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: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
