Progress in nanomedicine

In updating my website, understandingnano.com, recently, I’ve noticed that several efforts in the area of nanotechnology in medicine have moved from the conceptual to the pre-clinical or clinical testing stage. If you want to know more about some of the techniques heading toward commercial use, such as targeted drug delivery to cancer cells, visit my Nanomedicine webpage and let me know what you think or if you’ve… Continue

Small Windmills Improved With Nanotubes

Solar panels are a widely accepted way to generate electricity if your house is off the grid or if you want to supplement power from the grid, however in some regions windmills may be much more effective. Considering that adding nanotubes to composites produces stronger, lighter components I had assumed that nanotubes would be used to produce larger windmills that can withstand higher winds. I was therefore interested to find Eagle Windpower taking a different approach in one of their product… Continue

CMOS Sandwich

Today in class I did two activities. First we did a flow chart showing how we go from a pile of sand to a silicon wafer. The second activity was a CMOS sandwich which is shown in the picture. I used the image from figures 3.22 and 3.23 in "Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology" by Michael Quirk as a guide and the students made CMOS sandwiches according to the following guidelines:



1. Bread is the silicon substrate.

2. Ketchup is… Continue

Next partner events of TINC

We are Media Partner of:

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
