A researcher at Arizona State University's Biodesign Institute has found a clever way to measure catalytical reactions of single nanoparticles and multiple particles printed in arrays, which will help characterize and improve existing nanoparticle catalysts, and advance the search for new ones.
A joint research group consisting of the Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute (SPring-8), Kyoto University, and the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) succeeded in fabricating a crystalline thin film with a film thickness of nanometer order, in which molecules of a 3-dimensionally strong porous coordination polymer (PCP) are arranged (oriented) in a designated direction, and demonstrated that this thin film has a reversible gas adsorption/desorption reaction function.
The First International Symposium on Nanomedicine in Drug Delivery and Cancer Diagnosis, held at the University of Delaware from Aug. 16-17, not only enabled researchers to share their latest findings but also provided a venue to launch new partnerships.
Last week, NT-MDT hosted the webinar "AFM imaging of DNA related structures". The speaker of the webinar was noted scientist Dr. Alexander Kotlyar, Professor of Tel Aviv University, Israel. The webinar is now available in a set of three videos
Holomic LLC, a startup company seeking to commercialize a groundbreaking technology developed at UCLA that turns simple cell phones into powerful microscopes has joined UCLA's on-campus technology incubator program at the California NanoSystems Institute.
When twins are forced to share, it can put a significant strain on their relationship. While this observation is perhaps unsurprising in the behavior of children, it is less obvious when it comes to nanoparticles.
By manipulating different types of light, including UV and visible light, researchers are able to alter the critical temperatures of superconducting materials. This finding adds to a growing toolbox for controlling and improving the technology.
The European Commission's Expert Advisory Group on nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new production technologies published five orientation papers with recommendations on how innovation in the industrial technology sectors could be better supported in the future, for instance, with Horizon 2020.
Dr. Twan Lammers von der RWTH Aachen erhält den vom Europäischen Forschungsrat (ERC) vergebenen Starting Grant für sein Forschungsvorhaben "Neoadjuvant Nanomedicines for vascular Normalization" (NeoNaNo).
With laser beams, molecules can be fixed at exactly the right position in a three dimensional material. The new method developed at the Vienna University of Technology can be used to grow biological tissue or to create micro sensors.
The NIMS International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA) developed a nanostructured sheets film which is capable of introducing designated genes into animal cells, and demonstrated the safety and efficacy of the new nanosheets film as a substrate for reverse gene transfection.
Researchers have managed to discover a meaningful model for performance of biomolecules in magnetic fields by studying the effects of magnetic nanoparticles on the enzyme activity of Flavobacterium, modified with magnetic nanoparticles.
To control the three-dimensional shape of engineered tissue, researchers grow cells on tiny, sponge-like scaffolds. These devices can be implanted into patients or used in the lab to study tissue responses to potential drugs.
