Conference video: Mythbusting Knowledge Transfer Mechanisms through Science Gateways

Prof. Gerhard Klimeck described the success of, a science and engineering gateway providing online simulations through a web browser for nanotechnology research and education.

Single-molecule light-driven nanosubmarine

Each time a laser pulse actuates the cis-trans isomerization of a single carbon-carbon double bond, a single-molecule nanosubmarine made of 244 atoms is driven forward 9 nm against Brownian diffusion.

Generating hydrogen with single atom catalysts

Single cobalt atoms have been positioned in nitrogen-doped graphene to catalytically produce hydrogen from water almost as effectively as using vastly more expensive platinum catalysts.

Foresight co-founder on the future of the human lifespan

Optimized Geek podcast featured Christine Peterson on the future of nanotechnology, human lifespan, artificial intelligence, finding love, and other topics.

Conference video: Bringing Computational Programmability to Nanostructured Surfaces

Dr. Alex Wissner-Gross surveyed the interplay between programmability of bits and atoms in the development of technology, asking how the recent successes with programming bits can help nanotechnology progress in programming atoms.

Addressable molecular machines arranged in a porous crystal

Simple molecular switches based upon bistable mechanically interlocked molecules can be incorporated within pre-assembled metal organic frameworks and addressed electrochemically.

Conference video: Artificial Biochemistry with DNA

Modeling DNA strand displacement cascades according to three simple rules can in principle mimic the temporal dynamics of any other chemical system, presenting a method to model regulatory networks even more complicated than those of biology.

Another nanotechnology computer memory breakthrough from Feynman Prize winner

A novel nanostructured material based on tantalum oxide could make possible non-volatile crossbar array memories that store up to 162 gigabits in 3-D memory stacks.

Foresight co-sponsors Berkeley Bench to Market event

To educate potential entrepreneurs on strategies for moving discoveries from the benchtop to successful commercialization, Foresight co-sponsored an event in the “Ph.D. to Startup” Workshop Series of the Berkeley Postdoc Entrepreneur Program.

Foresight 1999 Distinguished Student wins Galactic Grant Competition

Technology developed by Nanobiosym, founded by Anita Goel, to enable personalized diagnostic testing won the Grand Prize of the Nokia Sensing XCHALLENGE in 2013, and this month was awarded the top prize in the Galactic Grant Competition.
