Nanoscale rotor and gripper push DNA origami to new limits: Dietz lab's latest DNA nanomachines demonstrate dynamics and precision
Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have built two new nanoscale machines with moving parts, using DNA as a programmable, self-assembling construction material. In the journal Scien...
Graphene slides smoothly across gold: Professor Xinliang Feng co-authors publication in Science journal
Since it produces almost no friction at all, it could drastically reduce energy loss in machines when used as a coating, as the researchers report in the journal Science.
Researchers at the Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information, the University of Vienna, and the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona have achieved a new milestone in quantum physics: they were...
A new one atom-thick flat material that could upstage the wonder material graphene and advance digital technology has been discovered by a physicist at the University of Kentucky working in collaborat...
Conductive tracks are usually hard printed on a board. But those recently developed at EPFL are altogether different: they are almost as flexible as rubber and can be stretched up to four times their...
Iranian researchers synthesized nanostructured thin films that have application in the production of electrical and optical devices, including solar cells, gas sensors and LEDs.
The beginning of the end for encryption schemes? New quantum computer, based on five atoms, factors numbers in a scalable way
What are the prime factors, or multipliers, for the number 15? Most grade school students know the answer 3 and 5 by memory. A larger number, such as 91, may take some pen and paper. An even large...
Carbon nanotubes improve metals longevity under radiation: Aluminum used in nuclear reactors and other harsh environments may last longer with new treatment
One of the main reasons for limiting the operating lifetimes of nuclear reactors is that metals exposed to the strong radiation environment near the reactor core become porous and brittle, which can...
GLOBALFOUNDRIES, a leading provider of advanced semiconductor manufacturing technology, announced today that Alain Mutricy has joined the company as senior vice president of the Product Management Gro...
TX68: Trash or Treasure? As asteroid TX68 nears its close approach on March 8, Dr. John Lewis, chief scientist at Deep Space Industries, discusses whether or not its a good mining prospect
A small asteroid called 2013 TX68 is due to fly past Earth next Tuesday, March 8. And while TX68 poses no threat to our planet this time around the latest NASA projection has the asteroid missing us...
