Nanogel heals burn wounds faster

Researchers at the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology have developed a nanogel that can accelerate the healing of burn wounds to minimize the risk of infection and scarring. The technology is based on IBN's proprietary self-assembling ultrashort peptide technology, which are short sequences of amino acids.

X-rays, computer simulations reveal crystal growth

Taking a step toward much-coveted flexible electronics, an international research team that figured out how to coat an organic material as a thin film - like spreading butter on toast - wanted a closer look at why their spreadable organic semiconductor grew like it did.

Accoustic tweezers can grip microparticles

Researchers have discovered that ultrasonic waves can be used to grab several microparticles at a time, effectively creating a pair of invisible 'ultrasonic hands' that can move tiny objects, such as cells, under a microscope.

Nanoparticle ink for rapid diagnosis

The incorporation of nanoparticles of gold or silver into conventional ink, the same ink as in our ballpoints or pens, is an advanced solution in identifying molecules in fields such as medical diagnosis, biology, the environment, safety, etc.

A new way to identify the atomic origin of molecular valence electrons

Due to the delocalization of molecular orbitals valence shell spectroscopy does not allow distinction between individual atoms. Here, the authors show that for photoionization the difference in mass - and hence recoil momentum - between atoms in a diatomic molecule allows site selective emission to be observed.
