Many mysteries of nature are locked up in the world of the very small and the very fast. Chemical reactions and material phase transitions, for example, happen on the scale of atoms and attoseconds. A research team from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Massachusetts, in collaboration ...
Tiny nanoscale filaments could be breakthrough for smaller, denser memory devices
Memory based on electrically-induced "resistive switching" effects have generated a great deal of interest among engineers searching for faster and smaller devices because resistive switching would allow for a higher memory density. Researchers have tested a number of oxide materials for their ...
New programme aims to help companies increase productivity with technology solutions for pharmaceutical and chemical sectors
Pfizer Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd, Glaxo Wellcome Manufacturing Pte. Ltd. and Siemens Pte. Ltd, have signed on as founding members of a new A*STAR R&D Consortium Programme - Innovative Processing of Specialties and Pharmaceuticals (iPSP). Launched by A*STAR’s Institute of Chemical and Engineering ...
First full colour images at 100,000 dpi resolution
Researchers from A*STAR’s Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) have developed an innovative method for creating sharp, full-spectrum colour images at 100,000 dots per inch (dpi), using metal-laced nanometer-sized structures, without the need for inks or dyes. In comparison, ...
Researchers from A*STAR's Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) and their commercial partners have developed a new plastic that reflects just 0.09 - 0.2% of the visible light hitting its surface. This matches or betters existing anti-reflective and anti-glare plastics in the ...
The National Metrology Centre (NMC) of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) and the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) have jointly set up a national Metrology in Chemistry (MiC) infrastructure. Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry and Education, Mr S. Iswaran ...
New method creates super-thin, high integrity, continuous metal lines that surpass today’s semiconductor industry requirements
Scientists from Singapore A*STAR’s Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), University of Cambridge (UK) and Sungkyunkwan University (South Korea) have created metallic lines so thin and smooth that they can only be seen using powerful electron microscopes. This research will be ...
Metals that dissolve in water successfully extracted, transferred into layer of organic solvent that floats on water
Nanostructured materials have garnered great interest worldwide due to their unique size-dependent properties for chemical, electronic, structural, medical and consumer applications. Singapore's Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) has discovered a new environmentally friendly ...
'Green' method for sequestration and conversion of greenhouse gas
Scientists at Singapore's Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) have succeeded in unlocking the potential of carbon dioxide - a common greenhouse gas - by converting it into a more useful product. In the international chemistry journal Angewandte Chemie, the IBN researchers report ...
Highly fluorescent gold nanoclusters for sub-cellular imaging have been synthesized by researchers at the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN), one of the research institutes of Singapore's A*STAR (Agency for Science, Technology and Research). Measuring less than 1 nanometer in ...
