An der Johannes Gutenberg-Universitaet Mainz wurde eine grundlegende Methode entwickelt, um Strukturen auf der Nanoebene sichtbar zu machen. Damit ist die Anordnung von Atomen und Molekuelen in unterschiedlichen Feststoffen von Zement bis hin zu Pharmaka genau festzustellen. Das noch junge Verfahren aus der Elektronenmikroskopie kann die Struktur winzigster Kristalle aufloesen.
A long-term exhibition at the Walt Disney World Resort allows visitors to understand the tiny world of nanotechnology through hands-on experiments that use microscopes to reveal exciting images invisible to the naked eye.
Das im Rahmen der "GoBio"-Initiative des Bundesministeriums fuer Bildung und Forschung in den kommenden drei Jahren mit 3,3 Millionen Euro gefoerderte Forschungsvorhaben "Intelligent siRNA for therapeutic applications" ist ein Projekt, das im neuen interfakultaeren "Jena Center for Soft Matter (JCSM)" der Friedrich-Schiller-Universitaet Jena gestartet ist.
Toyohashi Tech researchers develop a low cost and efficient method for producing electrically conducting composites based on electrostatic adsorption of CNTs onto resin and ceramic particles for applications including enzymes and cosmetics.
A group of researchers funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is among the three research teams nominated for the Deutscher Zukunftspreis in 2011. Dresden-based researchers Professor Karl Leo, Dr. Jan Blochwitz-Nimoth and Dr. Martin Pfeiffer are among those hoping to win this year's Federal President's Award for Technology and Innovation.
The Belgian research centre imec, together with Plextronics and Solvay, present this week at the European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (PVSEC) in Hamburg an organic polymer-based single junction solar cell with 6.9% performance in an innovative inverted device stack.
The Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) puts Singapore into the Guinness Book of World Records with its controllable, molecule-sized gears, which are officially the world's smallest. The gears are up 100,000 times smaller than the width of a single strand of hair and can only be viewed using powerful microscopes.
Chemists at Tufts University's School of Arts and Sciences have developed the world's first single molecule electric motor, a development that may potentially create a new class of devices that could be used in applications ranging from medicine to engineering.
smart has always been a pioneer in matters of urban mobility and with the smart fortwo electric drive the company is showing the direction of development in cities around the world. Together with BASF, the largest automotive supplier in the chemical industry, smart is demonstrating its leading role in the use of forward-looking technologies above and beyond the drive system. The joint concept vehicle smart forvision presented at the 2011 International Motor Show in Frankfurt combines a futuristic design with technologies relating to energy efficiency, lightweight design and temperature management.
