Latest Nanomanufacturing Stories
There's no shortage of ideas about how to use nanotechnology, but one of the major hurdles is how to manufacture some of the new products on a large scale.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) will celebrate its tenth anniversary with the National Nanotechnology Innovation Summit, December 8-10 at the Gaylord National Convention Center, National Harbor Maryland.
In a report issued to President Barack Obama on Thursday, his Council of Advisors on Science and Technology said that the United States needs to invest more in nanotechnology if it wants to maintain a global lead in the promising field.
Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and IBM Research-ZÃ¼rich have fabricated an ultra sharp, diamond-like carbon tip possessing such high strength that it is 3,000 times more wear-resistant at the nanoscale than silicon.
New U.S. research suggests environmental gains derived from the use of nanomaterials might be partly offset by the processes used to manufacture them.
Today, Applied Materials held a groundbreaking for an expansion project of its Tainan Manufacturing Center.
The first real steps towards building a microscopic device that can construct nano machines have been taken by US researchers. Writing in the peer-reviewed publication, International Journal of Nanomanufacturing from Inderscience Publishers, researchers describe an early prototype for a nanoassembler.
Researchers have taken an important step toward high-volume production of new nanometer-scale structures with the first systematic study of growth conditions that affect production of one-dimensional nanostructures from the optoelectronic material cadmium selenide (CdSe).
Duke engineers have added a new construction tool to their bio-nanofabrication toolbox. Using an enzyme called TdTase, engineers can vertically extend short DNA chains attached to nanometer-sized gold plates. This advance adds new capability to the field of bio-nanomanufacturing.
