An international team of physicists has developed a method for taking ultrafast "sonograms" that can track the structural changes that take place within solid materials in trillionth-of-a-second intervals as they go through an important physical process called a phase transition.
Global technology leaders will descend upon North Carolina for the Nanotech Commercialization Conference (NCC), hosted by the Center of Innovation for Nanobiotechnology (COIN), the NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) and the North Carolina Office of Science and Technology. Corporate, investor, start-up and academic leaders will all be in attendance at this cutting edge event in Durham, NC, April 4th-5th, 2012.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) invites applications from small businesses to conduct innovative research in three high-priority areas, including studies relating to the occupational health and safety aspects of nanotechnology.
Micro- and nanodroplets flowing inside barely visible channels may serve as miniature chemical reactors. The research in this modern area of contemporary chemistry can be pursued more effectively with a new laboratory that has just opened at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw.
A method for manipulating the charge of nitrogen vacancy-centres in diamond - which are thought to be important areas in the creation of qubits in quantum computers - is reported in Nature Communications this week.
IBM scientists today will report on a prototype optical chipset, dubbed "Holey Optochip", that is the first parallel optical transceiver to transfer one trillion bits - one terabit - of information per second.
Detaillierte Studien der so genannten Resonanzfluoreszenz sind ein Forschungsfeld des Teams von Prof. Peter Michler am Institut fuer Halbleiteroptik und Funktionelle Grenzflaechen der Uni Stuttgart, das hierzu das Halbleitersystem Indium-Gallium-Arsenid untersucht.
Professor Mariana Henriques, University of Minho, and her colleagues hope to test silver nanoparticles in mouthwash and dentures as a potential preventative measure against yeast infections caused by Candida albicans and Candida glabrata.
