A pioneer in green nanotechnology, University of Oregon professor James Hutchison proposes creating safety-approved nanoscale building blocks - nanoparticle lines and arrays - that would integrate smoothly with existing silicon chip-processing steps. Hutchison is the director of the Materials Science Institute on the university's Eugene campus. Brooks-Cole last year published his book Green Organic Chemistry: Strategies, Tools and Laboratory Experiments.

An electrical engineer from Purdue University claims that his team has developed the first all-optical method of generating ultrawideband signals.
Nanotech sparks fuel research
News & Analysis  
4/4/2005   Post a comment
Using the National Synchrotron Light Source at Brookhaven National Laboratory, researchers have characterized cerium oxide (ceria) nanoparticles to reveal how the particles might more efficiently clean emissions from fossil-fuel exhaust as well as efficiently produce hydrogen for use as a zero-emission fuel.


Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
