Application of statistical experimental design for optimization of silver nanoparticles biosynthesis by a nanofactory
Objective: The aim of this project is to translate the concept of production line to the nanoworld to develop what could become tomorrows nanofactory
, which brings together scientists and engineers from Huddersfield, Bradford, Leeds, Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam, and York universities, is offering local companies the opportunity to Take a Tech Check
Also on the stand will be Nanofactory
, a European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) supported consortium of six research-intensive universities who offer their world-leading expertise to accelerate innovatton in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
Instruments AB, Gothenburg, Sweden, have integrated the optoelectronic and imaging capabilities within the confined space of a high-resolution TEM, and now offer the only sample stage able to simultaneously perform in situ electrical, optical, mechanical, and structural measurements and manipulations of samples on a TEM.
In 2006, Ralph Merkle and I founded the Nanofactory
Collaboration to coordinate on an R&D program to design and build the first working nanofactory
that could build medical nanorobots.
The replacement chromosomes are manufactured earlier, outside of the patient's body, using a desktop nanofactory
that includes a molecular assembly line.
would operate in a similar fashion, albeit on a microscopic scale; it would take infinitely smaller parts (atoms and molecules) and assemble them according to programming so as to create the same finished product.
development is pursued competitively, without cooperative engagement and usage limitations, we can expect that many countries will achieve both economic independence and unprecedented military prowess.
Drexler: "[T]o visualize how a nanofactory
system works, it helps to consider a conventional factory system.
The ideal situation would be to design an RNA sequence that can get transcribed inside the bacteria, and fold inside the bacteria so we can use bacteria as a nanofactory
to produce the material.
Huddersfield University has linked up with the universities of Leeds, Bradford, York, Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam to set up a Nanofactory
- and wants to forge partnerships with firms interested in making the most of latest advances in nanotechnology.
