New Nanoforum Website Launched

24.08.2005


New look but same breadth of information

The new-look is the result of a critical evaluation of website functionality and a review of what registered users want from Nanoforum. The revamped website offers the same level of information and detail as before, but it is now easier to search for related information.

The homepage lists the latest news with quick links to events, organisations, calls and programs, and Nanoforum reports, with the number of entries in each listed in brackets. There is also a “Highlights” section for the latest news from Nanoforum (for example new reports, conferences etc) as well as other important information for the community. In addition advertising space on the Nanoforum homepage is now available.



However, the main difference that regular users will find is the classification of information into different sectors using a pictorial menu bar.

New Navigation System

A new pictorial menu bar located below the Nanoforum banner allows users to access information on specific sectors quickly:

• Chemistry and Materials
• Health and Nanobio
• NanoTools and Metrology
• Information and Communication
• Transport and Space
• Energy
• Fundamental Science

and the following additional sectors can be chosen by selecting the “more” button to the right of the menu bar:

• Society Issues
• Safety and Environment
• Consumer Products
• Construction
• Strategy
• Economy
• Agriculture and Food

Clicking on any of these buttons filters all the information in the Nanoforum databases to present only that which is relevant to the selected sector.

This information is displayed in convenient panels in the following categories: news, events, calls and programs, and publications. Additional sections for organisations, and Nanoforum reports are present with a “Further Information” panel providing links to information on education, investment, and jobs, and specialised sections for press and business.

Other changes

An easier-to-use interface has been developed which allows users to find details of organisations within each state by clicking on a map of Europe. In this regard the “Institutions” database has been renamed to “Organisations” to reflect the fact that entries are from both the private and publicly funded sectors.

The extended search facility has been improved and allows users to search for specific entries within the Nanoforum website from each sub-page (the original system of searching by “R&D” or “Applications” is still possible).

A site-map for nanoforum.org has also been included for user convenience, and is located at the top of the screen, along with information on Nanoforum and contact details.

Most importantly, all of this information is free. All we ask is that users take a few moments to complete a registered user form which will also allow us to keep you up-to-date with all the latest European nanotechnology news.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
