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.
Electronic devices and their components are getting smaller and smaller. Tomi Ruokola has researched in his doctoral dissertation for the Department of Applied Physics in Aalto University how the heat generated by electronic components could be controlled and utilised.
Materialwissenschaftlern der Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena ist es gelungen, Nanostrukturen auf der Oberfläche von ultra-dünnen Filmen zu erzeugen und mittels verschiedener Messtechniken nachzuweisen.
First place in an EU competitive call on "Unconventional Computing" was awarded to a collaborative proposal coordinated by Prof. John McCaskill from the RUB Faculty of Chemistry and Biochemistry. The project MICREAgents plans to build autonomous self-assembling electronic microreagents that are almost as small as cells.
