Researchers at MIT have come up with a solution that may further reduce the energy needed for copper to convert carbon dioxide, while also making the metal much more stable. The group has engineered tiny nanoparticles of copper mixed with gold, which is resistant to corrosion and oxidation.
The High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK), an Inter-University Research Institute Corporation, recently joined to TIA-nano as a new core institute, in addition to the existing core institutes, the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), and the University of Tsukuba.
The German Ministry of the Environment, Nature Protection and Nuclear Safety (BMU) has published a new report "Assessment tools for nanomaterials" ("Instrumente zur Bewertung von Nanomaterialien") which summarizes the discussion and results of the German NanoCommission's work and the Stakeholder Dialogue "Risk management in the nano world".
The annual printed electronics award winners were announced at the IDTechEx Awards Dinner in Berlin, Germany on April 3rd. The awards recognize outstanding progress in the development and commercialization of printed electronics, an industry that produces a huge amount of technical innovation which will be used in many products.
The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) announced that a research team from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering has developed a technology that enables scientists and engineers to observe processes occurring in liquid media on the smallest possible scale which is less than a nanometer.
Researchers at the University of Central Florida have developed a novel technique that may give doctors a faster and more sensitive tool to detect pathogens associated with inflammatory bowel disease, including Crohn's disease.
Researchers successfully measured the exact status of the rapidly changing Helium atom using an atto second pulse. Thanks to this discovery, many ultrafast phenomena in nature can now be precisely measured.
The problem with commercializing graphene that is synthesized onto metals over a wide area is that it can not be separated from the metal. However, a groundbreaking separation technology which is both cheap and environment friendly has been developed.
A new study from Massachusetts General Hospital researchers finds that normalizing blood vessels within tumors, which improves the delivery of standard chemotherapy drugs, can block the delivery of larger nanotherapy molecules.
