Nanoslinky: A novel nanofluidic technology for DNA manipulation and measurement

Remember Slinky, the coiled metal spring that "walks" down stairs with just a push, momentum and gravity? Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have developed their own version of this classic - albeit 10 million times smaller - as a novel technology for manipulating and measuring DNA molecules and other nanoscale materials.

Nanotechnology solar cell turns windows into power generators

Imagine a world where the windows of high-rise office buildings are powerful energy producers, offering its inhabitants much more than some fresh air, light and a view. For the past four years a team of researchers from Flinders University has been working to make this dream a reality - and now the notion of solar-powered windows could be coming to a not too distant future near you.

Nanoschleuse auf Molekularebene

Ein Forscherteam der TU Muenchen und der Goethe Universitaet Frankfurt hat ein System aus festkoerperbasierten Nanoporen entwickelt, mit dem sich einzelne Molekuele identifizieren lassen. Gegenueber frueheren Arbeiten auf diesem Gebiet haben die Wissenschaftler erreicht, dass der Sensor zwei Eigenschaften vereint: er reagiert auf einzelne Molekuele und erkennt gleichzeitig ihre Identitaet.
