Researchers designed a novel bottom-up scalable process, using low cost chemical ingredients, to create three dimensional porous architectures from silica - with a complexity rivalling that found in nature.
A brand-new competition, awarding finalists the opportunity to present their entries at the 2016 USA Science and Engineering Festival and compete for cash prizes, opens today for high school students interested in science, engineering and superpowers.
Researchers have developed a new family of nanocarriers, called 3HM, that meets all the size and stability requirements for effectively delivering therapeutic drugs to the brain for the treatment of a deadly form of cancer known as glioblastoma multiforme.
Researchers have devised a groundbreaking 'Water-in-Salt' aqueous Lithium ion battery technology that could provide power, efficiency and longevity comparable to today's Lithium-ion batteries, but without the fire risk, poisonous chemicals and environmental hazards of current Lithium batteries.
Researchers have introduced a new type of fiber-shaped supercapacitor for energy-storage textiles. Thanks to their shape memory, these textiles could potentially adapt to different body types: shapes formed by stretching and bending remain 'frozen', but can be returned to their original form or reshaped as desired.
Traditional computer tomography can only be used to determine the density but not the local orientation of the underlying nanostructure. Researchers have now overcome this limitation thanks to an innovative computer-based algorithm.
