Presentations for Las Vegas High School Students @ MESA Event

Laboratory tour and presentations on materials science and solar cells development was carried out at New Mexico Highlands University for students from Las Vegas high schools. The presentation explained to local students why solar energy is an important source of renewable energy in New Me

Organic Nanostructures for Photothermal Ablation of Cancer

Texas State University team members have developed conductive-polymer based nanostructures that can be used as probes for photothermal ablation of cancer. These agents can induce cell ablation through the conversion of photoenergy into heat, and can therefore be used for laser-induced loc

Photochemical Strategies for the Synthesis of Nanomaterials

Group 11 metal nanoparticles (Au Ag and Cu NPs), bimetallic (AuAg core-shell and alloys NPs with varying composition) and anisotropic nanoparticles (Au nanorods of various aspect ratio) have been prepared using photochemically generated ketyl radicals. The system was also successfully

DíasNano 2014 en el Mall

On April 5, 2014 Wi(PR)2EM and the Science on Wheels Educational Center (SONW) organized and coordinated the NanoDays event at the Mayagüez Mall that we called in Spanish DíasNano 2014.  The Mayagüez Mall is the main shopping mall in western Puerto Rico.  This large event was a collaborat

Hybrid Graphene Oxide Can Capture and Identify Rare Cell Selectively
