A panel of experts from academia, industry, and government agencies has said that Canada may lose top nanotechnology researchers if it does not promote nanotechnology. The panel discussion took place Thursday at Nanotechnology Day at Concordia University in Canada. The panel said that lack of government...
This article says that Anup K. Pujari, principal secretary to the Government Department of IT, Biotech, Science and Technology of Karnataka, India, has announced that the state government and the Indian Institute of Science have begun planning an annual industry-academia nanotechnology event in Bangalore,...
A plant nutrition study that addresses nano-sized plant nutrients is now available from the Landbouwkundige Uitgeverij G.C. van den Berg (Veenendaal, The Netherlands). This publication looks at the many scientific studies and patent publications from the last decade regarding this innovative technology,...
Nanotech Europe 2009, Europe's largest international nanotechnology conference and exhibition, will be held from September 28-30, 2009, in Berlin, Germany. The conference, in its fifth year, is for nanotechnology professionals with an interest in research or taking that research to market. It...
This article says that blogs are being used by some people involved in nanotechnology as a tool for more quickly and conveniently sharing research with other nanotechnology researchers and stakeholders. Chris Newfield from the Center for Nanotechnology in Society at the University of California Santa...
This year’s Nobel Prize for physics has been awarded to Albert Fert of Université Paris-Sud in France and Peter Grünberg of Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany for their discovery of giant magnetoresistance (GMR), described by the Nobel citation from the Royal Swedish Academy of...
The University of Oregon, Oregon Museum of Science, and Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute (ONAMI), all in the U.S., are hosting a public forum on March 12 to discuss the potential benefits and risks of nanotechnology for society. The public forum will include lectures from an expert...
Scientists from the International Institute for Nano and Molecular Medicine at the University of Missouri at Columbia in the U.S. are using pigs to study the use of gold nanoparticles for cancer treatment. The articles says that scientific trials on rodents can often fail when transferred to human studies,...
Researchers from Michigan State University in the U.S. have recently found that layers of silica nanoparticles can be deposited through thin polymer films to prevent buckling and say that the same principle could potentially be used to prevent wrinkling in human skin. The researchers believe that film...
A researcher from the University of Twente in the Netherlands is developing nanoscale “needles” that can potentially be used to store data and applied to write and read in storage media with very high densities. Researcher Alexander le Febre has demonstrated that a field-emission current...
