The Organic/Inorganic Hybrid Photovoltaics Group of the NIMS, Global Research Center for Environment and Energy based on Nanomaterials Science (GREEN), elucidated the relationship between the photocurrent and the peculiar changes in the absorption structure occurring in the vicinity of the molecular-electrode interface in dye-sensitized solar cells, by conducting a soft X-ray radiation experiment.
Physikern der Uni Jena um Prof. Szameit und Prof. Dr. Stefan Nolte ist es jetzt mit einem internationalen Team gelungen, das Verhalten von Elektronen in Graphen umfassend zu charakterisieren. Die Forscher stellen experimentelle Daten vor, anhand derer sich die elektronischen Eigenschaften insbesondere in den Randstrukturen des Graphen-Kristalls exakt simulieren lassen.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) issued new recommendations for controlling worker exposures to engineered nanomaterials during the manufacture and industrial use of those materials.
Researchers created a novel 'nanogrid', a large net consisting of metal grids made of a copper tungsten oxide, that, when activated by sunlight, can break down oil from a spill, leaving only biodegradable compounds behind.
Nanotechnology researchers from the NIST Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST) and the Republic of Korea's national metrology institute - the Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science (KRISS) - have recently developed a unique nanoscale measurement technique and used it to observe structural disorder in graphene that is fabricated on a silicon carbide substrate.
Arizona State University is teaming up with seven other research universities to establish a new Science and Technology Center (STC), sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF), with an initial five-year, $25-million grant (extendable for another five years).
Scientists have moved a step closer to creating custom medical treatment plans based on a patient's DNA, pinpointing the root of a patient's illness and making sure treatment will not cause a fatal allergic reaction.
Using inexpensive materials configured and tuned to capture microwave signals, researchers at Duke University's Pratt School of Engineering have designed a power-harvesting device with efficiency similar to that of modern solar panels.
