A new paper by the Rice lab of Angel Martí, an assistant professor of chemistry and bioengineering, offers a methodology to optimize the sensitivity of photoluminescent probes using time-resolved spectroscopy.
Suppressing rejection of implants is a well known goal in medicine. EU-funded researchers sought to raise the bar by developing natural coatings that encourage cell activity and colonisation of implants at the same time.
A collaboration of researchers led by a scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has developed a first-of-its-kind model for providing a comprehensive description of the way in which molecular bonds form and rupture.
Researchers from the NIST Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology have demonstrated a low-noise device for changing the wavelength of light using nanofabricated waveguides created on a silicon-based platform using standard planar fabrication technology.
A refined method developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for measuring nanometer-sized objects may help computer manufacturers more effectively size up the myriad tiny switches packed onto chips' surfaces.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued a new nanoscale reference material for use in a wide range of environmental, health and safety studies of industrial nanomaterials. The new NIST reference material is a sample of commercial titanium dioxide powder commonly known as P25.
Researchers from CIC nanoGUNE, in collaboration with the University of Munich and the German company Neaspec GmbH, manufacturing leader of near field optic microscope equipment, have developed a new technique which allows for the identification of the chemical composition of materials with nanometric resolution.
Researchers advanced the frontiers of chemical separation technology. The increased specificity and selectivity regarding identification of biologically relevant molecules should have important impact on biomedicine and environmental science in particular.
Machines with sliding and rolling parts are virtually ubiquitous. EU funding enabled researchers to develop high-performing coatings and lubricants based on a novel new class of molecules to significantly reduce wear.
The World Gold Council continually monitors the research and development landscape with a view to identifying and supporting promising new applications for gold. Recent years have seen the rise of nanotechnology, which has helped fuel a surge in gold-based research.
The three-year grant, under the GOALI (Grant Opportunities for Academic Liaison with Industry) program, will support the engineering of nanoparticles of silver suitable for screen-printing onto photovoltaic solar panels.
