Light in the Moebius strip: A Moebius strip created from laser light opens up new possibilities for material processing and for micro- and nanotechnology
Physics sometimes borders on light art. An international team headed by researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light and Friedrich-Alexander-Universitaet Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU)...
Researchers compare effect of carbon-based nanostructures on rodent lungs.
Scientists have shown that gold nanotubes have many applications in fighting cancer: internal nanoprobes for high-resolution imaging; drug delivery vehicles; and agents for destroying cancer cells.
Scientists used supercomputers to find a new class of materials that possess an exotic state of matter known as the quantum spin Hall effect. The researchers published their results in the journal Sci...
Manchester scientists have found that gentle heating of targeted nano-sized drug parcels more effectively in deliver them to tumour cells - resulting in an improvement in survival rates.
U.S. Photovoltaic Manufacturing Consortium (PVMC) Demonstrates Innovative PV Installation Technologies that Reduce Balance of System (BOS) Costs by up to 25%

Extreme-temperature electronics: Futuristic material molybdenum disulfide may find new application for thin-film transistors in extremely high-temperature electronics and sensors
Many industries are calling for electronics that can operate reliably in a harsh environment, including extreme temperatures above 200° Celsius. Examples of the high temperature applications include t...
Iranian researchers from Sahand University of Technology and Islamic Azad University studied the effect of using nanoparticles on increasing oil extraction from reservoirs.
Electronics you can wrap around your finger: A new multiferroric film keeps its electric and magnetic properties even when highly curved, paving the way for potential uses in wearable devices
Electronic devices have shrunk rapidly in the past decades, but most remain as stiff as the same sort of devices were in the 1950s -- a drawback if you want to wrap your phone around your wrist when y...
Despite having a diameter tens of thousands of times smaller than a human hair, nanopores could be the next big thing in DNA sequencing. By zipping DNA molecules through these tiny holes, scientists h...
The second law of thermodynamics tells us that all systems evolve toward a state of maximum entropy, wherein all energy is dissipated as heat, and no available energy remains to do work. Since the mid...
Novel non-stick material joins portfolio of slippery surface technologies: Infusing liquids into polymers makes long lasting, self-replenishing material that repels deadly bacterial build-up
More than 80 percent of microbial infections in the human body are caused by a build-up of bacteria, according to the National Institutes of Health. Bacteria cells gain a foothold in the body by accum...
