The End of Moore’s Law

The End of Moore’s Law

As our electronic devices continue to grow in power and shrink in size, the semiconductor industry has been challenged to increase the number of transistors per unit. For 50 years, the industry has basically observed Moore’s Law, named after Intel co-founder Gordon Moore. He observed in 1965 that the number of transistors per silicon chip […]

An RNAmazing research breakthrough

An RNAmazing research breakthrough

Understanding ribonucleic acid (RNA) and its chemical properties and biological mechanisms is a key area of focus in health research. RNA is critical in the processing and movement of genetic information and gene expression. The way RNA folds into various tertiary structures determines its biological function, and being able to dissect and alter that process […]

Silver nanoparticle concentration too low to be harmful in water supply, paper finds

Silver nanoparticles have a wide array of uses, one of which is to treat drinking water for harmful bacteria and viruses. But do silver nanoparticles also kill off potentially beneficial bacteria or cause other harmful effects to water-based ecosystems? A new paper from a team of University of Missouri College of Engineering researchers says that’s not the case.

MU researchers aim to increase accuracy of nanoscale simulations

The accuracy of such simulations requires using the right interatomic potential, or force field. Researchers with the University of Missouri College of Engineering are paving the way to make selecting the proper force field easier.

Grad students win nanotechnology image contest
