A research group at the NIMS International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA) succeeded in the development of band diagram measurement system in atmospheric condition for organic semiconductor materials such as organic light emitting device (OLED).
A senior official of Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC) underlined that due to the existence of a large number of Iranian experts and active bodies in the field of nanotechnology, the growth of the new science is guaranteed in the country.
Engineering faculty and students at the University of Colorado Boulder have produced the first experimental results showing that atomically thin graphene membranes with tiny pores can effectively and efficiently separate gas molecules through size-selective sieving.
A University of Michigan biophysical chemist and his colleagues have discovered the smallest and fastest-known molecular switches made of RNA, the chemical cousin of DNA. The researchers say these rare, fleeting structures are prime targets for the development of new antiviral and antibiotic drugs.
Forscher am INM - Leibniz-Institut für Neue Materialien in Saarbrücken haben über ein ungewöhnliches Verfahren eine Beschichtung entwickelt, die sich verhält sich wie eine Keramik und dabei trotzdem biegsam bleibt.
An international team of researchers has found at the free electron laser FLASH a surprising effect that leads in ferromagnetic materials to a spatially varying magnetization manipulation on an ultrafast timescale.
Imec and its partners in the Solliance initiative announce that they have launched, together with the Institute of Materials Research of the University of Hasselt (IMO), the Solar Flare Interreg Project.
Stretching a layer of silicon can build up internal mechanical strain which can considerably improve its electronic properties. With strained silicon, one can, for example, build faster and less power-consuming microprocessors.
At the 2012 International Symposium on Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography, industry and research experts named the timely development of a source suited for high-volume manufacturing as the most critical issue.
