Rice University researchers have developed a noninvasive technology that accurately detects low levels of malaria infection through the skin in seconds with a laser scanner. The 'vapor nanobubble' technology requires no dyes or diagnostic chemicals, and there is no need to draw blood.
The new book 'Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials in the Treatment of Life-threatening Diseases' takes a scientific approach to nanotechnology and nanomaterials applications in medicine, while also explaining the core biological principles for an audience of biomedical engineers, materials scientists, pharmacologists, and medical diagnostic technicians.
Researchers have developed a new Magnetoresistive Random Access Memory (MRAM) technology that will boost information storage in electronic systems. The innovative technology will drastically increase storage space and enhance memory which will ensure that fresh data stays intact, even in the case of a power failure.
Nanotechnology has many potential impacts on cancer research. In particular, this technology can help facilitate research and improve molecular imaging, early detection, prevention, and treatment of cancer.
Materials engineering experts studied the mechanism to increase the stability of hydroxyapatite nanoparticles' suspension by using triethanolamine (TEA) additive, its effect on the electrophoretic deposition process and the properties of the obtained coatings.
This is the first book about the instrumentation and experimental methodology of photo? and electroluminescent properties of nanomaterials to systematically document the historical and current status in the field.
The Australian Research Council (ARC) has announced the funding for its flagship research program, the ARC Centres of Excellence. One of only 12 centres funded from a starting field of 103, the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics brings together leading researchers from the University of Adelaide, Macquarie University and RMIT University for a seven-year initial funding period.
A research group consisting of members from Chuo University, NIMS and Tohoku University succeeded for the first time in the world in fabricating a three-dimensional structure of a quasicrystal composed of a single element.
Researchers at EMSL took advantage of advanced instrumental capabilities, a specially designed experimental cell and theoretical modeling to successfully deduce the how molecules of carboxylic acid - a common organic acid found in nature - bind to ceria nanoparticle surfaces.
By creating an optical soliton in a microresonator, EPFL scientists have found a new light source that could serve in geo-navigation, telecommunications, spectroscopy and the hunt for new Earth-like planets.
