Nano News & Events
Our world is full of patterns, from the twist of a DNA molecule to the spiral of the Milky Way. New research from Carnegie Mellon chemists has revealed that tiny, synthetic gold nanoparticles exhibit...
A glass fiber that brings light to a standstill: By coupling photons to atoms, light in a glass fiber can be slowed down to the speed of an express train; for a short while it can even be brought to a complete stop
Light is an extremely useful tool for quantum communication, but it has one major disadvantage: it usually travels at the speed of light and cannot be kept in place. A team of scientists at the Vienna...
A team of researchers from the University of Cambridge have unravelled one of the mysteries of electromagnetism, which could enable the design of antennas small enough to be integrated into an electro...
Thermochromic nano-coatings employed appropriately can help reduce energy usage and generate savings. The coatings either absorb heat or permit its reflection, depending on their temperature. Research...
Materials that self-assemble and self-destruct once their work is done are highly advantageous for a number of applications - as components in temporary data storage systems or for medical devices. Fo...
Iranian researchers succeeded in the production of a nanocatalyst that is proper to be used in fuel cells.
Iranian researchers from Kashan University used a simple, fast and effective method to produce fullerene nanostructures by applying ultrasound waves.
Canadian researchers may have developed a new way to treat brain disorders.
Nanoparticles loaded with a cholesterol-lowering drug reduce inflammation in atherosclerotic plaques.
New sensor could be used to study the brain and heart.
Conduction and thermal radiation are two ways in which heat is transferred from one object to another: Conduction is the process by which heat flows between objects in physical contact, such as a pot...
Future electronics based on carbon nanotubes: A team at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign finds way to purify arrays of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs), possibly providing a step toward post-silicon circuits and devices
The exceptional properties of tiny molecular cylinders known as carbon nanotubes have tantalized researchers for years because of the possibility they could serve as a successors to silicon in laying...
UK National Graphene Institute Selects Bruker as Official Partner: World-Leading Graphene Research Facility Purchases Multiple Bruker AFMs
Bruker Corporation (NASDAQ: BRKR) today announced an official partnership with the University of Manchester's National Graphene Institute (NGI), joining a select list of industrial collaborators. This...
Carbon nanotube computing? Single-walled carbon nanotube composites show great promise for many things -- including use as a material in 'unconventional' computing
As we approach the miniaturization limits of conventional electronics, alternatives to silicon-based transistors--the building blocks of the multitude of electronic devices we've come to rely on--are...
Device extracts rare tumor cells using sound: Microfluidic chip developed by CMU President Suresh and collaborators uses acoustic waves to separate circulating tumor cells from blood cells
-A simple blood test may one day replace invasive biopsies thanks to a new device that uses sound waves to separate blood-borne cancer cells from white blood cells.
Stanford University scientists have invented the first high-performance aluminum battery that's fast-charging, long-lasting and inexpensive. Researchers say the new technology offers a safe alternativ...
This potentially scalable graphene production method has just been published in Advanced Functional Materials by the ICN2 Nanobioelectronics and Biosensors Group, led by ICREA Prof Arben Merkoçi, in c...
Better sensors for medical imaging, contraband detection: Magnetic-field detector is 1,000 times more efficient than its predecessors
MIT researchers have developed a new, ultrasensitive magnetic-field detector that is 1,000 times more energy-efficient than its predecessors. It could lead to miniaturized, battery-powered devices for...
Iranian researchers from Mashhad University of Medical Sciences proposed the application of egg white as the size-controlling agent in the production of oxide nanoparticles.
Iranian researchers from Bu-Ali Sina University of Hamedan succeeded in the production of a sensor which can be used in a sensitive tool to measure an anti-depression drug.
