Physicists Cue Nanosecond Beat of Nano-Baton

By perfecting a technique to control the vibrations of high frequency nano-cantilevers, Canadian physicists have overcome a roadblock to using nano-electro-mechanical systems (NEMS) for digital logic and memory applications and have, taken the first sub-nanosecond mechanical measurements of NEMS.

Researchers Show How to 'Stamp' Nanodevices with Rubber Molds

By manipulating the way tiny droplets of fluid dry, Cornell researchers have created an innovative way to make and pattern nanoscale wires and other devices that ordinarily can be made only with expensive lithographic tools. The process is guided by molds that "stamp" the desired structures.

Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA Launches Program in Nanopediatrics

Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA announced the launch of the Mattel UCLA NanoPediatrics Program, which will explore the future of personalized medicine for children, including the opportunities and risks involved. The program is one of the world's first dedicated solely to nanomedicine and pediatric patients.

Engineering researchers at the University of Arkansas have developed a neural probe that demonstrates significantly greater electrical charge storage capacity than all other neural prosthetic devices. More charge storage capacity means the device can stimulate nerves and tissues with less damage and sense neural signals with better sensitivity.

Nanotechnology: The Big Future of Tiny Medicine

The symposium will examine the use of nano-and micro-fabrication tools and explore techniques for clinical and basic life sciences research, including the development of drug delivery systems, biosensors and fluidic devices, implantable devices, and tissue scaffolds with applications in medical diagnostics and imaging, treatment of cancer and other degenerative diseases, and in orthopedics and wound repair.

Scientists Create World's Thinnest Balloon -- Just One Atom Thick

Using a lump of graphite, a piece of Scotch tape and a silicon wafer, Cornell researchers have created a balloonlike membrane that is just one atom thick -- but strong enough to contain gases under several atmospheres of pressure without popping.

Professor-Turned-Producer Learns the Movie Biz

Molecules_to_the_MAX_promo_poster.jpg

It's not every day that a research scientist and university professor gets to see his work on the silver screen. But in just a few months, Richard Siegel will get to watch his name scroll down the giant screen of a darkened IMAX theater with a new title that seems light years away from laboratory benches and lecture halls: Executive Producer.
