Low-cost, hybrid thermoelectrics

Scientists at the Berkeley Lab constructed a nanoscale composite thermoelectric material by wrapping a polymer that conducts electricity around a nanorod of tellurium - a metal coupled with cadmium in today's most cost-effective solar cells. This composite material is easily spin cast or printed into a film from a water-based solution.

Nanomedicine drug hits brain tumor

Employing new drug-engineering technology, a research team has created a 'nanobioconjugate' drug that may be given by intravenous injection and carried in the blood to target a brain tumor. It is engineered to specifically permeate the tumor cell wall, entering endosomes, mobile compartments within cells.
