A new study from researchers at North Carolina State University sheds light on how a technique that is commonly used for making single-metal nanoparticles can be extended to create nanoparticles consisting of two metals and that have tunable properties.
Rice University researchers say they have discovered a way to determine the temperature of a molecule or flowing electrons by using Raman spectroscopy combined with an optical antenna.
Researchers from Queen Mary, University of London (UK) and the University of Fribourg (Switzerland) have shown that a magnetically polarized current can be manipulated by electric fields.
University of California, San Diego (UC San Diego) engineers developed the first ultra compact, low power pulse compressor on a silicon chip to be described in the scientific literature.
University of California, San Diego NanoEngineers won a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop the tools to manufacture biodegradable frames around which heart tissues -- functional blood vessels included -- will grow.
University of Michigan-Dearborn mechanical engineering Prof. Pravansu Mohanty's start-up company, CSquared Innovations, won a $25,000 Next Gen Manufacturing Award. The company uses nano-structured films and materials for diverse applications.
ActaCell Inc. was awarded up to $3 million over a 3-year period in funding from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s NIST. The funding will focus on production scale up of nanocomposite alloy anode materials for lithium-ion batteries to be used in electric vehicles and other demanding applications.
