Nanyang Technological University (NTU) announced that it is investing close to $3 million over three years to set up a new research centre that will pioneer the development of such solar cells of the future, as well as the expertise to harness these new clean energy sources effectively and in commercially viable ways.
The Federal Office of Public Health FOPH and Federal Office for the Environment FOEN launched the introductory phase in December 2008. The precautionary matrix was revised on the basis of users' experience at the beginning of 2010. It now has been updated again.
Hailed as the new "wonder material," graphene is being tapped by an international research team to help overcome issues associated with increasing the storage density and speed of electronic memory devices.
Electronic circuitry composed of nanowires can now be fitted to a surface of almost any shape on an object made of virtually any material, using a new approach to fabrication and transfer of nanowire electronics developed by Stanford researchers.
The conference will bring together the best nanotechnologists with end-users. The participants have opportunity to discuss their questions with a large number of experts and to expand their network with start-up companies as well as successful nanotechnology-users.
Researchers at Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona have developed an electronic tongue which can identify different types of cava wines, thanks to a combination of sensor systems and advanced mathematical procedures.
Wissenschaftler des Helmholtz-Zentrums Dresden-Rossendorf koennen Quantenpunkte aus Indiumarsenid auf Silizium-Wafern erzeugen. Das Besondere: Sie verwenden dabei Verfahren, die schon jetzt in der Halbleiterfertigung eingesetzt werden.
Scientists at the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN), the world's first bioengineering and nanotechnology research institute, have developed a new genetic engineering technique that promises safer stem cell therapy for cancer patients.
