Sound waves create whirlpools to round up tiny signs of disease: New technique could form the basis of a small, inexpensive point-of-care device for early disease diagnosis
Mechanical engineers at Duke University have demonstrated a tiny whirlpool that can concentrate nanoparticles using nothing but sound. The innovation could gather proteins and other biological structu...
First 3-D observation of nanomachines working inside cells: Researchers headed by IRB Barcelona combine genetic engineering, super-resolution microscopy and biocomputation to allow them to see in 3-D the protein machinery inside living cells
Currently, biologists who study the function of protein nanomachines isolate these complexes in test tubes, divorced from the cell, and then apply in vitro techniques that allow them to observe their...
Scientists unveil new form of matter: Time crystals: Physicists repeatedly tweaked a group of ions to create first example of a non-equilibrium material
To most people, crystals mean diamond bling, semiprecious gems or perhaps the jagged amethyst or quartz crystals beloved by collectors.
Sometimes old-school methods provide the best ways of studying cutting-edge tech and its effects on the modern world.
Boron atoms stretch out, gain new powers: Rice University simulations demonstrate 1-D material's stiffness, electrical versatility
Hold on, there, graphene. You might think you're the most interesting new nanomaterial of the century, but boron might already have you beat, according to scientists at Rice University.
Technology could be used to safely and reversibly “turn off” specific areas of the brain.
For this metal, electricity flows, but not the heat: Berkeley-led study finds law-breaking property in vanadium dioxide that could lead to applications in thermoelectrics, window coatings
There's a known rule-breaker among materials, and a new discovery by an international team of scientists adds more evidence to back up the metal's nonconformist reputation. According to a new study le...
Creating atomic scale nanoribbons: Researchers have demonstrated the first important step toward integrating atomically precise graphene nanoribbons (APGNRs) onto nonmetallic substrates
Silicon crystals are the semiconductors most commonly used to make transistors, which are critical electronic components used to carry out logic operations in computing. However, as faster and more po...
Synthetic nanoparticles achieve the complexity of protein molecules: Study published in Science reveals the structure of the largest gold nanoparticles to-date and the self-assembly mechanisms behind their formation
Chemists at Carnegie Mellon University have demonstrated that synthetic nanoparticles can achieve the same level of structural complexity, hierarchy and accuracy as their natural counterparts - biomol...
Simulations suggest that ultralow-power-consumption magnetic skyrmion devices could mimic the memory and learning functions in neural synapses.
A recent study, affiliated with UNIST has developed a new method of repairing injured bone using stem cells from human bone marrow and a carbon material with photocatalytic properties, which could lea...
Graphene's sleeping superconductivity awakens: Since its discovery in 2004, scientists have believed that graphene may have the innate ability to superconduct. Now Cambridge researchers have found a way to activate that previously dormant potential
Researchers have found a way to trigger the innate, but previously hidden, ability of graphene to act as a superconductor - meaning that it can be made to carry an electrical current with zero resista...
Bruker Announces Acquisition of Nanoindenting Leader Hysitron: Acquisition strengthens Brukers leading position in nanoanalysis and nanomechanical materials characterization
Bruker today announced that it has acquired Hysitron, Inc., a technology leader in the development, manufacture, and sale of nanomechanical test instrumentation. The acquisition adds Hysitrons innova...
A simple technique for producing oxide nanowires directly from bulk materials could dramatically lower the cost of producing the one-dimensional (1D) nanostructures. That could open the door for a bro...
News from Quorum: Experienced electron microscopist, David McCarthy, talks about working with Quorum and his use of their coaters and cryo-SEM preparation instrumentation
Quorum Technologies, market and technology leaders in electron microscopy coating and cryogenic preparation products, hear from experienced electron microscopist, David McCarthy, about his work using...
Tough aqua material for water purification: Decontamination of water with a robust and sustainable membrane assembled from 2 synergistically working components
Water purification processes usually make use of robust membranes for filtering off contaminants while working at high pressures. Can materials employing water as major component be made strong enough...
