Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has issued a Section 404 permit for the Marcy Nanocenter site, enabling the next phase of the Nano Utica initiative. This includes the construction of a 450 MM enabled wafer fabrication campus.
The discovery of a new material combination that could lead to a more efficient approach to computer memory and logic is the first promising indication that it may be possible to build a practical technology with a novel material known as a 'topological insulator'. The research team's results show that such a scheme can be 10 times more efficient for controlling magnetic memory or logic than any other combination of materials measured to date.
A UCF spinout company is at the forefront of perfecting specialized nanotechnology designed to extend the longevity of batteries and superconductors. Batteries will be lighter, stay charged longer and need to be replaced less frequently - and that's a win for our smart phones and our environment.
The NNCO is now accepting questions related to the 'Progress Review on the Coordinated Implementation of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) 2011 Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Strategy'
Security forces worldwide rely on sophisticated equipment, trained personnel, and detection dogs to safeguard airports and other public areas against terrorist attacks. A revolutionary new electronic chip with nano-sized chemical sensors is about to make their job much easier.
Studies on fluid flow at the molecular level have uncovered important data about fluid's unique behavior, and has led to the development of new technologies that can potentially solve some of the world's most pressing issues.
The process uses a technique called high-resolution electron microscopy to monitor changes in the catalyst structure during the catalytic process. Unlike conventional electron microscopy, which has considerable pressure and temperature limitations, this new technique allows scientists to view these reactions under real-life conditions.
The establishment of the University of the Western Cape's Centre for Green Nanotechnology was made a reality through a positive partnership between the University of Missouri (UM) and UWC that has spanned approximately 30 years.
DNA has the nasty habit of getting tangled and forming knots. Scientists study these knots to understand their function and learn how to disentangle them. Researchers have now devised and tested a method based on the application of electric fields and optical tweezers.
Researchers have created a vaccine for dust-mite allergies. In lab tests and animal trials, the nano-sized vaccine package was readily absorbed by immune cells and dramatically lowered allergic responses.
