Imec announced today that it has integrated an ultra-thin, flexible chip with bendable and stretchable interconnects into a package that adapts dynamically to curving and bending surfaces. The resulting circuitry can be embedded in medical and lifestyle applications where user comfort and unobtrusiveness is key, such as wearable health monitors or smart clothing.
Using ultra-low input power densities, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have demonstrated for the first time how low-power 'optical nanotweezers' can be used to trap, manipulate, and probe nanoparticles, including fragile biological samples.
Johns Hopkins researchers report they are one step closer to having a drug-delivery system flexible enough to overcome some key challenges posed by brain cancer and perhaps other maladies affecting that organ.
Diatoms, tiny marine life forms that have been around since the dinosaurs, could finally make biofuel production from algae truly cost-effective - because they can simultaneously produce other valuable products such as semiconductors, biomedical products and even health foods.
A new startup company at UC Davis aims to bring you a better shave through semiconductor manufacturing technology. Nano-Sharp Inc. plans to use silicon wafers to make razor blades and surgical tools far more cheaply than current silicon or ceramic blades.
Stanford University's Precourt Institute for Energy (PIE), TomKat Center for Sustainable Energy and Precourt Energy Efficiency Center (PEEC) have awarded nine faculty seed grants totaling $2.2 million for promising new research in clean technology and energy efficiency.
National University of Singapore researchers at the Faculty of Engineering's Department of Bioengineering have discovered a new technology that paves the way for a new safe and non-invasive method of treating deep cancer.
ACIN 2013 is an international symposium on Advanced Complex Inorganic Nanomaterials jointly organized by the University of Namur and the Universite Catholique de Louvain. The event will take place from July 14 to 19, 2013 in Namur, Belgium.
