A novel electro-thermal nanoprobe can independently control voltage and temperature at a nanometer-scale point contact. It can also measure the temperature-dependent voltage at a nanometer-scale point contact.
In an example of life imitating art, biologists and bioengineers at UC San Diego have created a living neon sign composed of millions of bacterial cells that periodically fluoresce in unison like blinking light bulbs.
What happens when living cells take up nanoparticles, those tiny entities that could offer new ways of delivering drugs into the body? A new study has tracked the progress of nanoparticles as cells divide, and their findings.
