Just when we think we have administering medications down to a science, researchers have discovered a new method that could one day be more effective than methods used today.
PARSIPPANY, N.J., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Although the market for synthetic latex polymers in Europe is expected to grow at a modest CAGR of 0.9% through 2014, it continued to demonstrate a declining trend in 2009 due to significant contraction in major end-use markets.
Researchers at Queen's University have discovered how molecules in glass or plastic are able to move when exposed to light from a laser.
Ultra-thin solar cells can absorb sunlight more efficiently than the thicker, more expensive-to-make silicon cells used today, because light behaves differently at scales around a nanometer (a billionth of a meter).
A team led by a North Carolina State University researcher has shown that water-gel-based solar devices â€“ â€œartificial leavesâ€ â€“ can act like solar cells to produce electricity.
The ability of phase-change materials to readily and swiftly transition between different phases has made them valuable as a low-power source of non-volatile or â€œflashâ€ memory and data storage.
The PhD thesis by Carlos EcheverrÃa Arrondo, Doctor in Physics from the Public University of Navarre and entitled â€œOn doped semiconductor quantum dots and magnetic nanowiresâ€, studied the behaviour and properties of nanometric-scale semiconductor crystals.
Tokyo, Sept 3, 2010 - (JCN Newswire) - Sony Chemical & Information Device Corporation commercialized and commenced full-scale mass production of the SP100 Series, Solar Cell Conductive Film for photovoltaic modules in April 2010.
Processes which lend materials new characteristics are generally complicated and therefore often rather difficult to reproduce.
Collaboration by chemists, physicists and materials scientists at the University of Pennsylvania has created a simple and inexpensive method to rapidly grow centimeter-scale membranes of binary nanocrystal superlattices, or BNSLs, by crystallizing a mixture of nanocrystals on a liquid surface.
