Researchers at Wake Forest University School of Medicine have destroyed prostate cancer tumors in mice by injecting them with specially-coated, miniscule carbon tubes and then superheating the tubes with a brief zap of a laser.
The funding will allow the ALS - one of the world's brightest sources of ultraviolet and soft x-ray beams - to upgrade its facilities and maintain its position at the cutting edge of soft x-ray science.
Researchers of the CAS Key Laboratory of Molecular Nanostructure and Nanotechnology successfully designed and synthesized a nanocomposite of LiFePO4 nanoparticles embedded in nanoporous carbon matrix as a superior cathode material for lithium-ion batteries.
In a report today at the 238th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society, scientists describe development of a test for performance of smudge- and reflection-resistant coatings and its use to determine how to improve that performance.
Friends of the Earth, Consumers Union, and the International Center for Technology Assessment (ICTA) released a report today detailing why consumers should be wary of sunscreens that contain nanomaterials.
Using thin films of silk as templates, researchers have incorporated inorganic nanoparticles that join with the silk to form strong and flexible composite structures that have unusual optical and mechanical properties.
After engineers and scientists at Virginia Tech, Harvard and Drexel finish studying the locomotion of fish in water, Michael Phelps may find he still has a few new ways to increase his own world-breaking Olympic times.
Good news for people fearful of needles and squeamish of shots: Scientists report the design of a painless patch that may someday render hypodermic needles - as well as annual flu shots - a thing of the past.
