IIK4 Technological Alliance has designed a low-cost, rapid diagnostic device for detecting the presence of Salmonella spp. and other bacteria in less than one hour, a much shorter time than current systems. Unlike others, this project used clinical samples directly, without prior treatment in a laboratory.
Engineers at Purdue and Stanford universities have created stretchable electrodes to study how cardiac muscle cells, neurons and other cells react to mechanical stresses from heart attacks, traumatic brain injuries and other diseases.
In a report published by DEFRA this week, the Institute of Occupational Medicine, Edinburgh, together with a team of multi-disciplinary experts presents an informed commentary and research agenda toward elucidating the importance of translocation in nanoparticle toxicology.
Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have discovered a new method for controlling the nature of graphene, bringing academia and industry potentially one step closer to realizing the mass production of graphene-based nanoelectronics.
After announcing last April a method for growing exceptionally long, straight, numerous and well-aligned carbon cylinders only a few atoms thick, a Duke University-led team of chemists has now modified that process to create exclusively semiconducting versions of these single-walled carbon nanotubes.
The smallest mechanical switch plus an electronic switch of a type never seen before. That's how physicist Marius Trouwborst sums up the results of his PhD research on electric current through atoms and molecules.
Elsevier today announced the launch of SciTopics, a free online expert-generated knowledge sharing service for the research community to quickly offer scientific, technical and medical knowledge on a variety of subjects.
The Josephson effect is the phenomenon of current flow across two weakly coupled superconductors, separated by a very thin insulating barrier. It has important applications in quantum-mechanical circuits, such as superconducting quantum interference devices.
Jordi Pascual, Director del Institut Catala de Nanotecnologia, y Nicolas Garcia, Director del laboratorio de Fisica de Sistemas pequenos y Nanotecnologia, nos acompanan en el plato para ver las posibilidades de esta ciencia tan prometedora.
