A report by the Innovation Society in Switzerland summarizes the first results of the platform Nano-Regulation and provides recommendations for further steps towards a sustainable regulatory framework for nanotechnologies and nanosciences.
Using a nanoscale, drug-loaded liposome and a pressure-driven drug administration technique known as convection-enhanced delivery, researchers have developed an efficient method of getting anticancer drugs into the brain and keeping them there.
Physicists at JILA have designed and demonstrated a highly sensitive new tool for real-time analysis of the quantity, structure, and dynamics of a variety of atoms and molecules simultaneously, even in miniscule gas samples.
A group of theoretical physicists at the University of Arkansas/ has demonstrated that under applied voltages, thin films composed of technologically important ferroelectric materials form nanobubbles, which have the potential to become a way to store lots of information in a tiny space.
University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) nanotechnologists have made alcohol- and hydrogen-powered artificial muscles that are 100 times stronger than natural muscles, able to do 100 times greater work per cycle and produce, at reduced strengths, larger contractions than natural muscles.
Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have announced that they have bridged a major obstruction in the creation of nanoscale electronics by developing a simple, reliable and observable method of creating tiny, tiny gaps between electrodes.
Researchers have produced their first working prototype of a new ultrashort pulse laser. The new technology could significantly reduce the cost of doing business across industries ranging from telecommunications to medical diagnostics.
