Sens. John Kerry and Olympia Snowe this week introduced the National Nanotechnology Initiative Amendments Act of 2008. The legislation will toughen the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) by increasing its commitment to environmental health and safety research.
Fibre imprinting nanotechnology developed at the MacDiarmid Institute of Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology at the University of Canterbury is going to get rugby fans closer than ever to the All Blacks. The names of as many as 100,000 fans are to be printed onto a single thread which will be sewn into the Silver Fern on a special edition jersey in a campaign organised by All Blacks sponsor adidas.
Ein neuartiges Roentgenmikroskop mit Superaufloesung, das von einem Forscherteam des Paul Scherrer Instituts (PSI) und der ETH Lausanne (EPFL) in der Schweiz entwickelt wurde, kombiniert die hohe Durchdringungsleistung von Roentgenstrahlen mit einer hohen bildlichen Aufloesung und ermoeglicht es somit erstmals, Licht auf die detaillierten inneren Strukturen von Halbleiterbauelementen oder Zellen zu werfen.
Nanoparticle research by Professor Sanku Mallik and his group at North Dakota State University, Fargo, appears in the July issue of the Review of Ophthalmology in the article 'Nanoparticles: Into the New Frontier.'
A novel super-resolution X-ray microscope developed by a team of researchers from the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) and EPFL in Switzerland combines the high penetration power of x-rays with high spatial resolution, making it possible for the first time to shed light on the detailed interior composition of semiconductor devices and cellular structures.
Nanoparticle bombs to kill cancer, molecular-sized bridges to repair damaged hearts, and scarless surgery techniques are now on the frontier of medical innovations in California with the new Institute leading the way.
Prof. Vasco Teixeira's group at the University of Minho in Portugal is looking for 2 young researchers (PhD students) with expertise and experience in the development of nanostructured materials for integration in nano-biosensors that are under development within a nanotechnology project in progress at their research center.
TERAMAGSTOR - Terabit Magnetic Storage Technologies - ist ein neues EU-Projekt dessen Ziel es ist, die Speicherdichte von Festplatten weiter zu erhoehen und die erste Festplatte mit einer Speicherdichte von einem Terabit pro Quadratinch zu entwickeln.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded a $1.2 million grant to an interdisciplinary team of Harvard University researchers to study surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) for the first phase of a potential three-year effort.
Nature, in the simple form of a tree canopy, appears to provide keen insights into the best way to design complex systems to move substances from one place to another, an essential ingredient in the development of novel 'smart' materials.
