanotubes become superconductors and developed a way to increase it thus opening new prospects for superconductive materials applications.
Researchers have experimentally demonstrated how to harness a property called negative capacitance for a new type of transistor that could reduce power consumption, validating a theory proposed in 2008.
A new study describes processes from the field of biology that utilize biofilms as ?construction workers? to create structural templates for new materials that possess the properties of natural materials.
