Researchers at the University of Tokyo, Georgia Tech and a team from Microsoft Research have developed a low-cost method of printing circuits using an ordinary inkjet printer using a technique called Instant Inkjet Circuits.
Herein, we report a quick and simple synthesis of water-soluble gold nanoparticles using a HAuCl4 and oleylamine mixture.
Despite recent advances in the design and fabrication of mechanical resonators, their Q-factor has so far been limited by coupling to the environment through physical contact to a support.
In this paper we study this behavior using a coarse grained molecular dynamics simulation approach."
Bangalore, Dec 5 : Karnataka is ready to enhance budgetary support to nanotechnology initiatives and help the growth of the sunrise sector, state Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said Thursday.
Here, we compare two vaccine delivery systems, namely electroporation and cationic solid-lipid nanoparticle formulation, to administer a DNA vaccine harbouring the L.donovani A2 antigen along with L.infantum cysteine proteinases [CPA and CPB without its unusual C-terminal extension ] and evaluate their potential against L.infantum challenge."
However, the particles have to be injected into patients, which has limited their usefulness so far .
The flexibility in composition; and structure enabled by tailoring electrodes at the nanoscale could drastically change the ionic transport and help meet new levels of Li-ion battery performance."
Someday you will take a pill that will fix your body. Sounds like science fiction and, though not yet science fact, it is a tantalizing potential presented by a breakthrough in nano technology and biomedicine from researchers in the U.S., Denmark and Rome.
Well-known examples are capsids, the regular protein shells of viruses, which protect and deliver the viral genome."
This composite exhibits a loose slab morphology with a thickness of 5-10 layers, and the interlayer space is approximate to 4.4 nm because of intercalation of enzymes."
The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from University Erlangen-Nurnberg, "The resulting hybrid nanotube arrays exhibit excellent catalytic activity towards non-enzymatic glucose electro-oxidation.
To foster and expand research and innovation, International Textile Group Inc. on Wednesday announced that its Cone Denim and Burlington divisions have joined a consortium that operates as a program of the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering in Greensboro.
A DNA cage , with lipid-like molecules . The lipids come together in a 'handshake' within the cage to encapsulate small-molecule drugs .
That's the conclusion of a review of the current state of nanoscience and nanotechnology to be published in the International Journal of Nanomanufacturing.
"Given the importance and growth of microscopy, as the Department [of Science and Technology], we regard it as crucial in addressing some of our strategic priorities in the areas of human capital development by training competent technicians to do research on HIV, mining and many other fields, using the high-end microscopes that the department has ...
