Using aluminum nanostructures could provide a vivid, low-cost alternative for producing digital color.
Researchers determined the interface strength between boron nitride nanotubes and epoxy and other polymers.
The goal of a vast amount of nanomedicine research is the perfect drug carrier: it is injected into the body and transports itself to the correct target, such as a tumor, and delivers the required therapeutic drug dose at this target. This idealized concept was first proposed at the beginning of the 20th century and was nicknamed the 'magic bullet' concept. Taking this 'bullet' concept literally, researchers have developed acoustically triggered microcannons, capable of versatile loading and effective firing of nanobullets, as novel tools toward advancing microscale tissue penetration of therapeutic payloads.
The successful implementation of graphene-based devices invariably requires the precise patterning of graphene sheets at both the micrometer and nanometer scale. It appears that 3D-printing techniques are an attractive fabrication route towards three-dimensional graphene structures. Researchers have now used flakes of chemically modified graphene, namely graphene oxide GO and its reduced form rGO, together with very small amounts of a responsive polymer, to formulate water based ink or pastes to be used in 3D printers.
DARPA selects 10 performers to develop technologies that bridge the existing manufacturing gap between nano-scale pieces and millimeter-scale components.
Magnesium infused with dense silicon carbide nanoparticles could be used for airplanes, cars, mobile electronics and more.
In what could prove to be a significant advance in the fabrication of graphene-based nanodevices, researchers have discovered a new mechanism for assembling two-dimensional molecular 'islands' that could be used to modify graphene at the nanoscale.
Mice tumor free and protected from metastases after treatment.
Cheap, flexible, wireless graphene communication devices such as mobile phones and healthcare monitors can be directly printed into clothing and even skin, researchers have demonstrated.
Predictions of physicists recently lead to the discovery of a material with special electric properties which engages the interest of plastics producing industry.
New sunscreen encased in nanoparticles eliminates cancer-causing potential of traditional sunscreens.
Researchers have developed flexible wire-shaped microsupercapacitors that can be woven into a jacket, shirt or dress.
A new material that is both highly transparent and electrically conductive could make large screen displays, smart windows and even touch screens and solar cells more affordable and efficient, according to materials scientists and engineers who have discovered just such a material.
A new process that uses vapour - rather than liquid - to grow designer crystals could lead to a new breed of faster, more powerful electronic devices.
Chemists have developed a novel type of firefighting foam based on inorganic silica nanoparticles. The new foam beats existing analogues in fire extinguishing capacity, thermal and mechanical stability and biocompatibility.
NANoREG is the first FP7 project to deliver the answers needed by regulators and legislators on EHS by linking them to a scientific evaluation of data and test methods.
A new class of superhydrophobic nanomaterials might simplify the process of protecting surfaces from water.
System combines biological ion channels with solid-state transistors to create a new kind of electronics.
Researchers have developed a new drug delivery technique that uses a biodegradable liquid metal to target cancer cells. The liquid metal drug delivery method promises to boost the effect of cancer drugs.
The membrane is partly made from silicon and overcomes several challenges of existing designs by tolerating the harsh conditions inside desalination plant equipment.
