Join friends old and new this summer at Google's Mountain View headquarters in Silicon Valley as the Foresight Institute explores the future of nanotechnology with a rockstar lineup of nanotech experts and entrepreneurs.
Researchers from the Brookhaven National Laboratory, in collaboration with the London Centre for Nanotechnology, have mapped the electronic structure of superconducting GIC, KC8 and non-superconducting LiC6.
Scientists from the University of Sheffield have developed pigment-free, intensely coloured polymer materials, which could provide new, anti-counterfeit devices on passports or banknotes due to their difficulty to copy.
Wichtige Details zur molekularen Entschluesselung der Struktur von Zellmembranen beschreibt eine soeben erschienene Publikation des Forscherteams um Georg Pabst vom Institut fuer Biophysik und Nanosystemforschung der Oesterreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften.
Keithley Instruments, Inc., a world leader in advanced electrical test instruments and systems, will broadcast a free, web-based seminar titled "Meeting the Electrical Measurement Demands of High Power, High Brightness LEDs" on Thursday, May 26, 2011.
Physicistc at KIT's Center for Functional Nanostructures (CFN) have worked on refining the structure of the Karlsruhe invisibility cloak to such an extent that it is also effective in the visible spectral range.
Over a two-year period, various European research groups have debated the future of synthetic biology in the TARPOL ("Targeting environmental pollution with engineered microbial Systems a la carte") project.
Researchers at National Nanotechnology Center (NANOTEC) have discovered that using a compound consisting of curcuminoids-succinate prodrugs can improve stability in phosphate buffer, releases curcumin derivatives in human plasma, and shows anti-colon cancer activities.
Such highly coveted technical capabilities as the observation of single catalytic processes in nanoreactors, or the optical detection of low concentrations of biochemical agents and gases are an important step closer to fruition. Researchers report the first experimental demonstration of antenna-enhanced gas sensing at the single particle level.
By combining high pressure with high temperature, Livermore researchers have created a nanocyrstalline diamond aerogel that could improve the optics for something as big as a telescope or as small as the lenses in eyeglasses.
