Scrutinizing the tip of molecular probes: Nature of interaction of probe molecules on the surface of oxide particles elucidated

March 8, 2016 - 7:45am
Studies of molecules confined to nano- or micropores are of considerable interest to physicists. That's because they can manipulate or stabilise molecules in unstable states or obtain new materials wi...

The secret to 3-D graphene? Just freeze it: New study shows how researchers tame the notoriously fickle supermaterial in aerogel form with 3-D printer and ice

March 8, 2016 - 7:45am
Graphene is a wonder material saddled with great expectations. Discovered in 2004, it is 1 million times thinner than a human hair, 300 times stronger than steel and it's the best known conductor o...

Nanoscale rotor and gripper push DNA origami to new limits: Dietz lab's latest DNA nanomachines demonstrate dynamics and precision

March 8, 2016 - 7:45am
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

March 8, 2016 - 7:45am
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.
