We've all worried about the charge on our smartphone or laptop running down when we have no access to an electrical outlet. But new technology developed by researchers at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science could finally help solve the problem.
A new spin on an old technology will give scientists and manufacturers the ability to significantly increase their production of nanofibers, according to researchers at North Carolina State University.
On March 10-11, 2011 The US and EU jointly held a workshop to engage in an active discussion about environmental, health, and safety questions for nano-enabled products; encourage joint programs of work that would leverage resources; establish communities of practice, including identificaiton of key points of contact /interest groups/themes between key US and EU researchers and key US and EU funding sources. The presentations from this workshop are now available online.
Nature knows two opposite types of solids: one that emerges upon compression from a liquid and a second that appears if the pressure on a liquid is reduced. While the former is typical for substances in our everyday life the latter occurs for example in a dense quantum liquid of electrons (such as in metals) or ions (in exotic white dwarf or neutron stars). Now it has been shown that there exists yet a third form of matter that inherits both of these properties.
Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA), the leading Democratic appropriator for scientific research, today announced the award of $978,242 from the National Science Foundation for three research grants - including two dealing with nanotechnology - for projects at the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University
A new form of low-cost solar cell that can be printed onto plastic and metal is a step closer to production after the State and Federal Governments announced a boost in funding for the ongoing research project.
Prof. Fernando Patolsky and Dr. Michael Ioffe of Tel Aviv University's Sackler Faculty of Exact Sciences have developed an easy-to-use sensor that, when dipped into a cocktail, will instantly detect the presence of a date rape drug.
The Commercialization of Micro-Nano Systems (COMS) conference is presented by the Micro and Nanotechnology Commercialization Education Foundation (MANCEF). It brings together leaders from around the globe, across many industry sectors, to focus not just on science and technology - but on solutions in Small Tech commercialization.
Following the successful completion of a two-year evaluation phase, the University of Ulm, the Heidelberg-based company CEOS GmbH and Carl Zeiss Nano Technology Systems have signed an agreement to embark on the next phase of the SALVE project.
A national team of experts, led by a Case Western Reserve University researcher, has received a multi-million-dollar grant to bring unrivaled qualities found in one- and two-dimensional nanomaterials into three dimensions.
Research involving scientists from The University of Nottingham is pioneering a new method of studying and making molecules. The work could pave the way for the production of nanomaterials for use in a new generation of computers and data storage devices that are faster, smaller and more powerful.
