Down to the quantum dot: Jülich researchers develop ultrahigh-resolution 3-D microscopy technique for electric fields
Using a single molecule as a sensor, scientists in Jülich have successfully imaged electric potential fields with unrivalled precision. The ultrahigh-resolution images provide information on the distr...
Miniature Technology, Large-Scale Impact: Winner of the 2015 Lindros Award for translational medicine, Kjeld Janssen is pushing the boundaries of the emerging lab-on-a-chip technology - See more at: http://www.news.ucsb.edu/2015/015744/miniature-technolog
The postage stamp-sized square of fused silica Kjeld Janssen is holding may not look like a whole lot to the untrained eye, but inside the clear chip lies the potential to improve how medicine and med...
The capacity of a lithium-ion battery can be nearly doubled by using an anode made from tiny nanoparticles of silicon wrapped in several layers of graphene.
Iranian researchers used a new method for the production of a type of nanoparticles, which does not require high temperature and therefore, it decreases the production cost.
A 'movie' of ultrafast rotating molecules at a hundred billion per second: A quantum wave-like nature was successfully observed in rotating nitrogen molecules
Can you imagine how subnano-scale molecules make an ultrafast rotation at a hundred billion per second? Do the ultrafast rotating subnano-scale molecules show a wave-like nature rather than particle-l...
Iranian researchers designed a biosensor with application in assessment of effectiveness of drugs on the stability of the four-strand structure of DNA to prevent the growth of cancer cells.
Clues to inner atomic life from subtle light-emission shifts: Hyperfine structure of light absorption by short-lived cadmium atom isotopes reveals characteristics of the nucleus that matter for high precision detection methods
Atoms absorb and emit light of various wavelengths. Physicists have long known that there are some tiny changes, or shifts, in the light that gets absorbed or emitted, due to the properties of the ato...
University of Southampton Professor Nikolay Zheludev has been awarded the Young Medal for 2015 by the Institute of Physics. The award recognises his global leadership and pioneering, seminal work in o...
From targeted drug delivery to the self-assembly of nano robots, new research by Northumbria University, Newcastle, is using super-sized atoms to reveal the behaviour of liquids in microscopic channel...
Nanometrics Incorporated (NASDAQ:NANO), a leading provider of advanced process control systems, will release its second quarter 2015 financial results after market close on July 23, 2015. A conference...
New micro-supercapacitor structure inspired by the intricate design of leaves: A team of scientists in Korea has devised a new method for making a graphene film for supercapacitors
There was a time during the early development of portable electronics when the biggest hurdle to overcome was making the device small enough to be considered portable. After the invention of the micro...
Researchers at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) have identified a system that could store quantum information for longer times, which is critical for the futu...
Freezing single atoms to absolute zero with microwaves brings quantum technology closer: Atoms frozen to absolute zero using microwaves
Physicists at the University of Sussex have found a way of using everyday technology found in kitchen microwaves and mobile telephones to bring quantum physics closer to helping solve enormous scienti...
Fe3O4 particles smaller than 6 nm in size stay conducting.
Engineers at Oregon State University have invented a way to fabricate silver, a highly conductive metal, for printed electronics that are produced at room temperature.
When it comes to communicating with each other, some cells may be more "old school" than was previously thought.
In a step that overturns traditional assumptions and practice, researchers at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai and Institute for Plasma Research, Gandhi Nagar have fashioned bacteria...
Silica nanoparticles encapsulating natural essential oils could be used as disinfectants but may also help in wound healing.
New device might find applications in wearable electronics, health-monitoring systems and ultradense information-storage systems that mimic the structure of the brain.
Spintronics is an emerging field of electronics in which devices work by manipulating the quantum mechanical spin1 of electrons, in addition to their elementary electric charge. Just as conventional t...
