A new nanotechnology material developed at Michigan State University has enabled XG Sciences Inc., a startup company headquartered in East Lansing, to be named a winner in the third annual Nanotech Briefs Nano 50 Awards program.
Two engineers at the University of California, Riverside are part of a binational team that has found semiconducting nanotubes produced by living bacteria - a discovery that could help in the creation of a new generation of nanoelectronic devices.
The final version of the Technology Roadmap for Productive Nanosystems has been released. This marks the completion of the first broad, multidisciplinary effort to explore how current laboratory techniques for atomically precise fabrication can be extended, step by step, toward increasingly advanced products and capabilities.
In his vision talk at the valedictory function of Bangalore Nano 2007, Prof. C.N.R. Rao urged the Government to give greater freedom for Scientists and Researchers of the country to continue their work in the institutions as researchers and at the same time explore new business opportunities through private ventures.
It's a rare case of all light and no heat: A new study reports that a laser can be used to switch a film of vanadium dioxide back and forth between reflective and transparent states without heating or cooling it.
What appear under an atomic force microscope to be tiny rings with little bits missing are actually nanoscopic rings made of double-stranded DNA with a little gap in the form of a short single-stranded fragment.
