ConferenceMonday, May 23, 2016 - 1:00am to Wednesday, May 25, 2016 - 1:00am http://nationalinnovationsummit.com/program/National_SBIR_Conference.html SBIR/STTR programs are the nation's largest source of early stage / high risk R&D funding for small business. At this conference you’ll learn how to participate and compete for funding in these two programs that encourage small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) and to commercialize your technological innovations.
ConferenceSunday, May 22, 2016 - 1:00am to Wednesday, May 25, 2016 - 1:00am http://nationalinnovationsummit.com/ Join us in Washington D.C. as the TechConnect World Innovation Conference co-locates with the largest global innovation program in physical and life sciences. The joint programs include the Nanotech 2016 Conference, the National Innovation Summit and the National SBIR/STTR Conference.
Invisibility cloaks are a staple of science fiction and fantasy, from Star Trek to Harry Potter, but don't exist in real life, or do they? Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)'s Lawrence...
Single atoms or molecules imprisoned by laser light in a doughnut-shaped metal cage could unlock the key to advanced storage devices, computers and high-resolution instruments.
Physicists defy conventional wisdom to identify ferroelectric material: 'Careful engineering' induces ferroelectricity in ultrathin film of strontium titanate
A team of physicists has defied conventional wisdom by inducing stable ferroelectricity in a sheet of strontium titanate only a few nanometers thick.
Nanoelectronics could get a boost from carbon research: The smallest of electronics could one day have the ability to turn on and off on an atomic scale
Lawrence Livermore scientists have investigated a way to create linear chains of carbon atoms from laser-melted graphite. The material, called carbyne, could have a number of novel properties, includi...
Iranian researchers modeled a nanosensor that improves the imaging of cancer tissues.
Targeted drug delivery with these nanoparticles can make medicines more effective: Nanoparticles wrapped inside human platelet membranes serve as new vehicles for targeted drug delivery
Nanoparticles disguised as human platelets could greatly enhance the healing power of drug treatments for cardiovascular disease and systemic bacterial infections. These platelet-mimicking nanoparticl...
Platinum and iron oxide working together get the job done: Scientists at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) have figured out how a platinum catalyst works -- its remarkable properties are not just due to the platinum, the iron-oxide substrate b
Platinum is a great catalyst and can be used for many different applications. It's expensive stuff though, so tiny platinum nanoparticles sitting on cheap metal oxide materials are used to convert har...
Topical research experiments are often too expensive or too complex to be rebuilt and incorporated in teaching. How can one, nevertheless, make modern science accessible to the public? This challenge...
Researchers at the University of Birmingham have shown how the development of coated silica nanoparticles could be used in restorative treatment of sensitive teeth and preventing the onset of tooth de...
Synthetic biology needs robust safety mechanisms before real world application: Ethics and technology hold the key to the success of synthetic biology
Targeted cancer treatments, toxicity sensors and living factories: synthetic biology has the potential to revolutionize science and medicine. But before the technology is ready for real-world applicat...
Pollution caused by heavy metals is one of the serious concerns in the field of environmental protection and; therefore, researchers from University of Mazandaran, Iran, produced magnetic nanosorbent...
Needs of the semiconductor industry are driving development of material-removal method with atomic-level precision
Tailored ALD precursors form atomically thin layers of metals, dielectrics, and other compounds
Carbon Materials: Microwaving suspensions of graphite in an ionic liquid produces pristine form of ultrathin carbon
Molecular Electronics: Researchers report 24-fold improvement in the efficiency of metal-to-semiconductor electron transfer
Using a technique that mimics how plants use solar energy and forcing two otherwise incompatible molecules to work together to cover the full color spectrum, engineers from Yale University have significantly increased the efficiency of polymer solar cells. The researchers, in Dr. Andre Taylor’s Transformative Materials & Devices Lab, developed a solar cell that performed […] The post SEAS Engineers Develop More Efficient Solar Cells appeared first on SciTech Daily.
