20.10.2010 Taking the next step with graphene research
The 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics went to the two scientists who first isolated graphene, one-atom-thick crystals of graphite. Now, an investigator with the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering is finding success in his work to develop a method to mass-produce this revolutionary material.
02.08.2010 University of Aberdeen Collaborates with IBM to Identify Molecules from the Deep Sea
In a pioneering research project, for the first time, scientists at IBM (NYSE: IBM) and the University of Aberdeen have collaborated to "see" the structure of a marine compound from the deepest place on the Earth using an atomic force microscope (AFM). The results of the project open up new possibilities in biological research.
07.10.2010 3D tissue models for studying bacterial infection
A research team, co-headed by Dr. Woo Lee and Dr. Hongjun Wang of Stevens Institute of Technology, has published a paper describing a new method that generates three-dimensional (3D) tissue models for studying bacterial infection of orthopedic implants.
03.09.2014 New Synthesis Method May Shape Future of Nanostructures, Clean Energy
A team of University of Maryland physicists has published new nanoscience advances that they and other scientists say make possible new nanostructures and nanotechnologies with huge potential applications ranging from clean energy and quantum computing advances to new sensor development.
25.06.2015 Self-assembly of silicon metamaterial for nanoscale reflectors
Recently highlighted in a C&EN article titled Simple Process Creates Near-Perfect Mirrors Out of a Metamaterial, researchers out of Vanderbilt University developed a method to self-assemble silicon nanostructures to achieve highly (Bragg-like) reflective mirrors which capitalize on nanoscale properties not present in bulk structures. The self-assembly method is far simpler than previous, conventional electron beam [...]
18.02.2010 Cargo carrier of the cells is life"s smallest motor
Life's smallest motor, a protein that shuttles cargo within cells and helps cells divide, does so by rocking up and down like a seesaw, according to research conducted by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Brandeis University.
24.02.2010 Faster and Cheaper Way to Detect DNA Developed
IBN has successfully developed a novel electronic sensor array for more rapid, accurate and cost-efficient testing of DNA for disease diagnosis and biological research. This study by IBN Group Leader Dr Zhiqiang Gao and his team was published in the leading international chemistry journal, Journal of the American Chemical Society.
26.02.2010 Rhodia Research Collaboration to Leverage Academic and Government Resources for Sustainable Technologies
Three prominent research organizations from academia, government and industry will focus their combined worldwide expertise to develop new, sustainable technologies in the field of soft condensed matter, a science at the interface of chemistry, biology, physics and nanotechnology.
17.03.2010 Hydrogen Storage Issues Could Be Solved By Layered Graphene Sheets
Graphene - carbon formed into sheets a single atom thick - now appears to be a promising base material for capturing hydrogen, according to recent research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Pennsylvania. The findings suggest stacks of graphene layers could potentially store hydrogen safely for use in fuel cells and other applications.
19.03.2010 IEEE Spectrum looks at cryonics
The March 2010 issue of IEEE Spectrum has an article on cryonics, a method of suspended animation, featuring Dr. Ralph Merkle. Ralph is described as a nanotechnology expert; apparently the issue went to press just before he was also named as a co-winner of the 2010 IEEE Haming Medal.
As a long-time IEEE member, I was [...]
