Directa Plus inaugurates new industrial plant this month – the largest European production unit of its kind
Nanopores could provide a new way to sequence DNA quickly, but the physics involved isn't well understood. That's partly because of the complexities involved in studying the random, squiggly form DNA...
Iran Nanotechnology Society is due to hold the Fifth International Congress on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICNN2014) in Tarbiat Modrres University on 22-24 November 2014.
Trapping light: a long lifetime in a very small place - Researchers create an innovative light-trapping nanostructure using a genetic-inspired approach
Physicists at the University of Rochester have created a silicon nanocavity that allows light to be trapped longer than in other similarly-sized optical cavities. An innovative design approach, which...
Nanoscale composites improve MRI: Rice, Methodist researchers merge magnetic particles to detect, fight disease
Submicroscopic particles that contain even smaller particles of iron oxide could make magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) a far more powerful tool to detect and fight disease.
A researcher at the UJI generates high electron mobility gases in semiconductor nanowires for the first time
Nanotechnology, optics and photovoltaic energy are among the fields that can benefit from advances in knowledge on semiconductor nanowire systems. Researchers at the Universitat Jaume I in Castelló (U...
Iranian researchers from University of Tehran used starch nanocatalysts to produce a coating for the protection and enrichment of food products in factories.
A new brochure from Malvern Instruments details the range of detectors available for Gel Permeation/Size Exclusion Chromatography (GPC/SEC). It also provides scientists with the background required t...
In today's digitally driven world, access to information appears limitless. But when you have something specific in mind that you don't know, like the name of that niche kitchen tool you saw at a f...
Harris & Harris Group Continues Its Blog Series to Highlight Most Impactful Portfolio Companies With HZO, Inc.
Harris & Harris Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:TINY), an investor in transformative companies enabled by disruptive science, released its blog post on HZO, Inc., and why it is on the cutting edge of waterproofin...
6TH CEA-LETI WORKSHOP ON INNOVATIVE MEMORY TECHNOLOGIES includes invited talks by Infineon, IBM, Schlumberger, Thales, Cisco and STMicroelectronics: June 24 Event to Explore NVM Application Horizons from Automotive to Oil & Gas: Responses from Innovative
CEA-Leti is hosting its sixth workshop on innovative memory technologies at MINATEC on Tuesday, June 24, 2014, Grenoble, France.
As of Thursday, June 12, 2014, Beneq's facilities in Vantaa will join Lumineq Displays on its premises in Espoo, Finland.
Iranian chemists from Bu-Ali Sina (Avicenna) University designed a nanosensor with very high sensing ability to measure the amount of anti-HIV drugs.
They are invisible, but perfectly suited for analysing liquids and gases; infrared laser beams are absorbed differently by different molecules. This effect can for instance be used to measure the oxyg...
The use of nanoparticles in cancer research is considered as a promising approach in detecting and fighting tumour cells. The method has, however, often failed because the human immune system recogniz...
Manipulating and Detecting Ultrahigh Frequency Sound Waves: Berkeley Lab Researchers Demonstrate Advance in Controlling Nano-scale Vibrations at 10 GHz
An advance has been achieved towards next generation ultrasonic imaging with potentially 1,000 times higher resolution than today's medical ultrasounds. Researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy...
Iranian textile engineering researchers from Amir Kabir University of Technology produced a new type of protein nanoparticles from chicken feather through a simple and environmental friendly method.
Iranian researchers from Tarbiat Modarres University succeeded in the production of a smart nanocarrier that can be used in medical industries, pharmaceutics, and specially in cancer treatment.
New class of quantum colloidal dot could help make better solar cells
