Nanosponges lessen severity of Streptococcal infections

In a new study, researchers show that engineered nanosponges that are encapsulated in the membranes of red blood cells can reduce the severity of infections caused by group A Streptococcus, the bacteria responsible for strep throat and life-threatening infections.

A new system of building structures based on nanostrutured concrete

Scientists created several types of building blocks based on nanostructured high-strength lightweight concrete, reinforced with skew-angular composite coarse grids. The development has unique characteristics, enabling the increase of load-carrying capability by more than 200% and decrease in specific density of the construction by 80%.

From abundant hydrocarbons to rare spin liquids

Scientists have discovered how to take hydrocarbon molecular components, dress them with electrons, each of which carries a small compass - an unpaired spin - and pack them together like cookies in a box to create a quantum spin liquid - a long-sought hypothetical state of matter.

Chip-based nanoscopy: Microscopy in HD quality

Physicists have developed a photonic chip that makes it possible to carry out super-resolution light microscopy, also called nanoscopy, with conventional microscopes. In nanoscopy, the position of single fluorescent molecules can be determined with a precision of just a few nanometers.
