On the path toward molecular robots: Scientists at Japan's Hokkaido University have developed light-powered molecular motors that repetitively bend and unbend, bringing us closer to molecular robots.
Researchers are working on mimicking cellular systems to develop molecular motors that can move or even deliver drugs to target tissues. Engineering such motors may ultimately lead to molecular robots...
'Ruddlesden–Popper' devices have a photovoltaic efficiency as high as 12.52%, are photostable and resistant to heat and humidity.
The device could be used to make quantum logic gates based on electric spins as well as novel sensors that can detect nanoscale magnetic field changes.
'Origami' is reshaping DNA's future: Three leading researchers discuss how DNA may be used as a building material to help us develop a new generation of medicines, build electronic devices and probe the mysteries of proteins
Ten years after its introduction, DNA origami, a fast and simple way to assemble DNA into potentially useful structures, is finally coming into its own.
Sensing trouble: A new way to detect hidden damage in bridges, roads: University of Delaware engineers devise new method for monitoring structural health
Aging, deterioration and extreme events like earthquakes and hurricanes can take a toll on roads, bridges and other structures. With damage and defects often invisible, the search is on for systems th...
Flipping crystals improves solar-cell performance: Perovskite research team spin-casts crystals for efficient and resilient optoelectronic devices
In a step that could bring perovskite crystals closer to use in the burgeoning solar power industry, researchers from Los Alamos National Laboratory, Northwestern University and Rice University have t...
Bouncing droplets remove contaminants like pogo jumpers: Researchers at Duke University and the University of British Columbia are exploring whether surfaces can shed dirt without being subjected to fragile coatings
Scalpels that never need washing. Airplane wings that de-ice themselves. Windshields that readily repel raindrops. While the appeal of a self-cleaning, hydrophobic surface may be apparent, the extreme...
From super to ultra-resolution microscopy: A new method pushes the frontier in imaging resolution, with the potential to distinguish individual features in single molecules

Integrated trio of 2-D nanomaterials unlocks graphene electronics applications: Voltage-controlled oscillator developed at UC Riverside could be used in thousands of applications from computers to wearable technologies
Graphene has emerged as one of the most promising two-dimensional crystals, but the future of electronics may include two other nanomaterials, according to a new study by researchers at the University...
Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have been able to quantify fundamental physical limitations on the performance of cloaking devices, a technology...
Detecting pesticides and nerve gas in very low concentrations. An international team of researchers led by Ivo Stassen and Rob Ameloot from KU Leuven, Belgium, have made it possible.
Primary safety and feasibility endpoints achieved Preliminary positive signs of antitumoral effect in all evaluable patients Company preparing now registration clinical plan, including EU and USA
Nanometrics Incorporated (NASDAQ:NANO), a leading provider of advanced process control systems, will release its second quarter financial results after market close on July 26, 2016. A conference call...
