Researchers demonstrate a new method of probing optical near-fields within 1 nm distance from the surface of a nanoscale metal tip. The method is based on rescattering of electrons driven by short laser pulses.
A delegation of academics and PhD students from the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials (BCFN) has been promoting the University and meeting colleagues in top academic and research institutions in China. The aim was to raise the profile of Bristol and pave the way for student exchange, recruitment, and development of joint research projects.
A team of researchers led by San Francisco State University's Weining Man is the first to build and demonstrate the ability of two-dimensional disordered photonic band gap material, designed to be a platform to control light in unprecedented ways.
While scientists develop new drugs to treat a multitude of conditions, nanotechnology is pushing the boundaries of how we deliver them to patients - targeting delivery to cancer cells and giving a drug dose once a month rather than every day.
A multi-institutional team of engineers has developed a new approach to the fabrication of nanostructures for the semiconductor and magnetic storage industries. This approach combines advanced ink-jet printing technology with self-assembling block copolymers.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new theoretical model that will speed the development of new nanomaterial alloys that retain their advantageous properties at elevated temperatures.
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been of high interest because of their potential to complement or to replace current biomedical sensor and assay techniques. By taking advantage of their unique electrical and optical properties, CNTs can be integrated into highly sensitive sensors and probes.
Researchers report the first experimental evidence that supports the theory that a soccer ball-shaped nanoparticle commonly called a buckyball is the result of a breakdown of larger structures rather than being built atom-by-atom from ground up.
UT Arlington's Nanotechnology Research and Education Center joined the University's Shimadzu Institute for Research Technologies on Sept. 1 in an effort to better support faculty research, lower operating costs and adapt to user needs.
