Nanotechnology

News
  1. Nanotechnology News (NewScientistTech.com)
      Provides news.

Papers
  1. Carbon Fibers: A History (Wikipedia.org)
      "Carbon fiber or carbon fibre is also sometimes called graphite fiber. It has the highest compressive strength of all the reinforcing materials (composite materials), and it has a high strength to weight ratio and low coefficient of thermal expansion." 02-08

  2. Carbon Fibers: Manufacturing the Fibers (Polymer Science Learning Center)
      "Carbon fiber...the wonder polymer...stronger than steel, and much lighter...but how does one make it? It's made something like this: We start off with another polymer, one called polyacrylonitrile. We take this polymer, and heat it up." 02-08

  3. DNA-Based Computer (BBC News)
      Describes a new nanocomputer developed at the Weizmann Institute in Israel by Professor Ehud Shapiro. A trillion of the computers will fit in a standard test tube. 11-01

  4. Electricity from Water (BBC News)
      "A new way to generate electricity from water which could be used to power small electronic devices in the future has been developed by Canadian scientists." The source of electricity may have applications for nanotechnology. 10-03

  5. Fuel Cells - Hydrogen Storage for Fuel Cells (Post-Gazette.com - Spice)
      Describes a new storage method for hydrogen that uses carbon nanotubes, allowing travel by automobile for thousands of miles on a single tank of hydrogen. 1-01

  6. Nanotechnology (Merkle)
      Includes links to sites that discuss very small devices, including future computers and processors.

  7. Nanotechnology (Northwestern.edu)
      Discusses latest technology in medicine.

  8. Next Giant Leap in Science (NASA)
      "When it comes to taking the next 'giant leap' in space exploration, NASA is thinking small -- really small."

      "In laboratories around the country, NASA is supporting the burgeoning science of nanotechnology. The basic idea is to learn to deal with matter at the atomic scale -- to be able to control individual atoms and molecules well enough to design molecule-size machines, advanced electronics and "smart" materials." 1-04
