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.
Researchers used a simple and eco-friendly method to produce homogenous zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles with various applications in medical industries due to their photocatalytic and antibacterial properties.
A team of material scientists, chemical engineers and physicists from the University of Pennsylvania has made another advance in their effort to use liquid crystals as a medium for assembling structures.
