Researchers at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN), a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility at DOE's Brookhaven National Laboratory, and Northrop Grumman, a multinational aerospace and defense technology company, have found a way to maintain valley polarization at room temperature using novel materials and techniques.
The Nanotechnology Industries Association (NIA) has actively engaged in the development process of the European Commission and Joint Research Centre’s Framework for safe- and-sustainable-by-design (SSbD) chemicals and materials.
Indium Corporation is pleased to announce that its Director of Global Supply Chain and International Trade Compliance, Donna Vareha-Walsh, has been elected to the American Tin Trade Association Board of Directors.
Sustainable methods for the synthesis of silica NP optimized for usage as novel nano-absorbents to remove harmful substances from water have been discussed in the journal Environmental Research.
The advancement of tire rubber reinforcing techniques employing Sepiolite-based nanotechnology is the focus of new research.
An interdisciplinary research group has been successful in using innovation to resolve a major issue in stem cell research—more particularly, to introduce therapeutic biomolecules into target cells to raise their growth.
Edwards, a leading manufacturer of vacuum and abatement solutions, is joining MIT’s MIT.nano consortium as a founding member with an investment that includes equipment and personnel, as part of a broader initiative to be an essential participant in new technology developments at the nanometer scale.
In the human body, the transport of molecules through channels is vital for various phenomena such as the transfer of genetic information, synthesis and the degradation of biomolecules, and viral infections and protein trafficking.
Nanomachines enable mechanical work to be carried out on the smallest of scales, were awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in the year 2016. However, at such minute dimensions, molecular motors can finish the work only in a single direction.
