On the 1-2 October leading industrial and academic experts, national authorities, and European Commission representatives will meet for the 2013 European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine (ETPN) Annual Event and General Assembly.
Forschende der Universität Basel haben ein intelligentes Nanoträgersystem auf Basis von Peptiden entwickelt. Aufgrund ihres besonderen Aufbaus organisieren sich diese Peptide in Wasser selbst zu etwa 200 Nanometer grossen sphärischen Kügelchen. Dieses neue Nanoträgersystem kann für den Transport und Schutz unterschiedlicher Gastmoleküle eingesetzt werden - denkbar ist insbesondere ein Einsatz in der Gentherapie.
Clay, an abundant and cheap natural material, is a key ingredient in a supercapacitor that can operate at very high temperatures, according to Rice University researchers who have developed such a device.
An international group of researchers from the University of Minnesota, Argonne National Laboratory and Seoul National University have discovered a groundbreaking technique in manufacturing nanostructures that has the potential to make electrical and optical devices smaller and better than ever before.
A research collaboration between the University of Pennsylvania and Duke University has shown a new a way to design transparent conductors using metal nanowires that could enable less expensive - and flexible - touchscreens.
Carlo Segre, Duchossois Leadership Professor of Physics at Illinois Institute of Technology, has received a $3.4 million award from the U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA-E) to develop a breakthrough battery technology that may more than double the current range of electric vehicles, increase safety, reduce costs and simplify recharging.
A team of researchers from the University of California, Riverside's Bourns College of Engineering have solved a problem that previously presented a serious hurdle for the use of graphene in electronic devices.
Researchers from the universities in Mainz, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Ulm have proposed a new platform for quantum simulation. In a theoretical paper, they show that a combined system of ultracold trapped ions and fermionic atoms could be used to emulate solid state physics.
A collaboration between biotechnology company Cytomatrix;,Geelong based engineering firm, Austeng, and Deakin University will develop a world-first pilot manufacturing plant for the production of short nanofibres.
Civil engineering postgraduate student studying carbon nanotubes, Kate McDonell, will represent the University of Sydney in the Trans-Tasman Three-minute Thesis (3MT) competition later this year after winning the University's finals of the competition.
