Quantum Dots: From Lab to Market

SNNI will host a special materials chemistry seminar on Wednesday, April 17, at 3:30 in 331 Klamath Hall. 

Model examines nanotoxicity in different ionic strength media

Because of the widespread use of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in anti-microbial consumer products there are growing concerns regarding exposure to these materials and potential risks to humans and wildlife. Despite a large number of experiments, the toxicity of AgNPs is still largely unknown. This is partly because of the fact that AgNPs agglomerate differently depending on the media in which they are found, which makes it difficult to assess the inherent toxicity of these nanostructures.

Fluorescence SIM available at EMSL

A new super resolution fluorescence structured illumination microscopy system, or fluorescence SIM, is now available at EMSL as part of the lab’s Cell Isolation and Systems Analysis capabilities. Access to the new instrument is through EMSL’s user proposal process. The EMSL Usage System lists it as Microscope: Fluorescence, Super Resolution Structured Illumination.

Silver nanoparticle shedding

"Nanotechnology, naturally delicious!" In a recent news article by InterNano, Dr. Scott Rickert compiles some tasty facts about nanoparticles in food that dates back to the Egyptians. In his article he mentions some of SNNI's research and a cool video posted by Chemical and Engineering News on that research.

ONAMI researchers win NSF I-Corps"Best in Show"

A team of of ONAMI member researchers, assisted by both ONAMI matching funds and ONAMI Entrepreneur-in-Residence Augie Sick, has won the “Best in Show” prize for the second cohort of NSF Innovation Corps teams.The NSF I-Corps program provides training and advice to university scientists with promising research. This year, 24 teams participated in the program, with final presentations held at Stanford University on May 23.

SNNI's Stacey Harper wins the L.L. Stewart Faculty Scholars Award

Dr. Stacey Harper has been have been selected to receive the L.L. Stewart Faculty Scholars award. The L.L. Stewart Faculty Scholars Program recognizes outstanding faculty at Oregon State University and provides resources to stimulate creative advancements in teaching, research, and extended education. The theme of the award is to support creativity and innovation among the university’s top scholars and is supported by an endowment established by L.L. Stewart.  This award provides $30,000 in financial support for faculty selected as a Stewart Scholar. 

Blue pigment makes headlines again, this time as a patent

Mas Subramanian's cool blue pigment that we first reported here has been found to have unusual characteristics in reflecting heat. It’s a “cool blue” compound that could become important in new approaches to saving energy in buildings. It was discovered by chance as SNNI-OSU scientists were studying some materials for their electrical properties with SNNI funding.
