An international research team led by Professor Rajeev Ahuja, Uppsala University, has used theoretical calculations to understand a high-pressure structural phase transition in silane which could gives rise to metallization and could even result in superconductivity.
SEMATECH engineers and the industry at large have made significant advances in moving forward the infrastructure that will prepare extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUVL) for cost-effective manufacturing, according to papers presented at the 2008 International EUVL Symposium in Lake Tahoe, California.
Scientists are puzzled by the nanobubbles that can develop on surfaces under water. It should be impossible for them to exist but nevertheless they remain intact for hours. They are something of a mystery, yet it is possible to manipulate the development of these bubbles.
Researchers have accurately identified tools that model the atomic and void structures of a network-forming elemental material. These tools may revolutionize the process of creating new solar panels, flat-panel displays, optical storage media and myriad other technological devices.
Researchers at the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science at Northwestern University recently performed experiments and computations to resolve major existing discrepancies about the scaling of ZnO nanowires elastic properties.
Aktuelle Forschungsergebnisse zur Anwendung von Nanoteilchen in der Biomedizin zeigen, dass gefuellte und nur einige Nanometer grosse Kohlenstoffroehrchen (CNT) fuer kontaktlose Temperaturmessungen an Krebstumoren verwendet werden koennen.
Sharp today announces the U.S. launch of Sharp Solar Academy, a unique environmental education program designed to empower today?s youth with the knowledge to change and improve their environmental future.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded funding to the Georgia Institute of Technology to create a new Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) - The Georgia Tech Laboratory for New Electronic Materials.
The SEMI PV Group today announced the publication of a White Paper that details a strong future vision for the PV industry, presenting strategies the industry can implement now to help ensure a sustainable and profitable growth.
Arrays of flexible microcantilevers - micrometre-thin diving boards - can be used as sensors to detect binding interactions between drugs and their targets, a team of international scientists has shown.
If one could deliver magnetic, cancer-fighting drugs directly to tumors - and if one could keep the drugs in place at the tumor sites with magnets - one could avoid some of the side-effects of giving people cancer drugs that end up distributed through their entire body.
