A study by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Trieste and Brookhaven National Laboratory has shown a way to precisely design the active elements of a certain class of catalysts, showing which parameters are most critical for improving performance.
In an effort to address the current lack of tools and knowledge in this area, the IRSST developed a method to measure the penetration of nanoparticles through protective glove materials under conditions simulating workplace use.
Stanford University scientists have created the thinnest, most efficient absorber of visible light on record. The nanosize structure, thousands of times thinner than an ordinary sheet of paper, could lower the cost and improve the efficiency of solar cells, according to the scientists.
CNSE acquires and relocates the assets of Silicon Valley solar company SVTC as part of a $100M initiative that will create over 100 high-tech jobs and positions New York as the national leader in accelerating innovative solar technologies.
Imagine a paper-thin computer display you could roll up and carry around easily. The Flexible Electronics and Display Center at Arizona State University is advancing technologies to make that possibility a reality.
The world's largest conference on carbon nanomaterials, NT13, was held June 24-28 at Aalto University. Over 400 scientists and industry experts joined the event to share their knowledge on the fundamental science and applications of carbon nanotubes and graphene.
Evaporation is so common that everybody thinks it is a well understood phenomenon. Appearances can be, however, deceptive. Recently, a new, earlier not predicted mechanism of evaporation was discovered. Experiments and simulations not only confirm its existence, but also indicate that it plays the crucial role in evaporation process in the nanoscale.
Dass Metalle wie Schneeflocken wachsen, klingt ungewöhnlich. Beginnend von einem Metallkern wachsen die Metalle dabei in nanomtergroßen Verästelungen in verschiedene Richtungen und können so ganze Beschichtungen ausbilden.
