Greetings Nanoscience Colleague, =

Dec= ember 2007

Happy Holidays from NanoScienceWork= s=2Eorg. Welcome to our December newsletter. We provide the professional = nanoscience community the latest updates for 20 different nano disciplines,= and can help you share information about you and your projects.




NIST ‘= ;Nanomechanical Mapper’ Offers New Design, Characterization Tool

3D"MOUThe National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIS= T) has unveiled an imaging system to map the mechanical properties of nanomaterials – at billionths o= f a meter. NIST’s new tool could provide research= ers a cost-effective way to characterize (and even design) mixed nanoscale composites or thin-film structures.= Read.

Los Alamos,= European Researchers Near Life-Like ‘Protocells’


3D"=Scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory and across Euro= pe are close to developing a nanoscale system of molec= ules that will exhibit living cell-like behavior. These microscopic ‘Protocells” could be the f= irst step in making life-like devices for specific functions.&nb= sp; Steen Rasmussen (right) and Hans Ziock are p= art of a team of some 23 researchers in the Los Alamos Protocell Assembly project.=
