In a new position paper, BEUC outlines which elements such a definition should contain in order to effectively protect consumers from unknown hazards that may be related to cosmetic products which use new nanomaterials.
The imaging of cellular events in high resolution is the dream of many life scientists. A European consortium initiated a collective effort to push the current limits of high-resolution imaging techniques for the study of biological systems.
Forscher des Leibniz-Instituts für Festkörper- und Werkstoffforschung Dresden (IFW) und der Technischen Universität Chemnitz haben die ersten druckbaren Sensoren entwickelt, die auf dem Riesenmagnetowiderstand beruhen. Damit wächst die Palette der druckbaren elektronischen Bauteile um eine weitere wichtige Komponente.
Johns Hopkins researchers have created a synthetic protein that, when activated by ultraviolet light, can guide doctors to places within the body where cancer, arthritis and other serious medical disorders can be detected.
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that the U.S. Photovoltaic Consortium (PVMC) and Ceres Technologies, a Hudson Valley-based nanotechnology manufacturer, have launched a $20 million partnership in which Ceres will become one of the first official suppliers of manufacturing equipment to the PVMC.
Integrated circuits, which are in everything from coffeemakers to computers and are patterned from perfectly crystalline silicon, are quite thin -- but Cornell researchers think they can push thin-film boundaries to the single-atom level.
Solar panels, like those commonly perched atop house roofs or in sun-drenched fields, quietly harvesting the sun's radiant energy, are one of the standard-bearers of the green energy movement. But could they be better - more efficient, durable and affordable? That's what engineers from Drexel University and The University of Pennsylvania are trying to find out, with the aid of a little nanotechnology and a lot of mathematical modeling.
