Almost 100 years after the initial discovery, a team of scientists at the University of Alberta and the National Institute for Nanotechnology in Edmonton have harnessed the Barkhausen Effect as a new kind of high-resolution microscopy for the insides of magnetic materials.
The center will focus on substantially enhancing the information processing power and storage capacity of integrated circuits and related systems, which is critical in maintaining reliability as devices continue to shrink and improve in energy efficiency.
How can pharmaceuticals be safely carried through the acidic environment of the stomach and into the intestines? A team of Canadian and Australian researchers has developed a novel nanotransporter that consists of porous particles of silicon dioxide stabilized with a whey protein.
A team of researchers has shown that so-called block copolymer stars - that means polymers that consist of two different blocks and they are chemically anchored on a common point - have a robust and flexible architecture and they possess the ability to self-assemble at different levels.
Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) today announced that $194 million will be dedicated during the next five years to six new university microelectronics research centers to support the continued growth and leadership of the U.S. semiconductor industry.
A team of UCLA scientists has been awarded a prestigious $1 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation for research aimed at reshaping and improving how images and large data sets are collected and analyzed in science, engineering, medicine and other fields.
An assistant professor at the University of California, Riverside's Bourns College of Engineering is using the teeth of a marine snail found off the coast of California to create less costly and more efficient nanoscale materials to improve solar cells and lithium-ion batteries.
A nanoscale coating that's at least 95 percent air repels the broadest range of liquids of any material in its class, causing them to bounce off the treated surface, according to the University of Michigan engineering researchers who developed it.
In a case of the Goldilocks story retold at the molecular level, scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory and Northwestern University have discovered a new path to the development of more stable and efficient catalysts.
