Flexible electronics, now being printed, is the future of new applications in sensors, displays, power and lighting according to experts gathered at the FlexTech Alliance 2012 Flexible Electronics and Displays Conference and Exhibition.
Scientists have developed a new kind of tiny motor that can propel itself through acidic environments, such as the human stomach, without any external energy source, opening the way to a variety of medical and industrial applications.
Scientists are reporting development of a new form of buckypaper, which eliminates a major drawback of these sheets of carbon nanotubes, with potential uses ranging from body armor to next-generation batteries.
Wissenschaftsjournalist Niels Boeing wird im Rahmen des NanoWebTalks der Nanostart AG zum Thema "Nanotechnologie - Risiken und (mediale) Nebenwirkungen" am 15. Februar 2012 um 17:00 Uhr live im Web zu sehen und zu hoeren sein.
NT-MDT Corporation has selected the winners of the ProIMAGE contest for 2011. The ProIMAGE contest is an annual Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) and Scanning Probe Microscope (SPM) image competition, held by NT-MDT.
Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute in California and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology have developed a "biological computer" made entirely from biomolecules that is capable of deciphering images encrypted on DNA chips. Although DNA has been used for encryption in the past, this is the first experimental demonstration of a molecular cryptosystem of images based on DNA computing.
Researchers have learned how to improve the performance of sensors that use tiny vibrating microcantilevers to detect chemical and biological agents for applications from national security to food processing.
