NANOTECH

NANOTECH

By Huaichen Zhang*, Camilo C. M. Rindt, David M. J. Smeulders, and Silvia V. Nedea*  Abstract (image above) Nanoscale carbon structures such as graphene and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) can greatly improve the effective thermal conductivity of thermally...

In a lab on the other side of the planet, at this very moment, an organic-inorganic jelly now beats with a like-life tempo

Utah Engineers take a step toward Silicon Phototonic Computing at Speeds Millions of Times Faster than Current Machines University of Utah engineers have taken a step forward in creating the next generation of computers and...
nanoparticles and blood

Nanoparticles in air pollution have been linked to heart disease; scientists have found a possible explanation for this. full text Tiny particles in air pollution have been associated with cardiovascular disease, which can lead to...

Have a cavity? Ask your dentist about filling it with a mixture of nanoparticles including silica and zirconia. These white fillings (known as nano-composite resins) resemble teeth better than their metal alternatives and are...

semiconductors

Our modern world is based on semiconductors. In addition to your computer, cellphones, and digital cameras, semiconductors are a critical component of a growing number of devices. Think of the high-efficiency LED lights you...

Wearable electronic devices for health and fitness monitoring are a rapidly growing area of consumer electronics; one of their biggest limitations is the capacity of their tiny batteries to deliver enough power to transmit...
biohackers

For some people, the human body isn’t a temple. Instead they see it as a source of frustration thanks to the considerable limitations compared to the powerful technology available today. In the last few...

The analogy of oil being 'dope' fits. It's a quick fix with bad downsides and poor regard for the future. The present furious pace of technological growth in solar may finally allow our avarice to align with our better interests.

Not a breakthrough-less day goes by for carbon nanotubes. The pace of techno-evolution is matched only by the astounding timeliness of applications that seem to magically appear in answer to the thorniest human problems. A...

courtesy ScienceDaily, June 9, 2013 — More resistant than steel, carbon nanotubes are one of the strongest and hardest materials known. Their impressive electrical and thermal properties make them an extremely versatile material. Hollow...
