IBN’s 3D Tissue Engineering Looks To Improve Organ Transplants

IBN’s 3D Tissue Engineering Looks To Improve Organ Transplants

Researchers at Singapore’s Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) have developed a simple method of organizing cells and their microenvironments in hydrogel fibers. Their unique technology provides a feasible template for assembling complex structures, such as liver and fat tissues.


NIST, UNC Design New Device for More Accurate Thin Film Measurement

Researchers from NIST (the National Institute of Standards and Technology) and the University of North Carolina have designed a new "instrumented nanoscale indenter" to improve the accuracy of sensitive measurements of thin film surface properties.

NIST 'Nanotubes on a Chip' Aims To Lead Power Measurements

A novel chip-scale instrument made from carbon nanotubes may simplify absolute measurements of laser power. Developers of the unit at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) say it may prove especially useful for measuring light signals transmitted by optical fibers in telecom networks.

Shapes Could Matter Big Time in DNA Nanoparticle Therapy

Researchers from Johns Hopkins and Northwestern universities have discovered that the shape of nanoparticles that move DNA through the body could make a big difference in how well such therapies work to treat cancer and other diseases. The scientists also have figured how to control these shapes.

Smallest Nanolaser Could Open New Era of Smaller, Faster Photonic Devices

Researchers from University of Texas at Austin, in collaboration with researchers in Taiwan and China, have developed the world's smallest semiconductor laser, invisible to the naked eye.

Fundamentals of Nanotechnology

Fundamentals of Nanotechnology
This textbook offers a new paradigm for teaching the next generation of nanotechnologists. The authors survey the physical basics of nanotechnology (nanorheology, nanofluidics, nanomaterials and nanomechanics), and many industrial concerns -- manufacturing, reliability, and safety. This textbook is an ideal companion to "Introduction to Nanoscience," by the same group of esteemed authors. In January 2010, CHOICE recognized Fundamentals of Nanotechnology as its Outstanding Academic Textbook (OAT), calling this first-of-its-kind nanoscience textbook a comprehensive, highly readable book with extremely high production values, which can be read and appreciated by experts and nonspecialists alike.

Introduction to Nanoscience

Introduction to Nanoscience
Tomorrow's nanoscientist will have a truly interdisciplinary and nano-centric education, rather than, for example, a degree in chemistry with a specialization in nanoscience. This textbook is a full-color masterwork presents an overview of the nanoscale, including characterization and fabrication across chemistry, physics, and biology aspects of nanoscience.
