INERIS (französisches Institut für Umweltschutz und Umweltgefahren in der Industrie) hat den Aufbau einer in Frankreich einzigartigen Plattform zur Intensivierung der Expertise und der Forschung im Bereich Nanotechnologien beschlossen.
A UT Arlington bioengineering researcher has teamed with a UT Southwestern colleague to develop a nanoparticle drug delivery system that will help stimulate lung growth and function after partial lung removal or destructive lung disease.
The world's smallest tunnels have a width of a few nanometers only. Researchers from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Rice University, USA, have dug such tunnels into graphite samples. This will allow structuring of the interior of materials through self-organization in the nanometer range and tailoring of nanoporous graphite for applications in medicine and battery technology.
By carefully controlling the shape of water droplets with an ultraviolet laser, a team of researchers from Australia and France has found a way to coax silica nanoparticles to self-assemble into much more highly uniform silica wires.
There are more than 50 companies in Australia involved in nanotechnology-related business activities. In addition, there are 74 nanotechnology and nanoscience-related research and community organizations. Among universities, there are 19 academic nanotechnology degree programs.
New technologies have sometimes had very harmful effects, but in many cases the early warning signs have been suppressed or ignored. The second volume of Late Lessons from Early Warnings investigates specific cases where danger signals have gone unheeded, in some cases leading to deaths, illness and environmental destruction.
Forscher des Center for Nanointegration (CENIDE) der Universität Duisburg-Essen haben eine Technologie entwickelt, Bewegungen einzelner Atome und Moleküle in Echtzeit nachzuverfolgen. Wer ganz still ist, kann die Bewegung der Moleküle sogar hören.
