DARPA is providing $1.4 million to a Phase III research project led by the Argonne National Laboratory to develop high-performance integrated diamond microelectro-mechanical system (MEMS) and complementary metal-oxide-semiconductors devices (CMOS) for radar and mobile communications using an Argonne developed and patented Ultrananocrystalline Diamond film technology.
A new and better method for accelerating bone formation in cases of orthopedic injuries and conditions, such as osteoporosis, fractures and disc disorders, has been developed by Nadav Kimelman at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's Faculty of Dental Medicine.
The high production cost of electricity from silicon-based solar cells has limited the use of the technology. Low cost solar cells with high cell performance are highly desirable and organic solar cells could be the answer.
A device that removes arsenic from groundwater will compete against a nanotechnology-based drug delivery system and eight other novel technology innovations at the 2008 ASME Innovation Showcase (ASME IShow) to be held Oct. 31, in Boston.
A chemistry professor at the University of Connecticut and his graduate students have published new results in Nature Nanotechnology showing how they isolated a particular type of carbon nanotube from a sample and manipulated it in a way that could have broad applicability in drug and gene delivery, electronic devices, and nanotechnology research.
Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC) today joined with researchers at Stanford University to announce multiple ?firsts? demonstrated with carbon nanotubes to produce CMOS-compatible working circuits on a wafer scale.
The 52nd International Electron Ion and Photon Beam Technology and Nanofabrication (EIPBN) Conference announced six Micrograph Contest winners at its annual Conference held this year in Portland, Oregon May 27-30.
Researchers at Purdue University are developing a miniature refrigeration system small enough to fit inside laptops and personal computers, a cooling technology that would boost performance while shrinking the size of computers.
The two universities plan to announce today that they will seek $35 million a year from the Indiana General Assembly in each of the next two years to help fund an alliance aimed at boosting Indiana's life-sciences industry in such areas as pharmaceuticals, bio-energy and nanotechnology.
