Metallic-based film could be a real alternative to conventional warm gel and thermal packs for alleviating the pain caused by everyday sprains and strains, and might even help patients suffering from arthritis.
2500 nm wavelength IR beam separates out semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes from a mix of both semiconducting and metallic thanks to a phenomenon called thermocapillary flow.
Detecting gases wirelessly and cheaply: New sensor can transmit information on hazardous chemicals or food spoilage to a smartphone
MIT chemists have devised a new way to wirelessly detect hazardous gases and environmental pollutants, using a simple sensor that can be read by a smartphone.
Unusual Electronic State Found in New Class of Unconventional Superconductors: Finding gives scientists a new group of materials to explore to unlock secrets of some materials' ability to carry current with no energy loss
A team of scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory, Columbia Engineering, Columbia Physics and Kyoto University has discovered an unusual form of electronic...
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new lithography technique that uses nanoscale spheres to create three-dimensional (3-D) structures with biomedical, electronic and pho...
Two-dimensional (2D) layered materials are now attracting a lot of interest due to their unique optoelectronic properties at atomic thicknesses. Among them, graphene has been mostly investigated, but...
Biomimetic dew harvesters: Understanding how a desert beetle harvests water from dew could improve drinking water collection in dew condensers
Insects are full of marvels - and this is certainly the case with a beetle from the Tenebrionind family, found in the extreme conditions of the Namib desert. Now, a team of scientists has demonstrated...
Iranian researchers from Shiraz University produced a nanosensor during a laboratorial research which can be used in measuring naproxen drug.
Membrane nano-tomography in living cells: Label-free evanescent microscopy enables full-field and real-time tracking of membrane processes without signal fading and cell perturbation
Membranes play a pivotal role in numerous cell mechanisms, in particular for internalization, adhesion and motility studies. In terms of optical imaging of the membrane, special configurations are nee...
Cancer healthcare company Endomagnetics announced today that it has received Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to initiate a piv...
SUNY NanoCollege Celebrates Winter Commencement: Graduates To Pursue High-Tech Career And Educational Opportunities In New York State
As a testament to Governor Andrew Cuomo's innovation-driven agenda for strengthening New York State's high-tech workforce, thirty-two students at SUNY Polytechnic Institute's Colleges of Nanoscale Sci...
How can light which has been captured in a solar cell be examined in experiments? Jülich scientists have succeeded in looking directly at light propagation within a solar cell by using a trick. The ph...
Iranian researchers designed and produced special showcases for demonstration of historical artifacts in museums and libraries which can protect ancient artifacts against any damage and prevent their...
Iranian researchers succeeded in the production of a nanocatalyst with a very high level of distribution and stability in diesel engine fuels.
Arrowhead Research Corporation (NASDAQ: ARWR), a biopharmaceutical company developing targeted RNAi therapeutics, today announced that it has appointed Patrick O'Brien as General Counsel. In this role...
New research paves the way for nano-movies of biomolecules: Scientists use X-ray laser as ultra slow-motion camera
An international team, including scientists from DESY, has caught a light sensitive biomolecule at work with an X-ray laser. The study proves that X-ray lasers can capture the fast dynamics of biomole...
Laser sniffs out toxic gases from afar: System can ID chemicals in the atmosphere from a kilometer away
Scientists have developed a way to sniff out tiny amounts of toxic gases -- a whiff of nerve gas, for example, or a hint of a chemical spill -- from up to one kilometer away.
