n the not-so-distant future, plastics could be more durable and rubbers could be more - well ? rubbery thanks to a novel new approach to polymer synthesis discovered by Texas Tech University organic chemists.
Suite 101 has published an article, by Bernard P. Nelson, titled 'Home Solar Energy Panels'. The article provides information about solar energy improvements such as thin film solar panels, and solar nano antennas that work at night.
A team of researchers has shed more light on the problem of predicting the dynamics of atomic reactions during a collision by performing collision experiments with slow beams of particles called antiprotons.
The Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing Initiative's (SNNI) 4th annual conference will focus on cutting edge research in greener nanomaterials design and production. This event takes place on March 2-3, 2009 in Eugene, Oregon.
San Diego professors who are developing technologies that will fuel the continued growth of the region's 'clean tech cluster' recently received a financial boost through the 2008 Clean Tech Innovation Challenge.
tinytechjobs, the premier job board dedicated to jobs in tiny technology, including careers in MEMS, nanotechnology, microtechnology, and information technology, announced today the celebration of its fifth anniversary in the small tech jobs space.
The Koerber European Science Award for 2009, worth 750,000 euros in prize money, goes to Andre Geim. The Dutch physicist has distinguished himself through his pioneering studies in the field of two-dimensional carbon crystals.
Research on a novel organic photovoltaic design presented by researchers at the Advanced Technology Institute (ATI) at the University of Surrey has won first prize in the recently concluded UK NanoForum 2008, jointly organised by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and UK Trade and Investment.
Chemists at the University of Liverpool working with IOTA NanoSolutions have developed a new technology to produce nanoparticles of insoluble drugs that mimic the behaviour and the effectiveness of dissolved drugs.
Research that could lead to brighter LCD screens, more efficient solar panels, improved biomedical imaging and high-tech security sensors has won the University of Melbourne's Chancellor's Prize for Excellence in PhD.
