Fundació URV posted this:NEW PROCEDURE FOR OBTAINING MONOLAYERS OF FUNCTIONALIZED NANOPARTICLESThis new procedure (not described in the bibliography) allows the manufacture of monolayers of metal nanoparticles linked by molecules of organic compounds. As you can see in Specifications, this procedure consists in two successive processes. One of the main advantages of this technology is the minimization of impurities in the functionalized monolayer compared to commonly used techniques. Besides, the manufacture of Schotty diode with this new procedure has been shown for the first time. In the same line, this procedure allows the use of monolayers of metal nanoparticles for metabolite detection. These are two unique and differents aspects of this technology in relation to other known used techniques.

We have also developed methods to characterize the ZT values of individual wires, i.e., free of any averaging of ensemble measurements, and we show that our BiNWs have superior thermoelectric properties at low temperatures (77K), with ZT>3.

RAMOT at Tel Aviv University Ltd. posted this:Molecular Electronics and Transistors based on Peptide NanostructuresProprietary peptide nanostructures can be readily fabricated on various surfaces including electrodes. A physical vapor deposition method (PVD) allows the precise control on the molecular dimensions of the structures using industry standard techniques. These nanostructures were used to fabricate metallic nanowires1 as well as trilayer metal-peptide-metal nano-cables. Electrodes and storages devices were modified with the peptide nanostructures. Recent work includes the application of the nanostructures to Ion-Sensitive Field-Effect Transistor (ISFET) with very strong responses measured, providing the basis for potential applications (to be published). The chemical nature of the building blocks allows the simple modification with various recognition elements. This could be readily modified to recognize DNA bases for sequencing purposes. The peptide structures are semi-conductive and possess various other unique physical properties (including mechanical rigidity, piezoelectric properties, non-linear optical properties, etc.).

RAMOT at Tel Aviv University Ltd. posted this:Iron oxide nanoparticles (IOP) for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and other inflammatory conditionsA novel approach for the treatment of AMI has been developed using IOPs. IOPs, when injected into the infarcted myocardium, lead to improved heart function after MI. IOPs activate anti-inflammatory macrophages and thus promote tissue healing and repair and prevent myocardial remodeling and dysfunction. Potential Applications IOPs can be used to treat AMI and other inflammatory conditions associated with pro-inflammatory activated macrophages and to promote tissue healing and repair. Advantages ? IOPs are nontoxic ? IOPs are FDA approved for use in humans for MRI imaging Stage In vivo studies in mouse and rat models of MI and heart failure Project ID : 10-2011-247
