World scientific leaders gather in Espoo to accelerate development of bioactive paper


New methods are being developed in Finland, under VTT's direction, for the economical mass production of bioactive paper products, among others based on printing technology. The development is accelerated by organizing a joint conference with Canada's SENTINEL Bioactive Paper Network. The ...


Laser light produces complex nanostructures


Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden have reported that a single laser pulse can create complex, ordered nanostructure systems. This previously unobserved phenomenon has just beeen described in an article in the scientific journal Nature Photonics. "We have discovered a ...


Safer, easier system for remote explosive detection


Detecting roadside bombs may become easier, thanks to chemical sensors being developed at the University of Michigan. A team led by chemistry professor Theodore Goodson III has created materials that sniff out TNT and give off signals that can be detected remotely - from a moving Humvee, for ...


Chemical engineers discover new way to control particle motion potentially aiding micro- and nano-fluid systems


Chemical engineers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered a new way to control the motion of fluid particles through tiny channels, potentially aiding the development of micro- and nano-scale technologies such as drug delivery devices, chemical and biological sensors, and components ...

Rice scientists make breakthrough in single-molecule sensing

Simultaneous optical and electronic measurements on same molecule


In a study that could lay the foundation for mass-produced single-molecule sensors, physicists and engineers at Rice University have demonstrated a means of simultaneously making optical and electronic measurements of the same molecule. The research is slated to appear in Nano Letters. The ...


Fine print: New technique allows fast printing of microscopic electronics


A new technique for printing extraordinarily thin lines quickly over wide areas could lead to larger, less expensive and more versatile electronic displays as well new medical devices, sensors and other technologies. Solving a fundamental and long-standing quandary, chemical engineers at ...


Iowa State engineer develops laser technologies to analyze combustion, biofuels


Let's say a fuel derived from biomass produces too much soot when it's burned in a combustion chamber designed for fossil fuels. How can an engineer find the source of the problem? It originates, after all, in the flame zone of a highly turbulent combustion chamber. That's not exactly an easy ...

NIST announces first observation of 'persistent flow' in a gas


Using laser light to stir an ultracold gas of atoms, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Joint Quantum Institute (NIST/University of Maryland) have demonstrated the first "persistent" current in an ultracold atomic gas - a frictionless flow of ...
