When the technical sciences meet world-famous Danish design, you get - the colour white. Designers are working with scientists to develop a method for creating white aluminium surfaces USING nanopores. Something which has never been achieved before, but which designers the world over have been hankering after for a very long time.
The 2014 Kavli Prize in Nanoscience is shared between Thomas W. Ebbesen, Universite Louis Pasteur, Universite de Strasbourg, France, Stefan W. Hell, Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Germany, and Sir John B. Pendry, Imperial College London, UK.
This report studies the number of nanotechnology articles published in ISI-indexed journals, and investigates the ascending or descending trend of the publication of such articles in ISI-indexed journals. The report also lists conferences in which the highest number of nanotechnology articles have been presented.
This inaugural event - taking place September 15-16, 2014 in Berkeley, California - will bring together the scientific, commercial and investment communities to forge new partnerships and exchange ideas in pursuit of the successful development and commercialization of graphene.
When crude oil is refined to fuels and chemicals, help is at hand - in the form of so-called catalysts. Scientists now provide a reference parameter for the performance of an important class of catalysts for petrochemical production.
Biomedical engineering researchers have developed daisy-shaped, nanoscale structures that are made predominantly of anti-cancer drugs and are capable of introducing a 'cocktail' of multiple drugs into cancer cells.
In a recent study, the desorption of oxygen molecules from a silver surface was successfully visualized for the first time. The effects account for the shortcomings of conventional models of desorption.
